Fresh off of back-to-back Super Bowl wins, the Kansas City Chiefs will be a tough roster to crack for bottom-of-the-roster guys as well as players who may have "barely" been on the 53-man roster last year. Although the Chiefs have to make compromises every year just like every great team, they are obviously still extremely well-constructed in every phase.

Now that the NFL offseason is moving beyond the mandatory minicamp phase, it's time to start taking a look at players who might be under the microscope with the impression they (or their competition) have made thus far.

Which Kansas City Chiefs players could be on the chopping block after the team's mandatory minicamp? Let's take a look at a handful of names of players whose status is very much up in the air with training camp on deck.

6 Chiefs players on the chopping block after mandatory minicamp

1. Deneric Prince, running back

The Kansas City Chiefs have an ultra-athlete in running back Deneric Prince. One of the top jewels of the 2023 undrafted free agent heap, Prince has a unique combination of size, speed, and explosiveness. Despite his athletic traits, however, Prince was only active for a couple of games last year playing 15 special teams snaps.

There's a chance we could end up seeing Prince seize the RB3 job over the course of training camp, but the Chiefs brought in a couple of new undrafted players who will be competing with Prince for his job in Emani Bailey and Carson Steele. They also landed Louis Rees-Zammit, a rugby player by trade who could be a secret weapon in the kickoff return game.

Rees-Zammit's ability to make an impact as a returner could be Deneric Prince's undoing.
