ESPN Projected Roster

http://espn.go.com/blog/kansas-city-...ojected-roster


Examining the Kansas City Chiefs' roster:

QUARTERBACKS (3)
Alex Smith
Chase Daniel
Tyler Bray

The Chiefs could go a lot of different directions here. The only certainty is a healthy Smith will start. Daniel, the veteran backup, could be traded if the Chiefs determine that either Bray or their other developmental prospect, Aaron Murray, is ready to be the No. 2. Thatís unlikely, so the Chiefs need to determine what to do with Murray. They didnít draft him to release him, so he could go on the injured reserve list. The Chiefs could also keep four quarterbacks.

RUNNING BACKS (4)
Jamaal Charles
Anthony Sherman
Knile Davis
De'Anthony Thomas

Thereís room for another player here if the Chiefs believe they need to keep two running backs in addition to Charles and Sherman, the fullback. They needed three in last yearís playoff game in Indianapolis. Thomas is listed as a back and might get some work as one, but heís too small to be an every-down player if thatís what the Chiefs require. So Cyrus Gray, a useful special-teams player, or Joe McKnight could also stick.

WIDE RECEIVER (5)
Dwayne Bowe
Donnie Avery
Junior Hemingway
A.J. Jenkins
Frankie Hammond Jr.

Other receivers will have ample opportunity to make the team because the Chiefs have a need. But they wonít keep another receiver without that player earning the spot.

TIGHT END (3)
Anthony Fasano
Travis Kelce
Demetrius Harris

Kelceís troublesome knee could impact the roster decisions here. If his knee remains balky, the Chiefs could keep Sean McGrath.

OFFENSIVE LINE (10)
Eric Fisher
Donald Stephenson
Jeff Allen
Rishaw Johnson
Rodney Hudson
Jeff Linkenbach
Zach Fulton
Eric Kush
Rokevious Watkins
Laurent Duvernay-Tardif

The Chiefs will, pardon the pun, go heavy here. Andy Reid likes to stash some developmental linemen.

DEFENSIVE LINE (6)
Dontari Poe
Mike DeVito
Allen Bailey
Vance Walker
Mike Catapano
Jaye Howard

Thereís no need to keep more, not with Poe playing so many snaps and the Chiefs occasionally using only two linemen, and sometimes one.

LINEBACKER (10)
Justin Houston
Tamba Hali
Derrick Johnson
Joe Mays
Dee Ford
Nico Johnson
Frank Zombo
Josh Martin
Dezman Moses
James-Michael Johnson

This assumes Houston returns to the Chiefs in time for the start of the regular season. If not, the Chiefs will need another body.

CORNERBACK (5)
Sean Smith
Marcus Cooper
Chris Owens
Phillip Gaines
Ron Parker

A position of importance is an area of concern. Only Smith, a starter, and Owens, a nickelback, are proven.

SAFETY (4)
Eric Berry
Husain Abdullah
Sanders Commings
Daniel Sorensen

Abdullah has more experience at free safety, but the Chiefs might be better served by going with the bigger Commings as their starter.

SPECIALISTS (3)
Ryan Succop
Dustin Colquitt
Thomas Gafford
Cairo Santos has an impressive leg, but itís difficult seeing the Chiefs going with a rookie kicker instead of the veteran Succop.

There has to be a reason he was available. If he's really done well I feel like he wouldn't have been so easy for us to get. Here to hope, I guess

There are a lot of things I disagree about with this roster prediction, but I actually don't mind it. There are some surprises, but for a network that values quantity over quality, it's good to see surprises. Shows that the person writing this knows a little bit about this roster.

For instance, if this were some jabber on NFL Network, nobody on that staff would know who the hell Frankie Hammond Jr or Daniel Sorensen is.

He was a free agent. His contract ran out. That's why he was available.

It looks like I'm championing this guy as the next Terrence Copper, and I can assure you that I'm not. I'm just saying that he has real game time experience and has done well in that time. Every roster needs guys like Chris Owens.
