Another KC Chiefs Draft Pick On ESPN's First Take

New, comments

For the second time in as many days, a Kansas City Chiefs rookie was on ESPN's First Take. On Tuesday, it was third round pick DE Allen Bailey talking about raccoon vs. possum and on Wednesday it was seventh round pick Shane Bannon out of Yale.

Here are a few things he had to say:

-Says he was watching the draft with his family and got the call from the Chiefs with about 30 seconds remaining on the clock.

-He expects to make his early impact on special teams. I think Todd Haley would probably agree -- that's the easiest way onto the roster.

-Wrote his thesis on how new media affected Barack Obama's presidency.

-Said he was more of a receiving fullback at Yale and didn't have a single carry last year. He says he could see himself filling an h-back or tight end-like role for the Chiefs, if that's what they wanted.

-Once football is over, he says he could consider coaching college football. He says he loves football and wants to be around it (which is one of the qualities GM Scott Pioli likes).
