Chiefs Meet With a Quarterback, Two Fullbacks and a Defensive Back

New, comments

We've got word that the Kansas City Chiefs met with a few more players at the Senior Bowl this week.

Scott Pioli was known for taking a look at late round quarterbacks so one of them isn't a huge surprise. There's also two fullbacks and a strong safety trying to prove he can player cornerback as well.

QB Dan LeFevour (6'3", 229 pounds), Central Michigan

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli took a late round quarterback somewhat often while with the Patriots and LeFevour fits that mold. He has good size and some scrambling ability but his accuracy hasn't been great at the Senior Bowl practices.

He's projected to go in the 3rd-4th round.

SS/CB Kurt Coleman (5'11", 189 pounds), Ohio State

Coleman is trying to prove he can play both safety and cornerback in the NFL. He feels some of the nickel defenses he played in at Ohio State will help him tremendously as he makes the leap to the NFL.

He's projected to go in the 5th round and runs about a 4.5 40.

FB John Connor (5'11", 240 pounds), Kentucky

He got the late invite because a LSU running back failed a physical and couldn't play.

He's one of the few fullbacks that could actually be drafted, which is a rarity of sorts. He's an underrated runner and receiver and played in a school record 54 games, which means there's plenty of tape on him.

He could be drafted in the 7th round or a UDFA.

FB/HB Rashawn Jackson (6'1", 239 pounds), Virginia

NFL Draft Scout has had him as their top fullback for some time. He's more versatile than John Connor it sounds like and has the athleticism to be a great pass/run blocker and catch the ball out of the backfield.

He could be drafted in the 4th-6th round.
