Analysis: Upgrading the defense has been a priority for the Chiefs this offseason. Adding arguably the best linebacker in the draft to a defense which already added a couple established veterans immediately improves this unit. In Johnson, the Chiefs secured the services of a talented linebacker who plays better in space and has the speed and quickness to run sideline to sideline. With experience, Johnson should improve his ability when engaged by an offensive lineman.
The Chiefs were looking for a big leg to add the dimension of positive field-position to this Kansas City team and Dustin Colquitt should amply supply this.
