Kansas City Chiefs GM Brett Veach did a fantastic job in the 2021 NFL draft despite the fact that the team didn’t make a first-round draft selection.
If the success that players have found on the field in a Super Bowl victory isn’t proof enough, NFL Media’s latest All-Under-25 team should do the trick.
A trio of 2021 draft picks was recognized in a team comprised of the best players in the NFL under the age of 25.
Surrounding Patrick Mahomes with a plethora of young talent has always been the goal in Kansas City, helping them to extend their championship window.
They seem to have accomplished it in two of their offensive linemen and one of the team leaders on the defensive side of the ball.
Here’s a quick look at each player that made the list and some quips below: 1) C Creed Humphrey 2) RG Trey Smith 3) LB Nick Bolton
1) C Creed Humphrey Humphrey is no stranger to the “Under 25” recognition. He landed on PFF’s 25 under 25 list, earlier this offseason.
It’s not just about stamping his first Pro Bowl season and Super Bowl ring in 2023.
He was flat-out dominant as a pass protector with no sacks allowed and 18 total pressures on the year.
