Chiefs Scouts Headed to Florida/Tennessee Game

Finally! A reason to talk about Tim Tebow on Arrowhead Pride....

A few Kansas City Chiefs scouts are headed down to Gainesville, FL this weekend to watch the Tennessee Volunteers take on the Florida Gators inside Ben Hill Griffin stadium.

Chris Steuber of reports that representatives of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins will be there as well as the Chiefs.  Considering the talent coming out of these schools, I would imagine the majority of NFL teams will be represented.

The game is being touted among some folks as a battle between Tennessee safety Eric Berry and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

A recent ESPN the Magazine article on Berry said he might be drafted above USC safety Taylor Mays, who we've talked about on a few occasions. With the loss of Bernard Pollard, and depending on how well the DaJuan Morgan/Mike Brown tandem performs, Berry's an interesting story.  You can read more about him in the article.

Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver was recently quoted as saying he would certainly consider Tim Tebow if the Jaguars were in the position to draft him.  The excitement that a player like him brings could certainly help bring the folks from Jacksonville into the stadium on Sundays.

Of course, there are more pro prospects from each team.  My guess is that the Chiefs are there look at a few players, not just one or two.

For more information on the Gators, check out SB Nation's Alligator Army.  For the Volunteers, visit Rocky Top Talk (one of the best SBN sites in my estimation).

Ms. Arrowhead Pride is a UT alum so if she reads the site (she doesn't) then she'll probably chime in with some Vols talk.
