2015 NFL Scouting Combine: Day Four from The Mothership

Many analysts felt Phillip Dorsett, a wide receiver from the University of Miami, had a realistic chance of breaking Chris Johnson's 40-yard dash record of 4.24.

In his two attempts, Dorsett finished with scores of 4.35 and 4.33.

The record stands pat for now, but Dorsett led the 2015 wide receiver pack

Intriguing defensive backs catch Chiefs' eye at Combine from Chiefs Digest

The Chiefs would be wise to plan ahead and potentially bolster depth with youth at safety and cornerback in the upcoming draft. But the trick is finding the right fit among this year's crop of defensive backs.

"It's not strong," CBS Sports and NFLDraftScout.com draft analyst Dane Brugler said of the safety position. "There's one guy at the top and that's Landon Collins. After him, there's a lot of differing opinions who that next safety is on the board. Some people think it could be (Gerod) Holliman from Louisville, Chris Hackett from TCU. There's a lot of different names out there, a lot of different flavors."

The Chiefs apparently agreed because they are exploring Hackett and Holliman at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Mailbag: Why shouldn't Chiefs consider Green-Beckham at 18th pick? from ESPN

The allegations of crimes for Dorial Green-Beckham and Jameis Winston are horrible on their own and don't deserve to be compared. I think teams have the obligation to know the facts and understand what kind of person they're dealing with before making them a part of their respective communities. Green-Beckham and Winston aren't necessarily being punished for this scrutiny and for dropping in the draft (if that's indeed what happens to them). It's a question of whether teams want to use a first-round draft pick on what may be a huge risk.

Community focus of first SAISD Hall of Fame class from The San Antonio News-Express

The other inductees included Gary Green, R.A. Johnson, Claud H. Kellam, Paul Martin, Tommy Nobis, Victor Rodriguez and Kyle Rote.

Several inductees paid tribute to the district's coaches, teachers and administrators.

"Everything I learned came from the SAISD," said Green, the head football coach at Sam Houston High School who starred for the school as a running back in the early 1970s before becoming an All-America cornerback at Baylor and an All-Pro defensive back for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams.

Brandon Marshall's iffy status makes WR potential need for Bears from The Chicago Sun-Times

"The way high school football is going, college football's going, there's a lot more passing of the football," Snead said. "So the development of wide receivers -- coaches put some of their best athletes, at a young age, running routes and catching balls. That's probably the evolution that you're seeing."

Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey called it a trend.

"Guys are becoming more skilled and have more depth in running routes, catching the ball," Dorsey said. "They understand there's a balance within that position to make some strides in the NFL. If you go around the country and kind of see these high school programs, they're starting to play this very similar offense and they're more prepared to get to the college ranks and into the pro ranks as well to play the game."

Business briefs for Feb. 22 from The Hutchinson News

Lyons Public Library and the Rice County Historical Society will host a joint fundraiser celebrating sports and the way sports build and unite communities.

This fundraising event will feature Chase High School graduate and retired NFL player Paul Coffman as guest speaker. Coffman played collegiate ball for Kansas State University before signing as an undrafted rookie free agent for the Green Bay Packers in 1978. His career for the Packers spanned from 1978 to 1985. He later played for the Kansas City Chiefs (1986-1987) and the Minnesota Vikings (1988) and was inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame in 1994.

Bengals expressing some interest in Hawaii running back Joey Iosefa from Cincy Jungle

Per the report, the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins have also expressed interest.

A live mic at the NFL Draft Combine caught a coach giving R-rated advice from SB Nation

It looks like the person on screen pictured giving the quarterbacks advice is the one who says this, but we think the audio actually comes from Kansas City Chiefs assistant head coach and wide receivers coach David Culley, who was the only coach mic'd up on the field. If you need any confirmation, just listen to any video of Culley talking.

The Best Ever? Montana vs. Brady from Sports Blog

Well, of course I have some degree of partiality towards a QB like Montana, who was the primary catalyst to the best NFL team on which I played: that being the 1993 Kansas City Chiefs.   With some brilliant plays, and strategically timed leadership demands of us, Joe was able to lead that team within one game of competing for a World Championship.  As a matter of fact, had it not been for a brutal sack by Bruce Smith that drove Joe's head into Buffalo's frozen Astro Turf just before half-time of the AFC Championship Game, I truly believe we would have gone on to win and play Dallas the next week in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately Joe never played another down in that game.  Ironically, one of my claims to fame during the 1st season of my NFL career was a statement spouted from the mouth of a clearly concussed Montana during an ESPN interview following that game. Joe, with a straight face, shared on national TV, "I knew something was wrong because I couldn't remember Tim Watson's phone number!" Well, just to clarify, I don't recall Joe ever knowing my number.

Tracy Session shot down in Long Beach before he could rebuild his life from The Contra Costa Times

Tracy Session was paving a road to redemption when he was gunned down Sept. 29, 2003, in an alley near Coolidge Street and Obispo Avenue. He was 37 years old.

Already a grandfather, he had survived the mayhem of inner city life and was looking to distance himself from a troubled past by working with at-risk youths and attending community college. But before he could rebuild his life, Session was shot several times in the chest that September evening...

At the time of his death, the couple had two children together. Session also was father to two children from a previous relationship and was the stepfather to three of Vivian Session's kids.

Travionte Session, who was 14 at the time of his father's death, had a stint as a wide receiver for the NFL Raiders. His step-brother, Samie Parker, now 33, played wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, and their sister, Trenishia Session, who was 11 when her father was killed, is studying criminal justice at Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson.
