Despite bringing in what many thought was a pretty good haul in the 2013 NFL draft, the Chiefs don't really have anyone who jumps out at you as a Rookie of the Year candidate.
Top overall pick Eric Fisher out of Central Michigan is an offensive tackle. While it is one of the most vital positions on the team, it is a difficult position to statistically quantify, and thus it's often ignored like the rest of the offensive line, sadly, when award season rolls around.
Unfortunately for Kansas City fans, in order to have a legitimate Rookie of the Year candidate, Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles would likely have to not see the field. Charles is currently sitting out the preseason with a lingering right foot strain.
Former Arkansas Razorback and third-round pick Knile Davis gives the Chiefs the best shot at a Rookie of the Year candidate.
Davis is a more traditional size/strength/speed running back. He brings a 230-pound frame with 4.37 speed, a 570-pound squat, and the ability to pump out 35 reps on the 225-pound bench press to the field.
Davis isn't nearly as agile and doesn't have the short-area burst that Charles brings to the table, but he does bring more size and great long speed. He has shown flashes this spring on screens, working in Charles' stead.
