The Chiefs became the latest team to announce their undrafted free agent class:
- Andre Baccellia, WR (Washington)
- Maurice French, WR (Pittsburgh)
- Aleva Hifo, WR (BYU)
- Kalija Lipscomb, WR (Vanderbilt)
- Justice Shelton‐Mosley, WR (Vanderbilt)
- Cody White, WR (Michigan State)
- Yasir Durant, T (Missouri)
- Jovahn Fair, G (Temple)
- Darryl Williams, C (Miss St.)
- Tershawn Wharton, DT (Missouri S&T)
- Omari Cobb, LB (Marshall)
- Bryan Wright, LB (Cincinnati)
- Rodney Clemons, S (SMU)
- Jalen Julius, S (Ole Miss)
- Hakeem Bailey, CB (West Virginia)
- Javaris Davis, CB (Auburn)
- Lavert Hill, CB (Michigan)
- Tommy Townsend, P (Florida)
The Chiefs had to spend relatively big to get a couple of these guys. Lipscomb got $110K guaranteed and a $10K signing bonus, while Williams got $107K guaranteed and a $7K signing bonus (Twitter links via Tom Pelissero of NFL Network). This was regarded as an epic receiver class with plenty of draftable players going un-selected due to the surplus, so it’s not surprising guys like Lipscomb are landing big bonuses.
As a junior at Vandy he had 916 yards and nine touchdowns, although he took a step back last season. Williams was a three-year starter at MSU who can play guard and center.
All told, the Chiefs inked a whopping six undrafted receivers. White declared early after racking up 922 yards and six touchdowns as a senior at Michigan State. Davis was widely expected to get drafted, with NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein projecting him as a fifth-rounder and Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller having him go at the top of the sixth, so he’s a nice get as well.
