Chiefs UDFA class among best in NFL per consensus board

The Chiefs enjoyed a well-received 2024 NFL Draft after KC took seven players, including Texans wide receiver Xavier Worthy in the first round and BYU tackle Kingsley Suamataia in the second round.

But just because the draft ended doesn’t mean the team was done adding rookies. The Chiefs added 12 undrafted free agents to the team’s 90-man roster ahead of offseason workouts this spring and summer. Another 10 were invited to attend the Chiefs’ rookie camp but aren’t guaranteed a roster spot.

Chiefs UDFA class among best in NFL per consensus board

Arif Hasan of “Wide Left” broke down every NFL team’s UDFA class and compared it with the 2024 consensus big board for this draft class. Hasan gave each player on the board a value from 999 to 1 and added each team’s UDFA player values together to create the “total” value of each team’s class.

This gave an analytical representation of how good or bad the UDFA class is relative to each player’s position on the consensus board. So if a player was ranked highly but wasn’t drafted, they’re inherently more valuable than those who were never going to be drafted in the first place.

The Chiefs finished sixth on Hasan’s rankings, behind only the Vikings, Panthers, Seahawks, Raiders and Chargers. Kansas City received an overall value of 7,250 for their 15 signings. The Vikings, who finished in first, had a total value of 8,943 for their 17 signings. 

The Chiefs, though, ranked second in the league with four top-300 players on their list. They trailed only the Panthers, who had five. Penn State linebacker Curtis Jacobs, Florida State interior defensive lineman Fabien Lovett Sr., Marshall offensive tackle Ethan Driskell and TCU running back Emani Bailey all ranked between 159 and 259 on the consensus board.
