Former Chiefs coach Herm Edwards spent a seventh-round pick on safety Jarrad Page, who went on to start every game in which Edwards was the coach, including the first 48 of his career.â†µ
The Chiefs traded Page, who was unhappy with the Chiefs, to the Patriots on Saturday.â†µ
Edwards talked with the Boston Herald about what type of player Page is.â†µ
”They’re getting a very smart football player, and Bill likes smart players,” Edwards said. ”He’s got great instincts. He can play in the box. He can cover tight ends. But his ball skills are what really make him stand out a little bit ahead of a lot of other guys. He’s got great anticipation. He’s just a really good football player. I really liked him.”â†µ
Edwards has reason to like Page. He got so many starts out of a seventh-round pick. And from the way Edwards is talking they were quality starts as well. That's excellent value that made many take notice of his ability to draft and develop defensive backs.â†µ
Edwards also drafted Bernard Pollard that year. Pollard was a second-round pick and released last year. He also had issues with the Chiefs front office.
