Wake Forest LB Aaron Curry might not be available when the Kansas City Chiefs pick third overall in next month’s NFL draft, but they’re doing their due diligence in case he falls to them.
Curry has a private workout scheduled with the Chiefs on April 2-3, then an interview with them on April 14-15. The double-dipping comes after Kansas City scouted Curry at the combine in February and his pro day at Wake Forest earlier this week.
As of now, Curry has met with or has workouts/interviews set up with teams that hold the top six picks.
Curry already has met with the Detroit Lions, who hold the first overall selection in the April 25-26 draft. The Cleveland Browns, who have the No. 5 pick, are staging a private workout with Curry on Saturday in Winston-Salem, where Wake Forest is located. Curry will meet with the Cincinnati Bengals (No. 6 pick) on Monday and Tuesday and the St. Louis Rams (No. 2 pick) on April 15-16.
Curry’s Wake Forest teammate, CB Alphonso Smith, has scheduled visits with the Oakland Raiders, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots. Smith, who had an Atlantic Coast Conference career-record 21 interceptions at Wake Forest, is projected to be a late first-round, early second-round selection.
