Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet   What a whirlwind weekend! Chiefs traded up three times and changed their 10 picks into six. Just about everyone was thrilled to see the Chiefs take a big swing on a QB for the first time since 1983. After that though, most fans started to get a bit nervous. Chiefs went from a hugely popular player to a bunch of under the radar guys and left the draft with few clear starters. Are Chiefs so confident in their current roster that they really weren’t concerned about…

Chiefs Leverage the Present For the Future in the Draft

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet It was a long draft season. No one I’ve talked to will deny that. That’s what makes the choices that the Kansas City Chiefs have made over the past three days of the 2017 NFL draft even more difficult to reconcile. After years, no, decades, the Chiefs traded multiple picks, including a first-round pick next year, to draft a quarterback of the future. That concept was easy to grasp. What followed from John Dorsey, Andy Reid, Clark Hunt, and their staff, was clearly unclear. The Chiefs began…

Chiefs Use Their Last Draft Pick On a Safety: Leon McQuay III

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet The last nail in the 2017 draft as been stuck for these Kansas City Chiefs. John Dorsey used his last pick to select the Safety from USC, Leon McQuay.

Chiefs Draft Linebacker/Special teams Ace Ukeme Eligwe

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet It looks like the Kansas City Chiefs Special Team’s coach Dave Toub has a voice in their draft war room after all. You’d have to believe that’s the case because when they selected LB Ukeme Eligwe with the 183rd pick in the 2017 NFL draft, even some analysts replied, “Who?”   Ukeme Eligwe is pronounced, ew-KIM-ay ee-LEEG-way. NFL.com published the following statement about Eligwe’s past:   “Ukeme Eligwe went to Florida State to begin his college career. He was a contributor as a redshirt freshman on the…

NFL: Chiefs Trade up to Draft WR Jehu Chesson

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet The Kansas City Chiefs traded two 5th round picks to the Minnesota Viking for the 139th pick in the draft so they could select WR Jehu Chesson.  Jehu Chesson stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 204 lbs. and hails from Michigan. He was a four-year player but an injury in a bowl game at the end of the 2015 season made his 2016 less glamorous as well as did the poor QB play he was saddled with. Chesson ended his Michigan career with 1,639 receiving yards with 12 TDs…

ArrowheadOne: 2017 NFL Draft Open Thread- DAY 3

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet The NFL Draft is nothing, if not a marathon. The three-day event concludes today but the shaping of each team’s future still weighs in the balmy hands of one man for each team: the general manager (unless you’re the Dallas Cowboys). It’s one thing for Andy Reid and John Dorsey to have created an offseason plan back in January or February but quite another to pull off the trades that Dorsey’s been able to orchestrate in the first two days of the National Football League’s 2017 episodic…
