Chiefs | Dontari Poe receives praise

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 11:03:46 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs DT Dontari Poe was praised by head coach Andy Reid recently. Reid said to get Poe off the field you have to pull him off and that he is "not one to tap out." Reid added that there was no decline in Poe's play later on last season, despite how often Poe was on the field. Poe should continue to see plenty of work again this season as the Chiefs did not add a nose tackle to take Poe's place.

NFL | Defensive end bust candidates revealed

Tue, 24 Apr 2012 12:48:35 -0700

Twenty NFL Draft evaluators named North Carolina DE Quinton Coples as the most likely defensive end bust in this year's draft class. "His interviews are so delusional in terms of him thinking he's one way and everybody else saying that he's another," one personnel man said. "If he doesn't have it in him, people will be waiting for something that's not going to happen." Coples led with 5 1/2 votes, while Memphis DT Dontari Poe and Penn State DT Devon Still each received 3 1/2 votes. "Love Poe's ability," one scout said. "Don't like the way he plays. Pretty good kid. Quiet. Humble. Country. Pretty well-spoken. But he doesn't know what he doesn't know. If you tell him that he doesn't play hard, he's like,'Really?'" West Virginia DE Bruce Irvin received three votes, Michigan State DT Jerel Worthy received 2 1/2 votes and Louisiana State DT Michael Brockers and Illinois DE Whitney Mercilus received one each.

NFL | Dontari Poe showing versatility

Mon, 27 Feb 2012 09:30:27 -0800

Memphis DL Dontari Poe has arguably been the star of the NFL Scouting Combine with his size, strength and speed. Poe ran an unofficial time of 4.87 seconds in the 40-yard dash and 1.7 seconds in the ten-yard split. Many 3-4 teams will see Poe as a nose tackle, and that's probably where he will get drafted. However, his workout shows that Poe could be moved around in a variety of defensive line positions on a 3-4 or 4-3 defense.
