Only Took One Practice For Eric Berry

Pretty good line from Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel....

Crennel was asked at his post-pick press conference if Dontari Poe, the team's first round pick in the 2012 NFL draft, was the starting nose tackle.

"Rookies, I never let rookies be the starter," Crennel said. "When Eric Berry came, I didn't make him a starter. He had to go out there and show me something first so Poe is going to have to do the same."

Then a reporter points out Berry was the starter after one practice and Romeo says with a smile, "That all it took!"

But in all seriousness, Poe could have a legit shot at the starting job. He'll be competing against 2011 sixth round pick Jerrell Powe, as well as Amon Gordon.
