Post cuts Depth Chart
So Arrowheadpride posted what the depth chart looks like now that the cuts were made. I like this perspective because it shows where we are deep and shallow.
What I found interesting was that we kept 9 linemen, which is unusual in this day and age. But after last year, I welcome having some depth.
I was also surprised that we kept only 4 CBs, but we kept 6 safeties.
They messed up the first post. Matt Reynolds was indeed cut. It is only 8 OL kept.
But I agree with Safety. I am excited about McDougald, he seemed to work his tail off this off season.
Thanks for catching that. Here is a better link. Straight from the source:
we used so many return men during the pre season, I still guess DMC is our main returner, but I wonder if we will get looks at others
Honeslty I believe mccluster wasnt as good as the other return men.
Agreed. I have to think this was the determining factor in keeping Wylie. Wylie was impressive in the return.
I went back and checked all the plays on ESPN.com and McCluster didn't return any kickoffs in preseason. He only returned 2 punts---one against the Saints for 55 yds (excellent) and one against the 49ers for -4 yds (poor). He didn't get many touches in preseason, I believe because the Chiefs already know what they have with him. Wylie and Davis did very well, but haven't done it in a real game yet, so it makes sense that Dex would still be listed first on the depth chart at this point.

They will get to return plenty of kicks/punts regardless of where they are listed on the depth chart and I wouldn't be at all surprised if the order changes after the first couple of games.
