He isn't, though, so Kansas City sticks with the running back it originally selected. This came on the heels of trading DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts, so the decision to take a defensive tackle made sense.

The first is that not everyone in the organization appears sold on his NFL upside. Adding a quality cornerback in the draft might have helped the secondary come together, and so Seattle goes with Mississippi State product Cameron Dantzler here. With NFL schedules recently released, we can begin to break down the 2020 NFL season. One of Jacksonville's biggest issues was its run defense, which ranked 30th. "Really fired up where A.J.
