2K20: The Rookies


Recommended Posts

This is the draft log for the last three years. Not much is left of 2018, just  Nnadi and a couple of fringe players not guaranteed to make the team. 2019 was much better. Every player made the roster, with three players--Hardman, Thornhill and Fenton--making sizable contributions.

1.32 RB  Clyde Edwards-Helaire  Louisiana State   
2.31 LB  Willie Gay Jr.  Mississippi State  from 49ers
3.32 OL  Lucas Niang  Texas Christian   
4.32 DB  L'Jarius Sneed  Louisiana Tech   
5.32 DL  Michael Danna  Michigan   
7.23 DB  Thakarius Keyes  Tulane  from Titans, Broncos, Patriots
2.24 WR  Mecole Hardman  Georgia  from Bears through Patriots, Rams
2.31 DB  Juan Thornhill  Virginia  from Rams
3.21 DL  Khalen Saunders  Western Illinois  from Seahawks
6.29 DB  Rashad Fenton  South Carolina   
6.42 RB  Darwin Thompson  Utah State  compensatory pick
7.02 OL  Nick Allegretti  Illinois  from 49ers
2.14 DL  Breeland Speaks  Mississippi  from Bengals
3.11 DL  Derrick Nnadi  Florida State  from Ravens through Raiders
3.36 LB  Dorian O'Daniel  Clemson  compensatory pick - from Bengals
4.24 DB  Armani Watts  Texas A&M  from Rams
6.22 DB  Tremon Smith  Central Arkansas   
6.24 OL  Reginald Kahlil McKenzie Jr.  Tennessee  from Rams

In addition, there is an impressive list of UDFA. At least half a dozen of these guys will likely make the roster or practice squad. It would not shock me if one or two of these players (not counting the punter) played important minutes in September.

Obviously no pre-season games. Will make it hard for UDFA and some late rounders to make the team.
Altered PS regulations may help to keep 'em though.

Chiefs start of "real" training camp will be delayed by two days because of a requirement of a 72 hours period between the initial two COVID tests.

There is a real battle brewing over the WR3 slot, between Hardman and Robinson. To put that in perspective, Robinson is the likely WR2 for most NFL teams. All that said, there are good chances there is no clear winner and they both get serious PT, with Watkins moving on after this season.

I have spoken at leangth about DB rookies, but don't forget the OL. We drafted Lucas Niang and have 2-3 potential players from the UDFA pool.
