The Kansas City Chiefs won their first Super Bowl since 1969 over two months ago and they’ve gotten even better on offense. With the No. 32 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Chiefs selected Clyde Edwards-Helaire, running back out of LSU.
There’s no doubt that Kansas City has one of the best offensive units in the entire NFL, if not the best. However, for them to reach that next level on offense, they could use a running back that’s capable of being a workhorse in their backfield.
While Joe Burrow put together a historic season from under center at LSU this past season, Edwards-Helaire was making a name for himself in the backfield.

To give them an even more lethal offense moving forward, Kansas City added Edwards-Helaire to close out the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Following his selection, here are three early predictions for Edwards-Helaire in his rookie season with the Chiefs.
