Chiefs Coach Todd Haley Hopes To Find The Next Patrick Crayton

Josh Looney of has a nice rundown of the Chiefs local pro day that took place on Thursday. We talked yesterday about what exactly a local pro day is and Looney has a nice write-up on it as well.

One thing that caught my eye from his article was about Patrick Crayton, the Cowboys receiver.

Crayton is from Desoto, TX so he attended the Cowboys local pro day a few years back when Todd Haley was in Dallas.

I'd say the local pro day worked out for Crayton and the Cowboys.

They ended up using a seventh round draft pick on him. Through three NFL seasons he has 196 receptions for 2,883 yards and 23 touchdowns.

Not bad for a local guy, right?

There were a number of receivers working out for the Chiefs at the local pro day yesterday, including D.J. Hord. I mention him because he comes from mine and Chris' alma mater -- Rockhurst High School.

He's quicker than hell and did very well at Rockhurst. He went on to Notre Dame -- recruited by Charlie Weis (and Ty Willingham) -- before getting injured and eventually transferring.
