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 NFL Draft is FINALLY here! Now it is time to panic…

Arrowhead Pride has three draft day trades for the Chiefs to consider.

The 49ers also have an extra third round pick — No. 77. They could send that and their No. 30 pick to the Chiefs for the 23rd pick. This gives the Chiefs two third round picks in exchange for moving back seven spots in the first round. That’s a similar trade the Chiefs made when moving back in 2011.

Adam Teicher tells us what a good draft for the Chiefs looks like.

So the Chiefs don’t have to steer their draft in any particular direction when it begins tonight with Round 1. As long as the Chiefs get a player who helps them eventually if not as a rookie, their draft is off to a good start regardless of what position he plays.

This weekend is why you hire John Dorsey.

Dorsey was eager to make a couple of things crystal clear. The first is that he will stay true to his board and take the best player available with his first pick.

“It’s the art of discipline,” Dorsey said. “I’ve been taught that at a very early stage of my career by Ron Wolf. He stayed true to that and that’s what we’ll do. We’ll always stay disciplined with that number.”

Javier Arenas talks about being back home with the Atlanta Falcons.

“I got that feeling again. That home feeling,” Arenas said before Tuesday’s Crimson Caravan event at The Westin in Buckhead.
