[Kansas City.com] Kansas City’s Ryan Sims is not speaking with the media these days, but Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil is.
So let Vermeil give his report on the 315-pound defensive tackle – the sixth overall pick of the 2002 draft, who so far has been a classic underachiever and a primary reason the Kansas City defense was so terrible.
“He’s a better player. There’s no question,” Vermeil said Tuesday. “In fact, I’ve had opposing line coaches tell me that already in preseason games.”
“What Ryan has done, I think he’s become better defined in his own mind what he wants to be,” Vermeil said. “And for all the right reasons. He’s demonstrated it on the practice field all through training camp. He has never worked like he’s worked at any time in his college career or now. And it’s starting to pay off now.”
“His hard work is shown in his consistency, his fundamental technique, his ability to dominate from time to time an offensive linemen. His ability to play within the discipline of the scheme. It’s been demonstrated on a consistent basis. I’m very pleased with the progress he’s made.”
