Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki Takes In Iowa Pro Day

Iowa held its pro day on Monday as 32 NFL scouts and five assistant coaches looked on at a group of players that includes a pair of possible first round picks and maybe even a future Kansas City Chief.

Here are the players that were in attendance: defensive lineman Christian Ballard, defensive end Adrian Clayborn, punter Ryan Donahue, free safety Brett Greenwood, linebacker Jeremiha Hunter, linebacker Troy Johnson, defensive tackle Karl Klug, fullback Brett Morse, tight end Allen Reisner, safety Tyler Sash, long snapper Andy Schulze, quarterback Ricky Stanzi, linebacker Jeff Tarpinian and offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde.

The player that intrigues me the most is Stanzi, the quarterback. He's a smart player who has the intangibles the Chiefs like as well as that Iowa pedigree. He's someone I'd keep an eye on if the Chiefs are looking for a quarterback behind QB Matt Cassel.

Also in attendance at the pro day, according to the Hawkeyes official site: Chiefs and former Iowa TE Tony Moeaki, who talked about his pro day in 2010.

"It was part of the process and you just have to do it," Moeaki said. "I had a lot of fun at Pro Day last year. You get to do all the testing and it's up to you to show the scouts what you can do."

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli is friends with Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz so I think Pioli probably has a pretty good read on these guys and what they can and can't do.
