Another top-notch draft is in the books for the Kansas City Chiefs. After a stellar draft according to multiple draft graders and enthusiasts, the conversation will now shift to "Who is keeping a job?" Today, we investigate which Kansas City Chiefs may be on the hot seat, or a possible cut candidate.

With some key, long-term additions to the roster in Xavier Worthy, Kingsley Suamataia, and Jared Wiley among others, who could be sent packing during cut down time, or even before training camp?

We take a look at the four players that could be looking for a new home after the dust settles from undrafted free agents and the draft.

1. Skyy Moore, Wide Receiver

This one is the most obvious. The receiving room was pitiful last season and a big reason for that was the disappointment left behind by Skyy Moore and Kadarius Toney. To be completely fair to them, they had definite injury concerns that held them out of several contests down the stretch.

With that taken into account, Moore was expected to take a leap and be a key contributor in a year where he would get a lot of opportunities. In his eight starts and 14 games total, he hauled in just 21 receptions for 244 yards. There are reasons to keep Moore, one being that he is on his rookie deal and the team would benefit very little from his departure, outside of adding a roster spot for someone else.

Moore, entering his third year has a lot to prove as new players begin to compete for roster spots.
