KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs held an annual local Pro Day workout Friday at the team’s training facility in advance of the NFL Draft.

NFL teams are allowed to bring in draft prospects who are from the metropolitan area for a workout, in accordance with NFL rules. These players do not count against the 30 pre-draft visits teams are allocated.

The team’s website quotes Chiefs general manager John Dorsey as stating “16 to 20” players were present. Local media was not in attendance to report on the workout.
