By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"The Kansas City Chiefs might get an eventual Hall of Famer with their first pick in this year's draft, 18th overall. They might get a player who goes bust. They'll probably get someone who is far closer to the middle of that range.

Here, we'll start a series that takes a look at the kind of player the Chiefs can expect with each of their 10 picks in this year's draft by looking at the players chosen with those picks over the last five years. We'll start with that 18th choice."    READ MORE…

2. Chiefs Trainer Rick Burkholder Explains His Role, Journey to Kansas City

By BJ Kissel -

"After 23 years as an athletic trainer, the Kansas City Chiefs' Rick Burkholder has earned the respect of those across the NFL.

That could be due to the fact that he's the president of the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society (PFATS), or because three of his former assistants and an intern are now head athletic trainers with the Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins.

But before he started his own NFL head athletic trainer tree, Burkholder learned about the profession at an early age, even though he didn't initially start down that path."    READ MORE…

3. Percy Harvin, Rex Ryan both talking big as Bills begin workouts

By Mike Rodak - ESPN

"Beginning offseason conditioning Monday with his fourth team in four seasons, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Percy Harvin insisted that he would return to his level of play before a troubled stint with the Seattle Seahawks that ended last season.

"The best has yet to come. The world has not seen my best ball yet," Harvin said. "That's why coming in here was so important to me. When I look at the running game and I looked at Sammy Watkins on the other side, me on the other side with Robert Woods, it spelled nothing but success for me."

Harvin was traded to the New York Jets in October after playing in just six games since joining the Seahawks in 2013. Sources told's Terry Blount that Harvin had physical confrontations with teammates and Seattle believed he had become a destructive force in the locker room."    READ MORE…

5. Demaryius Thomas says new playbook will be best of all worlds

By Jeff Legwold - ESPN

"When it comes to what the Denver Broncos' new playbook will look like, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has a theory.

And his theory is based on his experiences with the Broncos' playbooks from his five previous seasons with the team. For through those seasons, Thomas has lived the most extreme of extremes in the Broncos' offense.

He was there in 2011 when the Broncos either led, or were tied for the lead, in the league in rushing attempts (546), rushing attempts per game (34.1) and rushing yards (2,632), when as Thomas said last week "we ran all the time and then ran some more." And Thomas was there in 2013 when the Broncos set an NFL single-season scoring record with 606 points."    READ MORE…
