Granted, a ton can change between now and the final cutdown day, and some of the players not listed here will be headed for the practice squad, but here's an early look at a projection for the Chiefs' final 53-man roster.
QB (3): Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray (emergency QB)
RB (4): Jamaal Charles, Shaughn Draughn, Knile Davis, Cyrus Gray
FB (1): Braden Wilson
WR (6): Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery, Jonathan Baldwin, Dexter McCluster, Jamar Newsome, Devon White
TE (3): Tony Moeaki, Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce
OT (4): Branden Albert, Eric Fisher, Steven Baker, Donald Stephenson
OG (4): Jeff Allen, Geoff Schwartz, Jon Asomoah, A.J. Hawkins
C (2): Rodney Hudson, Eric Kush
DT (3): Dontari Poe, Anthony Toribio, Daniel Muir
DE (4): Tyson Jackson, Mike Devito, Marcus Dixon, Mike Catapano
ILB (4): Derrick Johnson, Nico Johnson, Zac Diles, Akeem Jordan
OLB (4): Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, Frank Zombo, Edgar Jones
CB (5): Brandon Flowers, Dunta Robinson, Sean Smith, Javier Arenas, Jalil Brown
S (4): Eric Berry, Sanders Commings, Kendrick Lewis, Husain Abdullah,
ST (3): Ryan Succop, Dustin Colquitt, Thomas Gafford
Notes: 54 players are listed, but the emergency quarterback doesn't count against the 53-man limit.
In lieu of carrying six cornerbacks, the Chiefs can simply shift Sanders Commings in certain packages.
