After wowing the Kansas City Chiefs in pre-draft workouts, the Super Bowl champs signed Tershawn Wharton as an undrafted free agent. And despite an offseason scuttled by COVID-19, robbing Wharton of a chance to showcase his abilities in voluntary workouts and minicamp, he still managed to impress the Chiefs enough in training camp to make the team.

The 22-year-old Wharton moved from the practice squad onto the active roster, then from a backup spot to a crucial role in the middle of the defensive line. The past two weeks, he caused and recovered his first fumble against the Denver Broncos and picked up his first sack against the New York Jets.
