1. Mike Mayock says Chiefs can find impact receiver in draft

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"NFL.com draft analyst Mike Mayock has not released his first mock draft yet, but with the NFL Combine set to begin on Wednesday, he already has a very clear idea of what the Chiefs might focus on in the first round.

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"A closer look at the areas the Kansas City Chiefs could address in the draft. We'll get started with a look at the wide receivers, who are scheduled to work out Saturday in Indianapolis.

Position of need: The Chiefs were last in the league at wide receiver in catches (129), yards (1,588) and touchdowns (0). Their No. 1 wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe, had another in a series of uninspiring seasons (60 catches, 754 yards) and will turn 31 in September. It's past the time where the Chiefs should think about replacing him as their go-to wideout."    READ MORE…

5. It's a shame if Chiefs let Ron Parker walk

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"Recently I wrote that the Kansas City Chiefs have two players in ESPN's ranking of the top 20 prospective free agents: linebacker Justin Houston (No. 3) and center Rodney Hudson (No. 19).

Now comes cbssports.com with a list of five under-the-radar free agents and again, the Chiefs have two players listed. One of them, Hudson, is on both lists. Hudson might be under-the-radar to many NFL fans -- most centers are -- but he's definitely not an unknown to league personnel types looking for help on the offensive line."    READ MORE…
