It's not a bad ranking at all for the preseason. Of course it could very well change next year.
Really hate agreeing with a KC fan but I have to say he's right on this one. Van had a stellar rookie year and shows immense potential and upside but if you're ranking the here and now you have to plump for the proven player.
There are plenty of other things to hate about the article though. Does seem like a classic Burger Bill "phoned in from the couch" piece....
Thing is, I find it hard to take Hali seriously due to Bob repeatedly promising he's going to absolutley destroy us, only for that to not actually happen on Sunday....
