Chiefs Roster Cuts: Predicting The Right 53

The Kansas City Chiefs will be making their roster cuts any time now (hopefully not before I finish this post) so I thought it would be fun to enter a prediction on who will make the team and who will end up on the practice squad.

Here we go:

This was HARD. I really wanted to try to get Eachus on the roster but I couldn’t find a way to work it. It came down to cutting Eachus, Maneri or Bellamy. I was hesitant to cut Bellamy, especially since the last depth chart had him in front of Wylie. I figure there is no way they cut Wylie so Bellamy should survive. Manaeri showed great promise at TE so I think the Chiefs will carry three at that position. That left the deep RB group. With Charles and Hillis, there just won’t be carries for a guy like Eachus as much as I bet they like him. They used a pick on Gray and Draughn has looked very good. Just a tough call.

If it wasn’t for the injuries in the secondary, I could have seen them cutting Jacques Reeves. Then again, he looked better than Jalil Brown at times.

I think the Chiefs will try to stash Eachus on the practice squad.

Practice Squad:

RB Nate Eachus

WR Jamar Newsome

WR Junior Hemingway

LB Gabe Miller

DE Jerome Long

OT David Mims

G Darryl Harris*

DE Brandon Bair

 *I changed this from Tanney to Harris after posting.

There is my best guess. What are your predictions? Get them in quick.
