1. 2015 NFL Draft winners & losers: Browns, Falcons, Chiefs nailed it

By Dane Brugler - CBS Sports

"The 2015 NFL Draft is complete and now is time for everyone to dissect each team's haul from the weekend. Let's be honest, it's unfair to accurately grade each class until at least a few years down the road, but several teams stood out for what they did in the NFL Draft.

Kansas City Chiefs

I love what they did, adding two impact cornerbacks who will help right away with Washington's Marcus Peters and Oregon State's Steven Nelson. Kansas City also added an underrated offensive lineman out of Missouri, Mitch Morse, who can play any spot on the offensive line.

The Chiefs drafted a pair of Bulldogs with wide receiver Chris Conley and linebacker Ramik Wilson – Conley tested off the charts while Wilson had excellent production in the SEC. And then in the later rounds, Kansas City was able to snag Southern Miss defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches in the sixth round, which is an absolute steal. General manager John Dorsey and his crew had a great weekend."    READ MORE…

2. Productive offseason puts Chiefs in good position

By Sam Mellinger - Kansas City Star

"It's all there, showing more and more the harder you look.

Because that 2014 season wasn't all bad. Start there. Around Kansas City, the fact that the Chiefs beat both Super Bowl teams was repeated to the point of comedy, but it does mean something.

The Chiefs' point differential suggested they should've won 10 games, for starters, but more than that they played virtually the entire season without their two best run defenders and still gave up fewer points than any team in the league save the Seahawks.

The draft, which ended Saturday, concludes what has to be seen as a very successful offseason for the Chiefs. They used their picks to strengthen weaknesses, from secondary depth to the offensive line to wide receiver, most notably."    READ MORE…

3. One of the greats: Waco High's Derrick Johnson to be honored

By Brice Cherry - Waco Tribune

"Some first impressions last longer than others. Countless introductions are forgettable, for it's hard to dazzle at first glance.

Even nearly two decades later, Johnny Tusa has no problem recalling his first impression of Derrick Johnson.

Tusa first laid eyes on Johnson back in the fall of 1997. Then the head football coach at Waco High, Tusa spotted a tall freshman who was rail-thin but broad-shouldered, the kind of adaptable frame that could be potentially imposing after some time in the weight room. But it wasn't until Tusa saw Johnson run that he was certain the kid could be special."    READ MORE…

4. School to keep Marcus Peters from 10 of Chiefs' offseason practices

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Cornerback Marcus Peters, the Kansas City Chiefs' first-round draft pick, will be unable to participate in 10 offseason practices because of NFL rules prohibiting players from practicing while their college is in session.

Peters attended the University of Washington, where classes will be in session until June 12.

Peters can participate in the Chiefs' rookie minicamp May 16-18 and their full squad minicamp June 16 through 18. But he is not allowed to participate in the 10 practices the Chiefs will hold between May 26 and June 12."    READ MORE…
