Mock Draft Roundup 3.0: Who Will the Chiefs Select at No. 28? from The Mothership

The newest mock drafts are out and despite the fact that we're still a week away from the beginning of free agency, that doesn't stop anyone from guessing what the Kansas City Chiefs might do with the No. 28 pick in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft.

With the combine now over, some players have moved up after their performance in Indianapolis, while others have moved down.

What does it mean for the Chiefs?

Here are 19 of the latest mock drafts from experts across the internet:

Chiefs Ambassadors Join in the Celebration of Dr. Seuss from The Mothership

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." - Dr. Seuss

That was the theme Tuesday as the Kansas City Chiefs celebrated "Read Across America Day," which coincides with the 112th birthday of the famed children's literature author, Theodore "Dr. Seuss" Geisel.

In their 18th year participating in the celebration, the Chiefs and members of the Chiefs Community Caring Team swapped their hats and helmets for the red and white stovepipe chapeau and took part in honoring the author.

Jamaal Charles shares details of his recovery from torn ACL from The Kansas City Star

"I know the outside perspective can be that I was hurt last year, so I don't get as much respect as the person that played the whole season," he wrote. "It's about what you've done lately. You can have a great season one year, and then the next year not play the whole season, and you don't get the same benefit of the doubt. I know that comes with the territory. People feel like they don't know what I can do anymore. But that's motivation for me to show what I can do now."

Chiefs should re-sign some of their own, add Prince Amukamara from ESPN

Sign CB Prince Amukamara: Given that they don't appear willing to give their own starting cornerback, Sean Smith, the contract he wants, the Chiefs likely also won't be willing to break the bank for his replacement. But if they can get Amukamara from the Giants on what they consider a reasonable contract, the Chiefs should act. He's 26, two years younger than Smith. He would pair with Marcus Peters to give the Chiefs a solid pair of starting cornerbacks.

Cornerback Sean Smith

The Chiefs will have a difficult time replacing Smith if he leaves as a free agent. Smith didn't make many plays in 2015, but he didn't have to because rookie Marcus Peters was making so many on the other side. Smith's steady presence and down-to-down reliability made him the perfect fit with Peters. -- Adam Teicher

NFL players in Ann Arbor this week for new Business Academy from The Kansas City Star

The schedule includes time with school faculty, business leaders and players who have begun careers in the corporate world.

"Football doesn't last forever, and we have to realize that, and take the steps necessary to secure what our careers will be after we play," said Chris Conley, who just finished his rookie season with the Kansas City Chiefs. "We could play for 10 years, and still get out and be 32 years old."

After Wins, Royals Management Staff Remains Intact -€” And They're Happy About It from KCUR

The Chiefs finished the regular season with 10 wins in a row and their first playoff victory since 1994. In January, the Philadelphia Eagles named Doug Pederson, one of the assistant coaches for the Chiefs, their head coach.

But in the case of Kansas City Royals management, no one has gone anywhere. They celebrated a World Series championship last fall, and they've won back to-back American League pennants. Yet no one from the front office, nor manager Ned Yost's coaching staff, moved up the ladder for a better job elsewhere.

"Isn't that great?" asks Royals general manager Dayton Moore when confronted with that fact.

Ranking the free agents: Offensive linemen from DenverBroncos.com

11. Jeff Allen, Kansas City: After returning to the starting lineup, Allen was perhaps the Chiefs' best offensive lineman down the stretch, helping ensure their run game had no drop-off in the wake of Jamaal Charles' season-ending injury. Although he's worked at left and right tackle, Allen's best spot by far is left guard, and he's in position for a good contract after by far the best season of his career.

Payday coming

Three NFL players with area high-school ties could attract interest as unrestricted free agents.

LB Danny Trevathan (Leesburg/Kentucky) finished with 109 tackles and two interceptions in 15 games (all starts) for the Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos. DE Jaye Howard (Jones/UF) finished with 5 1/2 sacks and 57 tackles in 16 games (13 starts) for the Kansas City Chiefs. NT Ian Williams (Lyman/Notre Dame) started 16 games for the San Francisco 49ers and had 65 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.

Unrestricted free agents cannot sign with new teams until March 15.

Former member of Chiefs turns life toward ministry from The Daily Star-Journal

A former guard for the Kansas City Chiefs and other professional football teams, Colin Brown, grabbed a plate and stood in line for lunch with congregation members Sunday at First United Methodist Church, 141 E. Gay St.

"I feel very blessed to have played as long as I did and to get to go to the places I did to play," Brown said after sitting down to lunch with Senior Pastor Louie Lowe and other church members gathered at tables in the fellowship hall. "I had a good time while it lasted."

How is each franchise? Chiefs keep winning step from Univision [translated (poorly) from the original Spanish]

The 2015 Kansas City Chiefs season was above all very funny. Perhaps the runner Jamaal Charles is not agreed, but it was a fact that his absence from the team exploded wins, achieved an impressive winning streak that took them by surprise in the playoffs.

Of course it was not the fault of Charles, why not boot. It is likely that in the absence of skilled rider the team found unity and strength, the degree of binding 10 wins that led them to the playoffs. At the end of every game, every win, the dressing was a real party. It was supposed that they would not win anything in 2015, so they partied all they could.

Cairo Santos among the best young NFL. And that is good news ... from LANCE! [translated from the original Portuguese]

Consistency of Kansas City as a postulant the playoffs and the charge for the team to win games at this stage makes everyone in the franchise to be more charged. And Cairo Santos is the front line in that, since the kicker is an important scorer for any team.

From what I've talked to Cairo, he always knew that the collection is cruel in the NFL. I always knew you would be charged and is ready for it. And the psychological weighs.

Cairo is the last year of contract with the Chiefs. Another cause for concern and motivation, of course.Yet much remains for the season to start, but this will be a good story to follow.
