The Kansas City Chiefs continued doing their due diligence ahead of the 2013 NFL Draft today when they attended the Pro Day for Oregon Safety John Boyett.
From the Napa Valley Register:
Officials from the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns and New York Giants were on the field to check out Boyett, one of the top defensive backs in Oregon history, and meet with him. They wanted to see what kind of range he has and his ball skills.
“I was very happy just to come out here and just be able to run around a little bit, let alone impress the teams the way I did,” said Boyett, a former Napa High School two-way star, who had had his jersey No. 12 retired in October by the school. “They were very impressed with how fast I ran for only being a little over five months on a six-month recovery. In a month I’ll be faster and better than I am right now.”
The Chiefs have been scouting the Oregon Ducks pretty closely this offseason. Boyett projects to be a free safety in the NFL. KC has been looking at a few players at this position which could indicate that the new regime is not sold on Kendrick Lewis. Lewis has been good and bad at times on the field but he has also had a nagging shoulder injury.
Boyett missed most of last season with an injury.
