The Chiefs' Safety roster after the upcoming 2021 season includes: Juan Thornhill. Period. He is the only one contracted past the end of next season. No Dan Sorensen, Amani Watts, nor -- this is so hard to swallow -- Tyrann Mathieu. The three-time First Team All-Pro Safety is also entering the final year of his contract. In a since-deleted tweet responding to a question about a potential contract extension, Tyrann Mathieu said he's "probably not" going to get a new deal in KC.

This would be such a huge loss in leadership for the Chiefs' defense. I struggle with the concept. He is, by far, the best free-agent signing that Brett Veach has made since becoming GM of the organization. Since signing with the Chiefs two years ago, the Honey Badger has served as the voice of the defense and has tallied 10 INTs, 21 passes defensed, and 2.0 sacks. Mathieu is hungry. He promises to lead the team back to the Super Bowl; and, to take the trophy back. ... Yet, the business of football must move forward.

A trend of declining value may work in our favor. The last time NFL draftniks witnessed a Safety taken in RD1 was 2019, when Darnell Savage went to the Packers at Pick #23. ... Meanwhile, two names to keep an eye on at the Chiefs' pre-season camp are UDFA signings Devon Key and Zayne Anderson, a.k.a. Dirty Daniel Sorensen's Mini-Me. These two hopefuls look to join Thornhill on the Safety roster.

CHIEFS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
