The Kansas City Chiefs have scheduled private workouts with two defensive players that they are looking to take coming Draft Day.
The first player is an obvious choice, LB Aaron Curry from Wake Forest. Curry is the best defensive player on the board and could fall to the Chiefs at #3 overall if the Lions pass him up. From NFL.com:
Curry has a private workout scheduled with the Chiefs on April 2-3, then an interview with them on April 14-15. The double-dipping comes after Kansas City scouted Curry at the combine in February and his pro day at Wake Forest earlier this week.
Kansas City has also sceduled a private workout with a lesser known prospect, DE Paul Kruger from Utah. Kruger is currently projected to be a second or third round pick. Kruger, 25, had 7.5 sacks for Utah last season and draws comparison from former Chief DE Jared Allen. From ESPN:
The junior defensive end from Utah is being closely examined by the Broncos and the Chiefs. Denver has already worked out Kruger and the Chiefs are set to work him out next week.
Kruger has been to Kansas City before. He spent his Mormon mission in KC from 2005-2006. This is what he had to say about the people in KC:
They were just down-to-earth, humble people. I also served right in the heart of Kansas City. So you were able to see a lot of different backgrounds and ethnicities. You’re out there serving people and seeing peoples’ lives change on your efforts.
While Kruger visited Kansas City, he became friends with Lynn Stiles, former Chiefs’ VP of football operations. Stiles had some good things to say about Kruger:
He was a very impressive young man, a big guy … and he had a strong testimony of the church. He’d come over for dinner, and we’d get into talking football.
So on a slow Friday afternoon in Chiefs Nation, what are your thoughts? Will Kruger be our replacement for Jared Allen in KC and will the Chiefs draft Curry if he falls to 3?
