Chiefs Scouts Checking Out A Defensive End Turned Tight End

We told you earlier in the week that the Kansas City Chiefs were represented at the Central Michigan pro day. The main attraction -- the one that drew Charlie Weis -- was QB Dan LeFevour. In addition to that, Wayne State RB Joique Bell was there working out. The Chiefs scheduled a private workout with him on April 1st.

Also at the pro day was defensive end Frank Zombo. The 6'3", 269 pound Zombo was an all-state receiver in high school and, after being recruited by CMU, switched to defensive end. 

He hasn't caught a pass since the fall of 2005, according to Aaron McCann of Central Michigan Life (via Arrowheadlines).

By the time Pro Day ended, Zombo, who played defensive end all four years at CMU, was getting looks at tight end from the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos. He said he also received calls from the Detroit Lions.

"Prior to this, no one really knew I could play tight end," Zombo said. "I've really never had any coaching or any technique training - I just kind of just winged it today - and I think a lot of them were impressed with my athletic ability at tight end."

The Chiefs have expressed interest in other smaller-school tight ends such as Missouri State's Clay Harbor.
