Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 4/6


(photo source

Your Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Another light day, with some tweets about last night's basketball game. Also, see how little the guys at Big Blue View know about our team.

The 2010 NFL Draft is just two weeks and two days away. The St. Louis Rams are already on the clock with this year’s first choice.

They absolutely, positively, without a doubt must select QB Sam Bradford. For the Rams to do anything else would be a football folly of stupendous proportions. There is no other possible scenario for St. Louis. None.

The last time the Rams franchise selected a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft was 46 years ago. That year the Los Angeles Rams drafted Bill Munson with the seventh selection of the 1964 Draft.

Rams Must Take Bradford … Tuesday Cup O’Chiefs from Bob Gretz

THE RIGHT 53? – No way, no how. Physically talented, Williams is lacking in other characteristics.

What he said – "I think I’m ready to play at the next level.  I think I can compete out there, but it’s hard to tell. The biggest adjustment is going against corners who have the same talent as me and adjusting to that speed."

THE RIGHT 53? – As he went through his career with the Cornhuskers, Asante became more of a leader and was willing to do it vocally. He shows a love for the game and a dedication to improving both mentally and physically.

What he said – "When NFL teams take a look at me, I want them to know that my smarts play a big role in my success on the field. I would also say that my athletic abilities, toughness and patience on the field are my greatest strengths. As a safety, you have to be the most patient guy out there, be a leader and make the defensive calls. It’s all about reading and reacting and keeping the play in front of you."

THE RIGHT 53? – Leadership skills, strong work ethic, availability, versatility in being able to block or catch – all those things that the Chiefs are looking for in a player.

What he said – "I consider my versatility to be my strongest asset as a player.  I really tried to become a complete tight end and contribute to the running game, but I still consider my reliable hands and moving the chains on 3rd downs to be the most consistent and strongest part of my game."

2005: Derrick Johnson, OLB, Texas (Kansas City Chiefs -- Did not start a single game for Kansas city in 2009. Johnson has never stepped into a starring role, and appears to be out of favor with the Chiefs.

With the 15th pick ... a historical look from Big Blue View

Editors note: They also call Albert a bust in the comments. Lots of bad info over there.

Clint Finley has been around football his entire life.

Clint's father and Memorial head football coach Mickey Finley has been in the coaching profession since Clint was born, and Clint has made no secret of his desire to do the same...

...Finley was an all-state quarterback at Cuero and played safety at Nebraska. He played in the NFL for the Kansas City Chiefs, and began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant for his father at Arlington High.

He was an assistant coach under his father at Cleburne and Schulenburg before joining the Memorial staff.

JPosnanski So, um, uh, happy Opening Day Royals fans! Whew. They couldn't wait ONE GAME before playing like that?

SI_PeterKing RT @FootballFan9216: Trent Dilfer says Bradford overrated. Says CMcCoy is better ... Have heard this. Respect Trent, but he works with Colt.

SI_PeterKing RT @gtark04: Chances eric berry is still available for the browns at #7? ... Good. I don't see him going at 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
