RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Poe finished 2014 with 45 tackles (37 solo) and six sacks for the Chiefs. The former first-round pick remains the anchor in the middle of the Chiefs defensive line, and will serve in that role again in 2015.
The 2012 first-rounder pick is considered to be the anchor of the Chiefs' defensive line. Poe recorded 51 tackles and 4.5 sacks while eating up blockers in 2013. He should continue to put up solid numbers in his third professional season, but his IDP ceiling will be limited while working as the nose tackle in the Chiefs' 3-4 scheme.
Poe, the Chiefs' first-round selection in 2012, will start at nose tackle in the team's base 3-4 defense. He came on strong late in his rookie season and with tremendous size and athleticism Poe is the best bet to become a disruptive force along the Kansas City defensive line.
Poe, the Chiefs' first-round pick, will compete for the starting nose tackle position with Anthony Toribio and Jerrell Powe. While he is raw from a technique standpoint, he has all the physical tools to earn the playing time and make an impact. Nevertheless, 3-4 nose tackles typically do not produce enough tackles or sacks to be an effective IDP.
