2010 NFL Draft Reactions From SBN College Bloggers And Others

In case you didn't know, SBN has quite the bevy of college blogs on the network. It's interesting to get college fans' reactions to their players being drafted, because it often times gives you a completely different perspective on the player. 

After the jump, I've gone to some of our college blogs (and other blogs) and pulled out some links and quotes about the players the Kansas City Chiefs drafted. Head on over to their communities to chat it up and learn more about the Chiefs' draftees.

The 2010 NFL Draft Wrapup - Roll 'Bama Roll
Was super happy my Chiefs picked up Javier Arenas. He’s already the starting kick returner, and he’ll get a lot of play in nickel and dime packages. I can’t wait to see him make a couple of sacks. Overall I am very happy how the Tide came out in the draft.

Kendrick Lewis joins McCluster in KC - Red Cup Rebellion
Kendrick Lewis jumped to round 5 in the NFL Draft, selected this morning by the Kansas City Chiefs. Lewis was one of the defensive leaders of the Rebels last year and emerged in his career by playing with Minnesota Vikings S Jamarca Sanford. Congrats, Kendrick, and enjoy the brisket.

Former Tennessee Volunteers in the 2010 Draft - Rocky Top Talk
Berry not only went in the overall top five of this year's draft -- a rare feat for a safety -- he may start immediately for the Chiefs due to their current problems at the position. He'll be honoring Inky Johnson by wearing Johnson's number (29), and it won't be the first time, either. By the way, as good as Berry is, he says his twin brothers Evan and Elliot are just as fast, just as driven, and "way ahead" of Eric. They'll start high school in the fall. Yes, start. Perhaps they'll finish faster?

Chiefs take Berry with No. 5 pick " GoVolsXtra
Eric Berry could barely speak when the Kansas City Chiefs selected him with the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night. Historical significance perhaps? Nope, just laryngitis. "I’m going to be a Chief baby," a hoarse Berry was overheard saying as he spoke on his cell phone with the Chiefs. "I’m very excited. I would lose my voice, but I don’t have a voice to lose."

Still, it was another aspect of Kansas City that excited some of his friends. "The first thing one of my good friends said was, ‘I can’t wait to go visit you and eat barbecue,’" he said. "Half of them, that’s what they ended up talking about after I got off the phone with them. They were just talking about barbecue so I’m just excited to see." Illinois redshirt freshman quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, a native of Kansas City, said he got about 15 text messages Friday asking about Asamoah. "I said, ‘You’re gonna love him. I promise. He’s a great guy," Scheelhaase said.
