The Kansas City Chiefs announced they’ve agreed on contractual terms with five of their seven draft picks in 2023.
The rookie class of 2023 is almost all under contract for the Kansas City Chiefs, a fairly quick set of signings after making seven total selections just a couple of weeks ago in the 2023 NFL Draft. On Tuesday, the Chiefs announced they’d reached an agreement on rookie deals for their final five picks from rounds three through seven.
The five picks who were officially signed to their first pro contracts were third-round offensive tackle Wanya Morris out of Oklahoma, fourth-round defensive back Chamarri Conner out of Virginia Tech, fifth-round pass rusher B.J. Thompson out of Stephen F. Austin, sixth-round defensive lineman Keondre Coburn out of Texas, and seventh-round defensive back Nic Jones out of Ball State.
The signings leave only first-round pass rusher Felix Anudike-Uzomah out of Kansas State and second-round wide receiver Rashee Rice out of SMU as the lone unsigned picks. Lest anyone be concerned, however, all rookie deals are slotted and come with very little drama about whether or not they will sign in time for training camp.
The Chiefs came into draft weekend with 10 selections at their disposal and ultimately used them on seven players after trading up in rounds two, three, and four.
