We also have our first words from Tyson Jackson, the newest Kansas City Chief. From the mothership:
On his emotions right now...
“Right now I am just so proud that the Kansas City Chiefs selected with the third pick. I have a roller coaster going through my body right now. I am going to come down there and give them everything I possibly have on the football field and in the community and try and make the Kansas City Chiefs a better place.”
On how much contact he had with the Chiefs prior to the draft...
“I spoke with them a few times at the combine. I came to visit the Chiefs in Missouri. Not too much from there. I just look forward to getting to know all the coaches on the coaching staff and the players.”
