The shift and focus to next season continues for the Kansas City Chiefs. On Sunday, Chiefs general manager John Dorsey and his personnel staff arrived in Mobile, Alabama, site of the 2014 Senior Bowl.
Some of the country's best senior college football players will compete against each other as the North team, coached by Mike Smith and his entire Atlanta Falcons staff, faces the South team, led by head coach Gus Bradley and his staff from the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday, Jan. 25.
This very game has been well represented by 17 players on the current Chiefs roster (listed below), including two of last year's draft picks, Chiefs OT Eric Fisher and LB Nico Johnson.
Chiefs LB James-Michael Johnson recalled his 2012 Senior Bowl performance.
"We won," JMJ said. "I actually got an interception at the end of the game. They had a drive to come back and score and I got an interception on the last drive in the fourth quarter."
More importantly than the North team's 23-13 win, Johnson says the entire week provided an opportunity to prove his worth in front of NFL execs.
"I got to compete against the best players in the country," JMJ said. "It put a lot in perspective and I left there knowing that I can play at this level; I can play with these guys. It really helped me understand how the NFL's going to be."
