Can we use KC as a model to turn this around?

I read an article in ESPN the mag this off season about how the Chiefs used most of their draft picks on players who were captains for their college teams. Now I know a college captain is not ALWAYS a high character guy, but they are usually guys who care about winning and playing the right way. My thought is that the best way to change a culture of losing is to get a bunch of young guys together whom winning is important too.

Now obviously KC is benefiting from having some very good playmakers in guys like Charles and Bowe but I think this might at least be something worth considering with our draft picks this year.

Also if something like this post already exists then I am sorry, I am still newish to this form and wasnt able to find anything!

I would think the best players on college teams are often captains anyway, so I'm not sure it matters much that they drafted team captains.
