    Partly a vet missing time. Partly the team wanting to see his backups.

    • From what I hear Darryl Harris has seen the majority of snaps at left guard. Could be a bit of wanting to see different guys, could be that Harris has been around a little while and perhaps he has progressed. Any news on if Asamoah has taken snaps at center?

      • From what I have heard Asamoah has been running with the 3rd team at OG, which is not a good sign but it's way early.

          John Clayton at Chiefs camp.

          • I'm getting tired of the "Dex looks good BUT he's only 5'8" etc. The kid can play. Stop worrying about his height.

            Oh, and Clayton claiming Thomas Jones is definitely going to be the starter is stupid.

            I guess I just don't like John Clayton.

            edit: I wouldn't worry about Asamoah. He's a 3rd round rookie in his first camp. He'll be fine.

            • So I just got back from watching practice. I think they were taking it a little easy today, just not a whole of contact really. Some things I saw:

              McCluster looks really good. About the only DB that really was able to keep up was Flowers.

              The coaches set it up that Albert and Hali would face each other in OL vs DL drills. In pass pro, from what I saw, Albert won 3 out of 4 times.

              Alex Magee looked really big, strong and disruptive in run drills, not so much in pass rush.

              Tyson Jackson easily beat Lilja on one play in pass rush, the next play Lilja completely stonewalled Jackson.

              Speaking of Lilja, he and Weigmann are much smaller than I thought.

              As you may be able to tell, I focused on the lines today. The offensive line looks like it could be coming together. Albert looked good for the most part. I thought Barry Richardson looked pretty good as well. Colin Brown had some explosion and Asamoah had good bend and punch.

              That's really all I have.

                • Sounds like Carr is having a rough camp, can't say I'm shocked, and I don't think Jones will start at RB but he is going to get the ball alot.

                    I'll do what I can. Hopefully I'll have time to go again next week or so. It was a fun experience, though. I'd recommend it.

                      Carr having a rough end to last year and now beginning to have a rough camp, when does Arenas get a chance and does Patrick Peterson become a much more likely possibility for the Chiefs if he is available? Imagine that for a second..... Brandon Flowers, Patrick Peterson, Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis. Damn!! Would anyone pass the ball or would they run on every down?

                      • They can already run on us on every down and Peterson will take a top 10 pick. If we're picking top 10 we have much bigger issues than CB.

                          Agreed, if the Chiefs are picking top 10 they need to be looking at the QBs. I'm partial to Luck but there's a lot of season to go.

                          Actually, while looking at this team right now, looking forward to 2011 draft, there's only 4 defensive players I would seriously consider taking in the 1st round (Cameron Heyward, Adrian Clayborn, Akeem Ayers, Jerrell Powe). The Chiefs have so many premium picks invested on defense the offense is going to need a little love too. One of the four receivers (AJ Green, Jonathan Baldwin, Julio Jones, Michael Floyd) or one of the QBs.

                            I don't think you can say that the Chiefs need a QB if they're picking Top 10. Cassel played well considering what he had to work with and behind last year (his line was just as bad in New England in 2008 ), and if the offense struggles again, there are still way more variables than QB. The only upgrades that were made were OL and RB. The receiving situation, which was the main issue with the offense in 2009 imo, could still be very sketchy depending on Bowe and how well Weis integrates his short passing game, and the TEs are all very prone to injury (which affects the receiving and blocking games). The need areas on defense are obvious.

                            • If one of the big 3 WRs are available when we pick, it'll be tough to pass imo, even if Bowe has a fantastic season. We're fixing the line, we have a solid QB (who is tough) and we have runners.. we need receivers.

                              If we're picking that high though I think it'll be defense. I wouldn't suggest using another top 10 pic on a 3-4 DE, but maybe they'd do that until one sticks. Who knows.

                              • To be fair, Pioli didn't draft Dorsey (and wouldn't have considering his health concerns going into the draft and the offer the Saints put on the table), and they were kind of stuck using him at DE. Whether they target a receiver depends on Bowe & Chambers. They need receiving help, but more in the form of slot receivers and TEs. This season's offense is very dependent on Lance Long. And that's kind of a werid and scary thought. I think he'll be fine, though.
