USA TODAY Sports

Good morning! Not a lot out there this morning, but here is your Kansas City Chiefs news. Ten days to the NFL Draft. Enjoy!

History Of No. 1s: Overall, Top Pick Is As Likely To Bust As Star from CBS Sports

When a franchise has as many holes as Kansas City does, how much can one player help?

There's an even bigger issue: it's the bust ratio of the top overall pick. It's astoundingly high, perhaps higher than generally known.

A look at the top overall picks since the 1970 merger shows a mixed bag, at best. There have obviously been Hall of Fame talents and all-time greats selected No. 1 but also busts who would only get to Canton via bus ticket. A quick breakdown:

Draft Spotlight - Day 22: Sheldon Richardson from The Mothership

Sheldon Richardson's stock has been rising from his 2012 campaign, Missouri's inaugural season as a member of the Southeastern Conference.

Compared to all of the other SEC defensive lineman, Richardson finished second in tackles (75), including 10.5 tackles for loss and four sacks. His combination of size, strength and athleticism have him included in talks about the top defensive tackle prospects in this month's draft.

"If somebody wants to move up and get a Dee Milliner, then you would move down if you're Kansas City and still get a left tackle," ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said during a recent conference call with NFL writers.

"I mean, you can move down from one to five and still get Eric Fisher, move further down and get Lane Johnson. There's some flexibility down to seven for them to move and still get a left tackle. If they don't, I think Luke Joeckel would go Number 1 overall."

Anders Devotes Time To Tors From Missouri from The Galveston County Daily News

Anders was named the Galveston schools' athletic director and head football coach at Ball High at the end of March.

He is wrapping up work as the director of athletics at the Kansas City, Mo., public school district, but he has high anticipation about returning to his hometown.

"It feels great, and I'm really excited to be able to come back and be a Tor again," he said.

Anders played football at Ball High School before moving on to the University of Houston and the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs. He enjoyed a 10-year professional career and was named to the Pro Bowl three times.

ATL Mailbag: Which QB Will Establish The 4k/1k Club? from NFL.com

What team(s) that didn't make the playoffs this past year, has the best chance of making a deep run this year? -- Alex Cole @ACole_5

I like the vibe the Philadelphia Eagles have going right now. It was time for Andy Reid to move on, andChip Kelly has the potential to turn that ship around quickly.

Speaking of Reid, how about the Kansas City Chiefs? Plenty of talent on that roster, and Alex Smith is an obvious upgrade at quarterback. Add left tackle Luke Joeckel (the presumptive No. 1 overall pick) and we can definitely see the Chiefs competing for a wild-card spot.
