WR’s – (6) – Jeremy Maclin, Chris Conley, Rod Streater, Tyreek Hill, Demarcus Robinson, Albert Wilson
The top two are set in my mind. Past that I’m not sure what the order may be. Streater provides a big body and a veteran presence to push Conley. Hill looks promising as a returner but has a lot to learn as a wide receiver. Robinson has continually flashed as a gunner on special teams and should make it based on that alone.
He is a very talented wide receiver that needs time to develop at the position. I’ve been very critical of Wilson but him not playing last night shows he is probably safe. I wouldn’t hate it if he was on the outside looking in and they decided to keep De’Anthony Thomas. The biggest question to me with Wilson is where does he contribute if he isn’t a starting WR. Slot WR isn’t enough of a starter to not play special teams.
TE’s – (3) – Travis Kelce, Demetrius Harris, Ross Travis
One and two are again not a surprise at TE. Ross Travis to me looks like the third TE at this point. Very raw player but his 40 time is actually faster than Kelce’s and at 6-foot-7 he provides a big target at the TE position. If he can improve on his blocking it will really help the Chiefs that love to run a 3 TE set.
OL – (7) – Eric Fisher, Parker Ehinger, Mitch Morse, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Mitchell Schwartz, Zach Fulton, Jah Reid
This has seemed pretty set from the start of OTA’s even. The Chiefs could look to add a veteran swing tackle but they will also probably have at least two more lineman on the practice squad. The depth of the roster keeps them from keeping eight right now.
