Chiefs Cheering For Their School In Final 4 from The Mothership

The NCAA Men's Final Four continues later tonight with the national semifinal games, matching Wisconsin vs Kentucky and Florida vs Connecticut. While the tournament has again captivated the nation, four members of the Kansas City Chiefs will be more than glued to their TVs for the games, cheering on the school they played for in college.

Grandview Students Visit Arrowhead from The Mothership

Earlier this week, the Chiefs hosted 30 students from Grandview High School for a tour and a chance to learn about the departments within the Chiefs organization. The students visited The Center for Sports Medicine at The University of Kansas Hospital Training Complex, Arrowhead Stadium and the Chiefs Practice Facility to learn the responsibilities of some of the employees.

Eric Fisher Would Be No Prize In 2014 Draft from ESPN

Just how much of a consolation prize he was comes into better view by looking at what was available in the drafts immediately before and after. If the Chiefs had the first pick in the 2012 draft, they would now be quarterbacked by Andrew Luck.

If they had the top choice this year they could choose from a bounty that includes a player with uncommon pass-rush skills (South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney) or a can't-miss wide receiver (Clemson's Sammy Watkins), among others.

Healthy Tight Ends The Key To Chiefs Offense from Chiefs Spin

Former Eagles tight end Chad Lewis, a three-time Pro Bowl selection and second-team All-Pro under Reid, highlighted in a phone interview the significance of losing Kelce.

"Whenever Andy (Reid) drafts someone, he's looking for that player to have an impact on the team," Lewis said. "When they get hurt, it's a hole there. Even though they're probably not going to be the starter right off the bat, they're drafted and brought in to bring some juice to have an impact."

Jeremy Gallon Eyeing The Next Level from Maize n Brew

While the list of potential suitors for Gallon isn't very long at this point, he did mention that he recently conducted a workout with the New England Patriots and will also potentially set up workouts with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs in the near future.

Offseason Intrigue: Questions For Each Team Before NFL Draft from CBS Sports

Kansas City Chiefs: Is it fair, after making such historical gains a year ago, to expect a fall back a bit this season? The Chiefs will play a much tougher schedule and they did not finish as strong as they started a year ago. When Alex Smith's new contract gets done, will it be the kind of deal that truly binds him to the team for the foreseeable future, or will the team be able to navigate out of it quickly if need be (a la the Schaub deal in Houston)? Few teams got cherry picked in free agency to the degree the Chiefs did, and they'll need to address the ability to get to the quarterback in the draft, possibly more than once.

2014 NFL Mock Draft: Browns Will Trade To Get Their QB (Bortles) from CBS Sports

23. Kansas City Chiefs -- Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame: The Chiefs lost Tyson Jackson in free agency and Tuitt brings a lot to the table. He has more versatility than his teammate Louis Nix. Tuitt could be more disruptive in a pass rush than Jackson was for the Chiefs.

Jim Brown Doesn't See Many Great Runners In Today's NFL from ProFootballTalk

"Who are the running backs who aren't getting the ball today who should be?" Brown said. "Adrian Peterson isn't running by committee. Nobody is going to tell me Marshawn Lynch can't run. He's strong as an ox. I don't have the answers, but it doesn't bother me. I don't measure things by the average, which I know writers would have to look at things the way they have to, but I don't have to. I'm looking at the exceptions to the rule, not the rule. . . . As we sit here, I can't name seven great runners. Can you?"
