Drake is certainly better running the ball than Damien Williams, but Damien is much better in the passing game, which is why he's such a great fit for the Chiefs. Drake is certainly explosive, consistency and inside running have always been the concerns with him. I don't know if 31 is too low, but you could certainly argue he shouldn't be a starting RB.The concerns are fair however, he is a damn good player who can take it to the house and has - from anywhere on the field. Loved Gore but at his advances age he couldn’t do that anymore during his time here.
I saw a reference to D Williams. He’s not good. Don’t let what the Chiefs did w him fool you. Had KC had Drake on the roster after cutting Hunt they would have won the SB. After they dumped him they were not the same team - mainly because you didn’t have to respect Damien the same way you did Hunt. Drake forces you to respect the big play.
I do not like the idea of Drake being an every down back but I don’t think he was used enough last year vs Gore. They didn’t seem to get the balance right.
