Over the final few weeks of the season, the Chiefs have been looking for some of their young players to emerge, laying the groundwork for the 2012 campaign. Rookie DE Allen Bailey, a third-round pick this past April, is one of those players. After being a nonfactor for much of the season, Bailey has come on of late, recording his first career sack in Week 15, a punishing takedown of the Packers' Aaron Rodgers in the fourth quarter of Kansas City's upset win. Head coach Romeo Crennel is pleased with the rookie's progress, saying, "I think that that learning curve is getting shorter for him now because he's showing up in the game doing more things the right way, the correct way and I think that he will continue to improve." Given the uncertainty on the team's defensive line beyond this season, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Bailey competing for a starting job next summer.
