#31 Tayon Fleet-Davis
Years Pro: Rookie
Chance of Making the Roster: Low
Long-time Maryland running back Tayon Fleet-Davis finds himself in an opportunity to make the Chiefs roster. That opportunity seems relatively small, however, as he has a lot of competition. Fleet-Davis is a strong runner but lacks the same athleticism that his peers in Kansas City have.
His chances of making the roster are slim, but certainly not impossible. Fleet-Davis did have an impressive 2021 campaign with 1,026 all-purpose yards and 9 touchdowns. If he can show that he can compete with the other talented backs on the roster, there is a chance he sticks around.
#45 Michael Burton
Years Pro: 8 (30 years old)
Chance of Making the Roster: Near Lock
Andy Reid is innovative and loves to change things from time to time. He is not, however, willing to have an offense that does not have an available fullback. Michael Burton is the guy unless there is a change in his philosophy. Burton had a good season in 2021 and could see a larger role in the offense this season if the Chiefs use the rushing attack to combat the two-high safety look that teams used against the Kansas City offense last season. Burton has almost assured a spot on the roster as a lead blocker and core special teams player.
