Coffee with the Chiefs – 4/22 edition


We have enjoyed plenty of Kansas City Chiefs news over the past 24 hours, with the NFL schedule being released. Some love the docket, while others hate it, giving us just one more debate to enjoy before the 2015 NFL Draft is upon us. Incredibly, that is only eight days away. In the meantime, here’s the latest news, all in one place.

"The second round has a strong group of inside linebackers and would be the ideal spot for the Chiefs to grab one. Eric Kendricks out of UCLA is currently listed as the best inside linebacker, but he has a late first round early second round grade according to CBS Sports.

"But do you know who the Chiefs best player on offense is? Of course you do. Of course it’s Jamaal Charles. And do you really want him to run behind a line that has Donald Stephenson at right tackle and other question marks? Do you really trust Eric Fisher 100%? Fisher made quiet improvements last year, but the Chiefs still desperately need a better tackle than Stephenson anyway."
