Coffee with the Chiefs – Ramik Wilson impressing
Good morning, Addicts! It’s the middle of the week, which means the weekend is in sight. While you are waiting to get there, we have all kinds of good stuff for you to read. I don’t know about you, but once the NFL Draft is over, I can almost see the regular season in my sights. Exciting stuff. Anyway, here’s your latest Kansas City Chiefs news.
Ramik Wilson impressing Andy Reid – Pete Sweeney of KCChiefs.com
"Though Wilson comes from one of the country’s premier college football teams and conferences in Georgia and the SEC, he quickly relinquished the idea that it could make competing in the NFL any easier. He realized that the professional realm is a whole different animal entirely, so his strategy was to place special focus on the details over the course of the past three days."
Q & A with J.J. Birden – Mike Norris of KC Kingdom
"During his time in Kansas City, Birden had 183 catches, for 2,819 yards and 14 touchdowns. He caught another 61 passes for 622 yards and three touchdowns in two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons."
Chiefs must find ways to play Dee Ford – Dan Schmelzer of NFL Spin Zone
"The selection was a case of the Chiefs selecting the best player available regardless of need. While you can never have too many pass rushers, many question the Chiefs’ selection of Ford, and that was somewhat backed up with him seeing very little playing time as a rookie in 2014."
Justin Houston named third-best player by PFF – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"From the point that he entered the Chiefs’ starting lineup in Week 11 of 2011, Houston showed the ability to be one of the league’s best and most productive 3-4 outside linebackers. He put his two half-seasons of quality play in 2011 and 2012 together into an excellent full 2013 which he used as a springboard for this scintillating 2014 showing. In most other years, Houston’s level of performance and production would have seen him named Defensive Player of the Year."
