Rating the top CBs in NFL Draft, with eye on Chiefs’ needs | The Kansas City Star

Chiefs’ need at the position: High. The offseason trade of Marcus Peters creates a hole the Chiefs are confident can be filled by third-year pro Kendall Fuller, who was the jewel of the Alex Smith trade. The Chiefs are also banking on a big contract season by fourth-year pro Steven Nelson and a comeback season by David Amerson, who is working on a one-year prove-it deal.

Sean Payton: Saints would have taken Patrick Mahomes with pick 11

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton appeared on The Dan Patrick Show Monday morning, and Patrick asked Payton about last year’s NFL Draft.

If you remember, then-general manager John Dorsey and the Kansas City Chiefs traded up to No. 10, jumping ahead of the New Orleans Saints at No. 11.

That, as it turns out, was the right move.

“The guy we had grade very high last year was (Patrick) Mahomes,” Payton told Patrick. “He was a target at 11. He was definitely in our 11 cloud. The...

Chiefs offseason EDGE review: do they have enough?

Offseason Need: Debatable To put it bluntly: the Chiefs’ pass rush wasn’t good enough last season. It totaled 31 sacks, compared to 46 and 47 in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Too often, opposing offenses were able to neutralize the Chiefs defense by focusing on Justin Houston and daring others to win their individual matchups. It’s clear they need to be better. What isn’t clear is what they need to do this offseason to get better. They might rely upon the development of young guys...

Chiefs’ 5 biggest needs ahead of the draft

Andy Reid says the Kansas City Chiefs could line up and play tomorrow if they had to, which is a testament to how strong and deep he believes this roster to be. The Chiefs will get a chance to add to that this week with the 2018 NFL Draft starting on Thursday and the pursuit of undrafted free agents after it ends on Saturday. The Chiefs do have needs. They may have fewer immediate needs than other teams, but like everyone else, you’re also planning two to three years down the road. And...

The big Steven Nelson film review: some promising signs

The draft is only a few days away, and you could cut the tension with a knife. Every year, we work ourselves into a frenzy trying to figure out who the Kansas City Chiefs should (and shouldn’t take). We develop our favorites, read endless scouting reports, and generally make giant fools out of ourselves. Which, quite frankly, is half the fun of being a sports fan. However, we’ve still got a few days to wait. So why not kill some time by reviewing the film of a guy we know will be a...

Arrowheadlines: Will the Chiefs take a DL at pick No. 54?

Chiefs projected NFL draft picks, mock draft, 4/21/18 | The Kansas City Star
SECOND ROUND

DL Nathan Shepherd, Fort Hays State (54th overall): There will be a learning curve here, as Shepherd played his college ball at tiny Fort Hays State. But there’s no doubting his physical traits and tape. At a solidly-built 6 feet 4 and 315 pounds, Shepherd possesses outstanding athleticism and a real drive to get better. He’ll have the benefit of playing a handful of snaps this year behind...

The Chiefs’ third-round pick is set to receive free pizza for a year

The Kansas City Chiefs’ “Junk Food Friday” is about to reach a whole new level, and I’m not sure it’s such a good thing.

According to ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell, Pizza Hut is planning to give the No. 78th overall pick (in the third round) free pizza for an entire year.

And yes, the Chiefs currently hold that pick.

The 78th pick in this year’s NFL Draft will receive a free pizza for an entire year courtesy of new league pizza sponsor Pizza Hut. Why #78? It’s...
