»Jeremy Maclin will provide Alex Smith with a receiver who can create separation, something Chiefs receivers couldn't seem to do in 2014. We expect Albert Wilson -- who displayed speed and promise in a good December run -- to be the No. 2 guy. Jason Avant is barely a No. 3 wideout at this stage and De'Anthony Thomas is a gadget player.
» We are assuming Mike DeVito and Derrick Johnson will return healthy from Achilles ruptures and Justin Houston will eventually sign his franchise tag tender (or get a long-term deal). Jaye Howard performed well in stretches last season but wasn't consistent enough to knock DeVito out if he returns healthy.
» With Eric Berry still battling cancer (get well, sir), the Chiefs will enter with Ron Parker as the strong safety. Parker's play vacillated from great to poor last season in 1,037 snaps, but KC loves his upside. We should also note that there is a chance Sean Smith could face a suspension due to a DUI arrest last summer.
