The Kansas City Chiefs have the personnel to put together a top-notch NFL defense.
Even better for the Chiefs, many of the players have experience at key positions.
Of the 11 projected starters, eight have spent multiple seasons with the Chiefs.
The players won't shy away from the expectations of being part of a defense prepared to carry Kansas City back to the postseason.
"We have confidence," Chiefs defensive end Glenn Dorsey said. "We have a lot of guys coming back, a lot of guys got healthy. We want to build on what we did last year. We feel like we had the right guys in the right places."
