The Kansas City Chiefs' depth chart is far from set. The team has lost several key pieces in the offseason, leaving a lot of playing time to be earned for the rest of the staff. Here are five players who have been moving up the depth chart during OTAs.

The free safety position is should be an ongoing battle, but Abdullah has made a strong case with great performances during OTAs. He started as a slight frontrunner, and if he keeps up his level of play, he should fight off all challengers and win the starting spot.

Ford will not be taking a starting job from Justin Houston or Tamba Hali, but the big-time potential he has shown should earn him some added playing time. If he keeps up his progress, Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton is going to find ways to get him on the field.

Bray is another young player making great strides. The Chiefs have four quarterbacks on staff, and Bray looked like the most logical choice to cut initially. His continued progress helps make a strong argument to keep all four QBs.

The former basketball player is a tight end project for the Chiefs who has been moving along nicely. He's been turning a lot of heads in OTAs with several impressive catches.

The release of Brandon Flowers and DUI arrest of Sean Smith have given the other cornerbacks a lot of work with the first team. Smith has been demoted to second-team duties temporarily as punishment, giving mainly Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker more of an opportunity to show what they can do. Rookie Phillip Gaines should also benefit from the recent events.
