2022 Recap
In our 5th straight home AFC Championship game, we avenged the '22 loss to the Bengals and went to our 3rd Super Bowl in 4 years, winning the whole damned thing.

It was a "re-tooling" year, stemming from Veach's decision to cut ties with long time starters like Tyrann Matheiu, Charvarius Ward, Daniel Sorenson, and most notably, Tyreek Hill. The talking heads wrote us off before the season began when the rest of the AFC West spent half a billion dollars to take us down, but we didn't write back.

Instead, Veach and co put on an elite performance in the offseason, bringing in some notable FA's (Reid, Dunlap, JJSS, MVS) and absolutely crushing the draft. Of our 10 picks, 9 played significant snaps and there was extreme value found late in the draft. Additionally, there was a mid-season move to acquire Kadarius Toney and it paid off when it counted most.

Two years ago, Veach attacked the OL in the offseason with incredible results. Last year, he attacked the secondary and infused it with youth, setting that position group up for years. This year, there's an opportunity to overhaul both the DLine and the WR rooms.

In addition to the Draft & FA decisions, there are some contract decisions to be made on our own high-impact players, like OBJ, Chris Jones, Sneed, and Gay.

This is the 12th year in a row that we will be tracking the college players the Chiefs have publicly or privately expressed interest in leading up to the NFL Draft.

No dancing around it - last year, this thread has a poor showing, but not for lack of trying. Cards were held tightly to the vest, as many of the draft picks revealed that they had, in fact, met with the Chiefs. It was just never reported. The only "hit" was a PS QB in Chris Oladokun, who was drafted by the Steelers and snagged after final cuts.

For those who are new: the way this operates is that we collectively monitor various social media sources, blogs, articles and reports for news of the Chiefs' interest in a certain player. When posted in this thread, I will update the OP to include the player. *Please provide the link to the article, the players name, position and team.

I am going to try to link to player profiles when they exist, courtesy of The Draft Network, other sites' write ups, or their team's website.

If we add a few more guys in the coming weeks, we'll be back to normal, baby.

Hell yeah. Good work once again.

I do know that David Carr said we had interest in Jahmyr Gibbs at the Senior Bowl on one of his TV blips but I have not been able to find something to give you to verify for this exercise. Just call it a micro-note to put in the back of your head if it were to happen.

Do you think the chiefs not meeting with JSN means that they aren’t interested/ and dont think they have a chance to get him, or are they hiding their true draft crush and are planning to jump the whole NFL to go get him in the top 12 Mahomes style?

We don't hear about every meeting and visit. It's probable they did at least have him get checked by the medical staff and I'm sure they at least talked to him informally.

I could be mistaken but teams don't really blow their top 30 visits on players that they really love. Sure, they could bring him in to talk to him and put him through some board work but it's usually reserved for guys they have questions on.
Tribal Warfare 04:03 PM 04-13-2023
