In his six years leading the Kansas City Chiefs, Brett Veach has established himself as one of the league’s premier general managers. He’s presided over six AFC West division titles, three Super Bowl appearances, and two championships as the Chiefs sit on the precipice of a dynasty.
Despite his relatively short tenure, one thing is clear: Veach is the greatest GM in Chiefs history.
While you could just say “he pushed the organization to draft Patrick Mahomes” and leave it at that, there are a few reasons that Veach is the best in the business.
3 Reasons Why Brett Veach is the Best GM in Chiefs History
1. Sustained Success
These are the glory years of one of the NFL’s proudest franchises. Mahomes is obviously the crown jewel, but you don’t host five consecutive AFC Championship games without stellar roster construction.
Veach has done a tremendous job surrounding Mahomes with talent, from Travis Kelce to a stout offensive line to strong special teams and defensive playmakers as well.
Over the last five seasons, the Chiefs are an NFL-best 64-18 in the regular season. By locking Mahomes up long-term, Veach ensured Kansas City will field a competitive team for the next decade.
There’s a reason sustained success is so difficult. Teams rarely continuously win year after year and the Chiefs’ incredible consistency is largely due to Veach’s work.
