He's doing the exact same thing he's BEEN doing since he got to KC. We've talked about what TJ is to the Chiefs before. If he were taken where he SHOULD HAVE been taken (2nd rd), he'd be exceeding expectations. He's a good NFL player. Pioli knew he was going to switch the Chiefs defense over to a 3-4. The Chiefs didn't have a prototypical 3-4 DE to put on the line. But the key to a good/great 3-4 defense is the NT... as we're seeing this year. B.J. Raji was there at #3 and should've been the pick even excluding hindsight. The NT is too important to a 3-4 to pass on and Pioli did it for 3 drafts in a row. Unacceptable.
Go back and look at that 2009 first round. Hindsight being 20/20, there's only a handful of guys I'd rather have than Tyson Jackson out of that first round. The guy is a real asset for this Chiefs team.
