1. Chiefs are dream destination for rookie tight end James O'Shaughnessy

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"For prospective NFL tight ends, few opportunities are as enticing as the one presented by the Chiefs.

Fifth-round draft choice James O'Shaughnessy — who will battle for the No. 2 tight-end spot in his first professional season — said as much Thursday after the final practice before veterans report to training camp on Friday.

"From the numbers, it seems so," O'Shaughnessy said of the lucrative tight-end prospects in Kansas City. "So far, I've been very fortunate to receive a lot of passes and opportunities in practice, so I would say it's probably the best team to be a part of if you're a tight end.""    READ MORE…

2. Rookie CBs Marcus Peters, Steven Nelson try to recreate history for Chiefs

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Good things seem to come in twos for the Kansas City Chiefs when it comes to the draft and defensive backs. That's a positive omen for their two rookie cornerbacks, Marcus Peters and Steven Nelson.

The Chiefs have traditionally had a lot of success when they've picked a couple of defensive backs in the same draft. Their last drafted defensive back to reach the Pro Bowl was Eric Berry. The Chiefs also in that 2010 draft selected another safety, Kendrick Lewis, who would go on to become a starter.

Then there was 2008, when the Chiefs drafted eventual Pro Bowler Brandon Flowers and another solid starting cornerback, Brandon Carr. Going back to 1996, the Chiefs drafted Jerome Woods, an eventual Pro Bowler, and Reggie Tongue, an eventual starter."    READ MORE…

3. Rookie Rakeem Nunez‐Roches brings versatility to defensive line

By Chris Bumbaca - Kansas City Star

"Nunez‐Roches, a defensive lineman and sixth‐round draft pick out of Southern Miss, has moved to a new city and is now a professional football player.

And now he'll have to face new opponents, a challenge he's excited to tackle, just like an opposing running back in the backfield.

Facing new competition is something Nunez‐Roches will have to adjust to as well. Nunez‐Roches said his familiarity with his opponents helped him plan his rushes. That affected whether he would shoot the gaps or bull rush right up field.

"I knew all the backfield sets and certain formations, and what they were able to do," Nunez‐Roches said. "So if I felt like he was going a certain way, I'd shoot the gap. If I felt like he was playing down, I'd play the block down.""    READ MORE…

4. Chiefs sign former Raytown High School running back

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"The Chiefs have signed a player to get back to boost their thinning running back corps, and he's someone people from Raytown might remember.

On Thursday, the club announced that it has signed Central Missouri running back LaVance Taylor to get back to the offseason roster max of 90.

Taylor, who graduated from Raytown High School, rushed 245 times for 1,918 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2014 for Central Missouri."    READ MORE…
