The University of Florida is expecting 10,000 folks to attend their pro day. Tim Tebow is the biggest name in college football and the Gators are perhaps the best football program in recent memory.
The Chiefs will be there but that doesn't mean they're just keeping up on the big names.
Chiefs scouts attended a couple of smaller-school pro days and may be checking out a former teammate of Brandon Flowers. It's all there, after the jump.
Six players worked out for scouts:
Defensive tackle Malcolm Bennett, quarterback Armanti Edwards, tight end Tim Frye, defensive back Cortez Gilbert, linebacker Jacque Roman and defensive tackle Anthony Williams worked out for representatives of 10 NFL teams in attendance at the Appalachian Athletics Center, Sofield Family Indoor Practice Facility and Kidd Brewer Stadium.
Other teams attending include the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins.
Five of those teams will be running a 3-4 defense next season.
The target here for a lot of teams is WR Freddie Barnes, who was among the best players not to receive a Combine invite.
There were 14 teams that sent scouts to Bowling Green, and those teams included the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. Most of, if not all, these teams were interested in looking at Barnes.
Chiefs checkin' out Kam Chancellor?
Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers is apparently a fan of Virginia Tech safety Kam Chancellor. The two were teammates for a short when Flowers was at Virginia Tech.
Someone on Twitter asked Chancellor how his workout with the Chiefs went.
We're not sure if that means he actually worked out for the Chiefs or if he's continuing to work out with Flowers.
The 6'3", 231 pound Chancellor is expected to go in the mid-rounds.
Chiefs attend Maine pro day
We missed this last week but luckily our friend Ryan over at KC Chiefs Blog didn't:
All of the “big” pro days around the country are drawing scouts from every team — including the Kansas City Chiefs — but that doesn’t mean they are the only workouts that matter. Last year Scott Pioli discovered a young linebacker from Maine, Jovan Belcher, in his draft preparation and signed him as an undrafted free agent. Yesterday he had his scouts looking at another Black Bear prospect: OT Tyler Eastman.
