Both players recognize that it’s an exciting time for the fans and the city, but it’s also an exciting time for them too. Not only do they get to welcome some new teammates to the winning culture in Kansas City, but it brings back all the good memories of when they became members of Chiefs Kingdom. New prospects will soon get a chance to experience the same with the added excitement of being selected by the 2023 NFL draft’s host city.
