The Final 53?

In a matter of hours, the Kansas City Chiefs will finalize their 53-man roster. What surprises are ahead for some key veterans and some young players who are hoping to take advantage of a new coaching staff by getting an opportunity to compete for positions despite their youthful inexperience?

As I stated after the game last Thursday night, most of these cuts, if not all of them, were likely done prior to the Saints game.

With that said, here's my look at how the final 53-man roster will shape up.
