1. With Chiefs rookie OL Morse, the word tough doesn't even do him justice
By Sean Keeler - Fox Sports Kansas City
"Josh Henson can't remember if the kid was a true freshman or a redshirt, but he remembers this:
Mitch Morse looked like dog crap.
Oh, not his play. Dude was owning people. A punch here, a slide step there, giving his man hell, taking two-a-days at 100 miles per hour. But the young Missouri Tigers blocker seemed to be getting skinnier with each passing morning, and came off the field gray and slumped, staggering as if he had just walked off the most hellacious roller coaster known to man."

There were roughly five major needs the Chiefs needed to address in the draft and they answered all of them while landing a Day 1 starter at corner in Peters. Conley has the tools to get the Chiefs some much-needed scores from the wideout spot and GM John Dorsey solidified the middle of the defense with middle-round picks." READ MORE…
