Chiefs' John Dorsey meets the media at the 2014 NFL Combine

USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey met with the media at the 2014 NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey spoke to the media at the 2014 NFL Combine on Friday and said he and his team were preparing for the 2014 NFL Draft. The Chiefs have the 23rd pick in this year's draft, which is just two spots behind the Green Bay Packers, who are run by Ted Thompson.

The Packers connection to the Chiefs -- Dorsey worked there for over 20 years -- has been a theme early on in this year's Combine with Andy Reid talking on Thursday about Dorsey learning under former Packers GM Ron Wolf, who Reid considers one of the finest to ever hold the job.

Earlier in the day, Thompson told reporters that Dorsey was a "real scout". Asked about that later in the day, Dorsey said, "I think Ted is a real scout, too. He's had a history of evaluating and selecting really good players. I think that's what you do as this process unfolds."

And you can bet the Chiefs are going to be taking the best player available. "History has shown if you stay true to that model, the best player will usually prevail," Dorsey said.

Dorsey also said it's up to him to get Andy Reid up to speed on all of the players available so he can have proper input as their draft discussions continue.

"You begin to build your board and you begin to identify what will unfold at certain slots," Dorsey said from Indianapolis. "As you go through there, you can determine who these players are that fit these criteria you have set up."

As for who they'll select? Of course Dorsey didn't tell us.

"I could do the list of our criteria," Dorsey said, "but at the end of the day does he make plays? That's what you're looking for."

That's what we'll be looking for in May, too.

More from Dorsey coming soon.
