It is not an easy task to get to a Super Bowl, let alone win one then return the next year. While the Kansas City Chiefs fell short of defending their title, losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this year, they are well-equipped to get back to the promised land and even potentially be on the verge of a dynasty.
They then made a splash this past week when they dealt their first rounder this year (the 31st overall pick) amongst other picks to the Baltimore Ravens, landing Pro Bowl offensive tackle Orlando Brown and the second round pick of Baltimore’s in exchange. They have wasted no time rebuilding their offensive line, and look to continue to solidify any soft spots on the roster.
Can Chiefs get back to Super Bowl?
Next, we will take a look at what the Chiefs have managed thus far in the offseason to get back to the Super Bowl, and how they can improve their roster further in the 2021 NFL Draft in order to continue to improve their roster as well. After the trade for Brown, the current draft picks owned by Kansas City are the 58th and 63rd overall picks, the 144th overall pick, two fifth rounders, and a sixth rounder.
How can the Chiefs manage the draft despite lacking a first round pick? We take a look there next as they still have a year before the massive cap hits of Patrick Mahomes and Chris Jones kick in. With the 2021 NFL Draft on the horizon, look for the Chiefs to continue to make waves across the league.
