Draft Q&A: Cameron Sheffield

After being selected by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the NFL Draft, Cameron Sheffield spoke with the Kansas City media.  Here are the highlights.

Did you expect the Chiefs to be the team coming after you?

“I really didn’t know what to expect as far as who was coming after me.  I am very grateful that the Chiefs took interest in me and I will do my best to repay them back on the field.”

Were you expecting to be drafted as a linebacker?

“Yeah, throughout the different events, most teams pretty much told me I was going to be a 3-4 linebacker.  So I pretty much expected it.”

Is there anyone you have patterned your game after?

“I haven’t necessarily patterned my game after anyone per se.  I just try and stick to my own game… DeMarcus Ware is an eye catcher and also Dwight Freeney.”

What do you bring to the table?

“I am a pass rusher, I can play the run very well.  I will be able and willing to play special teams.  Anything they need me to do I will be more than willing to do.”

Where did you think you would go in this draft?

“I wasn’t really sure.  I was kind of thinking more fourth but the fifth round is where God intended me to go.  Honestly I believe that God has plans for everybody and that the Chiefs were part of my plan.”

Who called you and told you that you were going to be a Chief?

“Coach Haley.”

What did he say?

“’Are you excited to be a Chief?’”

What was your answer?

“I am very excited to be a Chief!”
