Kansas City Chiefs pick up one of the Philadelphia Eagles top scouts

New, comments

It's odd timing for this type of move but the Kansas City Chiefs have brought on scout Brett Veach from the Philadelphia Eagles. The reaction in Philly shows that Veach has a bright future, which means this could be a steal for the Chiefs.

Scouts don't often leave their teams during the pre-draft process but that's what's happening with Brett Veach and the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. Veach, one of the Eagles top scouts, is joining Andy Reid's staff in Philadelphia. With the Eagles, Veach covered the SEC, which has the most talent of any region in the country. The Eagles first round pick last year, Fletcher Cox, came from the SEC.

Chiefs draft interests: Who the Chiefs are talking to

Eagles reporters are calling him a "significant" member of the Eagles personnel staff. One said that he has future GM potential. We'll never get to know the scouts very well but I consider this a promising move for Andy Reid and the Chiefs.

How did Reid lure him away, especially at a time like this? More money? Bigger job title? Probably both.

Now he'll get to learn from John Dorsey. Veach is quoted by CSN Philly as saying: "Now I get a chance to work with John Dorsey. It was just an exciting opportunity to learn from another great NFL mind."

Below is either Brett Veach's Twitter account or an impostor. IF it is him, see that he has in the last few months tweeted about former Chief and Texas A&M Aggie Greg "The Real Deal" Hill. Match made in heaven.
