One position to watch throughout the season for the Chiefs is the third CB spot, where rookie Jalil Brown, second-year man Javier Arenas and veteran Travis Daniels all have made their claims for the position. Brown, the team's fourth-round draft choice, has good size and aggressiveness. Arenas, a second-round pick last spring, is exceptionally fast and showed some promise as a rookie. Daniels, entering his seventh NFL season, has made 28 starts throughout his career and has the greatest knowledge of opposing offenses. We hear that Arenas is the nickel back for now, mainly due to his speed and playmaking ability. However, were one of the team's starting corners — Brandon Flowers or Brandon Carr — to get hurt, it would be Brown who enters the starting lineup. The rookie is seen as a better fit for the outside, due to his physical nature, which allows him to jam receivers at the line, whereas Arenas works best out of the slot. Daniels has played well during the preseason and will likely wind up as the team's fifth corner while also playing on special teams.
