Kansas City Chiefs show interest in a player from Hawaii

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey said on Thursday that the Chiefs met with some of the running backs at the Combine. He didn't give any names but it's possible of those backs is Hawaii's Joey Iosefa.

The Star-Advertiser in Honolulu reports that the Chiefs are among several teams showing interest in Iosefa, who played running back at Hawaii.

Iosefa is a 5'11, 247-pound running back who missed multiple games last year due to a foot injury and a suspension for a DUINFL Draft Scout lists him as a seventh round pick to undrafted free agent. He was one of the top performers in the bench press at the NFL Combine.

He has size like a fullback and the Chiefs still use a fullback in their offense. They even drafted one in the sixth round back in the 2013 draft who did not make the team (Braden Wilson). The Chiefs did trade for Anthony Sherman, which has worked out really well. He's one of the best fullbacks in the league. Iosefa has plenty of history carrying the ball in Hawaii's offense.

With as many as 11 picks in this draft, all positions are open to the Chiefs, including a back.
