Murray was a waste of a pick. Unless Daniel gets cut, he won't be able to win the #2 spot.

Would have rather had Abbrederis, Carrethers, or Gaines. They'd at least be able to push for some playing time in year 1. Abbrederis as a slot receiver, Gaines as a slot corner/special teamer, and Carrethers in rotation to give Poe some rest.

$3.8 million this year and $4 million next year or a QB with just as much talent on a rookie contract?

What you sound like.

QBs are 99% of the time never wasted picks purely due to positional importance. If you're not re-investing in fresh arms, new prospects, and better competition every 1-2 years, then you are clearly underestimating the position's value and aren't trying hard enough.

Murray is better than most QBs you can get in the 5th round in most years. If you look at that as a wasted draft pick, you're a flaming AIDS monster and should kill yourself.

Murray threw 4 INTs against 2 drafted guys(Ford & Gaines) and a bunch of UDFAs. Franchise QB!

At best, he'll replace Daniel in 2015-16.

Murray was also one of the best SEC QB's number wise and played well against that conference.

I don't think that many people are saying he's the future at QB, but I think he's a very nice option as a backup.

Your new name is Carl Peterson.

You don't draft QBs because they're "wasted draft picks."

I really can't ****ing help you if you're going to be this idiotic, dude.

I suppose Aaron Rodgers was a wasted draft pick as well. That guy didn't do shit to oust Brett Favre and his expensive contract for 3 goddamn seasons.

Observations from Chiefs rookie minicamp
by Herbie Teope

The Chiefs on Saturday kicked off the first day of a three-day rookie minicamp at the team’s training facility with 65 participants.

Among the group of players included all six members of the 2014 draft class, 11 undrafted free agent signings and 35 invited for a tryout.

Outside of some players who were on the Chiefs practice squad last season, rookie minicamp affords numerous players the opportunity to get introduced to the NFL.

Saturday also provided the chance to participate in drills, a lot of it coming on 11-on-11 competition, under the watchful eyes of an NFL coaching staff.

“It’s the first time they’ve put on a helmet here,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “The first time they’ve tried this practice tempo here, the first time they’ve had offense versus defense, we haven’t been able to do that up to this point. I was happy with what I saw on both sides of the ball.”

Meanwhile, it’s important to temper enthusiasm when it comes to minicamp because players are in shorts and helmets, and not full pads.

Still, there was plenty to take away from Saturday, including:

No limitations.

So much for concerns over a surgically repaired knee.

Quarterback Aaron Murray, who returns from an ACL injury suffered in late November 2013, participated in the entire afternoon practice, a session lasting more than two hours.

“We’re keeping a close eye on him,” Reid said, “(Chiefs head athletic trainer) Rick (Burkholder) is keeping a close eye. He’s done everything up to this point. He went through it today, and he’ll keep getting stronger as he goes. This was good because this was the first time there’s a pass rush on him, so he had to move around a little bit.”

For his part, Murray appeared pleased of what he was able to do on the field.

“The knee’s great,” Murray said. “It feels awesome. The best thing is there’s no second thought. There’s no while I’m back there in my drop, moving around the pocket, my rollouts, there’s no, ‘Be careful of the knee. Don’t step into a throw.’ It’s all just go out there and play and have fun and execute the play. It feels awesome. It’s doing extremely well right now.”

Murray threw four interceptions, two coming off tipped passes, during 11-on-drills. But for the most part looked fine, even tucking the ball and running after being flushed out of the pocket.

Also of note, Murray looked good moving around when considering he underwent knee surgery on Nov. 25, just six months ago.

Dee Ford announces presence. The team’s first-round pick (23rd overall) signed his contract Saturday, and then promptly turned in an interception off quarterback Aaron Murray on the first play of 11-on-11 drills.

“The biggest question is can I drop in coverage,” Ford said. “I think I answered that question. It was great teamwork, got batted the ball to me. I just reacted off of that. It was fun.”

Ford, who wore No. 55 instead of No. 90, later beat sixth-round pick offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif off the edge with a pretty swim move.

The No. 55 is symbolic because it’s the number Chiefs great and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas wore at the University of Alabama.

“I’m not trying to be Derrick Thomas,” Ford said. “But he’s a guy that definitely inspired me. The opportunity presented itself, so I took it.”

Former Missouri star shines.
Again, it’s important to not get too caught up in what’s done in shorts and helmet.

But it’s also hard not to ignore when a player stands out based on what he does on the field. One such player was wide receiver Jerrell Jackson, who played collegiately at Missouri.

Jackson made some nice catches in traffic, including a leaping sideline grab down the field over a defender.

Strong safety makes plays.

Another player who made it hard for observers to ignore was former Brigham Young University standout, strong safety Daniel Sorensen.

Sorensen, who measures 6-foot-2, 208 pounds, recorded two interceptions off quarterback Aaron Murray, one coming on a tipped pass down the field and the other in traffic in the middle of the field.

On the right.
The Chiefs’ sixth-round picks, offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and guard Zach Fulton, both spent time on the right side of the offensive line during 11-on-11 drills.

Duvernay-Tardif lined up at right tackle, with Fulton at right guard.

Dressler impressed.

Is it too early to declare that Canadian Football League import, wide receiver Weston Dressler, is legit?

OK, perhaps it’s way too early to declare that because once again, the team is in shorts and helmet. See a theme here when it comes to tempering enthusiasm?

Nevertheless, Dressler looked pretty good coming out of his breaks and catching the ball with his hands. He also impressed during 11-on-11 drills by getting behind third-round pick cornerback Phillip Gaines, who runs a 4.38 40-yard dash, on a deep route.

Dressler wore jersey No. 13 as a request he made of the Chiefs when he left the CFL to pay respect to the Saskatchewan Roughriders fans.

Speaking of speed.
Running back/specialist De’Anthony Thomas has quite the burst once the ball is in his hands.

“I just feel like I’m a playmaker,” Thomas said. “Wherever coach puts me on the field, I’m going to help this team get to the promise land.”

On one play during 11-on-11 drills, Thomas caught the ball out of the backfield only to have linebacker Ben Johnson, one of the team’s undrafted free agent signing, come up to meet him in the open field.

Johnson appeared to have the angle, but Thomas did a juke move and sprinted away from the linebacker to the sideline.

The team’s fourth-round pick also showed good hands. During warm-ups, Thomas snatched a poorly thrown ball at his knee with just his right hand and didn’t lose stride.

UDFA free agent wide receivers.

The Chiefs didn’t select a wide receiver during the draft, but signed two intriguing options in Darryl Surgent of Louisiana-Lafayette and Albert Wilson of Georgia State.

Both players made the most of their chances during 11-on-11 drills. Wilson, in particular, looked very quick coming off the line of scrimmage.

As to what Surgent and Wilson need to do to boost their chances of having a shot at the roster?

“They need opportunities,” Reid said, “just more and more and more.”

Other signal callers
.
Aaron Murray wasn’t the only rookie quarterback on the field, as Jonathan Jennings of Saginaw State and Terrance Owens of Toledo were invited for tryouts.

Jennings has a strong arm, but at times struggled with accuracy during 11-on-11 drills. Owens, a southpaw, also has a nice arm, but has a long winding motion before releasing the ball.

Both face a steep challenge when considering the Chiefs already have Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray and Murray.

Familiar faces.
Some members of the 2013 Chiefs practice squad were present Saturday, including safety Malcolm Bronson, offensive tackle Chandler Burden, wide receiver Frankie Hammond, tight end Demetrius Harris, cornerback Vernon Kearney and wide receiver Fred Williams.

Harris came on strong towards the end of the practice with a nice catch after having some passes go through his hands.

Bronson, an All-American at McNeese State, spent time at free safety whenever he was on the field.

Despite recent injury, Chiefs not treating rookie QB Aaron Murray with kid gloves
By TEREZ A. PAYLOR
The Kansas City Star

Despite suffering a torn ACL in his left knee a little more than six months ago, fifth-round quarterback Aaron Murray was not limited in drills Saturday.

Murray, who is listed at 6 feet 1 and 207 pounds, wore a large brace on the knee and proceeded to take a number of snaps and make a number of throws during team and individual drills.

“We’ve been keeping a close eye on it,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “He’s done everything up to this point — he went through today’s work and he’ll keep getting stronger as he goes.”

Reid said Saturday’s practice benefitted Murray because it’s the first time he’s faced a pass rush, limited as it might have been (they practiced in helmets and shorts).

“He had to move around a little bit, you got to see his movement ability,” Reid said. “You’ve got to do that in the National Football League, you’ve got to do it out here so he did that and he did some nice things.”

As a senior at Georgia, Murray completed 225 of 347 passes for 3,075 yards with 26 touchdowns and only nine interceptions before his season ended Nov. 22 against Kentucky. Murray said he had surgery on the knee three days later and vowed to be healthy enough to participate in his pro day in April, which he was.

“The knee is great, it feels awesome,” Murray said. “The best thing is there’s no second thought ... there’s no ‘be careful of the knee, don’t step into the throw.’ It’s all just go out there and play and have fun and execute the play.”

Murray looked fairly nimble on Saturday; he scrambled to avoid the rush on one occasion and generally seemed unencumbered. He did toss four interceptions — including two on deflections — but he was generally the most accurate of the three quarterbacks in attendance, as Toledo’s Terrance Owens and Saginaw Valley State’s Jonathon Jennings also struggled to find the strike zone.

Reid, of course, was not concerned by interceptions that came in the first non-padded practice of the year.

“There’s a little bit of a rush in his face, he’s moving and he’s got new receivers and a bunch of different things that go into that,” Reid said. “That’s a tough thing ”

Regardless, Murray was noticeably enthusiastic about his first day of practice.

“It’s a nice mental hurdle to get over, knowing I just have to trust it,” Murray said of his knee. “I can’t worry about what’s going on in front of me.”

Thomas chooses jersey number


After two weeks of limbo, former Oregon star De’Anthony Thomas — the Chiefs’ fourth-round pick — has finally been issued a jersey number.

“When I arrived (Friday), No. 1 was in my locker,” Thomas said. “I’ll just establish the number and keep working and keep contributing to this team.”

However, it seems unlikely that will be Thomas’ number come the regular season. Thomas, who is 5 feet 9 and 174 pounds, is listed as a running back on the team’s official roster, and the NFL requires running backs to wear numbers between 20 and 49 by the regular season. The league makes exceptions before that, due to the high number of players on each roster, but as the season draws nearer, more players get cut and thus, more numbers become available.

Of greater concern to the Chiefs is that Thomas won’t be able to remain in Kansas City after the three-day minicamp. The NFL prohibits players from working out with their new teams until they’ve completed their college’s academic calendar is complete, and the final exams for Oregon — which runs on the quarter system — won’t be complete until June 13.

That means Thomas miss most of the next few weeks while his new teammates begin OTAs.

“He has to go back (to Oregon),” Reid said, “so the next time he’ll be with us is that last mandatory minicamp (on June 17-19).”

Reid, however, said Thomas, who has also missed the last two weeks of organized workouts, and running-backs coach Eric Bieniemy have been working closely every day.

“He was able to do everything today, and he’s actually holding on to what we’ve given him pretty good,” Reid said.

Thomas spent most of his time at running back on Saturday, but he did occasionally line up as a slot receiver, a position that perhaps best fits a player of size and also happens to be a need, as last year’s starter, Dexter McCluster signed with Tennessee this offseason after a career season.

“You saw, we had him all over the place,” Reid said, “so that’s what we’re gonna do with him. (Spread Game Analyst) coach Brad (Childress) and Eric are kinda working with him — Brad’s doing a little bit with spread stuff and Eric does stuff with him from the backfield and a couple of split out things.”

Others present


A few players who participated on the practice squad last season also participated in the camp Saturday, including cornerback Vernon Kearney, safety Malcolm Bronson, tight end Demetrius Harris, tackle Chandler Burden, receiver Fred Williams and receiver Frankie Hammond.
