Good morning. A slow day for Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

Hundreds of college free agents will flood NFL rosters whenever free agency begins. The Chiefs will likely sign more than 10 undrafted players themselves. A few might make the roster. At least one will probably become a familiar name to Chiefs fans the end of 2011.

Here are five undrafted rookies that might interest the Chiefs.

Undrafted Impact from The Mothership

Matt Scrivener from Spanghahlem AFB, Germany wants to know if I think the Kansas City Chiefs made a mistake by passing up on Alabama running back Mark Ingram in the first round.

Bill Williamson: Actually, not at all Matt. I wasn't expecting the Chiefs to take Ingram. I know Thomas Jones will be 33 and this will likely be his last year in Kansas City. But the Chiefs are in good shape in the running game, starting with Jamaal Charles.

GRADE: B+

Kansas City Chiefs:  This dozen-player haul has borne a fair amount of fruit. No. 5 overall pick Dorsey hasn't been the dominator he was projected to be, but he's also spent most of his time (perhaps miscast) in a 3-4 defense he wasn't originally drafted for. Fellow first-rounder Branden Albert (No. 15) has been OK at left tackle, though he might be better suited to play guard like he did at the University of Virginia. But the crop really ripened after that - second-round CB Brandon Flowers is an up-and-comer and fleet-footed third-round RB Jamaal Charles has a 6-yard per carry career average and nearly 2,600 rushing yards since 2009. Fifth-round CB Brandon Carr has started all 48 games of his NFL career while sixth-rounder Barry Richardson.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration, along with Kansas City Chiefs running back Thomas Jones, kicked off its annual "Stay Out -- Stay Alive" public safety campaign Friday...

...The tagline of Jones' public address announcement expresses his simple plea: "Take the advice of this coal miner's son: Stay Out and Stay Alive."
