The Kansas City Chiefs drafted six total players in the 2020 NFL Draft class, but they’ll add several more rookies thereafter as undrafted free agents.
The book is closed on the 2020 NFL Draft, but that doesn’t mean that prospects hoping to hear their name called are without options. Given that every NFL team will likely carry a few undrafted free agents onto their active rosters this fall, it’s a frenzy after the draft to try to secure several players to bring to training camp in the hopes of unearthing the next great find.
Here’s a list of the players who have agreed to join the Chiefs as undrafted free agent.
Turned in a 4.38 second time in the 40-yard dash. Had 29 catches for 314 yards and 4 touchdowns from Jacob Easom in ’19.
Bailey had 57 total tackles in 2019 to go with 1 interception and 9 passes defended for the Mountaineers.
A slower than expected 40-yard time at the Combine hurt this hard-hitting safety’s stock, but the Chiefs might be able to take advantage here. A better bet to make the team than others.
Cobb earned solid marks in coverage from Pro Football Focus last year with Marshall. Cobb has 114 tackles, 8 quarterback hurries, and 2 sacks last year.
Davis was projected as a likelier draft pick than others on this list, so the Chiefs did well to bring him in as an undrafted free agent. There are obvious size limitations here given that Davis is only 5’8″, but he’s a tough competitor at corner who could grow into a slot corner role.
It’s not much of a surprise to see a Missouri product on this list. Durant comes with starting experience at left tackle in the SEC, which is a huge plus, but there are athleticism concerns here.
A 6’2, 315 lb. lineman who participated in this year’s NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Long-term starter at left guard (next to heralded prospect Matt Hennessy).
No that’s not a typo. It’s really Ffrench. Caught a whopping 96 passes (school record) in 2019 though only for 850 yards and 4 touchdowns. Has experience as kick returner as well.
It can’t hurt to be a BYU product on this roster (Andy Reid‘s alma mater), but Hifo is also helped by his ability to run the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds at a recent “pro day.” Has punt return experience and should be a solid special teams player.
Hill joins his college teammate, edge rusher Michael Danna, as part of the Chiefs rookie haul here. Hill was first team All-Big Ten the last two years and is one of the likelier candidates to make the team from this group.
Promising wideout who suffered from catching passes from four different quarterbacks for the Commodores last year. Fell from 9 touchdowns to 3 in 2019 and his yardage did the same. Very real potential here to make the leap.
Lipscomb’s teammate will also try to show what he can do with a real quarterback throwing the ball. The 5’10 receiver had only 97 receiving yards in 2019 on 14 catches.
If this name seems familiar to you, it’s because he’s been on the roster before. Soroh is a safety who played in the XFL and is back for another chance to impress the coaching staff.
Townsend has been punting in the SEC for a bit and now adds further competition to the mix with Dustin Colquitt and Tyler Newsome.
The small-school prospect held his own during practices for the East-West Shrine Game. Last season, Wharton had 11.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. Had 35.5 career sacks despite being double teamed most games.
Has size and ball skills to make some noise and he comes from good stock (father was cornerback in NFL).
Williams played at left guard and center at Mississippi State, which pitted him against the best that college football had to offer. Started every game at center last year. Ceiling seems to be as a versatile role player along the offensive interior, but the Chiefs paid pretty heavily ($107K bonus) to bring him in, so maybe they see something more.
Wright was named First-Team All-American Athletic Conference after a year with 100 tackles, 13.5 tackles of them for a loss, 7 quarterback hurries, 3.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.
