The Chiefs knew they were drafting a starting safety when they took Eric Berry in the first round in April, but they didn't realize they were likely drafting another one in Round Five in Kendrick Lewis. With restricted free agent Jarrad Page still unsigned and missing the entire offseason program, Lewis frequently has been running with Berry on the first team, doing some positive things in OTAs, such as returning an interception for a touchdown. From what we hear, the rookie from Ole Miss has the inside track on one of the starting jobs, especially with the disgruntled Page being a possible trade candidate. The first player from the team's 2010 draft class to sign, Lewis is a smart, aggressive player who isn't afraid to take charge. Although the pairing of he and Berry will leave the Chiefs very inexperienced in the defensive backfield, it should be an improvement over last year's veteran duo of Mike Brown and Jon McGraw, which struggled to prevent big plays.
