Meet the Chiefs’ 2022 NFL draft class | usatoday

With that in mind here is your complete 2022 NFL draft class for Kansas City all in one place:

After a long three days, the Kansas City Chiefs have finally wrapped up the 2022 NFL draft.

Brett Veach started off with 12 picks, but after several trades, he ended up making just 10 selections. It marks the first time in his career as general manager that he has made more than six picks in a single draft.

POLL: Grade the Chiefs’ 2022 NFL draft | usatoday

They entered the draft with a ton of needs and they seemingly attacked those needs right away and with varying strategies. They traded up twice in the draft and traded back once. It never felt like they were reaching for need either, it felt like they were true to their board and looking for the best possible value that they could find while also addressing those needs.

In the end, they added seven players on the defensive side of the ball (Trent McDuffie, George Karlaftis, Bryan Cook, Leo Chenal, Joshua Williams, Jaylen Watson, Nazeeh Johnson) and three players on the offensive side of the ball (Skyy Moore, Darian Kinnard and Isiah Pacheco).

Maryland running back Tayon Fleet-Davis signs undrafted free agent deal with the Kansas City Chiefs | testudotimes

Fleet-Davis, who was at Maryland from 2017-21, was the Terps’ leading rusher during his senior campaign. With 721 rushing yards, 5.6 yards per carry and eight rushing touchdowns, Fleet-Davis was lethal out of the backfield in 2021. The six-foot Maryland native was also impactful in the passing game, catching 32 passes for 305 yards and a touchdown.

Xs and Os: Chiefs OL Darian Kinnard impresses in ‘Big Boys Club’ film room | usatoday

The Kansas City Chiefs might have managed to get another Day 3 steal on the offensive line in Kentucky RT Darian Kinnard.

Ahead of the 2022 NFL draft, Kinnard joined former Chiefs OL Geoff Schwartz on his show on FOX NFL, the “Big Boys Club.” If you’ll recall, Chiefs starters Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith are also members of this club after appearing on the inaugural season of the show last year.

Not only did Kinnard impress by sharing the story of his troubled childhood, but he casually flaunted his mastery of the Xs and Os. Schwartz broke down a ton of film with Kinnard, mostly from a pass-blocking standpoint, but you can see how some of his nastiness and aggression will transfer to the run game. They talked about how they approach running back chips. They talked about trash-talking. They talked about defending against twists and stunts.

Tracking the Chiefs’ 2022 undrafted free agent signings | chiefswire

The Kansas City Chiefs have wrapped up the 2022 NFL draft, selecting a total of 10 players, but the festivities are not quite over.

The team will continue to add undrafted free agents to fill out their 90-man roster. They’ll need to add just four players in order to completely fill the offseason roster, but they could also release some reserve/future signings in order to make room for undrafted players. They’ll also invite a number of players to try out at their rookie minicamp which will take place either the first or second weekend following the draft.

We’ll do our best to differentiate between undrafted free agent signings and rookie minicamp tryout invites. The Chiefs will ultimately announce the official batch of UDFA signings at a later date, but we’ll track all of Kansas City’s signings and list them here. Be sure to bookmark this page and refresh it for periodic updates.

Well That’s It For Rip Till Saturday, Have A Great Week AG!

I’m guessing he’s done in two years, and playing for family and friends 8/9 times a year (I hate that extra game) has to be worth something

Hopefully, we are now at the point where we can go 50/50 offense/defense in the upcoming drafts and keep the team stocked on both sides for years to come.
Having an offense AND a defense at the same time? Be still my 1969 heart.
