After entering the draft with eight picks, the Kansas City Chiefs came away with six draft selections in a defensive heavy draft this weekend.
It was evident that the Kansas City Chiefs had a lot more holes on defense than offense that needed to be addressed. For those who were hoping that the Chiefs would have a defensive heavy draft, you got exactly what you hoped for.
All six of Kansas City’s draft picks were defensive players, with one expected to convert to an offensive lineman.
Given the fact that the Chiefs did not have a first-round pick, they are not expected to have a rookie start in Week 1. However, a lot of their draft picks are expected to compete for key backup roles, providing depth in certain areas.
This means that there are a few Chiefs players who are likely to be involved in key position battles and will need to step up during OTAs, training camp and in preseason games.
Here are five Chiefs players who are on the roster bubble following the 2018 NFL draft. As always, let us know your thoughts on this list and if you agree or if you think someone else should have been on this list.
