Senior Bowl notes: Tight-end Nick Kasa

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

A member of the Kansas City Chiefs personnel was talking with Colorado TE Nick Kasa following Monday's practice in Mobile.

Kasa checked in at 6'5 271 lbs during the National Football Scouting weigh-in Monday morning. He's a converted defensive end that only recently started playing tight-end for the Buffaloes. Therefore he's very raw but seems to have the skill set needed to be a very good player at the position.

He's been turning some heads this week and will need some time to develop but has the size and athletic ability to be a difference maker for a team down the road. There has also been talk that Kasa could add 20 lbs and become a converted tackle if it doesn't work out at tight-end.

Here are a few of the tweets regarding Kasa from those down at the Senior Bowl.

Cecil Lammey of ESPN Radio in Denver is very familiar with Kasa from his playing days at Colorado and was impressed with him even before Senior Bowl week. I spoke with Lammey quite a bit about Kasa and he feels that it would be a great pickup for the Chiefs. A loose Rob Gronkowski comparison but without the RAC ability was made regarding Kasa.

I paid a little more attention to Kasa during the last couple of practices after seeing Chiefs personnel talking with him. He stood out. He showed an ability to adjust to the ball in the air when catching passes across the middle and along the sidelines. It was impressive to see such good hands for a guy that's 271 lbs and solid.

I don't know exactly what was said or how serious the conversation was between Chiefs personnel and Kasa but it happened on the field after practice and the Chiefs personnel member was taking notes. Maybe a guy to look out for in April's draft. In any case he seems to have helped himself down here at the Senior Bowl.

How do you feel about adding a tight-end in the middle rounds of the upcoming draft?
