Former Wisconsin-Milwaukee basketball player Demtrius Harris impressed the Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff throughout offseason workouts and training camp and his hard work has been rewarded by the team with a spot on the practice squad.
Harris’ athleticism has never been questioned and now he will have the opportunity to fine tune his football skills throughout the season as he works on the scout team.
If Harris can follow the route that Antonio Gates took to stardom in the NFL, the Chiefs and their fans will be very happy with the decision to hang on to the former basketball star. For the Chiefs, they may have found a diamond in the rough and that is always the goal when you are looking through undrafted free agents to round out the rookie class.
Here is the full practice squad for the Kansas City Chiefs:
S Malcolm Bronson, OL Tommy Draheim, LB Darin Drakeford, WR Frankie Hammond Jr., TE Demetrius Harris, FB Toben Opurum, OT Matt Reynolds, G Rokevious Watkins
