UDFAs who could make KC Chiefs’ roster
2. Riley Cole, LB (South Alabama)
It makes a lot more sense to see a linebacker with an insane amount of tackles and that’s what jumped out when researching South Alabama’s Riley Cole, who signed with the Chiefs as a UDFA.
Cole played for the Jaguars for five seasons and put up monster numbers. He was an incredible tackler, totaling 218 tackles during his five seasons at South Alabama. The 2020 season was especially impressive for Cole, as he racked up 96 total tackles and had two sacks through 10 games.
The Chiefs added linebacker help through the draft but Cole is an intriguing name to keep an eye on. Sure he went to a smaller school but he offers a true tackling machine at the linebacker position and that’s something teams should not take for granted.
I like Cole’s chances of not only making the Chiefs’ final roster but being able to find his way onto the field as a special teams contributor or even as a backup linebacker during the course of the regular season. Maybe he’ll be the next big UDFA for Kansas City.
