At a press conference, Reid presented the injured updates to Skyy Moore receiver rookie and Jody Fortson (more on this here). Reid also asked questions, which we have collected in four sources:
Reid reopened a three-day rookie camp to start.
The Chiefs rookie minicamp ran from Saturday to Monday.
“It was great,” said the headmaster. “It was great to get everyone in here, these little boys here. (General Manager) Brett [Veach] did a great job of giving us two depths in each section. We were able to find a good team work. I think that’s a good foundation for the returning boys. Not everyone making the team, obviously, is out here, but those who come back in a week can hit the ground running, knowing the amount of photos, right? You’re down to the beginnings. Counting, how to get into the camp, the cover, the front, is good. ”
While the players are working on three short exercises, Reid sees the need to have younger players in their camp.
“She’s going crazy like crazy,” Reid said. “He’s in a meeting for half a day, so you know what their reservation is, how they take the class to the field. It’s all over, isn’t it? We’m not playing football out there, so you can see some of their competitors out there and what they can do in all roles. That’s right.
“It’s hard to talk about tackle, which is very important. It’s hard to talk about stopping, running a game. How does the defensive line change from pass to run? You can’t see it. How do athletes do it? Now you can’t see it, so just remove m ‘bags of such things.’ ”
Reid discussed the Chiefs’ first two options, defender Trent McDuffie and defender George Karlaftis.
Reid described McDuffie as both “smart” and “smooth.”
“He walks well,” he said from the corner. “Good hips. Good hands. I like the part of being smart when you play that position. Resources are essential. The way you do it. Growing up, diverse players – we have great receivers against it. How do you handle that?”
Reid learned that Karlaftis did not play – or for a minute – quit.
“She travels 100 miles an hour,” Reid said with a smile. “Walking through, everything. We should have slowed him down, but let me tell you, he seems to have a good idea for the game. We set up fire extinguishers yesterday, and he ‘s doing well in the air. He’ s good-looking hands. something that jumps on you. It goes and goes. ”
The Chiefs had already had to be careful with defensive players.
“After a while, you have to think about the other guy, but when you go that time, and I pass by and everyone passes by, then you hurt someone,” Reid said. “And you can be yourself, go the time we give you. We give you more time to go faster. He’ll take it to a training camp. She can travel up to 60 miles[100 km]an hour and do her own thing. Just knowing when to try. ”
Reid shared a final thought about Tyrann Mathieu.
Mathieu recently became a member of his hometown of New Orleans Saints.
“You love a child. He is great. The older son. Someone will have to get into it and take their game. We are blessed to have him here where the boys can see how he rolls and how he moves. I’m glad she has the opportunity to go home and play if she’s here with the Saints.
“He has a good player and a good man. I know he will miss the area and what he did there. Again, some guys have to take that and go. I really liked to have him here. Big boy.”
Reid describes what is happening right now – the end of the rookie camp – and May 25, the beginning of OTAs.
Dedicated, full-body exercises begin after two weeks.
“Once you hit the third level, then you can be wrong against defense,” Reid said. “For a couple of weeks in the second phase, with a different offense and security, you can check yourself and the guys carrying the bags. Once in the third phase you can go. We’ll still have meetings and then practice during the day, but you can make mistakes against security.”
