Top Chiefs stories

  • With those new signings plus other free agent pickups like edge rusher Charles Omenihu and left tackle Jawaan Taylor, we put together an updated look at the Chiefs’ offseason roster following the first wave of free agency. The Chiefs only have 57 players on the roster right now, so they still have a long way to go to get to 90. They’ll fill that space with around 8-10 players in the draft and another 10-12 in undrafted free agency, but that leaves about 11-15 spots that the team will need to fill through free agency pickups and/or re-signings. The team could use a little bit more meat at running back, offensive line, defensive line and safety.

Draft notes

  • Chiefs Wire editor Charles Goldman released his first Chiefs 2023 seven-round mock draft. He has a good balance of players going to Kansas City with a couple of trades mixed in. Knowing general manager Brett Veach’s tendencies, some sort of trade is almost a guarantee every year.

  • Who are other analysts selecting for the Chiefs at pick No. 31? It’s a lot fewer offensive tackles now after the Chiefs’ signing of Taylor. One interesting development is that many are mocking a tight end to K.C. in round one.

  • The Raiders also made a handful of signings official, including offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor who proclaimed that he and teammate Kolton Miller will be “the best tackle duo” in the league in 2023. Bold claim, but both players did play well last season.
