Coffee with the Chiefs – 4/30 edition


Marcus Peters visited Chiefs, perhaps a targetJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"Peters is just under six foot and weighs 197 pounds which makes him heavier than both Waynes and Johnson. He’s also a better tackler than both of those players and, as Gruden pointed out in a draft show with Kiper, teams will run at you all day if you have a corner who can’t tackle. The Chiefs ask their corners to be physical and from that standpoint, Peters appears to be more physical than Waynes or Johnson."

List of Kansas City Chiefs draft picksWill Osgood of FanSided

"The Chiefs aren’t that far away from being a legitimate contender. That one special player—if they’ve done their scouting right—could make the difference for them in what seems to be a more wide open AFC West than in years."

Chiefs scouting report: Adrian AmosJohn Viril of KC Kingdom

"Adrian Amos also can explode downhill, but doesn’t seem to make many big plays. He can also fail to wrap up when trying to make tackles, which suggests he’s more of a deep coverage guy than an in-the-box safety."

Chiefs scouting report: Shaq ThompsonJohn Viril of KC Kingdom

"Shaq Thompson is a guy that can make plays. I’m certain that Kansas City Chiefs defensive boss Bob Sutton would love to have such a versatile asset."

Andy Reid’s history of drafting receiversKhaled Abdallah of NFL Spin Zone

"Since he began his head coaching career in 1999, Andy Reid has selected 12 wide receivers spanning all seven rounds of the NFL Draft. In his early years, Reid selected players like Troy Smith and Gari Scott who had little to no impact on the league but he also drafted players like Todd Pinkston and Freddie Mitchell who were key pieces to the NFC Championship runs. Mitchell was a first round bust but he did make the famous 4th-and- 26 catch against the Packers."

Could boxing save Eric Fisher’s careerAdam Teicher of

"Fisher turned to boxing near his offseason home of Rochester, Michigan, to help him improve his football skills. Fisher is still attempting to prove he’s worthy of being the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, which he was in 2013."
