The Chiefs came out at No. 15 overall with an average age of 25.32, a full season younger than the San Francisco 49ers and Houston Texans—who sit in the two oldest spots on the list. However, the Chiefs are nearly a full year older than the Los Angeles Rams, who are the youngest roster on the list with 24.62 years old as an average age.

Even thick in Aaron Rodgers pandemonium, don’t overlook the return of Von Miller | Mile High Report (Denver Broncos SB Nation site)

But it hit me as I sat down to write this that Miller is back in the fold for the Broncos defense. There was some fear that Denver wouldn’t pick up the contract for Miller this season and he would head to NFL free agency. The worst fear is he would pull the opposite Neil Smith, where Miller signs with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Thankfully new Broncos general manager George Paton didn’t let that happen when he picked up Miller’s contract. And the player we see will want to wreak havoc on NFL quarterbacks. We would have seen that last season before Miller suffered a season-ending injury mere days before the regular season started. By all account he was an absolute beast in training camp.

Houston Texans coach David Culley deflects questions on Deshaun Watson | ESPN

The Texans’ organized team activities begin May 24, but attendance is voluntary until the team’s mandatory minicamp starting on June 15.

“We have nothing to say about that situation at this time,” Culley said Saturday. “[Texans chairman Cal McNair] and ownership a few weeks back indicated about how our organization feels about the situation. I think when [general manager Nick Caserio] was on not long ago, he also mentioned that the legal process was in effect right now and we’re going to respect that and go from there.”

Giants sign WR-turned-TE Kelvin Benjamin, RB Corey Clement | NFL.com

At 6-foot-5, 245 pounds, he’s been built like one for years. He has a longtime believer in the Giants’ building as well. General manager Dave Gettleman drafted Benjamin for the Panthers with the No. 28 overall pick of the 2014 draft.

The Florida State product initially didn’t disappoint, either. As a rookie, he caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. After missing the next season with a torn ACL, Benjamin put up 63, 941 and seven in 2016. Carolina exercised his fifth-year option, only to trade him to the Bills midway through the 2017 campaign. Benjamin struggled in Buffalo and was released after 14 months. He closed out the 2018 campaign playing three games for the Chiefs.

Chiefs rookie Cornell Powell: ‘I consider myself a playmaker’

Powell did not break out until his fifth and final year, when he recorded 53 catches for 882 yards and seven touchdowns. That fact may have actually benefitted the Chiefs, who were able to nab him in the fifth round.

Chiefs director of college scouting Ryne Nutt stated on draft weekend the team is confident that Powell, at a listed 6 feet and 205 pounds, can pick up where Watkins left off — and Powell certainly has the right mentality.

“I consider myself a playmaker,” he said. “I can go down the field and make plays. I can run routes, and I can give my team a spark, so I’m just here to have fun, make plays and contribute to winning championships.”
