The Kansas City Chiefs finished their first preseason game of the year on Saturday against the Chicago Bears, and all eyes were on the first team, as well as the rookies.

For the most part, the rookie class did well. Of course some guys that were down the depth chart, and finally got a chance to shine also did good, helping their case for a roster spot.

Now that it’s been a few days, we can go back and look at how well the three rookies that we can expect to play the most, did during their first taste of NFL football.

Chiefs’ three main rookies showcased their skills

1. Trent McDuffie: A-

According to Pro Football Focus, The new Chiefs cornerback only played nine total coverage snaps on Saturday. He also wasn’t targeted once in those snaps.

Going back and looking at the film, McDuffie wasn’t targeted for a reason. And it’s a good one. He didn’t allow the players he was defending to have much separation off the top of theie routes. McDuffie is looking like a sure deal after the Chiefs got him with the 21st overall pick. He gets an A- because he wasn’t targeted, so we didn’t get to see those ball-hawking skills we keep hearing about as well.

2. George Karlaftis: A+

The rookie edge rusher had the most impressive day of the rookies, when you talk about volume and production. Karlaftis finished with a sack and a game-high four total pressures.

But here’s the kicker: Karlaftis registered just 14 pass rushes on Saturday. His pass rush productivity mark of 28.7 was fifth-best among all EDGE players with at least 14 pass rushes.

Karlaftis gets an A+ because of what he was able to do in the little time he was on the field.

3. Skyy Moore: B+

Patrick Mahomes’ newest weapon was really good on Saturday against Chicago. Even though he only had three targets, he still showed why the Chiefs are so excited to have him on their team. Moore still managed to catch every one of his targets and recorded 23 receiving yards while doing so.

According to PFF, Moore ran 21 routes against the Bears. In those routes ran, he showed off the elite speed we have been hearing about, as well as some separation. Moore gets a B+ because he produced when he was out on the field, only he wasn’t out there enough.

If Saturday taught us anything, it’s that these three rookies will contribute to the Chiefs success almost immediately. Watching this young team is going to be very, very fun.
