Chiefs Rookie Minicamp Day Two Recap from The Mothership

Play(s) of the Day

A handful of athletic plays were made on Sunday afternoon.

(Disclaimer on top plays: they were in shorts and there's little contact)

Maybe the best run of the day came from Stanford running back Ricky Seale, who put on a nice jump-cut in the open field to create a running lane for himself in team drills.

Kenny Cook from Gardner-Webb made a nice catch deep down the left sideline early in practice. Cook adjusted to the underthrown pass and came down for a nice reception.

Da'Ron Brown made a really nice catch along the right sideline as he caught the pass off his outside shoulder.

Chiefs TE James O'Shaughnessy Already Getting Help from Travis Kelce from The Mothership

After spending just a week in Kansas City, James O'Shaughnessy, the team's fifth-round pick out of Illinois State, already likes what he's seen.

"It's been unbelievable," he said. "Obviously, when rookie minicamp started, it got even better because we actually got on the field. It's really exciting, hectic at times, but it's what you'd expect and what you'd want it to be.

"The opportunity to be here and play for the Chiefs is just unbelievable."

Chiefs' Mitch Morse wastes no time trying to adjust back to center from ESPN

For Mitch Morse, playing center was something in his past. He was moved to tackle for his last couple of collegiate seasons at Missouri and hadn't worked much on his snaps since.

Upon arriving in Kansas City for this weekend's rookie minicamp and being told by his Kansas City Chiefs coaches he would be working mostly at center, Morse figured he needed to brush up on those skills.

He did that in his area hotel room with his new Chiefs teammate, undrafted offensive lineman Charles Sweeton.

Chiefs trying out son of pro wrestling superstar Sting from ProFootballTalk

Borden Jr.'s hoping to make his mark in football, joking that he'd only go the wrestling route "if one day I'm homeless on the streets."

But if he doesn't latch on now, the idea of hooking up with Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis (the son of Road Warrior Animal) might be good for business.


In my post draft thoughts, I noticed a common theme among all the Kansas City Chiefs draft picks. One they were a confident bunch, with a hard nosed work ethic, that fits perfectly within the construction of the roster Head Coach, Andy Reid, and General Manager, John Dorsey, intended to build when they arrived a couple of years ago.

On Saturday, some forty players hit the practice field hoping to gain that first step to becoming an NFL player. Sure, only about a dozen of these rookie and first year players will get a chance to make the Chiefs final roster. However, for the top draft picks, they all appear ready to take that next step.

Former Grizzlies Takai, Van earn NFL rookie camp tryouts from The Ravalli Republic

No Montana football players were drafted this year, but former Griz great Zack Wagenmann is no longer the only UM player making his way to an NFL camp this summer.

Defensive tackle Tonga Takai and running back/wide receiver Travon Van each earned invitations to NFL rookie minicamps on a tryout basis.

Van was picked up by the New Orleans Saints while Takai landed with the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams held three-day camps this weekend for new players.

With NFL rosters virtually set, challenge of Browns' 2015 schedule comes into sharper focus from ESPN Cleveland

Game 15, at Kansas City Chiefs: Receiver Jeremy Maclin added to running back Jamaal Charles gives them some firepower. But after nine seasons, isn't the jury in on quarterback Alex Smith?

Dime packages should make return from Baltimore Beatdown

The dime package is what allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to field the NFL's best pass defense. Their scheme squeezed out talent out of rather average players like Ron Parker, Hussain Abdullah and rookie Phillip Gaines. The whipping they delivered the patriots, the same team who made mince meat out of the Ravens soft zone concepts, did not happen by accident.
