One-On-One With Chiefs GM John Dorsey from The Mothership

3) What is your overall evaluation of the entire 2014 NFL Draft Class?

"It's another sign of the times, larger receivers, who will display the unique ability to have size and speed to play this game. We've always believed that size matters and I think this class is no different from the classes of the last couple years."

Chiefs Weekly from The Mothership

The NFL Scouting Combine has been the focus of everyone's attention this past week and has tons of coverage. Hear from Chiefs General Manager John DorseyHead Coach Andy Reid, as well as the team's scouts as they discuss the evaluation process of a potential NFL player.

Plus, the offseason show, Chiefs Red and Gold will start on March 8th on KCTV5 at 10:30PM. To find out more information, click here.

Now, let's see what's going on in the world of social media.

Clowney's 40 Wows In DL/LB Combine Drills from The Mothership

We all knew Clowney was fast, but he proved it to any possible skeptics on Monday, clocking a 4.53 40-yard dash.

Clowney was one of the players I was curious to watch and hear from at the combine. Let's be honest, the guy's life hasn't been the same, after his crushing hit against Michigan's Vincent Smith, which went viral within seconds.

Keeping Dontari Poe Fresh Boosts Chiefs Defense from Chiefs Spin

However, one must consider football is a game initiated and won at the line of scrimmage. Additionally, consider the Chiefs recently experienced one of the most horrific defensive collapses in NFL playoff history.

Factoring those two areas opens a strong argument for the Chiefs to focus on upgrading their defensive line and its ability to pressure the quarterback.

The team could take a big step in achieving both areas by acquiring a quality backup for Pro Bowl nose tackle Dontari Poe.

Kansas City Chiefs 2014 Offseason Preview from CBS Sports

Ridiculously premature prediction for 2014

Here's a list of all the team's Kansas City plays in 2014 that had a losing record in 2013: St. Louis, Tennessee, Buffalo and Oakland twice. That's only five games. That means the rest of Kansas City's schedule is hard. As a matter of fact, it's so hard that it's ranked seventh toughest going into next season. Strength of schedule can definitely fluctuate -- bad teams from the prior season can be good and good teams can be bad -- but it's hard to see that happening with most of the good teams on Kansas City's schedule. The Chiefs play five games against teams that have been good consistently and should be good next year: New England, San Francisco, Seattle and Denver twice.

What I'm trying to say here is that even if Kansas City fields a better team next season, they might not end the year with a better record. Actually, I'm not trying to say that, that's exactly what I'm saying.

Predicted record: 9-7

Free-Agent report: DE Tyson Jackson from ESPN

The Chiefs shouldn't give Jackson a big contract. They did that once out of necessity when he was picked near the top of the draft and he's hogged a disproportionate amount of their salary cap ever since. He's worth bringing back at the right price but not at a cost they're not comfortable with. If he leaves, the Chiefs can either play Bailey or a draft pick and perhaps get as much production at a more reasonable price.

Interesting Choice: Schwartz Or Asamoah? from ESPN

The easy answer is to bring them both back. That would give the Chiefs a solid middle three to their offensive line, including center Rodney Hudson. Since Schwartz and Asamoah shared the right guard spot last season, the Chiefs could switch one (probably Schwartz) to the left side and move Jeff Allen to a backup spot.

The problem with this is that the Chiefs won't have unlimited funds to solve the problem.

'Shining With The Chiefs!' - Sixth Annual Lighthouse Gala In El Dorado Springs from The Nevada Daily Mail

Kansas City Chiefs' former standout kicker Nick Lowery is the special guest at this year's Lighthouse Gala April 12. The annual event raises funds to support Lighthouse, a non-profit that focuses on youth in the arts.

This year's gala is at the FBC Family Life Center at 500 South Main, El Dorado Springs, and begins at 6 p.m.

Branden Albert A High Priority For Cardinals, Dolphins from

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Cardinals and the Miami Dolphins view Albert as a "high priority" in free agency, according to multiple team sources. The Chiefs also haven't ruled out re-signing Albert, despite having his replacement on the roster in last year's No. 1 pick Eric Fisher.

Reality: You Can't Run A Sub 5.0 Forty from FOX Sports

Until you see this up close and personal you truly have no conception what this size and speed combination looks like.

One of my favorite quotes in this regard is from Chiefs guard Geoff Schwartz who is 6'7 and weighs in the neighborhood of 335 pounds. "I'm really athletic for someone of my size...sort of." I love the pause there. Do you know how many guys there are in America who are even capable of running at 6'7 and 335 pounds? Keeping in mind, for instance, that if you are 6'2 or taller you are taller than 98% of men in the world. The answer is very few. And no I'm not just writing this because Schwartz beat me deep for a touchdown on a pump and go route yesterday afternoon. This is made all the worse because the quarterback wasn't Peyton Manning but Texas defensive tackle Frank Okam.

Michael Vick Could Land With New York Jets from

Finally, file this under "For What It's Worth." Rex Ryan, along with brother Rob, spent time in the box of Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid on Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine. Reid, of course, was Vick's coach in Philadelphia from 2009 to 2012.

You think No. 7 came up?

'The Bachelor' Predictions: Who Will Juan Pablo Pick In Week 8? Plus Will Renee Say 'I Love You'? from Latin Times

Next up is Nikki and like Clare's hometown date, Juan Pablo and the rumored winner of Season 18 of "the bachelor" enjoy a lunch just the two of them before meeting the family. Nikki hails from Kansas City so instead of a picnic, the couple enjoys BBQ Missouri style. Nikki and JP have lunch at Oklahoma's Joes BBQ before introducing her family. Nikki's family is easy to get along with and their visit to Kansas City is pleasant and lacks drama, maybe that's why Juan Pablo is a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs?

10 NFL Players Who Could Be Headed For A Contract Restructuring from The Huffington Post

The Chiefs can pick up $5,921,250 of cap room by turning $7.895 million of Bowe's base salary into a signing bonus. By restructuring, Bowe would become a potential 2015 cap casualty with post-June 1 treatment, so his cap hit could be taken in 2015 and 2016 if he has another season like 2013 (57 catches for 673 receiving yards).
