Draft Rewind: Oklahoma’s Creed Humphrey eager to learn from Orlando Brown again

Draft Rewind: Oklahoma’s Creed Humphrey eager to learn from Orlando Brown again

By John Hoover

Kansas City coach Andy Reid and the Chiefs organization already knew who Creed Humphrey was. They had an extensive scouting report, multiple ringing endorsements and, of course, the requisite background checks on the Oklahoma center.

But then the Chiefs head coach heard something from the franchise’s newest offensive tackle — former Sooner Orlando Brown — and he was even more sold that the Chiefs needed to draft Humphrey.

“Orlando told us to go get Creed when he was here,” Reid said. “He goes, ‘There’s a good one at Oklahoma you need to take a peek at.’ We’d already had our eye on him, but it was neat for Orlando to put it out there to us that way.”

In trading with Baltimore for Brown and selecting Humphrey with the 63rd pick in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft, Reid and the Chiefs are stocking up with former Sooners to protect franchise quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
