Casserly Calls This Draft Best in 27 Years, Expects More Trades
"First of all," he said moments ago, "I think this is the best first round that I have seen since Dan Marino's draft year of 1983. And the reason is this: There are more first round juniors in this draft than I have ever seen." He calls Sam Bradford, and not Jimmy Clausen, the best quarterback in the draft. "Next," he continued, "I think you'll see more trades this year and here's why. The draft is broken up into three days this year. The first round is on Thursday night, Friday night is rounds two and three, and on Saturday rounds four through seven. "With all that extra time in between the rounds, that will lead to more trades."
Former Chiefs QB Coach Working With Sam Bradford
Remember Terry Shea? He was the Kansas City Chiefs quarterbacks coach from 2001-03 and then again in 2005 until Herm Edwards relieved him of his duties in January of 2007. He was there for the rise of the Chiefs offense under Dick Vermeil, as well as the rise of Trent Green. Shea was last seen working with Matthew Stafford and Josh Freeman before last April's draft. Both of those guys were first round picks. Starting on Monday, Shea will work with Sam Bradford to prepare him for April's draft, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports.

Every year, he's not supposed to be the starter and somehow he's been there since 2006, surviving not only the regime change but the scheme change as well. The song remains the same with folks proclaiming the Chiefs need to select a defensive tackle in April's draft. One player, Torell Troup of UCF, stands 6'3" and weighs 310 pounds, and has caught the eye of Romeo Crennel the last week in the East-West Shrine practices.

Crennel Calls Coaching in East-West Game "Invaluable" for Chiefs
"Well, you get a chance to look at some of the guys on defense and work with them closely to see what kind of focus they have, what kind of ability they have, how they work on the practice field as well as how they work in the classrooms. "So, it will be invaluable for us."

"They're both intense guys at times but they're pros as far as football goes," he said. "You can agree to disagree.

"This is something I learned a long time ago and I think it still applies today - the head coach might not always be right but he's still the head coach."
