For me, the two biggest areas of concern for the Kansas City Chiefs are pass rush and safety. Frank Clark is gone with no replacement in sight. Tyrann Mathieu is a Free Agent. Dan Sorenson is probably not coming back.
At both defensive end and safety, there is very little in the cupboard. I like Mike Danna at DE and Juan Thornhill at safety, but even if those two players break-out as solid starters next year, there is still little depth at either position.
In the 2022 NFL Draft, defensive end is thought to be one of the deepest positions. There are potential impact rookies well into the middle rounds. That means drafting a defensive end in round 1 will be tempting, but not necessarily wise.
With the safety position, there are really only four players worthy of First Round consideration and three could be available at Pick 30. Kyle Hamilton from Notre Dame will be gone in the first ten picks.
The Combine revealed that Hill and Cine tested better as pure athletes than Brisker. However, the pre-combine tape shows that Brisker is a playmaking machine. There is no hint that he is too slow to be a rangy safety in the NFL.
Based on game film and the Chiefs needs, I think Hill and Brisker have a slight edge on Cine. I’m going with Daxton Hill from Michigan who was both productive on the field and showed great speed and quickness at the Combine.
