Chiefs

Chiefs GM John Dorsey explained their approach towards developing raw NFL prospects.

“I think what they have is they have a degree of athleticism that you look for in that particular position,” Dorsey said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. “And those were very unique traits. We have coaches that can develop these. And I think what you’re doing is you’re going into (offseason practice) and training camp now, and you’re trying to see if there’s a steady degree of improvement as we move along here.

“It’s a chance. You may be able to hit one. We’ll just see what happens as they develop. I said, ‘Why not take a shot and see where these guys stand?’ I’m kind of curious to see, once they get into (offseason practice), how they progress.
