Chiefs Could Be Focusing on the Secondary Early During Draft Season

Hope everyone has been having a great Valentine's Day. I've got a brief update to the Kansas City Chiefs draft interest table we've got going. I added in a couple of players that the Chiefs talked to during the Senior Bowl. Expect the draft interests to increase by a lot as as we get closer to the combine.

This table should at least be a fun conversation piece up until the draft. I know it was last year. I want to note that this is not comprehensive, isn't intended to be and never will be. We'll never get every report of the Chiefs meeting with a college prospect but I imagine we'll hit on quite a few.

And the title of this post...purely speculative, even though the Chiefs have apparently talked to a good number of secondary guys relative to the other prospects we know about.

Here's how the Chiefs' draft interests break down by position so far.

  • Offensive line: 1
  • Secondary: 6
  • Defensive line: 2
  • Linebackers: 3
  • Running back: 1
  • Wide receiver: 1
  • Quarterback: 2

Refresh your memory after the jump. Consider this a draft interests/Tell us how you didn't screw the pooch with today's Valentine's day gift open thread. I gave Mrs. Arrowhead Pride a nice card, flowers and we spent a great day together hiking with the pup and making dinner together. Roasted red peppers stuffed with vegetables and quinoa? Yes, please.

What's everyone doing tonight?
