New, comment

Good morning, Chiefs fans! Hope everyone is well this morning. Another light day for Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

If the lockout drags on, however, Charles said he'd "just travel and run track," the sport he dominated in high school, with the fastest 110 and 300 hurdle times in the nation his senior year at Memorial and also was part of a record-setting 800-meter relay team as a sophomore.

He's even talked about running at the Texas Relays next weekend in Austin with three other NFL stars like Adrian Peterson, DeSean Jackson and Chris Johnson.

Reviewing first-round picks is fun, but it takes more than a top pick to deem a draft class successful. So what about the other seven draft slots that the Chiefs currently occupy? What has the franchise gotten out of those picks in the past?

Now that the 2011 NFL Draft order is official, we can dig deep into franchise history books. Without further adieu, here's the complete in-house history of every pick the Chiefs own in 2011.

This weekend, Clarkson, now 78, is at the Final Four in Houston, camera in hand, shooting his 56th Final Four as a contract photographer for Sports Illustrated and as the official photographer of the NCAA. Clarkson's first title game was in 1952, when he was a 19-year-old student journalist covering the University of Kansas...

...He has photographed six Olympics, countless baseball games and football games (he was at Super Bowl I as the team photographer for the Kansas City Chiefs), but his favorite sport to shoot has always been college basketball.

After going undrafted in 2009, Wolfert worked out for the Bears and Chiefs. Steve Hoffman, Kansas City's special-teams coach, didn't mince words with his evaluation.

"He wasn't impressed with my kickoffs," said Wolfert, who set a Football Bowl Subdivision career accuracy record, converting 94.9 percent of his field goals and PATs at Missouri. "He told me, ‘I'm looking for a guy who can just pound the ball out of the back of the end zone. And then I can teach you how to kick field goals.'

"I was the opposite of that. I can kick the field goals. I have plenty of records of doing that a high percentage rate."

The Bengals might be more likely to trade their No. 4 pick if they don't plan to take a quarterback. The top quarterbacks in the draft - Auburn's Cam Newton and Missouri's Blaine Gabbert - are projected to be among the top four selections.

There could be a mad scramble in the draft order once the Kansas City Chiefs go on the clock with the 21st pick. Last year, four trades were made involving the 22nd selection or lower in the first round.

It's that time of year.

Until the 2011 NFL draft is completed, you'll hear draft analysts spout scouting lingo.

Some of the terms you'll understand, some you won't.

But if you really want to be a "draftnik," you'll need to get a better idea of what they mean.
