The Kansas City Chiefs roster is hardly etched in stone, but now that the 2014 draft is just another page in the NFL's history book, ticket holders can now (more or less) gauge their expectations come Week 1.
Let's take a step backward.
Roughly two months ago, free agency robbed the Chiefs of some of their most valuable assets and made away like a tiptoeing thief in the night, all the while Kansas City's front office dangled a "DO NOT DISTURB" sign on the door while John Dorsey hibernated.
Or maybe not.
While Twitter flooded with "Why are we not going after anyone? Why are we so cheap? Ugh, typical Chiefs" rhetoric, Dorsey and Co. were branching out and planting a set of eyes on every college, flag and powderpuff football game this side of the hemisphere.
Proof, you ask?
Within the past 72 hours, the most buzz-worthy name on Kansas City Twitter has been a sixth-round Canadian offensive lineman. A rookie whose Scrabble subway of a name, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, still gives me a complex because I sound like an Italian Brad Pitt ("Bonjourno!") when trying to pronounce it.
Judging by Kansas City's draft, Dorsey did his due diligence. (If that's not a vocal warmup, it should be.)
Fortunately for Chiefs fans, on paper, it looks like Dorsey's eagle-eyed evaluating paid off.
