Pre-draft visits may not mean much but we can confirm another visit for the Kansas City Chiefs. A league source tells us the Chiefs brought in Louisville RB Senorise Perry for a visit to Kansas City. Note that visits to the team's headquarters do not include workouts -- just visits.
The 5'11, 206-pound Perry ran for 677 yards on 141 carries last season after running for 705 yards on 136 carries the year before. He tore his ACL near the end of 2012, which is possibly part of the reason the Chiefs are bringing him in. I've noticed they've been bringing in late round players who have a medical history. Obviously he's healthy enough if he played last season, too.
Perry had 18 receptions in each of the last two seasons. He also returned 22 kicks over the last three seasons.
The Chiefs were repped at Louisville's pro day, which was highlighted by workouts from QB Teddy Bridgewater and S Calvin Pryor. NFL.com's Gil Brandt writes on his pro day: "Perry ran the 40 in 4.36 and 4.41 seconds. He had a 37-inch vertical and 10-6 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.38 seconds and the three-cone in 6.90 seconds. He performed 18 strength lifts. Perry will be a priority free-agent pickup for an NFL team following the draft."
Running backs don't hold the value they once did but in Kansas City we know they can still be valuable. Cyrus Gray is the Chiefs third running back and he will likely see competition for that role. Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis, who is coming back from a broken leg, will hold the top spots.
Immediately after the draft on May 10, the Chiefs will be signing undrafted free agents, which is where Perry could come in.
