Tight End. 2nd Year. Demetrius Harris. 47. player. 124.

This one might be a bit obvious, but Demetrius Harris will have a lot of focus this entire pre season. With Andy Reid running a tight end friendly offense, Harris will have his opportunities to make some plays.

After only making the practice squad in 2013, Harris will likely make the 53 man roster this season with the recent retirement from Sean McGrath. Still, it would be nice to see this kid get out there and show us all the hype.

Harris, like many other tight ends these days, is a basketball convert. His 6-foot-7 frame could come in handy for the Chiefs offense, especially in the redzone.

His biggest competition to make the roster is Richard Gordon, but from the sounds of it, Harris is the guy likely to make the team. While his skills are still so very raw, Harris, and the Chiefs, seem confident that he’s making the right strides. Todd Palmer of the Kansas City Star had a nice write-up on Harris during last week of training camp.

"“I’ve got confidence I’m going to make it,” said Harris, whose main competition now is four-year veteran Richard Gordon. “I don’t want to just assume I’m going to make it. I know I’ve still got to work hard to make it.”"

Harris will be taking all of his reps with the third offensive unit, which means Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray will be looking to get him the ball. It will be interesting to see how much of an impact Harris could make, and, how far he’s come with his blocking skills.
