3. What would Chiefs do with first pick in the draft?

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"For those with ESPN Insider access, Jeff Legwold has an interesting look at what each NFL team might do if it had the No. 1 overall pick.

He supposes the Kansas City Chiefs would take USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams instead of his second choice for them, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

I suspect Legwold has the two top choices for the Chiefs. Williams could be the best defensive line prospect to come along in a few years.

By Adam Schefter - ESPN

"Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan, the third overall pick in the 2013 draft, has been suspended without pay for the entire 2015 season following another violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

"We were disappointed to learn about Dion Jordan's most recent suspension for violating the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse," the Dolphins said in a statement. "A player's health and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. We have made every effort to support Dion, both on and off the field and we will continue to do so to the extent allowable under NFL guidelines.""    READ MORE…
