The Morning Fix: Mike DeVito, Sleepers, Powder Alcohol

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. The 2014 NFL schedule comes out tonight at 7 p.m. Be sure to check back tonight to see what the Chiefs’ path to the Super Bowl looks like.

Brett Gering has a few sleeper draft picks who may be excellent fits for the Chiefs.

In the wake of the 2014 draft, at least one general manager (GM) will be deemed an eagle-eyed, talent-evaluating soothsayer.

It transpires every year like clockwork.

Said seer will pluck a sleeper off the board and eventually a) modestly chalk it up to his blue-collared staff or b) take his throne as a self-ordained scouting sage and drive the Kansas City Chiefs franchise into the ground, with an “I have a chair. Go do this. Go do this. King of the castle”-like outlook.

Randy Covitz informs us Alex Smith will receive an honorary doctorate from Utah.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who graduated in three years from the University of Utah with a degree in economics, will give the school’s commencement address at graduation ceremonies on May 1.

Mike DeVito is trying to get better at rushing the passer by re-working his body.

The answer was changing his diet. Since the end of the season, DeVito, a 6-foot-3, 305-pounder, embarked on a diet and conditioning program that he hopes will enable him to become agile enough to better rush the passer and contribute more to the defense.

Andy Reid seems fine with their current offensive line mix.

“We kept a load of offensive linemen on the roster knowing something like this could happen,” coach Andy Reid said. “Some of them are young guys but … they were able to get some experience and they’ll have an opportunity to compete in there.”

Good news? Chiefs players are still bitter about the playoff loss.

“It’s still not out, to be honest with you,” strong safety Eric Berry said during Monday’s media session. “Just because there is so much stuff you can learn from that game. And it ended your season the way you didn’t want it to end.”

Two non-football stories:

Powdered alcohol is a thing that exists. This seems like a disaster.

– Looks like Mike Alden was a key factor in Frank Haith leaving Mizzou (for better or worse).
