2018 Disaster Draft: The Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have already shaken up their roster this season, trading Alex Smith for CB Kendall Fuller… and making this disaster draft one player easier. They’re headed towards their newest chapter, with Patrick Mahomes under center. That makes two. Tick off Hunt and Hill and baby, you got a stew going. Without further ado, the sixteen players kept in the sixteenth part of this disaster draft series. Halfway home, and I only hate myself a little bit for this.


Lost to Free Agency: Anthony Sherman, Zach Fulton, C.J. Spiller (75 times)


The No Doubters:

Player POS. 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022
Justin Houston OLB $20,600,000 $21,100,000 $19,000,000 UFA
Eric Fisher LT $13,950,000 $13,150,000 $12,050,000 $11,500,000 UFA
Derrick Johnson ILB $10,250,000 UFA
Travis Kelce TE $9,955,900 $9,968,400 $10,468,400 $8,750,000 UFA
Mitchell Schwartz RT $7,700,000 $8,000,000 $8,000,000 UFA
Patrick Mahomes QB $3,733,133 $4,479,759 $5,226,388 UFA
Chris Jones DE $1,699,426 $1,982,665 UFA
Kareem Hunt RB $778,238 $872,738 $975,758 UFA
Tyreek Hill WR $704,996 $797,464 UFA
Kendall Fuller CB $647,500 $750,000 UFA

As outlined above, Mahomes, Hunt, Hill and Fuller are cheap slam dunks. Toss in Travis Kelce, Justin Houston and Chris Jones and you have a solid core to go forward. Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz bookend a decent offensive line, with Derrick Johnson manning the middle of the Kansas City defense.


The More-Than-Likely Staying:

Player POS. 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022
Eric Berry FS $13,000,000 $16,500,000 $13,500,000 $16,000,000 $14,000,000
Tamba Hali OLB $9,395,834 UFA
Laurent Duvernay-Tardif G $5,360,000 $8,253,000 $9,000,000 $9,250,000 $8,500,000
Marcus Peters CB $3,049,505 UFA
Ron Parker FS $6,984,375 $7,500,000 UFA
Reggie Ragland ILB $981,034 $1,246,550 UFA

Berry might well be the most talented defensive player on the Chiefs, but he is coming back from injury and is owed a whole bunch of money. In all likelihood, he’s coming back, but Berry, 29, may not make it back and the Chiefs may hope the Conquistadors or Arches take him off their hands. Hali is very talented, but not quite what he used to be. Reggie Ragland is going to be a star, Marcus Peters is already there, if not for inconsistencies. Contracts for Parker and LDT already tell you what the Chiefs think of them.

The Leftovers:

Maybe the Conquistadors or Arches will get Darrelle Revis? Ahhahaha! There are some quality players here, and they will be poached in the draft. Shout out to Prince Charles Iwora, with the best name in the NFL.
