Chiefs Mock Draft 1.0: Designing all seven rounds of Kansas City's NFL Draft picks | Kansas City Star
ROUND 1, PICK 29: TAYLOR RAPP, WASHINGTON *
As I mentioned above, I do not think that Chiefs end up choosing this late in the draft.
Even with the addition of Ogbah, they need an elite edge rusher and this is a good draft to secure it. To get one, however, they must act. I want to see them work something for a middle choice to get Clelin Ferrell or maybe Montez Sweat. I wasn't really impressed with the Jachai Polite (Florida) on the NFL Combine, and I wouldn't take a chance on him.
Not only was the Polite's combination not great, his pro day was even worse. He ran a 5.04-second 40-yard dash, among other disturbing readings. But enough about a guy I didn't choose to Chiefs.
Should the Chiefs actually choose 29, I would go with a DB. Rapp, 5-11¾ and 208 pounds, was the fastest security in the short-shuttle exercise, in 3.99 seconds, and he became among the top in his position in the three-cone bore and 60-yard shuttle.
Jackson County will sell old Arrowhead seats, but it needs help bringing them to sale Kansas City Star
It would be "a monumental mistake," Clifford said if Jackson County did not try to get the most possible value from excess Arrowhead seats. Many of them were damaged as they were removed from the stadium and will end up being recycled. But half or more could regain and close in people's space, Clifford said.
Chiefs replace most seating in Arrowhead's top deck as part of a $ 11.5 million off-season renovation. The team had planned to scrape everything with a few thousand of the 20-year-old chairs. During a proposal, the team considered selling 3,500 to the public through the sports memorabilia seller Fanatics and giving away a few thousand to seasonal ticket holders, suite owners and corporate sponsors.

2019 NFL Draft: Eight trades that teams must make on day 1 | NFL.com
Heads Trading # 29 Collected (Round 1) to Panther for No. 16 (Round 1)
At one point, teams were only in "win-now" mode with regard to players' buy-ins because They had a veteran quarterback in the twilight of his career. Now, the teams of young passers-by on rookie contracts are those who are trying to acquire tons of talents because they can take advantage of the extra cap that a cheap quarterback allows. The executives can therefore be aggressive in this draft to find guys playing with Patrick Mahomes over the next few years.

2) Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Chiefs were one of the best stories in 2018 when Patrick Mahomes set fire to the league (and took home MVP honors) with 50 touchdown passes. If I'm honest with you (not that I wasn't up to this point), the fact that the Mahomes racked up 50 TD is in its first season is not enough. The non-look stuff was great but 50 !! Even in this era of ridiculous passes, it kind of stands out as an outlier.
But as big as the bosses were last year, chargers were right on their heels. In fact, the bolts had a big rally in Kansas City to knock them out in the national spotlight on Thursday Night Football. And chargers would have won the division too, if not for a hard loss at Ravens in week 16. Make these two teams Monday chamber in week 1 and let's party!

You lose both picks. & # 39; "I showed the cliff text and he saw a ghost. I said," You must call [Cardinals general manager] Steve Keim right away.
