KANSAS CITY – The Kansas City Chiefs continue to make headlines with their roster, alone. Usually, at this time of the year, Patrick Mahomes is making headlines as a top-3 player in the NFL on a list the NFL comes out with. However, with the way the media was this past season, Mahomes may not crack the top-15.
Anyways, that is neither here, nor there. However, the Chiefs have a player on a Pro Football Focus list, that you may not expect. Oftentimes, pages like PFF will do their top players list at a certain position, or in this case, under a certain age.
Chiefs offensive lineman Creed Humphrey makes notable PFF list
Pro Football Focus recently made a list of the top-25 players under the age of 25, and Creed Humphrey slotted in at No. 16.
To start, Nick Bosa, the 49ers defensive end, understandably came in as the first player on this list. Chiefs fans are very familiar with him from 2019 when the two faced off in the Super Bowl. Then, the rest of the top-10 is as follows:
- Nick Bosa, San Francisco 49ers
- Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers
- Johnathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts
- Tristan Wirfs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings
- Micah Parsons, Dallas Cowboys
- Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals
- Jefferey Simmons, Tennessee Titans
- A.J. Terrell, Atlanta Falcons
- D.K. Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks.
Then, at 16, is the Chiefs’ very own Creed Humphrey. The second-year player is the only center on this whole list. Humphrey is also one of only three offensive linemen. The two others are both ahead of him, and rightfully so, in Tristan Wirfs at No. 4 and Rashawn Slater, who comes in at No. 14.
Creed Humphrey is a non-skill position player on a list where those positions dominate. The guys ahead of him definitely are more contributing to their team, but you could make an argument no one is more important, or had a bigger season than the rookie from last season in Creed Humphrey.
