Q: What are your thoughts about being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs?

McBRIDE: 的知 extremely pleased. I知 happy and I知 speechless. I知 so excited.

Q: Did you have any idea you would get picked at this point in the draft?

McBRIDE: 的 had a good feeling deep down that I was going to be (drafted) somewhere in that range, but I didn稚 know. I could have told you it was a possibility, but I didn稚 really know.

Q: How did your visit to Kansas City go a couple weeks ago?

McBRIDE: 的t went extremely well. I got a chance to meet a lot of people and that went extremely well. I also have two teammates playing there (WR Chris Hannon and P Dustin Colquitt), so I知 happy about it.

Q: In college you played inside and outside, where do you fit the best with the Chiefs?

McBRIDE: 典o be honest I don稚 even know. I don稚 think I really got the chance to excel at each position the way I know I could. Just off of what I was doing at Tennessee going back and forth so I don稚 think I excelled. My comfort zone right now I壇 say is defensive tackle, but I think in the long run I値l be a better defensive end.

Q: Did you follow the Chiefs growing up?

McBRIDE: 的 always liked their uniforms to be honest. When I was in college, one of their offensive linemen reminded me of my roommate. That was really the only thing I followed about them.

Q: Why do you think your coaches called you the most valuable lineman?

McBRIDE: 的 think it痴 because I知 hard working and my dedication and the type of person I am. I知 relentless and I think that痴 where a lot of that comes from.

Q: You started 17 games in college, do you think you池e ready for the NFL?

McBRIDE: 的知 going to be ready for it. The coaches did a great job so I know I値l be ready.

Q: What did you and Gunther Cunningham talk about on your visit to Kansas City?

McBRIDE: 展e just talked about the scheme. He wanted to pick my brain to see if I knew the defense and how well I can learn. That was the main thing. I believe he know I was a player on the defensive side of the ball and he wanted to see how well I learned and how well I could grasp the defense.

I'm hoping he's 'relentless' in the Hali mold and not the Hicks mold.

I think he will be good in the rotation and will get a lot of playing time with JA out the 1st quarter of the season. And he likes the uniform!

I'm beginning to think that TW doesn't like this draft so far.

Turk with his motor next to Wilkinson who thankfully has a motor next to Boone next to Tamba could be good

Now adding Tank Tyler makes the Turk pick even better!!

I like the Turk McBride pick.

Fascinating insight, care to say why you like that pick? I mean, as much as you had to follow the SEC, surely you saw the guy play yes?

High-motor, high-effort guy who hasn't reached his full potential yet, meaning he should improve. Good size in height, a little light for DT but playing next to Tank Tyler should help that. Also versatile to play both DT & DE.

What else do you want me to say? When I watched the Vols games I heard his name called often and he was involved in many stops.

I was just reading Clark Judge's defensive tackle analysis, and I found out that McBride was 1st team SEC last year. Didn't know that.

Im extremely pissed off we drafted this guy, once again KC shows their fans that they absolutely refuse to draft any quality players in the 2nd round.

I'm always good with drafting high-effort football players from the SEC.
