QB Terrelle Pryor: 6-4, 233, Ohio State

G Jarrod Pughsley: 6-4, 310, Akron

FB Spencer Ware: 5-10, 229, LSU

WR Fred Williams: 6-0, 190, St. Cloud State

DT Jerel Worthy: 6-2, 308, Michigan State

A whole bunch of interesting guys on this list, several who have a serious shot at making the team.

First you have the Green Bay duo of Derek Sherrod (former first round pick) and Jerel Worthy (second round pick). Sherrod was released from the Packers in November as the team lost room for him on the roster. Sherrod broke his leg his rookie season while trying to make a block on Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali. It took him a year an a half to recover. By the time he was ready to play the Packers had already found his replacement.

Worthy is a second round pick who had his own injury problems. In his rookie season he totaled three sacks in 467 snaps. He played only 12 snaps in his second year due to injury. Worthy spent some time on the Chiefs’ practice squad this past season.

Da’Rick Rogers is another very intriguing guy for the Chiefs. Rogers was an undrafted free agent signing by the Bills but did not make the team. Indianapolis picked him up a few days later and reaped the benefits in December as he caught six passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns against the Cincinnati Bengals. In the Colts-Chiefs playoff game that season he caught one pass for 46 yards.

In September Rogers was released by the Colts after being arrest for driving under the influence.

At 6-3 Rogers possesses some tools the Chiefs may find useful on the outside. He’s still young and unproven but he’s at least shown a flash at the NFL level. One would think Rogers could compete well in camp for the roster spot presently owned by A.J. Jenkins.

Armon Binns had some promise as an outside receiver until he tore both his ACL and MCL during training camp with the Miami Dolphins in 2013. He was released by the team in August of this year. The extra time to recover from his injury may put him in a position be more productive during the workouts and training camp with the Chiefs. He, like everyone else on this list, is a lottery ticket but the upside could mean more production for the Chiefs on the outside.

Oh, and there is that Pryor guy.
