Coffee with the Chiefs – Scouts talk


Good morning, Addicts! It’s HUMP DAYYYYYYYY.

The Kansas City Chiefs are likely working out somewhere, getting ready to take on the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders come the NFL regular season. For now, they are out of sight but certainly not out of mind here at Arrowhead Addict.

Kansas City has some questions that need answering, especially on the depth chart at wide receiver. The Chiefs have a stud in Jeremy Maclin but not much else in the way of proven commodities behind him. At this juncture, it appears the battle for the No. 2 spot is between Chris Conley, Rod Streater and Albert Wilson.

Here is the news you need to know…

What scouts said about Demarcus Robinson before the draftJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"The Chiefs scouts did a bunch of work on him and after the draft they spoked to the media and said that they were surprised he was still there in the fourth. Note that the failed drug tests were in his freshman year and he’s done some work since then to get over that problem."

"The only running back I could see them trading right now is Knile Davis. Davis is a good kick returner who wants to get more carries and opportunities as a runner. He got some first-team reps throughout OTAs this year but he’s solidly behind Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware."
