Berry, Arenas Out Of Rookie P.M. Practice

The Truman Sports Complex

Two of the Chiefs first three draft choices were watching practice Saturday afternoon at the team’s rookie camp. The other pick was very busy.

1st-rounder S Eric Berry and 2nd-rounder Javier Arenas were dressed but did not participate in most of the workout. Both Berry and Arenas were dressed and worked in some of the defensive back drills. But when it came time for team work, both were on the sidelines with secondary coach Emmitt Thomas. There was no obvious physical problem with either player.

Second-round WR/RB Dexter McCluster was practicing … boy was he practicing! The diminutive target was moved all over the offense by coordinator Charlie Weis. McCluster lined up at the left and right slot, the left and right wing and in the backfield as a running back. All this in just the third practice of the season. The only problem for McCluster was staying on his feet; the Chiefs moved outside for the P.M. practice and the turf was still wet from recent rains.

Third-round TE Tony Moeaki showed some of the receiving skills that caught the attention of the Chiefs in their evaluation of him. Several times he got free down the hashmarks and made very nice catches away from his body and with his hands.

The Chiefs worked briefly on the return game and with Arenas out, those catching balls off the jugs machine were McCluster, S Ricky Price and CB Jackie Bates.

Also sitting out the practice was first-year  WR Chandler Williams, who was in the rehab area riding the stationary bike.

    It has to be exciting seeing the new guys for the first time. Especially in Chiefs gear.
    I remember the saying “You only have one chance at a first impression”. I’m sure at some point you will share with us your first moment with those guys.
    Have a great weekend & as always we appreciate your efforts.
    Go Chiefs.
