The Kansas City Chiefs were busy in the wake of the NFL Draft, hustling to try and find some diamonds in the rough with undrafted free agents. In total, GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid added 13 rookie free agents.
Leading the way for this year’s crops of undrafted free agents is Tennessee QB Tyler Bray. The signal caller left school early after starting 24 games for the Volunteers, but couldn’t find a team willing to use a draft pick on him.
Another very intriguing name is Demetrius Harris. The tight end planned on playing football for Arkansas State, but ended up playing basketball instead for UW-Milwaukee. The 6’7″, 230 pound Harris will do his best to follow the footsteps of Antonio Gates, who tormented AFC West defenses after starring on the basketball court.
The Chiefs also added a pair of teammates from tiny West Alabama. DB Otha Foster and LB/DE Ridge Wilson.
Local college football fans will also recognize defensive lineman Brad Madison and defensive back Brad McDougald. Madison spent five seasons at Missouri, while McDougald saw time on offense and defense during his time at Kansas.
Here’s the full list of undrafted free agents added by the Chiefs so far:
QB Tyler Bray, Tennessee
LB Darin Drakeford, Maryland
DB Otha Foster, West Alabama
WR Frankie Hammond Jr., Florida
TE Demetrius Harris, UW-Milwaukee
OL A.J. Hawkins, Ole Miss
OL Colin Kelly, Oregon State
DE Rob Lohr, Vanderbilt
DL Brad Madison, Missouri
LB/DE Josh Martin, Columbia
S Brad McDougald, Kansas
WR Rico Richardson, Jackson State
LB/DE Ridge Wilson, West Alabama
Once they get a look at players that participate in upcoming OTAs on a tryout basis, the Chiefs could add even more undrafted players.
