Chiefs Work Out Hillsdale's OT Jared Veldheer

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs have been keeping an eye on prospects at large schools as well as small schools and that includes D-II Hillsdale College.

Last week, Bill Muir, Chiefs offensive line coach, worked out Jared Veldheer.

A 6'8", 312 pound offensive tackle, Veldheer posted some solid numbers at the NFL Combine last month.

Veldheer was one of the most impressive offensive linemen prospects to work out Saturday. He was a top performer in just about every category, and he measured in at 6-foot-8 and 312 pounds with 33-inch arms.

The day before the Chiefs worked him out, the Rams did (who are five selections ahead of the Chiefs in every round). After the Chiefs, the Eagles worked him out.

The Hillsdale pro day is today so I imagine the Chiefs will be taking a closer look once again.

NFL Draft Scout rates him as the ninth best tackle in the draft and projected to go in the 2nd-3rd round.
