Chiefs coach Todd Haley was on Sirius NFL Radio last week going through all the Chiefs picks. I noticed he seemed to gush a little extra about second round pick Javier Arenas.

Haley says "there was no one more excited than I was" when the Chiefs were able to select him.

"When you start this process months ago, and going through the scouts reports, I don't know that you can read a better football character side of a report. And this guy has football character. When scouts say he treats everyday and every practice like the Super Bowl, you take notice. Again, you put on the tape and he backs it up. this kid's a player. He's got a chip on his shoulder. He's another guy that's probably been told all along he's too small.

"He found a way to get into a pretty good program there and play pretty good defense and win a national championship. He's a pretty good returner. I think he's the kind of guy you want on your team.

"When his name came off the board, there was no one more excited than I was. He's a defensive version of Dexter McCluster."

High praise from a team that places an extra emphasis on character.

Duh. He's an undersized part-time player whose cieling is to play the slot. That is a decription of both Arenas and McCluster. Arenas is better than a "pretty good" returner, though.

i'm excited about the fact that he may be able to actually time and disguise his blitzes...we haven't had that on defense in a decade.

I think Arenas had something like 20 sacks in his college career. I remember hearing he is a tremendous blitzer. That's an extra plus.

exactly...hopefully, that's because he's able to time and disguise his blitzes before he comes off the corner. kc has been the worst team i've ever seen trying to disguise blitzes the last few years.

Arenas should be a productive blitzer from the corner position, true. So was Benny Sapp, for what its worth.

Most corners aren't on corner blitzes. Corner blitzing is about having the ability to not give anything away to the offense to let them know you are coming. It doesn't seem like such a hard thing to do but some guys have a knack for it and some don't.

You mean doing something other than our past ten years where defensive backs would jump toward the line and then step back and dance around and then jump again and step back all while staring at the quarterback, who was simultaneously pointing at them and audibling to their receiver?

You forgot at the snap being burnt by the receiver because they were jumping towards the line on the wrong rhythm.
