Let's take an early look at what the active roster could resemble before competition shakes things too much.

Chiefs Final 53-man Roster: Linebacker (5)

On the Team:

  • Nick Bolton
  • Willie Gay Jr.
  • Drue Tranquill
  • Leo Chenal

Official Camp Battle For One Spot:

  • Jack Cochrane vs Cam Jones

Missing the Cut:

  • Isaiah Moore
  • Cole Christiansen

The top four linebackers will play almost all of the actual linebacker snaps if everyone is healthy. I think the final spot is for a special teams guy. Last season that was Jack Cochrane, but I really like the potential of undrafted rookie Cam Jones as well. That is a roster battle to watch in camp, not only who looks better playing linebacker, but who is getting more reps and standing out on special teams.
