How “Complete” of a Team are the Chiefs Heading Into the 2020 Season?

Five months ago the Chiefs were hoisting the Lombardi trophy after a dazzling comeback against the San Francisco 49’ers in the Super Bowl.

This last week they took care of their biggest offseason commitment in signing QB Pat Mahomes to a 10-year deal, the biggest in sports history.

So what else could be done to make the Chiefs a more “complete” team as they head into 2020? That’s a great question.

It’s also one that is being tackled by NFL.com, who came out with their list of the most “complete” teams in the league heading into this upcoming season.

The Chiefs do have some things to look out for, and they can’t fall asleep at the wheel if they want to be successful in defending their NFL championship from 2019.

Here’s what NFL.com had to say about how “complete” the Chiefs are:

3. Kansas City Chiefs

Please don’t misinterpret the Chiefs’ No. 3 ranking on this particular list. I’m picking them to win the Super Bowl. Just like I did last year. Shoot, with Patrick Mahomes now signed through the 2031 season, it’s hard to imagine a time when I won’t be picking Kansas City to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL, the best player in the NFL and the best show in sports today. Two teams sit above K.C. in this ranking because their rosters are more well-rounded. But with Mahomes’ singular greatness, the Chiefs enter the 2020 season as the definite team to beat.

And it’s not like the quarterback is surrounded by chopped liver. Home-run hitter Tyreek Hill headlines a receiver group that possesses incredible speed, talent and depth, while Travis Kelce’s the best tight end this side of George Kittle. In the draft, Brett Veach scooped up Clyde Edwards-Helaire, a dynamic all-purpose back whom Andy Reid described as being better than Brian Westbrook. The defense is highlighted by Pro Bowl DT Chris Jones. He’s a difference-making star — just look at how he wrecked the 49ers’ Super Bowl hopes — and K.C. needs to get him signed. Safety Tyrann Mathieu is a certified stud. So is edge menace Frank Clark.
