Romeo Crennel Comments Dontari Poe, Jeff Allen And Rest Of Chiefs Draft Class

For those wanting to know a quick snapshot of the latest Kansas City Chiefs choices from the 2012 NFL Draft over the weekend, you can't beat having a coach who will give you quick quotes.

Romeo Crennel took some time out to give a sentence or two about each player's performance at the team's rookie mini-camp held over the weekend. The results are exactly what you'd expect from a group playing for the first time at the NFL level.

Dontari Poe:

"I know everybody wants to know about Poe a little bit. I thought he made some progress from day one until today. He still has work to do."

Jeff Allen:

"Allen missed (Saturday) because of his graduation, but in the first day he looked like he could bend a little bit, took some leadership, asked good questions in the classroom, so we're excited about that."

Donald Stephenson:

"I think he's a good athlete. I think he's going to do well for us."

Devon Wylie:

"Wylie showed he has some quickness and has ability to make some plays. I think that's the case."

DeQuan Menzie:

"I think the big thing is we want to take a look at him at safety as well to see how he picks up on that and if he can handle that. Then that will make a big determination about how we use him."

Cyrus Gray:

"He shows flashes. One time, he looks really good and another time, he looks like he doesn't know what to do yet, but that's what a rookie does."

Jerome Long:

"He had to go back to take some finals, so he had to leave today to do that. He worked hard while he was there."

Junior Hemingway:

"I think he's a sure-handed receiver and I think once he gets acclimated to the way we do things. I think he'll show up a little bit more."
