The Morning Fix: Aaron Murray, Running Backs, Pot


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. Here’s what’s going around the internet.

KC Kingdom offers their take on Aaron Murray as a potential diamond in the rough.

It goes without saying that I was not only happy, but thrilled when the Chiefs selected Aaron Murray with their 5th round selection. When you analyze all the facts, you find that this is a great pick with little risk and tons of upside. Lets look at some of the reasons why Aaron Murray will not only be a starter, but a star in the NFL.

Running backs are Adam Teicher‘s next target on his evaluations.

Sooner or later, Charles’ ability to deliver consistently huge production will drop off, but I’m not going to predict it this year. Davis came a long way from the start of last season to the finish. If he’s recovered from his broken leg, he’s capable of giving the Chiefs more than he did last season.

Real Sports Hype grades the Chiefs’ draft.

In terms of getting great value, the Chiefs had one of the best drafts out of all the NFL teams. However, they didn’t draft a true receiver at any point in the draft, and waited until the sixth round to select a guard. That ultimately hurts what was otherwise a really good draft.

Arrowhead Pride breaks down Dee Ford’s film.

Rather than try to sift through all the various opinions on Ford, I figured the smart thing to do would be to just watch whatever film is available on him. And thanks to the incredible site Draft Breakdown, I was able to do just that. 

Mel Kiper tells Terez A. Paylor the Chiefs’ draft turned out just fine.

“They had their eye on a pass rusher, and Dee Ford was projected to be a late first-round pick in two of the mocks I did,” Kiper said of the former Auburn defensive end, whom the Chiefs took 23rd in the first round. “So that you want to have that Seattle Seahawks rotation, (mimic their) ability to keep somebody fresh and get there to the quarterback.

“With teams throwing the ball so much, it makes sense.”

The NFL is considering revamping their marijuana policy.

A source told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the renegotiation of the drug policy, which has been going on since 2011 and includes testing for human growth hormone, also will significantly increase the threshold for a positive marijuana test and reduce the punishments for violations involving that drug.

Two non-football stories:

- Doc Rivers was not pleased with how the end of the Thunder-Clippers game was called.

- Pretty fantastic commencement speech from Jay Bilas.

    Hey, Ben, did you read where an UDFA going to the Niners may be able to collect between $750 thou and a Mill for dropping so low in the draft? Yeah, the LB, Breslin who had a big junior year at USC, took out an insurance policy to protect him if he suffered an injury in his senior year which could cause him to drop in the 2014 draft. Well, he did suffer such an injury and he did drop, so, now, he is going to collect. I wonder if Aaron Murray had taken out such a policy?

    • Chuck Burrell

      Bert, are you from San Fran or something?

      • berttheclock

        No, but, I follow the A’s. They came to KC when I was a junior in HS. I left for LA prior to their leaving KC, so, I never had the animosity against them for leaving So, I go to sfgate to read about them and while there check out the moves of the Niners. As we have picked up several players from them and I respect how Scott McCloughan and Trent Baalke have built them, I do read about their various moves. That is why I believe KC might have a shot picking up Quinton Patton, the wide out from the Niners as he might end up getting released or traded.

    • Ben Nielsen

      I did see something about that. I think Teddy Bridgewater had one of those for if he fell out of the first round (which he almost did). It pays to be good at sports, no?

  • scomstock55

    lol at the Rex Hudler video…that guy if funny…and he isnt afraid to laugh at himself… I like that he is with the Royals….he seems genuinely nice…I also like how Ryan gets his shots in when he can…”we landed on the planet moon”…lol

    • Ben Nielsen

      Ryan and Hud are a good mix. It puts Hudler in a good spot to be himself. He’s an entertaining guy with a lot of energy which is nice to have in the booth over a 162 game season.

      The Physioc/Hudler combination, on the other hand, is a disaster.
