Ex-Chiefs RB Podolak injured when struck by car

Iowa football radio broadcaster and former Kansas City Chiefs running back Ed Podolak is in stable condition after suffering major injuries when he was struck by a car while walking across the street in Scottsdale, Ariz., early Sunday morning, his daughter, Laura Podolak, said Monday.

Before the 2010 NFL Combine, Mississipi State safety Kendrick Lewis was regularly appearing in the top three to four rounds of the many NFL draft projections. But after a relatively poor showing in the 40-yard dash (4.77 seconds) at the Combine, Lewis’ stock fell off to that weird draft edge often described as 7-FA, or “at best the guy may get drafted.” You’ll remember that the Kansas City Chiefs ended up drafting Lewis in the middle of the 5th round of the 2010 NFL draft.

He’s the former Ole Miss Football star who’s now an all-purpose player for the Kansas City Chiefs and considered one of the most exciting rookies in the NFL.

To say the least, Dexter McCluster’s celebrity is on the rise on and off the field. You can even find him in a Public Service Announcement rapping about the dangers of driving and texting

Rice is now at the top of the loaded class.

That should interest Kansas City and Oakland. I could see both teams adding a receiver in free agency. The Chiefs may be more aggressive. They need a No. 2 starter to pair with Dwayne Bowe. I could see Kansas City either spending a lot on a receiver or considering using the No. 21 pick on a receiver.
