1. What to expect from Chiefs' offensive draft picks

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Training camp begins, sort of, for the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday when they start a three-day camp for rookies and quarterbacks at Missouri Western State University. The rest of the players report to camp on Friday with the first full-squad practice a day later.

With the rookies getting started soon, we'll take a look at reasonable expectations for their draft picks this season. We'll do the four offensive draft picks here. Look for a post on the five defensive draft picks, including first-round cornerback Marcus Peters, on Tuesday."    READ MORE…

Chiefs Load Equipment for Training Camp

As the 2015 Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp nears the team begin preparations for the move to their temporary home at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri.

2. Chiefs rookies and quarterbacks will report to Missouri Western on Tuesday

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"The third year of the Andy Reid‐John Dorsey regime is set to commence, and after a busy offseason full of wheeling and dealing, the goal is once again clear — playoffs or bust.

But following a 9‐7 campaign in which they narrowly missed the playoffs, the Chiefs have plenty of work ahead of them if they want to return to the postseason. That process will begin in earnest Tuesday, when the Chiefs' rookies and quarterbacks report to Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph for the start of training camp.

The Chiefs will hold their first practice on Wednesday at 8:45 a.m., though that practice — and the next two, on Thursday and Friday — will be closed to the public."    READ MORE…

3. Chiefs' camp to-do list: Get Marcus Peters ready to play immediately

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"The Kansas City Chiefs have enough cornerback depth that, until last week, they could have afforded carrying first-round draft pick Marcus Peters in a lesser role during his rookie season.

Not any more. Last week's news that veteran cornerback Sean Smith would be suspended for the season's first three games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy greatly increases the Chiefs' need for immediate help from Peters.

Smith will be able to practice during training camp, which begins Saturday at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri. The Chiefs still need to give plenty of first-team snaps to Peters, who could step into the No. 1 cornerback role in 2016 if Smith leaves after this season as a free agent."    READ MORE…

4. Will Shields had an unlikely mentor in his rookie season with the Chiefs

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Former Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Will Shields will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 8. I have done a few recent interviews with Shields, and between now and his induction I'll share some of his thoughts on various subjects.

Previously, Shields shared the regrets he had about his career, and they're not what you might think.

Reggie McElroy played 13 NFL seasons as an offensive tackle in the 1980s and 90s, but he spent only a short time with the Chiefs. He played in eight games in his only season with the Chiefs, in 1993, and started one game."    READ MORE…

5. Travis Kelce, Justin Houston Rank Among Top Five at Their Positions in Madden 16

By BJ Kissel -

"That success has put Kelce on the map for a lot of people who didn't know what he was all about.

For the folks over at EA Sports, Kelce ranks as the No. 5 overall tight end in Madden 16. He sits behind Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten and Greg Olsen.

Here's what they had to say about Kelce's ranking:

"After missing his entire rookie season due to injury, Kelce shined in his on-field debut in 2014. He brings 89 Catching, 89 Jumping, 88 Spectacular Catch, 87 Catch in Traffic, 88 Release, and 81 Route Running. He also features 85 Run Block, tops among tight ends.""    READ MORE…
