If you haven't noticed the links in Arrowheadlines, the KC Star's Terez Paylor is providing lots and lots of KC Chiefs-centric Senior Bowl coverage in Mobile, Alabama. The Chiefs and every other team are represented at the Senior Bowl and they, along with the rest of the teams, are interviewing prospects they might have an interest in.
Terez Paylor provided a list of players who have met with the Chiefs so far or plan to meet with them in the near future. This is not a comprehensive list. Read Terez's full piece here for more context. And read the rest of his coverage here.
Now, let's take a look at those players.
Oregon WR Josh Huff (Projected: 5th round): He's a 5'11, 211-pound wide receiver out of Oregon. Seems like the speedier type that Andy Reid likes.
Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste (Projected: 3rd round): During one of Andy Reid's press conferences this year, he pointed out that GM John Dorsey likes big cornerbacks. Jean-Baptiste is a 6'3, 215-pound cornerback, which is large for that position.
Utah CB Keith McGill (Projected: 3rd-4th round): Also a big cornerback at 6'3, 214 pounds. See a trend?
Georgia Tech OLB Jeremiah Attaochu (Projected: 3rd round): The Chiefs have Tamba Hali and Justin Houston under contract. Hali is due a lot of money and Houston needs a new deal after this season.
BYU OLB Kyle Van Noy (Projected: 1st-2nd round): Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com writes, "Arrow pointing up: Kyle Van Noy, BYU...A jack-of-all-trades linebacker, Van Noy is a smart, versatile linebacker who scratches and crawls his way to the pocket. He has tweener traits and needs to get stronger to better match-up with NFL blockers, but his twitchy athleticism and ability to drop in coverage will be appealing to 3-4 defenses."
Florida State S Terrence Brooks (Projected: 3rd-4th round): Here we go. A free safety. This is the position Chiefs fans have been clamoring for. He's a mid-round pick, according to projections.
Tennessee OT Ja'Wuan James (Projected: 3rd-4th round): Chiefs OT Branden Albert is a free agent. OTs Eric Fisher and Donald Stephenson are under contract. The Chiefs could use another swing tackle if they lose Albert.
North Dakota State OT Billy Turner (Projected: 3rd-4th round): CBSSports.com said he's a candidate to move to guard. His team won multiple national titles while he was there.
San Jose State QB David Fales (Projected: 3rd-4th round): The Ron Wolf system says you draft a quarterback every year. Fales, 6'2 and 220 pounds, is a transfer from Nevada.
At this point in draft season, I pay more attention to the position rather than the player. I don't want enough college football to have a smart opinion on many of these guys so I leave it to the experts to break down their game.
UPDATE: But wait! There's more!
