Kansas City Chiefs fans, now that the 2015 NFL Draft is winding down, don’t think that personnel acquisition stops. As the finals round goes into the books, teams begin the scramble to land the best undrafted free-agent prospects.

Don’t ignore these guys. Hall-of-Fame players have entered the NFL as afterthoughts undesired by any team.

Undrafted Free Agents, typically known as UFA’s, can make-or-break your new player acquisitions for the year. Not only can UFA’s play key roles on special teams, sometimes they can emerge as key starters that are as good as anyone in the league.

Typically, players fall through the cracks due to injury (Priest Holmes 2 knee surgeries at Texas), or they are great athletes who played another sport in college (Antonio Gates, Basketball), character issues (Tyler Bray with Kansas City), or they come from a small school that lacked quality competition.

At this point, I thought it might be fun to look back in KC Chiefs history at the 10 best UFA’s ever signed by the team. This analysis does not include guys like Priest Holmes or Casey Weigmann, who came into the NFL as a UFA but had already established themselves on an NFL roster before coming to the Kansas City Chiefs.
