Andy Tuitele, an agent for Sports Management Worldwide (SMWW) tweeted earlier this morning that one of the firm’s clients, Wyoming WR David Leonard, would be soon working out privately for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Congrats to our client David Leonard for getting an Invite to NFL Team KC Chiefs!
Leonard is another bargain basement receiving option for the Chiefs. He is not being projected to be drafted by NFL Draft Scout. He is listed at 6-4, 203 lbs.
Leonard was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine and ran a 4.64 and 4.55 40 at Wyoming’s Pro Day.
There isn’t much out there on Leonard. He caught 47 balls for 452 yards and three touchdowns in 2010. His career numbers are 153 receptions for 1,478 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Leonard is from Overland Park so maybe the Chiefs were just bored and figured they’d give him a look. According to our Draft Interests page, Leonard is only the second WR the Chiefs have had in for a private workout (that we know of), the other being Ohio WR Terrence MCrae. McCrae is projected to go in the 7th round or not at all.
Just because the Chiefs only appear to be working out receivers in the back end of the draft doesn’t mean they won’t take one in the front end. Keep in mind that the Chiefs’ scouts have been working all year and may have seen all they need to see of the top WR’s in this year’s draft. The private workouts may mainly for guys they haven’t gotten to see a lot of or want to see a bit more of. While I don’t think we should put too much stock in individual players that are brought in for private workouts, I think we should pay close attention to what positions the players that come in are projected to play. This will likely give us a clue as to which positions the Chiefs are targeting or see as needs.
Here is the current breakdown:
OLB: 3 (2 first round prospects)
OL: 2 (1 G/C, 1 T)
DT/DE: 1 (Wilkerson, 1st round prospect)
