The Kansas City Chiefs have announced seven of the ten players from their rookie draft class.

A report came in earlier that George Karlaftis had signed, but with the rookies arriving in Kansas City for minicamp, it was only a matter of time before other players officially signed their contracts with the team. On Friday, the majority of those players had a chance to put pen to paper.

Each of the rookies agreed to a standard four-year contract, locking them to the Chiefs through the 2025 NFL season. With two first-round draft picks, both Trent McDuffie and Karlaftis signed contracts with a fifth-year option.

Below are the projected contracts based on draft slots for each of the seven players who have signed courtesy of Spotrac:
