Five Sleepers the Chiefs Should Target Later in the Draft

With many positions of need being filled via free agency(Jeremy Maclin at wide receiver, Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika at guard), the Chiefs have a much better roster than they did coming into free agency. However, they could still add depth at  wide receiver, tight end, defensive tackle, and linebacker. Not every star prospect can be taken in the first round, and so the Chiefs could...

Kansas City Chiefs 2015 Draft Big Board 2.0

With the NFL Draft upon us, it’s time to re-rank the players I believe should be on John Dorsey’s draft board. 1. La’El Collins, T/G LSU (previous rank: #1) ...

Kansas City Chiefs sign G Paul Fanaika

Fanaika is a big, physical guard at 6-5 327, but he’s really struggled as a starter over the last 2 seasons in Arizona. After the 2009 7th round pick played no snaps in the first 4 seasons of his career, Fanaika started 30 games over the past 2 seasons, but he wasn’t good, grading out 76th out of 81 eligible guards in 2013 and 71st out of 78 eligible guards in 2014.

Do the Arizona Cardinals need to draft an interior lineman in the NFL Draft?

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center.
