Chiefs Meet With A Pair Of Tight Ends At The NFL Combine

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end position has been talked about more than the majority of franchises in the last year because of the departing of soon-to-be Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez. Since he left, the Chiefs have been kind of lost at tight end. Chiefs GM Scott Pioli talked about the tight end position -- and recognized it as a "need" -- according to Arrowhead Pride's Matt Conner.

"Tight end is definitely one of the many positions we need to get better at this year and improve the talent -- both the frontline talent and the depth," Pioli said.

He also called it this a "strong tight end group" so it doesn't surprise me that the Chiefs have been checking out tight ends at the NFL Combine, according to Scout.com.

The Chiefs had a formal interview with Pittsburgh TE Dorin Dickerson. He's 6'1", 222 pounds and has experience at fullback as well. He's expected to be drafted around the 5th round. Here's some more information on him.

The Raiders, the Cowboys, the 49ers, the Lions, the Bengals, the Ravens and the Cardinals are some of the teams he's interviewed with.

The Chiefs also had an informal chat with USC TE Anthony McCoy. The 6'5", 249 pound tight end was academically ineligible for the USC bowl game. He's projected to go around the 4th round. Here's some more information on him.

He had nine formal interviews last night but also talked informally with the Bengals, Seahawks, Browns, Falcons, Saints and Rams
