Steve Spagnuolo says Chiefs rookie CB Trent McDuffie is doing an ‘outstanding job’
“[He has done a] great job,” Spagnuolo said of McDuffie. “I think he’s done an outstanding job. Now we’ll probably move him around a little bit too, but we need to get him settled in a spot eventually. I think he’s competed really well with the bunch of really good veteran wide outs we have.–

I just read Seth’s Chief in the North piece “Real or Fantasy” – great work by him as always, and a sharp rundown of some key camp storylines.
One guy he mentions is #55, Frank Clark. The thought occurs to me that if he successfully holds the edge on runs and rpo’s consistently I’ll take that. If he contributes to the pass rush, either as a decoy or with sacks, it’ll feel like gravy (should be the sizzle) because our expectations have lessened here. As a piece of the final 53 I’m happy he’s there.
Guys he didn’t mention were Saunders, Wharton and Stalworth (and Danna too, but this is about the DT group). How well will they hold the line, along with CJ? The way I see it, if they achieve a stalemate at the line of scrimmage then the playmakers in the LB & DB groups (which is where the Chiefs D strengths lie imho) can take care of business. If they get pushback and say a dozen sacks as a group (not including #95) I don’t know if this is a reasonable expectation but it’d be nice.
RT Andrew Wylie also didn’t get mentioned but it’s starting to look like he’s the man on the right side of the line and I’m just fine with that. His performance has improved each season, he is resilient in the face of injury, I remember him battling Max Crosby last year and he held his own, so I say cheers for him as well as for the entire OL group because it’s going to be fun watching those guys work.

What ever happened to Niang? I remember people saying he and brown were going to be our bookend tackles for the next few years. I guess not so much.

Niang is injured or should I say recovering from injury. Due back around the first game of the season but Reid doesn’t like to shake up personnel once it’s set. So, I don’t see Niang breaking into the starting line up when he returns

If you remember last year, Niang was playing left tackle when he got injured. OBjr. was injured so they sent in Niang to replace him. He was in for 3 plays then got injured.

So I see his role as a swing tackle back up, our depth at tackle
