New, comments

The KC Chiefs worked out a pair of cornerbacks ahead of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Kansas City Chiefs scouting staff continues to work players out. We've been tracking who they've been talking and will have a full update on that later. For now, we have the names of two more prospect workouts for the Chiefs -- Arizona CB Shaquille Richardson and Virginia University of Lynchburg CB Keith Lewis. Both look like potential undrafted free agents for the Chiefs, who worked out both players recently.

Arizona CB Shaquille Richardson

Richardson, who was a transfer from UCLA, has the size the Chiefs like at 6' and 190 pounds so that's a start. NFL.com said he had a terrific week at the East-West Shrine Game, opening up a lot of eyes. But his game tape isn't as impressive. That means more investigation is needed for the Chiefs.

NFL Draft Scout says: "A tall, long-armed defensive back, Richardson has an intriguing mix of size and speed, which is a very popular combination right now in the NFL. He has enough hip fluidity and foot quickness to play in space and play close to the line of scrimmage in press, but he needs to play with more consistency in coverage and vs. the run."

This is an outstanding interception below. Richardson is the one who pops it back in bounds.

Virginia University of Lynchburg CB Keith Lewis

Again, he has the size the Chiefs like at 6'1 and 190 pounds. Small school competition so the Chiefs need to do more due diligence on a guy like this.

One of his former coaches said: "There's not five guys faster than Keith Lewis in this year's draft."

Here's what Lewis said about challenge in his life: "Being away from the game for two yrs 2010 and 2011 was because of death and family issues so I know I had to get back at it to provide for my family. I had to separate myself from the streets because i stay in the hood where I see everything that's goes on so I didn't want to be that guy."

Here's a video interview with Lewis.
