Brett Veach is only 39 years old and the Kansas City Chiefs are benefiting from that youthful energy. Chiefs coach Andy Reid met with BJ Kissel and said that Veach is putting in long days at the Senior Bowl this week in Mobile, Alabama.
“He goes from 6:30 in the morning until last night 2 in the morning so it’s been a wild ride for him, I know,” Reid said. “I have high expectations for him because I’ve known him for so long but I think the people around him are getting used to the energy level.”
"We're certainly looking for athletic attributes and guys that bring energy, that love to compete."— Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) January 25, 2018

The Senior Bowl is one of the first stops after the season to start the draft process. It takes place in Mobile where the Chiefs entire staff is in town to scout players.
“I have a really, really good staff of scouts,” Veach said. “They can really identify talent. We all speak the same language. This is the first time for this process that we get to sit together as a group and go through the players.”
A 20-hour workday is something. I guess that’s why they pay him the big bucks.
In the past, the Senior Bowl has been a big place for the Chiefs from Eric Fisher’s rise to Dee Ford, the Chiefs have paid attention to the Senior Bowl.
