Coffee with the Chiefs – 4/25 edition
The Kansas City Chiefs are zeroing in on the draft, but there is still time before then. With that in mind, let’s look around and see what we can enjoy in the meantime from our favorite team.
Mike Mayock talks Chiefs’ draft plans – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"I agree with a lot of this and I’m starting to lean away from the Chiefs taking a first round receiver after signing Maclin. Dorial Green-Beckham’s name has come up this week as he visited the Chiefs. The range of opinions on him is so wide that I don’t know if the Chiefs view him as a possible first round pick or they’re preparing in case he falls to the second."
Seven things we learned from John Dorsey’s presser – Pete Sweeney of KCChiefs.com
"Dorsey first explained that the main two things that go into immediate impact depend on a player’s position and their makeup, which in the past he has described as their “willingness to be great” or their “love for football.”"
Chiefs scouting report: Damarious Randall – John Viril of KC Kingdom
"They have ten picks to make, and they have a lot of holes. Would Damarious Randall be a good option for the KC Chiefs at the safety position?"
Smart move to extend Dontari Poe – Adam Teicher of ESPN.com
"Poe’s contract will now extend through the 2016 season. He will be paid a salary in 2016 of about $6.15 million. He is scheduled to make about $1.9 million this season."
Derrick Johnson’s return a welcome site – Adam Teicher of ESPN.com
"But the Chiefs have nobody on their roster capable of replacing Johnson. The three-time Pro Bowler is a standout against both the run and pass, and the Chiefs will have to search high and low for someone to adequately fill in for Johnson when he eventually does walk out the door for good."
