Justin March is an undrafted free agent linebacker out of Akron. You probably didn't think twice when it was reported that the Kansas City Chiefs had signed him after the 2015 NFL Draft. They sign all kinds of undrafted free agents and most of them don't work out.
But sometimes they do work out. It appears that may be the case with March, who is putting on a strong training camp.
Starting inside linebacker Josh Mauga was injured during Wednesday's training camp practice. March was among the players who stepped in to replace him. An undrafted free agent out of Akron getting first team reps in his first year is impressive.
The KC Star's Terez Paylor had a nice story on March recently. If Mauga can't play in Saturday's preseason game, we can get ready to see a lot more of March.
Here are a few of the tweets on him so far this camp:
