Predicting the Chiefs Depth Chart: Defense Edition

It's never too early to start trying to piece together the rotations or speculating on what the starters could look like.  As of today, this is how the defense should look to start the season.  One thing you may notice is how much more depth the Chiefs have compared to most seasons.  Aside from Hali, you don't feel like you are in too big of trouble if you lose any one guy.  The only realistic position battle that could alter the depth chart for week one is Jovan Belcher vs Brandon Siler for the strong side inside linebacker position.  The guys in red are in good shape with either one, but you have two very physical players battling for a starting spot, which should be fun.
