From Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis
General Manager John Dorsey met the media on Friday afternoon at the NFL Combine and succeeded in replying to questions while providing minimal information. In just one year, Dorsey has already mastered the No. 1 trait for the typical league GM.
He did touch on a couple subjects that provided new information or a different look at the Chiefs players and position groups.
Here’s what Dorsey said about
The rookie season of last year’s No. 1 NFL Draft choice, offensive tackle Eric Fisher: “I think he made great strides as the season went along. You could see a great degree of comfort with him in the second half of the season. I’ve always said that between the first and second year, that’s when those guys make their greatest strides and I expect great things from Eric in his second year.”
Development of wide receiver A.J. Jenkins: I think he has made great strides this year. As the season unfolded, he became comfortable with the offensive scheme and towards the end of the season, he got very comfortable. That’s a credit to the coaching staff. Coach (David) Culley (receivers coach) did a marvelous job. He did some nice things in the playoff game and I expect him to (have) a really nice second season with the Kansas City Chiefs.”
The offensive line play in the 2013 season: “I think that as the season unfolded, they got used to the new scheme. I think they’re the youngest offensive line in the National Football League and they came together, they grouped together and towards the end of the season they were starting to grow. I see this as a very good positive moving forward.
The addition of wide receiver Weston Dressler from the Canadian Football League: “He has shown on his film from the CFL he’s very competitive. What we do as an organization is we try to turn over every stone we possibly can to find players that will (give us) the competitive depth that we’ve always talked about. I think he’s a very unique player. He’ll have a little bit of (punt/kick) return thing in here. He is a player you bring into camp and see how he competes and see how he fits.”
