We are officially one week away from the start of the 2015 NFL Draft. It’s an exciting time to be a football fan, especially when you root for a team with such upside as the Kansas City Chiefs. For now, here are the latest stories from around the web.

How many Hall of Famers have the Chiefs drafted?BJ Kissel of KCChiefs.com

"Some of these players spent their entire careers with the Chiefs, like the most recent addition, offensive lineman Will Shields (1993-2006), who will officially be inducted later this summer, and there are a few players who didn’t even play a single snap for them."

Deeper look at Kansas City’s scheduleLeigh Oleszczak of KC Kingdom

"I thought I’d dive a little deeper with my thoughts on the schedule, and how I’m not too pleased with it. For one, the Chiefs only get one primetime game at Arrowhead, and it’s a Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos. The good part is that it’s in week two of the season so the “wear and tear” on the players won’t be as prominent as it is later on in the season on a short week."

Chiefs have three primetime gamesKhaled Abdallah of NFL Spin Zone

"The primetime games come fast and furious for the Chiefs as they have two late-night dates in the first three weeks of the season. The first is a Thursday night showdown at Arrowhead Stadium against the Denver Broncos in Week 2. This match-up could set the tone for the division race and since the Broncos have won the division two years in a row and swept the Chiefs last season, this is an early chance to knock them off their perch."

ESPN analyst gives Chiefs offensive lineman in mock draft Adam Teicher of ESPN.com

"I’m not certain the Chiefs would agree. They did draft tackle Eric Fisher with the first overall pick in the 2013 draft, but general manager John Dorsey seems to believe interior linemen can be found later in the draft."

Kansas City announces preseason scheduleAdam Teicher of ESPN.com

"For those who are fans of the preseason or otherwise just missed it in Tuesday night’s hysteria over the regular-season schedule, the Chiefs also announced their preseason slate of games."
