Chiefs GM John Dorsey referred to this group of players as the best local pro day he’s had from a talent standpoint in the five years he’s been in Kansas City.

“The three closest Division 1 football teams across your area that are assigned to you, you can have them come in and work out,” Dorsey said. “That’s Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri—a bigger pool, which is awesome for us.”

Dorsey added that the workout session will result in them going back and doing some more work on a few of these players.

“It has enhanced [some player evaluations],” Dorsey said. “I think there are two or three guys here who I had known about, but by the time they left here, I was actually sharing this with Bob Sutton, I’m going, ‘Hm, we have to go back and do some research.’

Kansas State DE/OLB Jordan Willis is the most notable of this group. We have him being selected by the Panthers in the Second Round of 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
