Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>*** 2021 Prospect Tracker: Chiefs Interest / Visits / Work Outs ***
Dante84 09:38 AM 02-08-2021
After a hard fought season defending the title, we fell short in the finale due to some critical holes that need to be addressed. Sure, we'll get some guys back at some of these spots, but we absolutely need this draft to be successful if we are to keep our status as a SB favorite in the years ahead.

O-Line, Edge, WR stand out as our biggest needs, among others. Let's hope Veach works his magic again.

This is the 10th year in a row that we will be tracking the college players the Chiefs have publicly or privately expressed interest in leading up to the NFL Draft.

This will be a more difficult challenge given that there will be no combine, only the Senior Bowl, various Pro Days and virtual visits.

Here's how we did in 2020 - Clyde was our only hit, surprisingly.

For those who are new, the way this operates is that we collectively monitor various social media sources, blogs, articles and reports for news of the Chiefs' interest in a certain player. When posted in this thread, I will update the OP to include the player. *Please provide the link to the article, the players name, position and team.

I am going to try to link to player profiles when they exist, courtesy of The Draft Network, other site write up, or their team's website.

Let's meet some of our future Chiefs:

Tape of a 3rd rounder but the workout was dogshit not even worthy of UDFA. Gotta think he gets a shot on the tape, but its going to be late. Could be a gem that just had a bad day at the office.

Yeah, it's the same issue Brevin Jordan has. His pro day workout was not just bad, it was like historically bad.

It speaks to a deeper issue. This pandemic year has allowed prospects to prep for testing like never before and a lot of guys coming off the opt-out have no excuse but to not be in shape, but many are showing up with lack lustre results. These guys canít care to be in shape when all eyes are looking at them -why should organizations trust them to be dependable? It was known that Ford was combative with coaches and teammates in his time at Pitt. Comes off as selfish it seems.

Chief Wire’s final list (published today). Unless I’m blind, I think we’ve got all of these on the list already.

Meh, I rely on everyone else to contribute, so itís the broader team that deserves the credit. I just have fun organizing it all in an easy to read format so I can quick access the info, and I figure others do, too.

Props to the dudes who participate!

Bolton.

That said, each of the interviews revealed that the guys had met or zoomed with our scouts.

Oh well, we'll get them next year when they meet in person.
