Kansas City Chiefs: Undrafted free agents and their roster chances
By Grant Tuttle
Robert McCray, LB, Indiana
I like the idea of McCray. Because I could not find a lot of film, I went with what the consensus was from analysts. From what I found, he is a strong and athletic dude with a great attitude. Unfortunately I can’t tell you much more than that.
Chance of making the roster: Poor
McCray would have to be pretty darn good to win a spot as an outside linebacker with the Chiefs. The Chiefs invested a lot of young talent there, so I can’t imagine McCray being good enough to take a spot from those guys.
Arrion Springs, DB, Oregon
Springs is an interesting player. I had not considered him to be a necessarily “strong” candidate to make the roster this next season. However, I looked at a little bit of film and I liked what I saw. He is a pretty good press corner, which the Chiefs have been looking for. He also has the ability to recover if he makes a wrong step. I truly like his ability and his range.
Springs also shows some ability in his ability to come off of the edge as a pass rushing defensive back. I think that he gets caught guessing from time to time and he is not necessarily athletically gifted, as far as cornerbacks go.
Chance of making the roster: Fair
The Chiefs coaching staff has gushed about his ability to take things in like a sponge. Being a great learner can give any defensive back a leg up on the competition. He will be competing with Tremon Smith, Keith Reaser and Will Redmond, but the reserve spots at cornerback are wide open. While there are a number of players on the roster playing defensive back, I think Springs has as much of a chance to make the roster as anyone else.
