Andy Reid shines light on how Chiefs evaluate players at camp

Every single moment you see (and don’t see) in St. Joseph is analyzed by Reid and his staff

Training camp began this past Monday, which started the clock. The Kansas City Chiefs now have until September 1 to determine which of the 90 players end up on the first version of the 53-man roster.

Every wonder how head coach Andy Reid, general manager Brett Veach and the rest of the staff come up with the final roster?

Reid shined some light on the Chiefs’ process on Saturday after practice.

“You evaluate everything,” Reid said. “You look at all 120 plays here.”

After watching the film, Reid and his coaching staff give each player a grade.

“Those guys that are participating in the practice, everyone has a grade at the end of the day,” he added. “We evaluate it, we meet as a staff, as a personnel group, we sit in there at night and grind over it and then at the end of this thing, we do the same thing.”

How the Chiefs perform in their four preseason games also comes into play.

“We also put into the equation the games that we play,” Reid said. “It’s all part of it. We do everything from the walkthrough on—these guys get a grade.”

There is no wasted time in St. Joseph.
