The Morning Fix: Chiefs News and Headlines 2/7/2014

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.

Now that Super Bowl XLVIII is firmly in our rear-view mirror and the off season is fully under way, everyone’s passion from now until the NFL Draft in May will be conducting mock drafts. Two of the biggest names in the business are Mel Kiper from NFL.com and Todd McShay from ESPN who both releases mock drafts yesterday. Co-editor Ben Nielsen covered their choices to the Chiefs, but both Adam Teicher from ESPN and Terez Paylor from the Kansas City Star are talking about it this morning.

From Paylor’s piece:

”Because of the great depth and talent at receiver and that’s something I think the Chiefs need to add, I think probably the first round would be the chance to do it,” Kiper Said.

Hence the reason he has the Chiefs selecting Florida State star receiver Kelvin Benjamin in his latest mock draft.

Teicher talks about both players being able to fit in with the Chiefs:

Either player makes sense for the Chiefs. Both players entered the draft as juniors so they may need more time to develop. The Chiefs would need immediate help from either player, but not necessarily as a starter. The Chiefs have veterans in Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery, A.J. Jenkins and Weston Dressler, so they wouldn’t have to ask a rookie to carry the load.

Finally today, the Mothership is continuing its series of looking back at position groups from the 2013 season. Today, Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin looks at the Chiefs TEs: By the Numbers.

Fasano started nine games at tight end in 2013, missing four contests (Week 3-6) with an ankle injury and two games (Weeks 14-15) because of a concussion. Despite the injuries, Fasano’s diligent work with Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder and staff, got him back on the field in time to make unbelievable plays, like the jaw-dropping, back-of-the-end zone catch against the Denver Broncos in Week 11.

That’s all of your Chiefs news and headlines today. Enjoy your weekend and GO CHIEFS!
