PostSubject: Offseason Workouts   Fri May 11, 2012 3:00 pm

First topic message reminder :

Martin Rucker among rookie camp participants

Former Missouri tight end Martin Rucker is among 10 players participating in the Chiefs' rookie camp on a trial basis. Rucker, who is from St. Joseph, has played with the Browns, Cowboys and Jaguars. He was drafted by Cleveland in 2008 when the Browns were coached by Romeo Crennel.

One other tryout player, linebacker Leon Williams, was drafted by the Browns in 2006, also when they were coached by Crennel.

Another player of note is quarterback David LeGree, who began his college career at Syracuse before transferring to Hampton. The Chiefs have only three quarterbacks under contract and would prefer to take four to training camp. LeGree could eventually be that quarterback.

Otherwise, the Chiefs are mostly taking a look at specialists. They will look at three deep snappers (Tom DeTemple of Cincinnati, James Winchester of Oklahoma and Clint Mower of Utah), a kicker (Jason Cunningham of Montana State) and a punter (Paul Hershey of Ohio).

The others are an offensive lineman (Jacob Phillips, who played in college at Belhaven in Mississippi) and a defensive back (Dominique Ellis of South Carolina State).

In all, the Chiefs will have 38 participants, including eight draft picks, 15 undrafted rookies under contract, the 10 tryout players and five of their younger veteran players: fullback Shane Bannon, running back Shaun Draughn, wide receiver Jamar Newsome and offensive linemen Ron Bruggeman and Luke Patterson.

Hali isn't the senior member of the Chiefs defense, but among the core group only linebacker Derrick Johnson, at 29, is older. It could be a sign of his changing role in Kansas City that the Chiefs placed the locker of their first-round draft pick, nose tackle Dontari Poe, immediately next to Hali's.

Perhaps it's a coincidence, or perhaps the Chiefs want Poe getting a close look at how Hali prepares.

"That's on all of us," Hali said. "But he's next to me, so I guess he's going to be hearing from me."

Chiefs' Tamba Hali Is Getting Respect From His Peers from KC Star

Make no mistake: the Chiefs stand to lose with either decision they make. Slow-play the Bowe negotiations, forcing him to suit up for the $9.4 million franchise salary, and risk losing him in the future. Extend him now and endure the threat of him backsliding into 2009 form. The latter would subject the Chiefs to losing big, costing them upward of $50 million guaranteed and starting a chain reaction that could hinder future negotiations with other players.
Chiefs Can't Afford To Risk Giving Bowe A Long-Term Deal from KC Star


Siler put on a helmet and practiced for the first time since blowing out an Achilles last August. His participation on Tuesday was limited to individual drills, but it was a significant step in Siler's push to compete for a place in the Chiefs linebacking corps.

"It was a lot of fun and it was football again," Siler said. "All the (rehab) stuff that you do is meant to get you back playing football. When you get out there and put your helmet on - and I don't know how long it's been since I've had my helmet on - it feels really good."

Minicamp Notebook: Brandon Siler And Abram Elam Step Forward from The Mothership

Veteran safety Abram Elam was signed by the Chiefs only last week but has already made an impression in practice. He has been starting in the absence of the regulars, Berry and Kendrick Lewis. Elam intercepted a Matt Cassel pass intended for Kevin Boss on the first play of a seven-on-seven passing drill Tuesday.

"I was just doing my responsibility," Elam said of his interception. "I was coached to read (Boss) and locate the ball. I just went and made the play."

Chiefs Buzz: Minicamp Begins from KC Star

Crennel said one of the priorities of the Chiefs' three-day minicamp will be to get their new offense in place, allowing for a seamless transition into training camp.

There are already signs of that happening.

Baldwin created enough space on three straight pass plays that he managed to haul in passes from Cassel with relative ease. Wide receiver Terrance Copper added a couple of impressive over-the-shoulder grabs, while the running game behind Peyton Hillis began to pick up steam.

I guess Tanney wasn't looking too good today.. It sounds like he is wild with his passes and just doesnt have the accuracy we all saw on the 'trick shot' video.

Doesn't sound like it does it. Maybe he is just nervous and still adjusting. Only time will tell.

That's want I want to see from you Poe! Pioli is going to wind up looking like a freakin genius from the Poe selection I have a feeling.

The kid has the accuracy. Handling the speed of the NFL game and being accurate at this level is an entirely different matter though. He's going to have to learn to make his decisions a lot faster. This is the part that dooms most prospects.

And Baldwin too. Poe might even be able to make the Jackson pick look a little better.

For the sake of our team I hope Pioli and Crennel are right about Poe. I like what I hear about him.

Yeah hearing good things. I can't wait till they put the pads on. July 27th I think it is. If we keep hearing good things then and see ourselves in preseason. Then I will start getting very excited.

Kansas City Chiefs: Dontari Poe Rookie Stat Projections
By Jeremy Sickel(Featured Columnist) on June 20, 2012 979 reads

www.kansascity.com
The Kansas City Chiefs' selection of Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe with the 11th pick in this year's NFL draft was accompanied by a wide range of reviews.

While the Chiefs' most apparent need heading into this offseason was to finally acquire a nose tackle capable of eating up the middle of the defensive line, most saw Poe as too much of a question mark to be selected that high in the draft. Some felt that either drafting offensive guard David DeCastro or trading down to acquire more picks to mitigate risk were the better options.

So far in offseason OTAs, Poe has received praise from Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs coaching staff. But it is the franchise's recent track record with evaluating talent across the defensive line and Poe's label as a workout warrior that has fans on pins and needles as the 2012 season approaches.

Until Poe performs at game speed, no one will truly know if he can be what the Chiefs need him to be as early as this season, if it will take more time for him to acclimate to the NFL game or if he will be on the fast track to bust status.

The nose tackle position is hard to evaluate, though, so to truly assess Poe's performance, one must look at not only his numbers, but how he affects the players around him.

If Poe is doing his job clogging the trenches for the Chiefs, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson and the rest of the defense will be reaping the spoils this season.

While it is tough to gauge Poe's potential statistical output, here are some predictions as to how he might fare for the Chiefs in 2012.




Dontari Poe 2012 Stat Projection

16 games played making 13 starts

4.5 quarterback sacks

Four pass deflections

Two forced fumbles

One fumble recovery

42 tackles including 30 assists



If Poe is able to accumulate these projected numbers, his rookie season will have been considered a huge success, and the Chiefs defense would begin to garner some major respect around the NFL.
