The 2019 NFL season is almost here as the final preseason games are wrapping up, so it’s time for the final projection of the Kansas City Chiefs 53-man roster. The Chiefs have several tough decisions to make as they trim from 90 players down to 53. Kansas City has great depth at RB, WR, OL, DL, & LB. Who will not make the cut for Andy Reid’s Chiefs? One spot that’s not complicated is quarterback as reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes will start and Matt Moore replaces the injured Chad Henne as the backup. Look for Kyle Shurmur to land on the practice squad. NFL Daily host Harrison Graham breaks down his full 53-man roster and practice squad projections for the Kansas City Chiefs IN THE VIDEO ABOVE AND BELOW!

At running back, Damien Williams and Darwin Thompson are locks to make the team. Will Carlos Hyde? Harrison thinks the veteran may be on the outside looking in with the younger Darrel Williams also in the mix. The Chiefs are very deep at wide receiver this year with Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, DeMarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman for sure making the team. Byron Pringle, De’Anthony Thomas and Cody Thompson are battling for spots as well. Could Kansas City keep 7 WRs? Harrison explores that possibility as well.
The defensive side of the ball led by new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is hoping to improve greatly in 2019. The pass rush should be disruptive with Frank Clark and Chris Jones creating havoc. Alex Okafor, Derrick Nnadi and Emmanuel Ogbah are comfortably on the team as well. Who else makes the cut? At linebacker the Reggie Ragland, Anthony Hitchens and Damien Williams are your likely starters. Darron Lee is safe as well. Several others are jockeying for the final 2 or 3 spots. The Chiefs secondary is probably the weakest link on this team outside of Tyrann Mathieu. Juan Thornhill and Daniel Sorensen are the other locks at safety. Kendall Fuller, Charvarius Ward and Bashaud Breeland are safe at CB. Who gets the depth spots? Harrison Graham projects the Chiefs final 53-man roster before the 2019 NFL regular season kicks off!
