I've seen lots of stories and posts about who the Chiefs are meeting with or what Pro Days they are going to. However, it's been difficult for me to place any value on any of these posts. Thus far, I've been ignoring them all.
Why, you ask? It's simple...
During this offseason, I took a look at the grid that AP put together covering the players that the Chiefs had met with. It's a great piece of work and puts things in perspective. But, take a deeper look at it. See anything odd? Take a look at a list of whom the Chiefs actually drafted.
Not a lot of overlap. One player, to be exact. So this leads me to believe one of two things:
1. The information in the AP 2010 Grid was far, far from complete, or
2. The Chiefs are evaluating most of their players from tape and phone calls
Either way, it's hard for me to get jazzed up about who is meeting with whom. If I could get some input that the problem was #1, incomplete grid, that might help but then it also seems to say that what I'll read here about draft prospect meetings isn't going to mean much because the publicized meetings don't appear to correlate to who the Chiefs pick. I'm hoping someone else can shed further light on this, because I love the AP site, but the above is hard for me to argue with.
