Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.
Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom today.
Welcome to The Fix.
The Senior Bowl is a huge deal, not only for college football, but also the pros because it’s where the road to the draft really begins. As day two wrapped up yesterday, Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin has a report up, detailing why “Every Rep is Important.” Check out the Mothership for all of their Senior Bowl coverage.
The three signal-callers on the North squad are Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas, University of Miami QB Stephen Morris and Clemson QB Tajh Boyd, who described the process of playing under an NFL coaching staff, the Atlanta Falcons.
“It’s somewhat similar,” Boyd said. “We kind of run a tight ship, over at Clemson. Coach (Dabo) Swinney is very energetic, a very charismatic guy, but at the same time, he’s very attentive to details and at this level, that’s all you’re really focusing on, certain dropbacks, certain play-actions and being very critical about that stuff, so, there’s not much change in that regard. Now, it’s just learning how to adjust to their system and what they want done, but it’s all going well.”
Ferrin isn’t the only reporting covering the Chiefs at the Senior Bowl this year. The Kansas City Star’s Terez Paylor is also there and he has a running blog this week of his observations and thoughts on who the Chiefs brass are talking to. I got a pretty big kick out of the Senior Bowl Musings section of his piece.
McGill is a really intriguing prospect. Dude is 6 feet 3 and 205 pounds and is basically a clone of Sean Smith; both are huge corners who went to Utah and are converted receivers. The fact the Chiefs spoke to McGill and Jean-Baptiste tells me their preference for big corners isn’t changing any time soon.
Finally today, Adam Teicher at ESPN started a nine-part series today examining each position group for the Chiefs and breaking down what they may — or may not — do in the off season.
The Chiefs should keep: Fasano, Harris, Kelce and McGrath. They won’t need four tight ends going into the regular season so they should let Harris and McGrath battle for the final roster spot. Besides, with the injury problems they had this season, it doesn’t hurt to have numbers here.
That’s it for your Wednesday edition of the Fix, Addicts. Enjoy your hump day and GO CHIEFS!
