Back at the NFL combine at the end of February, Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli called the incoming class of tight ends a strong group and that's a good thing.
"Tight end is definitely one of the many positions we need to get better at this year and improve the talent -- both the frontline talent and the depth," he said.
And also at the NFL Combine, the Chiefs showed interest in USC TE Anthony McCoy having an informal chat with him. The National Football Post has joined the chorus reporting the Chiefs interest in McCoy.
USC tight end Anthony McCoy has boosted his draft stock with strong performances at the Senior Bowl and the NFL scouting combine. Projected as a second-round draft pick, McCoy is regarded as an all-around tight end in terms of blocking skills and pass-catching ability and route running.
McCoy is projected to go in the 2nd-4th round depending on where you look.
The 6'5", 249 pound tight end was academically ineligible for the Trojans bowl game.
