Quarterback: The Chiefs seem to have solved this issue by adding Smith, but must find a backup as Brady Quinn appears to be on his way out.
Running back: No one is against the idea of having Jamaal Charles as the starting running back. However, the project with Peyton Hillis did not work and the Chiefs may need a backup running back to help Charles.
Fullback: The Chiefs need to bring in a fullback after running a different offense, similar to the New England Patriots, where there were no fullbacks. Instead, players who originally played running back would line up in the fullback spot.
Wide Receiver: Bowe has been re-signed, but Jon Baldwin is not a legitimate No. 2 wide receiver. Unless head coach Andy Reid sees something in Baldwin, expect the Chiefs to target a wide receiver to come in and help the Chiefs.
Tight End: Tony Moeaki has a lot of potential as a tight end and showed that during his rookie season. But with veteran Kevin Boss out the door, the Chiefs have to consider recruiting another tight end.
Offensive Line: The Chiefs don't have a lot of issues here. The left tackle spot most likely will go to either Albert or Joeckel. The only glaring hole on the line is in the middle. Can Rodney Hudson return strong in the middle?
Defensive Line: Dontari Poe will return as the team's nose tackle while Jackson plays at left end. The right end spot is wide open with Dorsey and Pitoitua leaving, unless one of them re-signs.
Outside Linebacker: This might be Kansas City's biggest strength. Tamba Hali and Justin Houston both played in the Pro Bowl this past season. The only reason the Chiefs should go after an outside linebacker in free agency or the draft is to add depth.
Inside Linebacker: Derrick Johnson has evolved into a premier linebacker, but he needs someone else to help him out beside him. The Chiefs lost Jovan Belcher during the season and Siler's contract is up.
Cornerback: Brandon Flowers is still working to earn that elite label as a cornerback. His duo with Brandon Carr was obviously missed after a terrible half-season from Stanford Routt. In a passing league, cornerbacks have to be high on the priority list.
Safety: The Chiefs have had good production from Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis. Abram Elam also played a lot last season. Despite an overhaul with the staff, the Chiefs kept defensive backs coach Emmitt Thomas, who played a big role in Berry dominating his rookie season.
Kicker: Ryan Succop is the guy. However, he needs to be more consistent with some of his close-range kicks.
Punter: With Colquitt re-signing, it's safe to say this position is cleared.
Kick Returner/Punt Returner: Dexter McCluster and Javier Arenas have not made much noise in special teams throughout their career. Both players came from the same draft class and in the second-round in 2010. Both players made a lot of noise in their debut against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1, but have not been noticed since then.
