*** 2014 Prospects: Chiefs Visits / Met / Work Outs ***
 
Hello, friends; It's that time of year again.

3 years ago, this thread had a few guys that we selected in the draft. 2 years ago, this thread had 4 of our 8 draft picks. Last year we got Kelce, Fisher from the visits we recorded.

Last year, around this time, the big question was the QB. Dorsey and Reid did their homework, and spoke with almost every legitimate candidate. After this, they chose to make the trade for Alex Smith. Conversely, we brought in almost no Safeties or CB's, and ended up picking up a bunch in FA.

This should help us get an idea not only for the draft, but also to get an idea for what positions Dorsey and Reid feel need improvement. It might foretell a trade or FA acquisition.

We can apply that same logic to this year's search. We desperately need a Safety, and we need WR's. I could see us visiting with a bunch of safeties, only to snag a big one via trade or FA. We might not bring in a lot of WR's, and grab a bunch via FA.

This year will allow us to monitor Dorsey and Reid trends and patterns, because we will have two years of data to work off of instead of one.

I am going to try to link to comprehensive player profiles when they exist, courtesy of draftbreakdown.com. For some of the lesser-known guys, it may just be a random video or profile from their team website.

Reminder as to how this works: When you guys see a solid lead on someone we are interested in, post it in here (links, please). Still trying to keep this sucker legit.

So far it looks like we are chatting with a bunch of WR's and DE/OLB types.

Only 2 safeties.

DA_T_84 01-27-2014 05:34 PM

Any E/W Shrine Game updates?

Curious if we have representation up there, either within the Front Office/Scout depts. or media covering it?

EDIT - Well, I guess it already happened, on the 18th. Man, I didn't hear anything about it this year. No info on who we met with, if anyone?

DA_T_84 01-30-2014 11:31 PM

So, I often get bored in the evenings prior to falling asleep, and this is when I find myself watching football tape. I figure I'll start posting my thoughts - by no means to I claim to be an expert or a hopeful amateur scout, but I'll post what I watched. Feel free to agree or disagree, and feel free to post your own observations.
