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. Happy NFL Draft Month (finally)!

Alex Smith will give the commencement address today at the University of Utah.

The most amazing statistic about the QB who went 21-1 as Utah’s starter, including the 12-0 season of 2004, is that his 30th birthday is next Wednesday. Smith is the oldest 29-year-old person I’ve ever known, starting with the accumulation of college credits that enabled him to come from high school in San Diego and earn an economics degree in two years.

Adam Teicher asks fans which wide receiver should the Chiefs take?

It’s possible none of the five we’re offering you will be available, either. A number of teams with needs at wide receiver will pick ahead of the Chiefs and it’s not out of the question that five or six receivers will be off the board by the time the Chiefs get their chance.

Andy Reid has a history of drafting defensive linemen early.

Reid’s Eagles and these Chiefs are different teams with different needs so we can’t say because Reid drafted defensive linemen high in Philly he’s going to do the same in Kansas City. But 60 percent of his top picks in the last 10 years were defensive linemen. So it’s not a bad guess.

Chiefs players made a visit to Fort Leavenworth yesterday.

Ultimately, the eruption of beaming smiles among adults and children announced the arrival of quarterbacks Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray, inside linebacker Derrick Johnson, KC Wolf and two cheerleaders.

“It’s always great when professional athletes come and meet with the soldiers and families,” Master Sgt. Sharonn Doyle of Walla Walla, Wash., said. “It reminds us that they remember us.”
