Following the 2020 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs were active in the initial wave of undrafted free agent (UDFA) signings. The Chiefs have inked 18 UDFAs so far after the Draft. In addition to the UDFA signings, the Chiefs inked a former XFL player as well.
Here is a list of the players and a little information about them:
Andre Baccellia: Wide Receiver- Washington
At the combine in February, Baccellia ran a 4.37 40-yard dash. In his career with the Huskies, he averaged 10.85 yards per catch.
Hakeem Bailey: Cornerback- West Virginia
This past season with the West Virginia Mountaineers, Bailey set career-highs in games (12), tackles (57), and passes defensed (9).
Rodney Clemons: Safety- SMU
Clemons was a four year player for the Mustangs, tallying up 272 tackles, 27 passes defensed, and 7 interceptions. One of his best abilities on the field is his tackling, as Clemons is a hard hitter.
Omari Cobb: Linebacker- Marshall
In his senior season with the Thundering Herd, Cobb set a career-high with 114 tackles (17.5 for loss), which was T-18th in the NCAA.
Javaris Davis: Cornerback- Auburn
At the combine, Davis displayed his speed and athleticism, running a 4.39 40-yard dash, following it up with a 35.5-inch vertical and 124-inch broad jump. In his collegiate career, Davis tallied 27 passes defended and 8 interceptions. He is smaller, standing at 5’8′ but can potentially find a role in the slot corner position.
Yasir Durant: Offensive Line- Missouri
Durant comes in as a lineman who can play both guard and tackle, displaying valuable versatility. He does a good job of using his size to create block angles against opponents.
Jovahn Fair: Offensive Line- Temple
Fair was a four year starter for the Owls and was awarded a single-digit number before the start of the season for being one of the team’s leaders for his performance on the field.
Maurice Ffrench: Wide Receiver- Pittsburgh
in 2019, Ffrench set a school record in recceptions with 96, resulting in 850 yard and four touchdowns. Ffrench also has experience on special teams as a kick returner.
Aliva Hifo: Wide Receiver- BYU
In a virtual pro day, Hifo displayed his speed by running a 4.41 40-yard dash. Hifo is also from head coach Andy Reid’s alma mater at BYU.
Lavert Hill: Cornerback- Michigan
Hill was first-team All-Big Ten the last two years with the Wolverines. He joins teammate, Mike Danna, as the rookies from Michigan to join the Super Bowl Champions.
Jalen Julius: Defensive Back- Ole Miss
Julius played his first three seasons at CB, but transitioned to safety in his senior season. In 2019, he set career-highs in tackles (68) and passes defended (7). Julius displays a versatility that brings value for Spags’ system.
Kalija Lipscomb: Wide Receiver- Vanderbilt

Justice Shelton-Mosley: Wide Receiver- Vanderbilt
Shelton-Mosley started his collegaite carrer at Harvard, playing his first three seasons with the Crimson. Over those three seasons, he was a two-time STATS FCS All-American. Shelton-Mosley ranks third all-time in receptions and fifth all-time in receiving yards in program history.
In his lone season with the Commodores, he was used mainly on special teams, returning 17 kickoffs and 16 punt returns.

Darryl Williams: Offensive Line- Mississippi State
Williams played at LG and center during his time at Mississippi State, which pitted him against some of the best talent that college football had to offer. Last season, he started every game at center for the Bulldogs. Williams has versatility on the interior of the line, where the Chiefs need depth.
Bryan Wright: Linebacker- Cincinnati
Wright was named First-Team All-American Athletic Conference (AAC) after a year with 99 tackles (14.5 for loss), 7 quarterback hurries, 4.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles. He also added 5 passes defensed in coverage.
