As a product of their four-win season, the Chiefs looked to capitalize on this year's draft. With seven picks, including the fifth overall pick, the big name selected was Eric Berry, a play-making safety.
However, the Chiefs drafted as much for character as for talent, as all of their first five picks were captains of their college teams.
A perfect example of this is tight end Tony Moeaki. While he only only had 76 catches for 953 yards and 11 touchdowns during his five-year college career at Iowa, coach Kirk Ferentz said he was one of the most important players in his 11 years. In his three professional games, Moeaki leads the Chiefs in receptions and targets.
The Chiefs' second-draft pick, Dexter McCluster has also made an immediate impact. In the Monday night season opener against San Diego, he returned a punt for a franchise record 94-yard touchdown. He has also taken snaps as the third running back behind Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles.
With their top three drafts already performing well, the future is bright in Kansas City.
