Chiefs Scouts Checkin' Out Bulls, RedHawks Tonight

Tonight, we're treated to some college football action with the Buffalo Bulls and Miami (OH) RedHawks.  A handful of NFL players will be participating and the Kansas City Chiefs scouts will be in attendance to check them out.

Chris Steuber of Scout is reporting.

Using the handy NFL Draft Scout as a guide, I've found that there are two players in this game that are projected to be drafted in April, both with the Bulls.

As always, we really have no idea who the Chiefs are really looking at. It could be for UDFAs or it could be for draft picks. To make life easier on me, I highlighted the two players projected to be drafted after the jump.

WR Naaman Roosevelt

Nope, I've never heard of him either but I can see why he might be one of the players the Chiefs are keeping an eye on.

He is a 6'0", 187 pound record-setting receiver.  Some folks in the comments section of his NFL Draft Scout page suggest he'll be the next late round wonder ala Marques Colston.

When I say record-setting, I mean it.  He set single-season school records for receptions (104), yards receiving (1,402) and receiving touchdowns (13).

In fact, just last week he set career highs for receiving yards (165) and tied a career best for touchdowns (3).

He's projected as a 4th round draft pick.

RB James Starks

An interesting situation with Starks.  The Chiefs may be meeting with him or his coaches but they won't be watching him play. Starks opted for season-ending shoulder surgery but still hopes to find a spot in the NFL Draft.

He's a 6'2", 211 pound fifth year senior.

He set single-season school records for carries (272) and rushing yards (1,333) while missing two and a half games last season.

He's projected as a 6th round pick.
