Round 3 - Pick 32

Zack Moss RB

Kansas City

This could be the spot for a corner for the Chiefs depending on who they can re-sign, but Moss provides great value here if he can stay healthy, and he should be a fantastic fit with Andy Reid.

PICK 32

Marlon Davidson - Edge

School: Auburn | Year: Senior

He’s a versatile player who can rush inside and off the edge.

1 Chiefs

Their biggest offseason issue is what to do with defensive lineman Chris Jones. He is a force who they cannot let get out of the building.

T-1 Patrick Mahomes

Individual Rank: Bhanpuri: 1 | Blair: 1 | Filice: 2 | Parr: 2

2019 regular season stats: 14 games | 65.9 pct | 4,031 pass yds | 8.3 ypa | 26 pass TD | 5 INT | 218 rush yds | 2 rush TD | 2 fumbles lost

Parr: If you had to select one QB for one game, is anyone not picking Mahomes? The Super Bowl MVP’s 2019 stat line would have been even more impressive if not for the dislocated kneecap that sidelined him around midseason (for only two games, somehow), but throw out the numbers and just watch him play. Yeah, we’ll make room on the throne for Patrick.

The biggest NFL veterans who could be cut in the 2020 offseason | SB Nation

Sammy Watkins, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

Savings from cutting Watkins: $14 million

Watkins has shown flashes of star-making play throughout his six-year career, but has ultimately failed to live up to the potential that made him the fourth overall pick in 2014. This past season was no different. He began it with a three-touchdown, 198-yard performance in the Chiefs’ season opener, had just one 100-yard game in the next 13 games, and finished the year with 14 catches for 288 yards in the postseason.

That makes it hard to justify Watkins’ $21 million cap hit for 2020 — especially now that reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes is eligible for what’s sure to be a massive contract extension. With Chris Jones careening toward free agency, the team’s decision may come down to either its second-best wide receiver or the defensive lineman who helped save a Super Bowl win.

Are Ravens biggest threat to Chiefs in AFC? | Ebony Bird

Outside of New England, there isn’t another team you can say is firmly in that upper tier with the Chiefs other than Baltimore. Unless you believe what the Tennessee Titans did in the second half of the year is sustainable going forward, then that is your holy triumvirate of football powers in the AFC entering 2020. It really comes down to if you prefer Baltimore to New England.

Usain Bolt says there is ‘no chance’ Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill could make U.S. Olympic team | Kansas City Star

Despite that, retired sprinter Usain Bolt told NBC Sports’ Seth Rubinroit that Hill wouldn’t make it on an Olympic team. One reason: The Olympic Trials, which are in June, would require Hill to run the 200-meter dash three times in three days.

“No, there’s no chance,” said Bolt, who won eight gold medals for Jamaica. “A lot of people think it’s about one-off runs, but it’s rounds that really show who you are and the amount of work you do. So I think no, he wouldn’t make the team.”

Unhappy with deal, Quinton Dunbar asks Redskins to release or trade him | ESPN

Dunbar, 27, has one year left on his contract, with a base salary of $3.25 million — none of which is guaranteed. He also has a roster bonus worth up to $250,000. Dunbar had talked with the previous administration about an extension, but a source said there had been no contact with the Redskins since head coach Ron Rivera was hired after the season.

“I do feel I have some emotional fire and passion still left,” Rivers said, via Farmer. “I know I have the passion for the game that I think is going to last my lifetime. And I think I have the ability left to go play at a high level.”

Frank Clark stresses “short-term memory” if Chiefs are to return to Super Bowl

Clark added that in order to do that, the Chiefs will need to have “short-term memory.”

“Enjoy it for the moment, enjoy it for those few weeks, but then after that, you’ve got to get back to work,” said Clark. “The work doesn’t stop, man. While we celebrating and stuff like that, there’s already guys who’ve made the decision to go back to work and compete against us next year. The goal is to come back and be there every year. Although that’s not going to happen like that, that’s the goal. You want to do everything you can to put yourself in position to do that.”
