This Sounds Like A Pro Day The Chiefs Would Attend

New, comments

Tall, short, fast, slow, big school, small school. It doesn't matter. The Chiefs have scouted a ton of safeties in this draft. They didn't add a safety in free agency so it's becoming increasingly clear that the position will be addressed in the draft.

That's why I wouldn't be surprised to hear the Chiefs were one of the eight teams in attendance for Northern Iowa's pro day where FS Quentin Scott had a solid performance. Gil Brandt of NFL.com reports:

Free safety Quentin Scott impressed scouts from eight teams at Northern Iowa's pro day on March 31st. Scott (6-3 7/8, 224) worked out as both a defensive back and a wide receiver and put together a really good workout. He ran a 4.40-second and 4.45-second 40-yard dash, had a 35-inch vertical leap, 10-1 broad jump, 4.18-second short shuttle, 6.88-second three-cone drill and completed 13 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds. His arms were measured at 34 5/8 inches.

Safety + defensive back + receiver....hmm. Two of those three positions are perceived needs for the Chiefs so if they weren't there, I imagine they're aware of him.

Scott is a big safety at 6'3", 228 pounds. Some teammates of his at the Texas vs. the Nation all-star game dubbed him Taylor Mays because of his size. Also like Mays, some folks are wondering if he'd be a better fit as an outside linebacker.

Again, we don't know if the Chiefs were there but Scott seems like the type of player that would, at the very least, be on the Chiefs radar.
