Kansas City Chiefs Should Work Out Dominique Hamilton

The Kansas City Chiefs have multiple defensive injuries in week one, and it's unclear just how beat up the unit will be when they line up to face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon. Brandon Flowers and Kendrick Lewis are beat up in the secondary and might not play. Derrick Johnson is another playmaker who has been hurt at linebacker along with Jovan Belcher, while defensive linemen Anthony Toribio and Allen Bailey are also questionable. Simply put, this was a bad week for Tamba Hali to miss.

Yet one undrafted free agent is still available, and it's a local product worth checking into. Missouri's Dominique Hamilton was an impact lineman for the Tigers last year and earned several mid-to-late round grades heading into the 2012 NFL Draft. Instead he went undrafted and signed with the Oakland Raiders before missing the final 53-man roster.

Since then he's at least had one workout of note:

Yet as much as defensive linemen are needed around the NFL, Hamilton should eventually find some work. His size, experience and athletic ability should be enough to earn him a look, and it's an interesting time for the Chiefs to consider some help along the line.

The team has already worked out cornerback Chris Cook and linebacker Bobby Carpenter earlier this week, so it's clear they are looking for defensive help. If the situation gets worse along the line, Hamilton is a guy who could warrant a look.
