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.


Overview
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:

Oregon EDGE DJ Johnson had a formal interview with the #Chiefs at the combine.

Ran a 4.49s official 40-yard dash and 1.59s 10-yard split at 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds (both fourth among EDGE rushers). Intriguing prospect w/ six sacks for the Ducks last season.

This is just a question and not meant to derail the thread. I really don't know much about this topic and how the NFL works.

What is the difference between a formal interview and meeting with a team/player?
Is there a limit how many players a team can meet/formally interview?

Good questions. I do think formal interviews and visits (player comes to team facility) have caps on them, but I don’t know what the numbers are.

Informal meetings I imagine are where scouts or team personnel chat with them and/or their agents during the senior bowl, shine bowl, HBCU bowl, pro day, combine in more of like what we would compare to a phone-screen in the corporate world. I’m just guessing here though.

Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt said he has met with the #Chiefs - adding he watched film with Andy Reid.

When asked about potentially playing with @PatrickMahomes, he said “who wouldn’t want to catch passes from him.”

He smiled throughout the answer. pic.twitter.com/SmV3WdhLxz
