Good things for Kansas City Chiefs in 2020 – Super Bowl parade

With a championship must come a parade, right? Kansas City celebrated in style after their football team won its first Super Bowl in five decades. It was a cold day in February but that didn’t stop the thousands of people from flocking downtown to cheer on their boys.

The highlight of the parade was at the rally where Travis Kelce gave his infamous drunken speech where he once again shouted Beastie Boys lyrics at the top of his lungs. It really did feel surreal watching the parade, especially knowing just a month later, everyone’s worlds would be turned upside down.

Good things for Kansas City Chiefs in 2020 – Draft class

The Chiefs had the final pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft and used it on LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who had just won a National Championship months prior. He knew the feeling of defending the title and while Chiefs fans haven’t gotten to see him dominate as much as they’d hoped, it’s only his rookie year.

The Chiefs also drafted linebacker Willie Gay in the second round, offensive lineman Lucas Niang in round three, defensive back L’Jarius Sneed in the fourth round, defensive end Mike Danna in round five, and despite being out of picks, traded into the seventh round to land cornerback BoPete Keyes.

So far, Sneed has been the most impressive from this draft class, but there’s been a lot of promise with Gay and Danna as well. We haven’t seen much from Keyes yet, but he was clearly a project so that’s not surprising. Niang opted out but there are high hopes for him after what he was able to do at TCU.
