"It was pretty tense in there for a little bit because there were a couple other teams trying to get him," Reid said of the Chiefs' draft room. "There was a bit of tension, but everyone was excited when it happened. It wasn't one of those deals where half the room was in on him and half wasn't. Everybody was in on this kid and liked him, so everyone was pretty fired up."
"One of my favorite guys I've had a chance to coach," Reid said at the combine. "You know, he's not a very big guy but he's fearless, he ran inside, had the speed outside, world-class speed to turn the corner. Had great hands and on top of that he's a great kid and just dirty tough. ... But we all do get older and that's the way the National Football League is."
