View Full Version : KC showing interest in Jonathan Scott?

From the reports on NFLDraftCountdown it seems that we are taking a very long look at him this week.

From todays report:
http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/features/seniorbowl/reports/south127.html

JonScott is training in Houston and at the Scouting Combine next month he plans to run in the 4.9 range and hopefully get up to 30 reps in the bench press, which would be huge since strength is a big question that scouts have about him. Jon will be seeing time at right tackle as he volunteered to try that side after a couple of other high-profile tackle prospects on his team (who shall remain nameless) indicated they only wanted to play on the left side. Scott will also be long-snapping in the game as he has some experience there and was more than willing to do it. I asked his father Ray about which teams were showing the most interest in his son and he mentioned Kansas City, San Diego and Miami as being the most prominent.


From Wed:

The Kansas City Chiefs couldn't have shown any more interest in Jonathan Scott, cornering him for almost the entire time between the end of practice and when he had to catch his bus. The Chiefs also had three scouts talking to Manny Lawson, four with Pat Watkins, two with Kamerion Wimbley and were seen with Marcus McNeill, Marcedes Lewis, and Mark Anderson as well.

Marcedes Lewis, huh? UCLA TE. Yup, if he's there in the second, Carl's taking him.

Mercedes Lewis could become a very good TE at the next level, but we don't need another TE. I sure hope we go in another direction.

Jon Scott and Marcus McNeill, yep those are the two OTs I thought KC would like

He won't be available in the 2nd, but if he was I'd have no problem taking him. He'd be far and away the BPA at that point.

If we take another TE in the second round, you'll be able to find me in the bell tower.

And why the hell are we looking at Manny Lawson, Mark Anderson, and Kamerion Wimbley?

It sounds like KC might go 3-4 base defense

I'm extremely wary of Texas tackles, especially after the report said he looks soft this week. The last Texas tackle who went high is looking real nice up there in Buffalo.......

Like I said. Why the f*ck are we looking at these guys?

If he were the size of Davis and Williams I would have more concern. Those two really are not really enough for me to write of UT tackles. Williams seems to be frequently injured as well.

Yea, UT tackles are like Penn State RBs... They all suck :rolleyes:

I really hope they don't think Sims is fine as a NT.

Agreed. I think a switch to 3-4 would be more because its trendy than it making sense. We would basically have to scrap our line and start over.

We would basically have to scrap our line and start over.Not only do we have to scrap our line (and the one bright spot in Allen), I'm not sure we'd take full advantage of our current LBs. Not many of them are suited to play a 3-4 OLB. So we have Mitchell who's just come into his own, DJ who has the sky as the limit, Fox and Griffin as promising up and comers, and a broke down Bell. Not to mention Barber, Scanlon, and Grigsby. All competing for two ILB spots.

It just doesn't make sense. People see all our LBs and think "hey, we can get 4 of them on the field in a 3-4". But the reality is, we'd be rendering a lot of these guys useless.

Another possible theory is KC are looking for more Gary Stills type ST players

I hope you're right, Tribal.

Because I agree with jsp.

If Scott shows he wants to work I have no issue with him, the long snapping would be a big bonus to have a lineman who can do it.

I don't like this idea of looking at all these "tweeners" like Lawson and Wimbley. The only explanation I can even remotely give is they wanna use one of them like they used Derrick Thomas but those guys aren't even remotely that talented.

Of course looking at these guys could simply be the Chiefs seeing what Merriman did and wanting a guy like that on their roster.
