3. Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have an interesting situation with their edge rushers this season. All signs were pointing to Chris Jones moving to defensive end for the Chiefs but it is up in the air if he even plays as he could serve time in prison for a felony gun charge.

If Jones played the Chiefs would have a decent 1-2 of him and Frank Clark, assuming that Jones was actually going to play on the outside. However, because is up in the air, as well as his actual role on the defensive line, it is impossible to rank the Chiefs higher than third.

Plus, the teams above them are simply better.

There is a route in which the Chiefs have the worst edge-rushing duo in the league when we revisit these rankings at the end of the season. Clark is good but he is by no means elite and if he regresses, and Jones does not play, then it might not be that inspiring of a duo.

The position is not a concern for the Chiefs, but it is not as strong as the top-two teams in the AFC. There are a lot of good edge rushers in the division and the Chiefs get lost in the shuffle a bit.
