NFL Network Analyst Bucky Brooks: Chiefs Rank in the NFL's Top Ten Most Talented Teams

Where did the Chiefs fall on his top ten list?


NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks recently put together an article analyzing the league's top ten most talented rosters headed into 2015.

Here's what he said about the Chiefs, who came in at sixth on the list:

*"Blue chips (6): RB Jamaal Charles, OG Ben Grubbs, OLB Justin Houston, LB Derrick Johnson, WR Jeremy Maclin, NT Dontari Poe.*

*On the rise: TE Travis Kelce.*

Andy Reid inherited a talented roster when he took over the Chiefs in 2013, but he and John Dorsey definitely have added pieces to help the team become a viable contender in the AFC. Maclin jumps in as the WR1 to help alleviate the pressure on Charles to carry the offense. With Kelce showing potential as a true TE1, the Chiefs have a supporting cast that could help Alex Smith fully showcase his skills as an efficient game manager. On defense, the Chiefs are loaded up front, with Houston, Poe and Johnson anchoring a dominant front seven. Tamba Hali's no longer the blue-chip player he once was, but opponents still have to account for the 31-year-old. If Eric Berry, who is battling Hodgkin's lymphoma, eventually makes a return to the lineup, the Chiefs could have one of the scariest defenses in football."

The Seattle Seahawks topped the list, which you can find here.
