Chiefs Checkin' Out the Gators This Weekend

The Kansas City Chiefs scouts will be making a trip down to Gainesville, FL this weekend.  Per Chris Steuber of Scout, the Chiefs will be checking out players in Florida's matchup with Vanderbilt.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and St. Louis Rams are expected to have scouts in attendance as well.

Florida is the No.1 team in the nation and they're not short on pro prospects.  Unfortunately, I'm not the draft guru some of you are, but here's a list of a few of the bigger names coming out of Florida this year.

QB Tim Tebow - Would the Chiefs even think about doing this?  Interesting conversation on this, I'm sure.

DE Carlos Dunlap - 6'6", 290 pounds.  Not sure where he would fit right now.  Rated No. 7 on Mel Kiper's big board.

LB Brandon Spikes - Just suspended a game for eye-gouging another player but an intriguing prospect.

CB Joe Haden - 5'11", 190 pounds.  He jumped up to No. 11 on Kiper's big board. 

I'm not quite sure who the targets might be on Vanderbilt.  Fill us in if you know of any.

We have not received word whether the Chiefs are checkin' out the Jayhawks again.  They've watched them play in person on several occasions this season.  KU plays K-State this weekend.

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli personally observed a workout with UMass LT Vladimir Ducasse last week. This weekend, Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland will check him out as well.
