Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 4/10

Good morning! Once again we have today's Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Today's headlines includes an important story about a young boy battling leukemia and the drive that is happening to find a donor. I am including the link to The National Bone Marrow Donor Program so anyone interested can look into it. I highly recommend joining the registry. I have been in it for about 20 years now and was able to donate once to a middle school boy who's only hope was a transplant. That boy started college this past fall. A great reward for a couple of days of discomfort. Give the site a look and see if it's something you can do. Thanks.

Draft Spotlight - Day 17: Matt Barkley from The Mothership

Matt Barkley is very quick to admit two things; he does not regret deciding to return to USC for his senior season and two, he disagrees with those who say he doesn't have a strong enough arm to compete in the NFL.

Following a spectacular 2011 season, when Barkley started all 12 games, going 308-of-446 (69.1%) for 3,528 yards with 39 TDs and seven INTs, he opted to pass up the NFL for one more season on campus. Photo Gallery: Cheerleaders Getting Ready For Football

Kansas City Chiefs Reportedly Want OL Ryan Lilja Back from

If he does return it will be to add depth and insurance to the line. Hudson is slotted to return at center,Jeff Allen and Jon Asamoah are returning at the guard spots and the Chiefs also signed Geoff Schwartz who can play both guard and tackle. However, Allen struggled last season after being forced into the lineup as a rookie and Lilja could be great insurance if Allen doesn't improve as projected.

Twitter Tuesday: Talking Royals Optimism, Bullpen And Chiefs from KC Star

@Sniper_Jones35 Do you think that the #chiefs best chances are to trade the top pick?

My guess - that's all it is - is that they'd like to. But guys, remember, just like the Chiefs would like to trade out of the pick because there isn't a projected Hall of Famer waiting there ... other teams aren't knocking each other over to trade into the pick because there isn't a projected Hall of Famer waiting there. I know we've said this a bunch, but it really is the worst year for the Chiefs to be picking first.

Anyway, like I say, my guess is they'd like to. And my guess is they won't be able to.
