Crennel forms connection with RG3 in Combine interview

The Chiefs also met with Stanford QB Andrew Luck and Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel could have talked to Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III for hours Friday night, but the air horn at the Crowne Plaza Hotel blared after just 15 minutes. The Chiefs time with the most captivating player at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine had expired.

RG3 was off to visit with Cleveland.

After Griffin exited the Chiefs interview room, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck walked through the door. After Luck’s 15 minutes came to an end, Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill sat across the table from Crennel and GM Scott Pioli.

No doubt, the Chiefs made their way through the quarterback circuit Friday night.

“Generally, when you talk to top-notch quarterbacks you’re impressed with the interview,” said Crennel. “We had three top-notch quarterbacks in there and all three of those guys were very impressive in their interviews.”

But something was different with RG3. He and Crennel formed a connection based of their upbringing in military families.

Crennel grew up the son of an Army sergeant. Griffin often credits his on-field success to the influence of his retired Army parents.

“He’s the type of person that you’d like to go and get,” Crennel said. “Not only was he sharp in football, but he was sharp about life. And because he was an Army brat and I was an Army brat, there is a special connection there. I’m going to give him a little more headway than the other guys just because of that.”

When discussing Griffin’s physical attributes, Crennel is equally as impressed.

“I’ve seen enough of him,” Crennel said. “He has a tremendously strong arm, tremendously fast feet and good speed, and it looks like he makes good decisions. He puts the ball where the receivers have a chance to make a play. And he’s not always looking to run. He’s looking to throw, but will run when he has to.

“He is a winner and he’s won. When you win, particularly at that position, it says something about you and your ability.”

The likelihood of Griffin falling to the Chiefs at the 11th overall pick is extremely low, but the team is doing its homework anyway.

As an example, Crennel referenced Brady Quinn’s unexpected freefall in 2007 and the Browns decision to trade-up for the former Notre Dame quarterback with the 22nd overall pick.

“In this business you always talk to everybody, because you never know what is going to happen or how things are going to develop,” Crennel said.

But what about the possibly of the Chiefs making a bold draft day move to trade-up and select Griffin this April?

“I don’t have to talk Scott into it because he was equally impressed with the young man as I was,” Crennel said as he laughed.

If anything, Crennel certainly knows how to keep the off-season interesting.

This is true. However, we have a multitude of chips the rams could be interested in and their value cannot be discounted.

Bowe or Carr can be franchised. I think I would rather tie up Carr to a long-term deal and franchise Carr and ship him out. Either would be appealing to the Rams.

Albert and Dorsey are both in contract years and should both also be of interest to the Rams.

If the Rams value Kendall Wright as much as I've read, they may also be able to trade back to 11 and take him there.

Agreed.

I like Griffin a lot and have for awhile now - but he can fail. He's not Andrew Luck. He's not Payton Manning (hell, he's not Eli Manning). In fact, he's probably not even quite as sure a thing as Ryan was. He reminds me a little of Matt Stafford in that he has the potential to go boom or bust in a very big way.

I'd love to see us go after him, but nobody is giving 4 1st rounders for him and it's doubtful he costs 3.

2 firsts and a 2nd is probably about right, maybe another 3rd in there this year or next. Cleveland would probably be able to get him for their 4 and 21 and for us to match that will probably require the extra 2nd and maybe a lil extra. And who knows? Cleveland isn't the brightest organization - maybe they'll sit the bidding out or refuse to kick in that 1st. In which case, the Chiefs are sitting very nicely.

The kid's ceiling is unmatched, but I don't think you're likely to see many GMs give up entire drafts for the guy when there's a legitimate risk of failure with him.

I dont think Holmgren is trading two first rounders to move from 4 to 2.

In fact, I have my doubts they would even take him at 4...but I think somebody moves up in front of them to take him.

If he makes it past to 4, he is fair game for us to trade up for because according to the draft value chart it would only take a second rounder to move from 11 to 4.

I guess it all depends on how much Holmgren likes him and how much other teams really are willing to spend to move up to take the kid.

I'm not convinced he is gonna go before the 4th pick.

Are you serious? Holmgren is a qb guru and a scary judge of talent. Shurmur is a qb coach. They will aggressively go after a qb and they are smart enough to know it has to be RGIII.

If the Chiefs make a move to improve the QB position, Pioli had done an outstanding job since taking over for the Chiefs. He's made 2 real mistakes ... hiring Todd "gunther" Haley and not replacing Cassel like he did Vrabel.

Cassel/Vrabel were both quality transition guys. We used Vrabel for awhile to change the culture etc and then moved on ... perfect. We haven't moved on from Cassel yet.

Maybe the Dolphins are one of those teams. Maybe the Redskins. Maybe the Browns. Maybe another team -- one that nobody is talking about -- will unexpectedly get into the mix and only drive up the price even more. Whatever the case, the lesson from this weekend became clear every time the spotlight panned Griffin's direction:

He has every look of being the real deal.

"You only have 15 minutes to talk to guys and that goes pretty quickly when you're talking to the entertaining young man like he is," said Browns coach Romeo Crennel, who met with him Friday. "He's very sharp. He's well thought out. He gives great answers. We could have talked to him for an hour.

"But in the 15 minutes he had, we came away very impressed with him."

Hiring Haley was not a mistake. Wanting to fire Haley the day after a playoff game in the second year... Mistake
If the rumors are true that he was sabotaging Haley from that day forward was a mistake.
Hiring Romeo and daboll directly from the tree... Remains to be seen, but in my opinion, was a big mistake.
Piolis horrific publicity management (especially during a time when we had key coaching decisions to make and we now have to rehire a college scouting director?). Horrible mistake.
Piolis decision to freeze out peterson's scouts in the 2009 draft. Horrible mistake.
If it's true that he was relentlessly micromanaging coaches including Haley? Huge mistake.
Deciding to not do one damn thing to address significant depth issues, especially a quarterback and tackle? Embarrassingly big mistake
Forcing a 3-4 then, in three years, ignoring the most important position on the field? Huge mistake


I've complimented pioli on a lot of his moves so I'm not a hater. Like I've said before he has done a lot of great things for the chiefs but those things are undermined by really stupid decisions like the ones you and I mentioned above.
