Maurice Jones-Drew: The Chiefs Are My Super Bowl Favorite

MJD’s early pick for the next Super Bowl champ is the Kansas City Chiefs



Retired NFL running back and current analyst Maurice Jones-Drew recently sat down with studio analyst Akbar Gbajabiamila to discuss their early predictions for Super Bowl LI, and the former Jacksonville Jaguar and Oakland Raider selected the Kansas City Chiefs as his pick.

"I'm going to go with the Kansas City Chiefs, a team I have winning the AFC West," he said. "The reason being is this. Alex Smith is there. (Jeremy) Maclin is there. You get Jamaal Charles back with the running backs you already had."

Jones-Drew went on to address how the offensive line is still in tact, and although the Chiefs did lose Sean Smith in free agency, he likes the prospects he sees in the upcoming draft later this month.

"You can draft a guy because the way this draft is set up is defensively," he added. "I think they just keep clicking, they keep getting better. They're a team that could make it all the way."

The Chiefs are set to play Gbajabiamila's selection, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in the 2016 regular season.
