As we head into April, the visits players make to teams leading up to the NFL Draft at the end of the month will happen more often. Teams are doing their due diligence in scouting potential employees. Two players expected to rack up the frequent flyer miles this month are Geno Smith and Stedman Bailey.
Bailey was in Charlotte on Monday for a workout with the Panthers. His first official visit to a team outside of Morgantown. Bailey had an earlier meeting with Carolina the day after WVU’s pro day with Panthers’ WR coach Ricky Proehl. New Panthers’ GM, Dave Gettleman, likely had a favorable report from Proehl and invited Bailey to Charlotte for a closer look.
With an aging Steve Smith on the roster and only one or two more seasons left until he retires, Bailey could be a perfect replacement as the team looks for a franchise receiver for the next decade.
Geno Smith arrived in Kansas City on Monday evening and will spend extensive time with the team on Tuesday according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. He is one of about eight players the Chiefs are taking a hard look at while trying to decide who the number one pick in the draft will be.
