The Kansas City Chiefs 2012 depth chart is fairly predictable heading into training camp. Scott Pioli's past depth perception has appeared short-sighted, but the roster's current makeup proves that hindsight is 20/20.
Last season, a sizable portion of Kansas City's second-stringers deserved to be cut. The roster listed running backs that interpreted their title literally, safeties that posed risks and tight ends resembling loose ends.
During the 2010 playoff run, the production from familiar names was off the chart. In 2011, the same names were off the chart, literally, due to a contagious injury bug with an unhealthy appetite.
This offseason, Pioli signed a moderate amount of potential starters, but his primary interest was restocking the refreshments.
Kansas City's lackadaisical attitude toward replacements has bitten the team in recent seasons. While bad apples grow on trees, money doesn't.
Following some spring cleaning, the Chiefs depth chart appears as sharp as an arrowhead.
