On Saturday, Orton and 41 others — students with developmental delays ranging from autism to Down syndrome to cerebral palsy — were at Arrowhead Stadium as the first adults to use the Chiefs Sports Lab as part of a program called ACED (Adult Continuing Education for Persons with Developmental Disabilities).
What makes the connection even more interesting is the huge jump in productivity Houston made after Grantham took over Georgia’s defense in 2010. Houston’s first two seasons at Georgia he played defensive end in a 4-3. But Grantham’s switch to the 3-4 moved Houston to outside linebacker and the junior racked up 67 tackles, 10.0 sacks, and 18.5 tackles, almost equaling his numbers from the two previous years.
Grantham’s relationship with Crennel and Chiefs’ GM Scott Pioli may also explain Kansas City’s willingness to take a chance on Houston who tested positive for marijuana at February’s combine, dropping him from a potential first round pick all the way to the third round.
Bill Williamson: I’m not sure he’s a perfect fit for the Chiefs even though Denver is planning to go with second-round pick Orlando Franklin at right tackle. I think Harris, if he hits the open market, will be best suited for a zone-blocking team. I could see Washington and former Denver coach Mike Shanahan showing interest in Harris.

Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
