Philip Gaines is a stud

In 2015, Phillip Gaines was the No. 3 cornerback and was off to a hot start. He looked excellent in training camp and in preseason and looked equally as good in the Chiefs’ first two games.

Unfortunately, Gaines tore his ACL in Week 3 against the Packers and missed the remainder of the season. In 2016, he got his job back and got off to a decent start but quickly got banged up again. After missing a couple of games due to injury, Gaines’ playing time was sporadic, as was his quality of play.

Gaines got absolutely torched by Denver in Week 12, giving up over 200 yards. He was inactive off and on again following that game and now will enter training camp unsure if he will even make the team.

We have seen Gaines both play at a high level and look completely lost. He certainly has the measurables with impressive arm length and sub-4.4 speed. Like Maclin, one of the biggest keys for Gaines is just to stay healthy.

Gaines may have the widest range of scenarios on the team. He could play well enough to be a starter or could play poorly enough to get cut out of camp.

he had a HOF-type impact his rookie year...

But I'll settle for Antonio Brown type impact Wink

Either way he's getting featured in the offense heavier this year which should make Marquette King happy. Dave Amerson not so much.


Also: Gaines isn't great, he lost confidence and been dealing with injuries. He plays up to his potential and he's our best cover corner. Big if though.

The #Chargers signed pass-rusher Melvin Ingram to a 4-year, $66M deal, source said. Their franchise player. $42M in guarantees

I like this. He's a Packers guy, you see a lot of similarities to Reggie in their drafts. Hire him up Reg. Laughing

Excellent topic and great posts Oakdb36, I can't say I disagree with any of your rankings or reasonings but maybe the potential of the Safeties in Oakland make them the #2........but that's projection of course and not past performance.

It's pretty clear how closely the teams are matched for most positions like RB, WR, pass rushers, CBs and safteies. I still think the Chiefs by default are probably the team to beat until proven otherwise but we're right on their tails and may in fact overtake them this year, especially as we have a number of influential 2nd and 3rd year players who may very well show large improvements.
