League UFAs
Sean Weatherspoon - ILB (ARI) - 4 year, 16 million with 4 million signing bonus and 5.75 million in total guarantees. Cap hits of 2.75 , 3.5, 4.25, and 5.5 million.
A former playmaker for the Atlanta Falcons, Weatherspoon (6'1" 244) ruptured his Achilles in 2014 and spent 10 games on IR. Last offseason, the 27-year old Weatherspoon signed a 1-year deal with the Cardinals, expecting to prove himself for a big contract but an offseason in the tub nursing a hamstring injury kept him off the field and in Bruce Arians' dog house. He might look for another 1-year deal elsewhere, but he won't be returning to Arizona. Just as well, Weatherspoon might look for a long-term deal with a team that gives him some security to play out the rest of his career. Teams won't be lining up the Brinks trucks to attain his services, so he might be had for a mid-level contract. At 4 million per, this would put Weatherspoon around 23rd in the NFL for ILB contracts but the financial risk could be well worth the reward for the former University of Missouri product who is capable of 100+ tackle seasons and is reliable against both the run and pass. Weatherspoon could give the Chiefs and adequate replacement for Derrick Johnson should he retire, or would provide them with a dynamic 1-2 punch on the inside if he returns.
  • Cap hit for Tyler Bray in 2016 is 620,000.
  • Estimated cap hit for Jah Reid is 1.76 million (860,000 salary was reported, guessing that is guaranteed along with guessing a 3 million signing bonus, 150,000 annual workout bonus, and 1 million roster bonus in 2018).
  • The recent signing of Mike Daniels to a 4 year, 41 million extension in Green Bay is certainly cause for concern with Jaye Howard's value. I have the Chiefs' retaining him at 4 years and 33 million, but wouldn't be at all surprised if he were to get more. This becomes a major concern with Dontari Poe set to make a truckload next offseason, someone I'm expecting to make more than 10 million per.

Cap Estimates
Spending prior to draft class at $143.1 million. Draft class reserve at $7 million. Total cap hits $150.1 million. Expected cap $152 million.

1. CB Eli Apple - Ohio State 6'0" 200, rSo.

I'm expecting that KC won't be able to retain all of there free agents and the biggest hit will probably be losing Sean Smith at corner. The Chiefs have some great youngsters in Marcus Peters and Phillip Gaines, providing Gaines comes back 100% from injury. They need more there though, and Apple is the type of physical, man cover corner that Sutton loves. Apple is athletic with quick, loose hips that allow him to turn and run with receivers. Apple has a strong initial jam off the line of scrimmage in press. A solid run support player who's only major knock is his wrap up on tackles.

2. OG Joshua Garnett - Stanford 6'4" 321, Sr.

The Chiefs' guard position really has been in constant flux for quite some time. After spending an offseason trying to upgrade with the signing of Paul Fanaika and the trade for Ben Grubbs, one would have thought it would improve. The problem is, neither of those signings, tying up millions on the roster, have seen the field much nor produced well when on it. Grubbs may just be having problems with his back this season, and one could hope he returns to his former self next season. Fanaika was a headscratcher from the beginning and hasn't seen the field, sitting on IR this season. It's hard to see the Chiefs continue on with such uncertainty at the position, and that includes bringing back oft-injured Jeff Allen. Joshua Garnett, in my opinion, is the best guard in college football by a wide margin. This is a kid that is big, he moves very well, and he brings some nasty with him every snap. I like a guard that can get out and move in space and hit second level blocks, and Garnett is one of the best I've seen in years at doing just that. He's also big enough to hold his ground and not get pushed back into the quarterbacks lap every play, plus he can generate some movement in the run game.

3. WR Braxton Miller - Ohio State 6'1" 205, Sr.

The Chiefs receiving corps has went from a no-man show to a one-man show after the acquisition of Jeremy Maclin as their number one last season. Albert Wilson has been sporatic at best. I haven't seen enough from Chris Conley to show me he's going to be something special just yet, but I'll be patiently watching him develop. I've added Rishard Matthews from Miami in past scenarios, but I may be underestimating his value and opt to instead fill the position via the draft. Miller remains a work in progress at receiver with only one year of experience at the position. However, Miller is an electrifying playmaker whenever he gets his hands on the ball and he possesses great size for the position. After a season or two in the NFL working on his craft, Miller could be the explosive player that KC needs.

4. OT Joe Haeg - North Dakota State 6'5" 300, Sr.

The right tackle position has been a thorn in the Chiefs' side for a few years now; let's call it a revolving door of medicority or worse. It really is time for KC to give themselves a pair of bookend tackles that can consistently keep Alex Smith standing upright. The problem is, the Chiefs made a rather significant committment to Jah Reid with a 3 year contract extension. I believe this signifies a desire to develop a right tackle from a mid round pick rather than spending top tier draft resources on the position. Haeg reminds alot of Eric Fisher, a long and athletic tackle that will need time to develop lower body strength and better technique. Haeg shows the lateral agility to be excellent in pass protection against speed out of the gate.

5. DT Matt Ioannidis - Temple 6'3" 292, Sr.

The Chiefs will have some free agent issues to address at 3-4 defensive end as well. Mike DeVito and Jaye Howard are both free agents, so I don't expect the Chiefs to bring both back. Howard has to be priority one at the position and is probably the second most important free agent after Eric Berry. That being said, KC will have to continue to build depth via the draft. The Temple defense was undoubtedly led by star linebacker Tyler Matakevich, but in front of him was a very good player in his own right; Matt Ioannidis. Ioannidis is a very solid player in all phases and has lined up both at defensive end and inside. Ioannnidis is a big-time high-motor player that routinely pushes the pocket and forces plays in the backfield. I see him as a guy that can develop into a solid outside anchor in the Chiefs' 3-4.

5. FS Deon Bush - Miami 6'1" 205, Sr.

The Chiefs have some important free agent decisions to make with Eric Berry, Tyvon Branch, and Husain Abdullah all set to hit the market. I expect KC to retain two of the three, with Eric Berry being priority one. Bush is a passionate player that brings it every play, something the KC defense could use more of (and one reason I targeted King in round 1). Bush is solid in coverage with good range and brings the lumber on crossing patterns in his zone. Bush is a sound player against the run, just needing a little coaching up on making sure he wraps the ballcarrier even though he'll leave little doubt about hitting the runner.

6. DE Ronald Blair III - Appalachian State 6'3" 272, Sr.

The Chiefs' lose a great player in Tamba Hali if he chooses to hang up the cleats after this season, something I fully expect. If he doesn't, the Chiefs will undoubtedly find a way to bring him back. Until that situation is clarified, I'm expecting the Chiefs to look for depth behind Dee Ford and Justin Houston, especially given that both Dezman Moses and Frank Zombo are free agents. Blair is a guy I really like and he isn't very high on the radar yet. This is a guy that brings it every down, plays the run well, bends the edge, and can bear down on a QB. Blair is highly underrated, probably because of level of competition but he was a man amongst boys against Clemson this year. I'm sold.

7. WR Hunter Sharp - Utah State 5'11" 200, Sr.

The Chiefs simply must continue in their attempt to add skills to their WR group as well as to their special teams unit. The Chiefs struggled mightily in the return game and Sharp has some abilities there. A cousin to current Chiefs standout linebacker Derrick Johnson, Sharp would have a veteran connection on the team to help him learn to be a pro. Sharp has good speed and shows excellent ability tracking the deep ball. Excellent awareness on all passes and very reliable hands. Good open-field running ability. Great acceleration on jet sweeps.
