Before Kansas City Chiefs' general manager John Dorsey became the team's top personnel man, he was a scout for the Green Bay Packers and traveled twice to Australia to find a punter.

Power Rankings: Kansas City Chiefs offense is in the top half of the NFL

The old adage is that “defense wins championships.” But more and more, that sounds like a cliché being echoed by a coach, analyst or fan intent on living in the past. Nowadays, offense makes the difference; at least most of the time. Looking for proof? Take a look at the teams that made the playoffs last season.

Anthony Barr Scouting Report: Is He Just Another Athletic Speed Rusher?

Edge rusher Anthony Barr is an intriguing draft prospect who is generating a ton of buzz. While the linebacker is extremely athletic, he lacks discipline and could be a liability on certain downs.

The 2014 NFL draft is loaded with talent at wide receiver. If you were a betting man, odds are the Kansas City Chiefs will in fact take a wide receiver with their first round pick.
