The Marty Lounge>How do you think this draft class impacts this year?
RunKC 08:54 AM 05-03-2021
Was just thinking about a ton of teams saying they wonít show up to voluntary OTAís and believe some rookies wonít either. Thatís definitely going to hurt.

From our class, I think Creed Humphrey is the only player who could be a starter opening day. Iím not completely confident in that considering he needs reps with Patrick but I think thereís a strong possibility there.

Bolton is probably not starting but will play roughly 25% of the snaps early if I had to guess. I think theyíll take the Willie Gay approach around mid season where he played some but not a ton. Unfortunately weíll have to suffer watching Neimann a bit longer in September and most of October before Bolton starts taking over.

I think we could definitely see Gray and Powell early but on specialty plays starting off. Gray could easily be a FB/TE ace early and Powell on red zone plays and a few others. Theyíll get STís snaps for sure

Kaindoh is too raw. Heíll get some reps but not many early IMO. Think they want to work on his technique as he develops. Heís a guy to watch later in the year.

Smith is probably going to be the backup this year. Heís definitely beating out Wylie but I keep thinking Andy will start LDT at RG for continuity bc thereís just no way in hell heís starting potentially 3 players with zero NFL snaps all next to each other in week 1. Would really like to see the kid in as an extra lineman on speciality plays.

This kid is undrafted but I think that BYU kid could really be Dirty Danís 2022 replacement and could beat out Watts. Heís athletic as hell and should be money on STís.

Anyone disagree? Think one of these guys gets more playing time early?

Think we see Noah quite a bit and from early on too.
Chiefs like to wear the fuck out of Kelce, and giving him more regular breathers can only give the guy even more juice when a big play is there to be made.

Creed Humphrey starts.
Nick Bolton starts in the base 4-3 defense.

Outside of those two and special teams reps, I don't see a ton of snaps for the other rookies but would love to be proven wrong.

Creed starts

Bolton doesn't start but Hitchens better not miss any time cause he might not have a starting spots to come back to if he's out too long

Traditionally Andy Reid and Spags prefer to roll with veteran players, especially to start the season. Development and injuries will be key. Obviously Humphrey has the best shot of playing significant time early and often.

I'm anxious to see Bolton out there. We haven't had a true enforcer up the middle since Derek Johnson. Hopefully that changes sooner than later.

I think we might get 4 starters (2 this year) out of a draft where we didn't have a first round pick. That's insane...

Didn't someone already say he might start at WLB?...

I think Bolton plays like a prototypical MLB, but he’s a little undersized. Which might not be a bad thing with the direction football has gone being more of a passing game now. I think he plays more than Gay did his rookie year. I think Gay has the higher ceiling but Bolton has the higher floor. Bolton may get some snaps at OLB to get experience when we play 3 LB’s, but it won’t be long before he’s the man in the middle and will likely get some weight added.

Obviously Creed will start at C and make the biggest impact. Noah will be a nice addition as another TE option plus the ability to replace Sherman a little in the backfield. Obviously Powell will see the field and it’ll be interesting to see how WR shakes out between him and the rest. Typically it takes over a year for a WR to learn Reid’s offense, but they can design some plays for him.

Veach said Powell will be a great addition to pair with Tyreek and Mecole. Didnít even mention Pringle Or Robinson. Powell will definitely be seeing some playing time this year. I say he gets more than 500 yards Recieving and 3 TDs

That doesnít necessarily mean immediately. Wasnít Veach just hyping up Pringle less than a week ago?

We can save 2 million if we trade his ass next month, but I don't really see who would trade for him. I also think the Chiefs like him and the story. So he makes the roster, adds great depth, and waits for an opportunity to play.
I think you are right but that asswipe canuck will piss Andy off if he checks into camp as a butterball orderly. He better be getting some work in. If Long has anything left in the tank then I hope he gets a fair shot. Long plays with a mean streak that this o line has been lacking in recent years.

Humphrey Powell and Bolton are all solid picks and will be starters. Rest are all busts. Mark my words

With the RG spot still in the air, I don't see Creed starting game 1 unless there's an injury. By the end of the season, yes. Bolton will see some limited action at the start and his progress will dictate how much more we see. Kaindoh will be a rotational piece as long as everyone else stays healthy. Gray will be the 3rd TE/H-back at the start of the season. His playing time will depend on how much he bulks up and if he can beat out Bell. Smith will be brought along slowly. Barring injury, his time is next year. Powell could be the wild card. A 5th year senior that didn't play much until his last year is suspect, but the guy has talents. The key for him will be how fast he can pick up the playbook.
