Kiper Doesn't Expect Any QBs To Be First-Round Picks from KC Star

"I couldn't put a first-round quarterback in, because I don't think one is going to go in the first seven or eight (picks) and after that, nobody is looking for a quarterback," Kiper said. "There's no team after seven or eight looking for a quarterback. Now the teams that are: Kansas City, obviously. You think about other teams like Arizona and Buffalo. But they're second-round possibilities.

"Will that change after the Senior Bowl and combine? We'll have to see how those venues end up."

Q&A With Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton from The Mothership

Q: What have you seen as far as talent that's already here on the defensive side of the ball?

SUTTON: "Yeah, really this week, I just got in here at the beginning of the week, really Tuesday, so I've been sitting here the last couple days trying to go through the players and of course you know Gary Gibbs and Emmitt Thomas have been here so we kind of worked our way through the DBs and linebackers a little bit - haven't gotten through them all by any stretch - but just kind of becoming familiar with them. I think we've got some pieces in place and really, honestly no different than any of the other 31 teams, we probably have some areas that we probably have to try to improve on. But I think first, trying to learn our guys and then you sit down with the coaches and kind of go through the system we want to put together I think we'll have a better understanding of our talent.

Chip Kelly Got Endorsement On Eagles From Andy Reid from USA Today

"The fact Andy reached out to me and told me about his experience here told me what this organization is about," Kelly said of Reid, now the Kansas City Chiefs head coach.

In typical Andy fashion, he said, 'Just be yourself and you'll be fine.'"

3rd-Annual Tecmo Tourney Set For Saturday from Ground Zero

You also can also see a Mt. Tecmo Rushmore candidate, former Kansas City Chiefs star Christian Okoye, play the game for the first time -- against himself. For Knobbe and his Tecmo kind, it is a life-altering scene. As Okoye's friend uses Okoye to run over the Denver Broncos to the tune of 19 carries for 388 yards, the Nigerian Nightmare utters a line that wouldn't seem out of place in a Charlie Kaufman script, "Man, I can't even stop me man."

"He is priceless," Knobbe said.
