5.) Isiah Pacheco - Kansas City Chiefs

When the Chiefs drafted Clyde Edwards-Helaire in 2020, he was featured as the main ball carrier for the Chiefs future and would be paired with a pass attack led by Patrick Mahomes. With inconsistency and injuries, the Chiefs decided to draft Isiah Pacheco in the seventh round in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Pacheco first broke out in the NFL in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs with a 62 rushing yard performance as well as a touchdown. As the season progressed, he saw more and more playing time before eventually taking over the main running back responsibilities. He ended the regular season with 830 rushing yards and five touchdowns. In the playoffs, he managed to put up 197 yards on the ground and get into the endzone in the super bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Pacheco is a bull runner who exceeded expectations when he was drafted and is now viewed as a young, upcoming running back in the league. Going into his second season with the Chiefs, Pacheco is expected to pick up where he left off in 2022 and should definitely see a good amount of carries against the Bills.
