From the Truman Sports Complex
The Chiefs gave the mediaÂ 30-minute window into the second full practice of the rookie mini-campÂ Saturday morning.
The Chiefs had 33 players participating: six first-year players, eight draft choices, 12 college free agents, long snapper Tanner PurdumÂ and six tryout players.Â The team has not released any information on the players who are in camp without a contract.Â There wereÂ 16 in the white jersey tops of the offense and 17 in the red jersey tops of the defense and special teams.
Here’s a look at what we could see from the defense in our short time on the field.
We’ll look at the offense in the afternoon session.
The defense came out in the 3-4 with the rookies as they did a walkthrough against the Chiefs offense.Â On the defensive line were draft choice Tyson Jackson at LDE, first-year Derek Lokey at NT and draft choice Alex Magee at RDE.Â Working at outside linebackers with the first group were first-year man Darrell Robertson and college free agent Pierre Walters.Â Inside linebackers were a pair of college free agents Javon Belcher and Corey Smith.Â On the corners were draft choice Donald Washington and college free agent Londen Fryar, with college free agent Ricky Price and an unknown tryout player at safety.
There were fiveÂ players working with Tim Krumrie on individual drills for the defensive line.Â One thing about the new additions to the group is their height: college free agents Bobby Greenwood andÂ Dion Gales are both 6-5, JacksonÂ isÂ 6-4 and Magee is listed at 6-3.
Working on outsideÂ LB drills were Walters and Robertson, with Belcher, Smith and a tryout player working at inside linebacker. The tryout was believed to be Yale LB Bobby Abare.
There wereÂ five defensive backs involved in the drills:Â CBs Fryar, Washington and college free agent Jackie Bates with Price and a tryout player at safety.
Purdum and kicker Ryan Succop were also on the field.
