2022 Recap
In our 5th straight home AFC Championship game, we avenged the '22 loss to the Bengals and went to our 3rd Super Bowl in 4 years, winning the whole damned thing.

It was a "re-tooling" year, stemming from Veach's decision to cut ties with long time starters like Tyrann Matheiu, Charvarius Ward, Daniel Sorenson, and most notably, Tyreek Hill. The talking heads wrote us off before the season began when the rest of the AFC West spent half a billion dollars to take us down, but we didn't write back.

Instead, Veach and co put on an elite performance in the offseason, bringing in some notable FA's (Reid, Dunlap, JJSS, MVS) and absolutely crushing the draft. Of our 10 picks, 9 played significant snaps and there was extreme value found late in the draft. Additionally, there was a mid-season move to acquire Kadarius Toney and it paid off when it counted most.

Two years ago, Veach attacked the OL in the offseason with incredible results. Last year, he attacked the secondary and infused it with youth, setting that position group up for years. This year, there's an opportunity to overhaul both the DLine and the WR rooms.

In addition to the Draft & FA decisions, there are some contract decisions to be made on our own high-impact players, like OBJ, Chris Jones, Sneed, and Gay.

This is the 12th 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.

No dancing around it - last year, this thread has a poor showing, but not for lack of trying. Cards were held tightly to the vest, as many of the draft picks revealed that they had, in fact, met with the Chiefs. It was just never reported. The only "hit" was a PS QB in Chris Oladokun, who was drafted by the Steelers and snagged after final cuts.

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 sites' write ups, or their team's website.

Let's meet some of our future Chiefs:

Yes. Definitely feels like things are leveling back to normal, may have been the Covid fog from 20, 21 & 22, but who knows?

Seems like a lot more sources are delivering the updates, too. Lots of local beatwriters and random people in the industry contributing. Lots of college reporters as well.

Heck of a Pro Day for WKU CB Kahlef Hailassie (6002 // 195 // 32 1/4 arm).

A sleeper in a talented CB class.

SS: 4.06 👀
3-cone: 6.68 👀

Has Top 30 visits scheduled with the Chiefs and Bengals.

Tribe already got him, but here’s another tweet about it:

#Chiefs scheduled a Top 30 visit with Western Kentucky CB Kahlef Hailassie (per @_RyanFowler_ )

The former Oregon CB has earned All-C-USA honors over the last 2 yrs, nabbing 4 INTs like this game-sealing pick last season

Danced on UAB's grave, he's got the appropriate CB swag

The #Chiefs had an intriguing offensive line prospect in for a top-30 visit recently, per report.

Very interesting OL for day 3. Would love to get a guy like this who can play seemingly any position on the interior.

Tennessee offensive lineman Jerome Carvin said Titans, Chiefs and Bills have shown the most interest among several teams.

Carvin has value as a late-round pick because of his versatility.

He has started at both guard spots and center. Also, extremely smart player.

This Jake Witt kid from Northern Michigan might be an interesting pick in the late 5th, early 6th for the OT position.

Compared to official NFL Scouting Combine records for offensive players, here’s how Witt’s scored — first place in the broad jump with a leap of 10 feet, 3 inches, beating the all-time record; tied for both first place and the all-time record in the vertical jump with that leap coming in at 37 inches; first place in the 40-yard dash in 4.89 seconds; and tied for second place in the 10-yard split in 1.71 seconds.
His arm length was 33.5.

Use the first four or five picks on defensive linemen and receivers. Go with Niang and Taylor this year and coach this kid up. Then maybe the next year put Witt at LT and Taylor at RT with Niang as the swing T.

Kind of interesting, I've seen him suggested as a UDFA or 7th rounder. I might use a 7th on him and stash him on the PS. He'll need a lot of work, still needs to gain a fair amount of weight. But definitely intriguing. It's a shame he's not a year younger.
