The 2011 NFL draft is seven months away but that doesn't mean the Kansas City Chiefs scouts haven't been chipping away at their evaluations for months already.
Chris Steuber of FOXSports.com reports that the Chiefs will be a handful of teams sending scouts out to Saturday's game between Notre Dame and Purdue.
Other teams scouts attending the game, per Steuber, include: Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Indianapolis Colts, Detroit Lions and Baltimore Ravens.
The players to watch include WR Michael Floyd and TE Kyle Rudolph. Both are juniors and both will be talked about as first and second round talents next April. Chiefs offensive coordinator and former Notre Dame head coach, Charlie Weis, recruited both of them to South Bend, IN.
We're months away but it sounds like the work never stopped.
By the way, I'm headed up to Notre Dame this weekend to catch that game so I'll report back if the Chiefs found their 2011 first round pick.
