1. How much of a draftnik is Paul Rudd? He recorded it to watch Chiefs pick

By Mike Nahrstedt - Fox Sports Kansas City

"Noted Kansas City Chiefs and Royals fan Paul Rudd had a confession to make when he appeared Tuesday on the nationally syndicated Rich Eisen Show to promote his new movie Ant-Man: He's such an NFL Draft nerd, he not only watched all seven rounds, he recorded the first round when he couldn't be home to watch it live.

And warned people not to tell him who the Chiefs picked until he could watch it later. With his son, Jack.

"My son, who is now 10 and also a die-hard Chiefs fan ... we had made a plan, we're going to watch the draft together," said Rudd, who sported an Eric Berry "Berry Strong" T-shirt on the program, then changed into a Jamaal "Charles in Charge" shirt. "We did. We watched the entire draft, minus that first round, together.""    READ MORE…

2. American Royal Barbecue takes its World Series to Arrowhead

By Austin Alonzo - Kansas City Business Journal

"American Royal Chairman John Mitchell Jr. said the barbecue competition is moving because the logistics of hosting the event at Kemper Arena's parking lot no longer worked.

"We just ran out of space," Mitchell said. "We love being down there. It's been great for us for 36 years, it's a quirky space our teams have come to love. But at the end of the day, we simply don't have the space to meet the demand."

Mitchell said the move will help grow the event, make it easier for visitors and competitors to park and improve the event's overall logistics. He said there's an "almost unlimited" amount of space at the complex. He anticipates two parking lots will host the actual World Series of Barbecue, while one will be home to a festival and four will be available for parking."    READ MORE…

4. GM Dorsey: We think our rookie ILBs will provide some speed

By Mike Nahrstedt - Fox Sports Kansas City

"Derrick Johnson is coming off surgery. And it seems like the Chiefs have been searching for his running mate on the inside of K.C.'s defense forever.

The search might be over after general manager John Dorsey took two inside guys in last weekend's draft. Dorsey thinks both Ramik Wilson and D.J. Alexander represent speedier options for the Chiefs going forward."    READ MORE…

5. Randy Gregory gets star tattoo to show allegiance to Cowboys

By Todd Archer - ESPN

"There are plenty of ways to show allegiance, but the rookie linebacker has chosen to go the almost-permanent route with his tattoo.

The Cowboys certainly have hope right now that their chancy selection of Gregory, who failed a drug test at the NFL scouting combine and has had other off-field concerns, leads to an almost-permanent relationship as well."    READ MORE…
