KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The future of the Kansas City Chiefs organization is resting on Brett Veach's youth movement, which includes the likes of young talented cornerback and return specialist Tremon Smith. Smith is hoping for a big boost in year two. After all, things should be simpler the second time around.

"[I'm] Just more confident than I was last year," Smith said. "Knowing how things go. I know the coaches and I know we got new coaches, but still being in the system and knowing how defense and all that goes, [I'm] just looking forward to it."

Smith and the defensive backs had a chance to spend time with a group of kids at the Cornerstones of Care Gillis campus Wednesday afternoon. The group of players helped run drills for the NFL's Play 60 event.

The Chiefs will also partner with Cornerstones of Care for its annual charity game.
