KC Chiefs Rookie Report Card: Ranking the 2022 KC Rookie Class

Despite a tough opening schedule, the Kansas City Chiefs reached the bye week with a 5-2 record. Before the season started, many Chiefs fans and people in the local and national media thought that general manager Brett Veach had hit a home run in the 2022 NFL Draft. Over the course of seven weeks, we saw how several of these draft picks contributed to the Chiefs and their winning ways.

Let’s take a look at each of the picks in the order they were drafted and grade them through the first part of the season.

Trent McDuffie: Incomplete

Unfortunately for cornerback Trent McDuffie and the Chiefs, a hamstring injury during the Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals sent the freshman to IR. There was hope that McDuffie could return before the bye, but the coaching staff wanted to give him a few extra weeks of rest before returning him to the field. The ideal goal for McDuffie is to be able to get back with the first team Sunday night football against the Tennessee Titans in Week 9.
