These are the 90 players coming to KC Chiefs training camp today

The Blogfather

It's that time of year. Let's take a look at the players trying to make the Kansas City Chiefs roster this summer.

With the dawn of a new training camp, comes another chance for undrafted free agents and cagey old veterans to latch onto a team. Thus, the rosters are expanded to 90 players, giving teams a chance to evaluate at every position.

It's also a confusing time for fans, trying to figure out who the new guy is wearing #6 and playing wide receiver. So with that in mind, I've gone through the trouble of breaking down the roster, complete with numbers for your viewing pleasure.

Quarterbacks

This a position with a clear-cut starter. Behind Smith, Daniel is certain to be the backup after getting a $10 million deal. The real question is who claims the third spot? Stanzi and Bray are going to be battling all summer.

Running Backs

With Charles in the backfield, we always know who is in charge. Roberts is the unknown here, coming in as a undrafted rookie from Charleston. At 5'11'' and 222 pounds, he's a bowling ball.

Fullbacks

Sherman was acquired for Javier Arenas a few months back. Outside of him, Wilson and Opurum both come in needing a big camp to make this team.

Wide Receivers

Now this is a crowded group. Generally, only six or so players will make the team from the receiver position so a lot of competition will be going on. Incredibly, only Richardson and Hammond are rookies here. Will that help or hurt them against guys like Newsome and Hemingway? Remains to be seen.

Tight Ends

Without question, a group to watch. The opinions on how this shakes out have ranged wildly around here, so seeing it unfold should be tremendous theater.

Offensive Tackles

The intrigue lies in when Fisher will report to camp and how good he can be immediately. Outside of that, who out of Baker, Kelly and Reynolds would be the next man up should someone above them on the food chain get hurt?

Offensive Guards

Another good battle to watch. Schwartz and Allen should be fighting hard for a starting spot opposite of Asamoah, with a couple of younger guys in Durand and Hawkins trying to push them. Both are undrafted rookies hoping for an opportunity.

Centers

I'll be interested to see how well Hudson holds up after breaking his leg in New Orleans last year. Also, there was some talk about Kush being a sleeper as a sixth-round pick. Let's see if there is anything to that notion.

Defensive Ends

A lot of unknown here. DeVito comes over as a well-liked veteran from the New York Jets and we know what Jackson can do, especially against the run. Beyond that duo, it's not exactly a bunch which inspires great confidence.

Nose Tackles

I'll be keeping a close eye on Poe to see how much he's improved after a promising first season. Toribio and Powe have been here before, but will they be here in September?

Outside Linebackers

This can be described as two great players and a bevy of not sure. Catapano comes in as a draft pick, with the other three arriving as undrafted rookies. No matter what, a youngster or two from this group will have the chance to make this team.

Inside Linebackers

Derrick Johnson definitely has one starting job locked up, but what about his partner in crime? This is my favorite camp battle of all with some many names who could legitimately make a leap into the spotlight.

Cornerbacks

Can Brown keep the fourth corner position or will an unknown come in and wrestle it away? Brown shows potential at times and is good on special teams, making him a tough cut.

Safeties

Apart from Berry, this clan offers some interesting names such as Abdullah and Demps who could push Lewis for the free safety spot. With Commings injured, someone else might have a chance to step up.

Special Teams

Colquitt is the man. Enough said.
