2. Charles Omenihu
While we expected a sizable impact from the Omenihu, I don't think even the most ardent Chiefs fan saw THAT kind of performance coming in just his first game with the team.
In 51% of the snaps, the fifth-year defensive end recorded a sack, a deflected pass and two QB hits, routinely beating his man and causing havoc in the backfield.
Omenihu wasted no time making his presence felt. After serving a six-game suspension for domestic violence, the former 49er didn't miss a beat.
The Chiefs already finished second in the NFL in sacks last year and were destroying opponents up front. Adding Omenihu to the mix raises the ceiling of an already-elite defense and we saw that on full display in Week 7.
With a pressure rate of 23.5% in the win, Omenihu joins Chris Jones and George Karlaftis as lethal pass rushers who can flip any game at any moment.
The Chiefs defense currently allows the second-fewest points per game in the league (15.0). Given the unfortunate injury status of Nick Bolton, the rest of the unit needs to step up in future weeks to maintain that fantastic mark.
If Omenihu's debut was any indication, we're going to be just fine.
The last player on this list was welcomed back with open arms and delivered in spectacular fashion.
