Players To Watch In Saturday's Senior Bowl from KC Star
The Senior Bowl is Saturday (3 p.m. on NFL Network), another chance for the Chiefs, who have the No. 1 overall pick, to evaluate players before the NFL Draft starts April 25.
Though it is considered college football's premier all-star game, most if not all of the draft's top prospects either skip the chance to participate or are ineligible to play because they are underclassmen.
But many lower-round prospects will participate and there are plenty of players to keep an eye on. Here are the game's top quarterback prospects, top players at other positions where the Chiefs have a need, as well as a couple of prospects from area colleges.
Ask anybody who the NFL comeback player of the year is, and they will give you one of two answers: Peyton Manning or Adrian Peterson. Manning missed the entire 2011 NFL season due to a fourth neck surgery. Peterson on the hand, underwent offseason leg surgery because of a torn ACL and MCL suffered late last season against the Washington Redskins.
But there's another comeback hero - Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. Not much was expected from Charles after he tore his ACL when he was pushed out of bounds by a Detroit Lions defender in just the second game of the 2011 season. Charles would not return in 2011 as the Chiefs put him on injured reserve.

Bough Is Out At Jackson County Sports Complex Authority from Kansas City Business Journal
Steve Bough's tenure at the Jackson County Sports Complex Authority was short-lived.
Gov. Jay Nixon appointed the Kansas City personal injury lawyer in August, but Bough had to be confirmed by the Senate.
As it became clear he did not have support to be confirmed, Bough withdrew his nomination, saying it had been blocked by Sen. Paul LeVota, D-Independence. The two reportedly have had friction in the past.
In 1970, The Only Interactive 'NFL Experience' Was On Bourbon Street from The Town Talk
"For the most part, we didn't go out during the week of the game," said quarterback Lenny "The Cool" Dawson, Robinson's roommate, who won the most valuable player award for Super Bowl IV and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
"Once the game was over though, that was a different story," Dawson said. "I know some of our guys didn't get any sleep that night. New Orleans doesn't stop."
The date was Jan. 11, 1970, and it was far from a Chamber of Commerce afternoon. At the time, New Orleans represented the northernmost city ever to host the big game.
It was jacket weather. Skies were dreary. Showers during the week had made the Tulane field soggy.
Perfect conditions, as it turned out, for Hank Stram's Kansas City Chiefs to call the timely 65 Toss Power Trap -- immortalized forever by NFL Films because of the miked-up Stram's gleeful narrative.
Belcher's Mother Moves Closer To Overseeing Estate from KC Star
The mother of Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher, who killed his girlfriend and then himself, moved a step closer Friday to getting custody of their daughter and overseeing the estate.
A Jackson County Circuit Court probate commissioner on Friday granted an "application for letters of administration" to Cheryl Shepherd. The order is contingent upon the filing and approval of a $1 million surety bond, which is considered a standard requirement to ensure that the estate and any heirs are protected.
