David LeGree was harder on himself than the coaches evaluating him -- at least to the press. But the pressure on a rookie is clear when speaking with the undrafted free agent quarterback from Hampton trying to play his way onto the Kansas City Chiefs roster.
LeGree was the only quarterback among numerous draft picks, UDFAs and tryout players this weekend, which gave him a great chance to show off his talents. Toward the end, he wasn't pleased with his effort.
Josh Looney from the Chiefs official site describes the downturn.
"David LeGree showed signs of fatigue in the closing minutes of Chiefs Rookie Minicamp Sunday afternoon. His passes lacked the spiral from earlier in the weekend and he missed receiving targets high on multiple throws."
"Being the only quarterback out here, you don't get a chance to throw and then come out," LeGree said. "You're throwing every throw. That's my fault. I have to be better than that. There's no excuse, especially not in this league, so I have to do better on that."
However, LeGree said that he was thankful for what he was able to display.
"I've been in the big school atmosphere, but you never have coaching like Jim Zorn's coaching and NFL coaching," LeGree said. "It's just a great experience. Whatever happens next, happens next."
"As a tryout guy, it's a good experience to be out here and to get repetition and NFL coaching. What happens next, I'm not too sure about that yet."
