The Chiefs have gone through several weeks of training camp and showed some of the best early Chiefs football in a long time in their preseason debut vs. Arizona Cardinals. I first projected a 53 man roster about 2 months ago, this roster has about a half dozen different names on it. I will follow up this projection with a break down of the changes with in the next 24 hours.
This projection really throws out of the window your typical roster configuration by position and incorporates the top 53 contributors that will make the Chiefs final 53. I broke it down by position, though, for easy reading.
