Here is this week's edition of the Kansas City Chiefs mailbag. To ask a question for a future edition, send it to me via Twitter (@adamteicher) and tag it #ChiefsMail.
@adamteicher: The bar was set low last year. A guy they pulled off waivers at the start of the season, cornerback Marcus Cooper, was their rookie of the year. Among the draft picks, only tackle Eric Fisher and running back Knile Davis played a significant amount. So a big year from Dee Ford would by itself maybe give the Chiefs as much production as they received from their entire rookie class last year. But that's what it might take because other than possibly running back/wide receiver De'Anthony Thomas and Fulton, I don't see the Chiefs getting much from any of their other draft picks this year. Cornerback Phillip Gaines, quarterback Aaron Murray and Duvernay-Tardif look like projects to me.
@adamteicher Adam, do you expect the Chiefs to get more out of their 2014 rookie class in year one than they did the 2013 class?— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) June 18, 2014
