Coming off his third year as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, former Carman-Ainsworth standout Brandon Carr was prepared for this moment. The cornerback has been keeping a watchful eye on the situation.
“I’m on it every day,” Carr said of the lockout. “Some days are better than others but I have faith in our representatives and in our player’s union that they’re going to get the deal done and finish this up.
The Chiefs are looking at two intriguing skill-position players. They are planning to work out Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Miami receiver Leonard Hankerson.
Kaepernick, who is also working out for Denver, is likely going to be taken in the second or third round. Kansas City is also working out TCU quarterback Andy Dalton. The team is looking for an upgrade from Brodie Croyle at backup quarterback. With needs for a pass-rusher and a perhaps a tackle, the Chiefs could give Dwayne Bowe some help and take Hankerson. He is rising up draft boards and he could be tempting at No. 21.
