Kansas City Chiefs 53-man roster has 9 rookies entering 2014 NFL season

Examining the KC Chiefs initial 53-man roster.

The Kansas City Chiefs 53-man roster came out after Saturday's NFL roster cuts but that will be an evolving roster. After the Chiefs first 53-man roster was completed on Saturday, it changed on Sunday with the addition of defensive lineman Damion Square.

For now, the Chiefs roster has nine rookies -- six draft picks and three undrafted rookies.

I'm not sure the Chiefs rookies will have a huge impact this season but there is a path to the field for most of them with players in front of them either on the older side or with a contract coming up.

The Chiefs had 10 players on their initial 53-man roster last year: LB Nico Johnson, OT Eric Fisher, S Bradley McDougald, LB Josh Martin, C Eric Kush, TE Travis Kelce, RB Knile Davis, S Sanders Commings, QB Tyler Bray.

Draft picks

LB Dee Ford
CB Phillip Gaines
RB De'Anthony Thomas
QB Aaron Murray
G Zach Fulton
G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif

Undrafted players

WR Albert Wilson
S Daniel Sorensen
K Cairo Santos
