From Indianapolis, Indiana
Every evening the 325+ players that are in town for the NFL Scouting Combine have meetings with individual NFL teams. It’s all part of that “getting to know you” process that goes into preparation for the NFL Draft.
On Friday night, the Chiefs will sit down with one of the biggest names in this year’s draft class, Heisman Trophy Winner/Baylor QB Robert Griffin III.
RG3 as he’s become known spilled the beans during his meeting with the media horde Friday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium. Griffin deftly handled his press conference and during the session let slip that he was meeting that night with the Chiefs and Cleveland Browns.
GM Scott Pioli acknowledged the meeting was scheduled during his 10 minutes of media time, and he didn’t even seem ticked off that Griffin had let the combine cat out of the bag.
“There are a lot of players that we are talking too,” said Pioli, who then laughed when he was asked if he was considering a first-round trade-up to draft Griffin.
“We will be talking to a number of players. You do your homework. You never know what’s going to happen with a player. After this morning, we are No. 11, but we don’t know where we’re going to be (in April). Right now there are 10 teams in front of us throwing out all kinds of smoke screens about what they are going to do.
You never know.”
