A list of the Chiefs first team on both offense and defense after the first day of training camp.

It's just one day of training camp but it's fun to look at how the Kansas City Chiefs lined up and compare them to other teams. With position battles and injuries, this list of first team players more than likely will not be the same group that lines up on Week 1.


QB: Alex Smith

RB: Jamaal Charles
FB: Anthony Sherman

RT: Donald Stephenson
RG: Rishaw Johnson
C: Rodney Hudson
LG: Jeff Allen
LT: Eric Fisher

TE: Anthony Fasano

WR: Dwayne Bowe
WR: Donnie Avery
WR: Junior Hemingway

Swap out Hemingway and Sherman depending on the personnel. Travis Kelce comes in on two tight end sets.


DE: Mike DeVito
NT: Dontari Poe
DE: Allen Bailey

OLB: Tamba Hali
LB: Joe Mays
LB: Derrick Johnson
OLB: Justin Houston

CB: Marcus Cooper
CB: Ron Parker
CB: Chris Owens (nickel)

S: Eric Berry
S: Husain Abdullah

Sean Smith remains on the second team. That's interesting. He was demoted after his arrest over the summer and we kind of assumed he would just return to his starting role during camp. Through one day, he has not.
