Chiefs' Draft 2013: Looking Ahead To The Undrafted Free Agents

 

The Kansas City Chiefs have completed their draft and the rest of the league is wrapping things up as well. The next step in this process is the Undrafted Free Agent frenzy. This is the time teams may contact any prospect not previously drafted by another team and start to truly build their training camp roster.

Earlier today, Chiefs’ head coach, Andy Reid, had this to say about college free agents. The second greatest number of starters in the National Football League besides first round picks are the college free agents you sign. They’re all over the place and you just don’t realize it. Those are some good football player. Only 50 percent of your first round picks even start and then you drop down to 22 percent for the second round. And you’re right at about 22.5, 23 percent of college free agents that start. ”

It would seem the draft battle is only half over. The Chiefs’ War Room still has plenty of work to do.

Consider this the opening post for the UFA season. Look for the Chiefs to be quite active in this period as they work to bring in more talent to provide competition, depth and perhaps that one diamond in the rough that all teams hope they can find in this period of the process.

Use this post as an open thread and discuss the draft and what players you hope to see brought on for the rest of this weekend as we here at Arrowhead Addict continue to bring you updates to signings as soon as we have them. This should get interesting.

Until next time, Addicts.

    • Lyle Graversen

      He already has Miz’s Brad Madison (DE) going to KC.

  • jesse

    Kevin Reddick. i dont think he was picked though he was discussed as a 2-3 round lb

  • Lyle Graversen

    I REALLY would love to see Arizona QB Matt Scott in KC as our #3.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Dang reportedly headed to Jax.

      • t_tyrance

        Damn I wanted them to get him to but I bet if they give him a chance in jax he will be starting in the next yr or so

      Knott is now being listed as with Philly not KC, bummer.

    • TigerNatl

      Rico Richardson from Jackson State was SWAC player of the year. Had over 1,000 yards receiving this past season. Also broke the schools record in receiving yards in a season. Ran a 4.3 at pro day. Similar to the speedy small receivers Andy Reid coached while with the eagles. Very good high potential UDFA.
