He has to pass a physical. The Chiefs give up a 7th round pick in the 2018 draft. He has a lot of potential, and the Chiefs must feel depth was needed. Played in 15 games last year with 13 starts and had 3 interceptions. Hope he makes the final 53.

If this leads to either Fleming or Cooper getting cut, then awesome.

He played in the 4th for sure. Only STs before that I believe. Definitely disappointing for a guy so highly drafted.

for sure, all of our drafted corners seem to be failing. Or they're all getting the Steve Nelson treatment.

Heard good things from 9ers on Acker though. Didn't seem to fit the new defense/Chip Kelly. Maybe we can turn it around with out coaching.

It shouldn't be surprising to see Russell get worked in slowly. This is the guy coming off of a broken leg, who also missed all of 2014.

I think D.J. White has played quite well, and has seen a bit more playing time to reflect that. he was particularly good against Seattle. Which makes sense. White is the most seasoned of the trio. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw White get more playing time early in their careers, with a shift to Russell as he kind of starts to catch up. White has the lower floor, but Russell the higher ceiling, IMO. Murray I've seen less of, but last I knew he was penciled in at S, which I haven't watched nearly as much.

Regardless, I'm not too worried. We were spoiled by Peters. Normally DB is a slow to adjust position. If the trio got too high on the depth chart, it would say more about guys like Gaines and Nelson, than it would about the rookies.

Though who knows. This time last year, on the Chiefs depth chart, Peters was the #4 CB, Morse was the #2 C, and Conley was the #13 WR, so it may not mean much once the season hits anyway.

Am agreeing with your reasoning on the many points made. I like Murray. Saw him briefly in college. He could make big plays at Minnesota.
