The Kansas City Chiefs, with the No. 11 pick in the first round, sent the largest contingent to Iowa City, with general manager Scott Pioli, head coach Romeo Crennel, offensive line coach Jack Bicknell, wide receivers coach Nick Sirianni, and scout Terry Delp. If Reiff is still on the board in the first round April 26, the Chiefs will likely pounce, but most mock drafts have the 6-foot-6, 300-pound native of Parkston, S.D., going four picks earlier to Jacksonville.
“One of the things about Iowa football is that the players who come here are well-coached,” Crennel said. “They’re technique-sound, they play hard, try hard, they’re competitive, and we know that. Last year there were a few more defensive (Hawkeyes) coming out, this year a few more offensive guys are coming out. We know that you’re going to get fundamentally-sound guys who are very competitive and who give you a good day’s work.”
