Mizzou LB Sean Weatherspoon Willing (And Able) To Play Special Teams

Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com caught up with a local guy that folks from one side of the State Line love and the others, well, hate going against him.

Yes, it's Missouri Tigers' Sean Weatherspoon, 6'0", 241 pound linebacker.

He's projected to be a first round pick by a lot of folks and it's not just because of his athletic ability. From many accounts that I've read today, Weatherspoon was the vocal leader on defense during practice. And his willingness to do the little things, like play special teams, will only help his cause.

"It's just going all out on special teams," he told Looney.

"Special teams is going to be the place where I make my living for a while. I plan to come in and just play every special teams I can get on and I'lll be willing to learn it and go full speed."

Like a lot of players in Mobile, Alabama this week, Weatherspoon said he's using this as an opportunity to demonstrate to the representatives from all 32 NFL teams that he's worthy of a high draft pick.

"It was fun," he said. "It was though, though. You get out here and learn a new system and all that. To see all these great players, it's fun being around them. And everyone's good so it's a chance to showcase what you can do so it's a big opportunity for all of us."

Are the Chiefs interested? Well, GM Scott Pioli did attend the Missouri/Nebraska game in Columbia, MO earlier this year.
