Mr. Kotter
05-01-2006, 12:50 AM
Height: 6-3 1/4 | Weight: 205 | 40-Time: 4.46

Strengths:
Has excellent size with a solid frame and can still get bigger...An extraordinarily smooth and natural athlete...Has pretty good timed speed...Tremendous leaper with outstanding ball skills...Hands are above average...Still has a lot of upside.

Weaknesses:
An underachiever who doesn't play up to his potential...Is not very tough or physical...Was never very productive throughout his career...Basically a one-dimensional deep threat and doesn't work the middle much...Too overconfident.

Notes:
Played quarterback in high school and contributed as a true freshman...Intriguing prospect who would seem to have all the physical tools you look for...Some team could take a chance on him late and hope they can finally get him to break out.

Chiefs | Team has not ruled out T. Law
Mon, 1 May 2006 00:04:59 -0700

Doug Tucker, of the Associated Press, reports the Kansas City Chiefs have not ruled out bringing in free agent CB Ty Law (Jets) to play cornerback. General manager Carl Peterson said, "We've never excluded the possibility of Ty Law. We brought him in last year and looked at him. Certainly, our head coach knows a lot about him. We'll go ahead and look at all opportunities to improve our football team. And again, there is something called the (salary) cap and cash that has to make sense, too."

Hannon could be a sleeper. Slaughter could make the team FBs from Auburn are usually very good blockers.

Capital One Player Profile
Auburn FB Jake Slaughter
Slaughter will never run for 1,000 yards in a season, but he will be the lead blocker for plenty of 1,000-yard backs. In fact, the former linebacker already has for the Tigers. Slaughterís role increased during last yearís perfect season as he consistently sprung open gaping holes for eventual first-round draft choices, Ronnie Brown and Carnell Williams. And this fall, the senior was one of the unheralded cogs in an Auburn running game that featured first-year starter Kenny Irons, who led the SEC in rushing. Every program has a dozen or so Slaughters, faceless, nameless, selfless players that are as irreplaceable as they are anonymous. No one outside the Plains of Auburn could identify No. 44 in a lineup, but subtract him from the offense, and things just wouldnít click as smoothly. Even as a 160-pound teen, Slaughter craved contact and dreamt of playing major college football. Nearly 85 pounds and five years later, heís recognized by NFL scouts as one of the most physical and technically sound blocking backs in the country, and appreciated by every Tiger seeking a sliver of daylight or an extra second of pass protection. Since switching to offense in 2003, he has earned eight carries, a level of production that wonít ramp up anytime soon. Thatís just fine with Slaughter. Like a pulling guard, heís content just to be dishing out punishment if it means Auburnís winning and one of his teammates is piling up big numbers.

gotta admit ... this is one change

under vermeil we seemed to wait a week before signing undrafted free agents. Which pretty much stripped down our choices.

this year we are jumping right in there :clap:

this year we are jumping right in there :clap:The cool thing is, if utilized properly, undrafted free agents are basically like extra late-round picks. It was always so frustrating to see us sit on our thumbs and settle for fodder and fodder alone while other teams were out there looking for potential gems.

Hold it a second. Have the Chiefs ever signed this many UDFAs? Does anyone recall?

Is this symptomatic of a team that is trying to get young fast?

The Chiefs always sign a good group of UFA for camp fodder, cause you have to have the numbers to be able to get through the plays you want.

I just don't remember them signing this many, Mr. morphius.

Then again, I can't remember where I put my keys either.

We have signed a lot at least the last few years, though many of them were never even given an oppertunity. With a coach that was formely a UFA, there is a chance that some of these will get more of a shot then under the Veteren Vermeil...
