Chiefs Showing Interest In A Couple Quarterbacks

The Chiefs have expressed interest in a handful of quarterbacks in the 2010 NFL draft. However, it's not Jimmy Clausen and it's not with the sixth pick (that we know of, at least).

Like the Patriots do, the Chiefs are checking out late-round quarterbacks on which to take a flyer. It worked for Tom Brady (6th round) and Matt Cassel (7th round) so why not?

We'll start with Chris Turner, a 6'4", 212 pound quarterback out of Maryland. If he's drafted, it'll probably be in the seventh round.

Where might he end up? Turner said the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots have shown interest. A while ago, former Terp receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey called to tell him the Oakland Raiders, Turner's favorite squad growing up, were taking a look at him.    

We'll move onto a 6'2", 223 pound quarterback out of Edinboro College. Trevor Harris should have a shot at being drafted late.

Seattle was the first of three NFL visits Harris made. He visited the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 13 and the next day drove to Cincinnati to visit with the Bengals. Harris has also met with Kansas City Chiefs scouts throughout the process.

Interesting. The Chiefs have previously sent offensive coordinator Charlie Weis to watch late-round quarterback prospects work out.

Look for the Chiefs to consider a quarterback late in the draft.
