Kansas City Chiefs Have Top Two Undrafted Free Agents In AFC West

Bill Williamson, ESPN’s AFC West blogger, recently asked Steve Muench of Scouts, Inc. to help assist him in assessing the undrafted free agents in the AFC West, and it’s the Chiefs who come out on top. It’s an interesting note, considering that every other team brought in several more undrafted FAs than the Chiefs have this season — at least so far — but apparently you should expect a few of them to stick.

First, Scouts, Inc. say they love former Oregon defensive lineman Brandon Bair. Muench notes, “Bair has the long arms, quickness and bulk to transition from defensive tackle to defensive end in Kansas City’s base three-man front. He’s a hard worker who needs to improve his pad level and hand fighting to realize his potential in this scheme.”

Secondly, it’s not one of the several offensive linemen in camp, but a tight end who has the chance to stand out in Charlie Gantt from Michigan State, “The Chiefs have also done well to give Gantt a look in training camp. Gantt isn’t a game-changer or a dominant in-line blocker but he has the tools to develop into an effective short-to-intermediate target and wall-off blocker.”

Both players in particular are on the best teams they could be to stick at the NFL level. The Chiefs are playing it safe with Tony Moeaki right now and have Leonard Pope also in house, but Gantt certainly has the room to make his presence known. As for Bair, it’s another perfect fit given the room the Chiefs have along the defensive line at either end or tackle for another promising player.
