Good morning, Addicts! It’s HUMP DAYYYYYYY. The Kansas City Chiefs are less than 48 hours away from the first round of the 206 NFL Draft, which yours truly will be attending. Hopefully we can snag an interview with whomever the Chiefs take, and give you a little background on his thoughts heading to the barbecue capital of the world.
Here is the news you need to know…
Chiefs must get better with late-round picks – Adam Teicher of ESPN
"It’s time for them to turn that around. The Chiefs don’t have a third-round pick this year, and that puts more pressure on their decisions to hit not only with their first- and second-round choices but those in rounds 4 through 7 as well."
What to expect from Mike Williams in red and gold – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"If Mike Williams is going to turn it around anywhere, Kansas City is as good of a bet as any. Andy Reid creates a great environment for these types of players. Jeremy Maclin, Albert Wilson, Chris Conley and Rod Streater help create a professional approach to their position group."
Patriots would be a good trade partner for Chiefs in 2016 draft – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"I wonder if the Chiefs have talked to Andy Reid’s old pal Bill Belichick. He and Andy Reid have a history of doing trades together. Trades in the NFL can happen between any teams but it’s easier to pull the trigger with someone you know, someone who you trust won’t be screwing you."
What may be waiting for Kansas City at No. 28 – Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star
"Last year the Lions selected Duke guard Laken Tomlinson at No. 28, and he started 14 games. The previous season the Panthers took Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, and he turned in a big rookie year with 73 receptions and nine touchdowns. Benjamin tore an ACL last August and didn’t play in 2015."
