6. Unleash Felix Anudike-Uzomah

The crazy thing about the Kansas City Chiefs' roster is how many talented players they have who still have a chance to emerge. This team has been such a brilliant combination of veterans and young players that there really weren't all that many snaps available to 2023 first-round pick Felix Anudike-Uzomah last year.

Anudika-Uzomah, a first-round pick out of Kansas State, played just over 200 snaps in 17 regular season appearances but was still productive in the snaps he was given. He finished his rookie year with 7 QB hits and 9 QB pressures according to Pro Football Reference.

Now that Anudike-Uzomah has had the chance to get his feet wet as a rookie in the NFL, it's time for the Kansas City Chiefs and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo to unleash him off the edge. He should be playing a minimum of 500 snaps this coming season as the Chiefs work to formulate a duo off the edge of late-first-round steals.

George Karlaftis was much more productive and involved in his rookie season compared to Anudike-Uzomah, but you saw the confidence in Karlaftis this past season as he racked up 10.5 sacks in 16 games. With Chris Jones and Michael Danna coming back this year along with Charles Omenihu in the rotation, snaps might be tough to come by, but there's no reason why Anudike-Uzomah shouldn't be heavily involved and emerging in his second NFL season.
