Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. 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 Morning Fix.
Good morning, Addicts. Four weeks from today we will be discussing the Chiefs’ first round pick. We’re almost there (yet so far).
Adam Teicher asks if Andre Rison was the Chiefs’ last elite wide receiver.
The most popular answer was Andre Rison, who played three seasons for the Chiefs in the late 1990s and caught 133 passes with 12 touchdowns. His only big season with Kansas City happened in 1997, when Rison caught 72 passes for almost 1,100 yards.
Teicher (Insider access required) also talked Todd McShay’s mock draft.
McShay has the Chiefs taking Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer with the 23rd overall pick. That’s an interesting selection for the Chiefs. Latimer, who had foot surgery in January, wasn’t able to participate at the NFL scouting combine in February. But he ran a 4.44 40 at Indiana’s pro day last month and at 6-foot-2½ and 215 pounds, Latimer has the size the Chiefs need in a receiver.
Reid Ferrin takes a look back at past third-round picks.
The Kansas City Chiefs have several well-known and very productive players who were selected in the third round of the NFL Draft. We continue our Chiefs draft history below, taking a look at the players selected in round three of the draft, during the last 20 years, including stats from their rookie seasons.
Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt thinks the secondary trumps wide receiver.
In a division like the AFC West it is imperative that the second and third levels of your defense are sound and the Chiefs have to get better in this area. I won’t be surprised if they’re looking to draft a few defensive backs — such as cornerbacks Jason Verrett of TCU, Bradley Roby of Ohio State or Terrance Mitchell of Oregon and free safety Calvin Pryor of Louisville — along with a WR to help Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles.
Who had the best Wonderlic score at the NFL Combine for quarterbacks? Johnny Football.
Even though Wonderlic test scores probably don’t have much a correlation with how quarterbacks perform in the NFL, this can’t be a negative for Manziel. Nevertheless, we’ll await further confirmation until we make any sweeping judgments.
Two non-football stories:
– The “Daily Show” had some fun at the NCAA’s expense.
– Stephen Colbert will be taking over for David Letterman.
