Chiefs Met With OL Vladimir Ducasse Sunday Night

New, comments

A few months ago, we caught word that Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli personally attended a University of Massachusetts practice to observe Vladimir Ducasse.

Today we learn that the Chiefs are interested in learning more about the offensive lineman.

Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that representatives from the Chiefs, Panthers and Jaguars met with Ducasse last night. Pioli and Todd Haley didn't arrive in Mobile, AL until this morning so my guess is that he met with other Chiefs reps.

"I feel very comfortable. I’m not nervous," Ducasse said last week of the Senior Bowl according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com. "It’s a big opportunity for me. To play against the best players, and with the best players, it will probably help me take my game to the next level, where I need to be. I have a chance to go out there and show scouts and GMs what I can do, to show them I’m a good person and I love the game." 

There are some personnel folks that believe Ducasse can play guard, left or right tackle. Versatile? Yeah, that's a Pioli type of player.

He's got the "late bloomer" tag as he didn't start playing football until high school. He weighed in today at 6'4" (5/8) and 326 pounds. He was also a three year starter at UMass.

Ducasse's stock has been rising a bit and a lot of folks are predicting him to go as high as the second round.
