Pre-Camp Reads: Looking at OL Parker Ehinger from Chiefs.com

The Kansas City Chiefs selected offensive lineman Parker Ehinger with the first of their three picks in the fourth round of this year's 2016 NFL Draft.

Ehinger spent time playing right tackle, right guard and left tackle at the University of Cincinnati, the same alma mater of Chiefs tight end and fan favorite Travis Kelce.

Ehinger actually had an opportunity to play with Kelce during his redshirt freshman season at Cincinnati in 2012, so Kelce was happy to hear that his pro team drafted the O-lineman.

They faced the AFC defense of Hawk, Tamba Hali (Kansas City Chiefs), Malcolm Smith (Oakland Raiders), Von Miller (Denver Broncos), and Melvin Ingram (San Diego Chargers)...

...Here's the show in its entirety:

Involving the other Chiefs wide receiver from Yahoo! Sports

The Chiefs lost their offensive coordinator when Doug Pederson left to become the Eagles head coach. They replaced Pederson with Brad Childress and Matt Nagy. They will share the duties as co-offensive coordinators.

Reid could hire 50 offensive coordinators and it still wouldn't mask that it is going to be his offense running things his way. As Terez Paylor wrote here " though Reid will continue to run the daily meetings where plays are installed, as he's done the last three years in Kansas City." It's Reid's show.

Change is not really expected, but we're going to hope for it.

LARRY JOHNSON: WASTED TALENT OR OPPORTUNITY? from The Sports Daily

The Chiefs already had All Pro Priest Holmes on the roster so the addition of Johnson was just an insurance policy in case Holmes suffered another injury. Johnson waited his time and when Holmes did go down in 2005 Johnson took the NFL by storm.

For two years he was the best back in the league. His 2005 and 2006 season were outstanding as he rushed for 1,750 and 1,789 respectively while adding another 40 TD's both on the ground and receiving. Holmes days were numbered in Kansas City as the Chiefs now had their back for what they hope would be the next 10 years but life in the NFL doesn't always goes as planned.
