ay morning Mitch Morse Jersey , and we learned some things about the Kansas City Chiefs."Sports Illustrated’s Jenny Vrentas posted a new article Tuesday titled, “The NFL Draft Information Trade: How Teams Gather Nuggets of Knowledge to Shape Draft Decisions.” If you’re a fan of the NFL and especially the NFL Draft, it is well worth your time.The article breaks down how information flows between teams ahead of the most critical offseason event on the NFL calendar—the draft.Vrentas’ article included three nuggets on the Kansas City Chiefs.If you’re like me, you immediately wondered which quarterbacks went ahead of Blundin in the second round. There were two—the Bengals selected David Klinger (No. 6) and the Broncos selected Tommy Maddox (No. 25 overall). The Giants would later take Dave Brown as the top pick in the league’s supplemental draft.Vrentas also shared two nuggets from the John Dorsey era, including one on the 2017 trade-up for Patrick Mahomes. The only team that genuinely concerned him at the time was the Los Angeles Chargers.When an organization wanted a player as much as the Chiefs wanted Mahomes Chris Jones Jersey , there was likely nothing more nerve-wracking than standing by waiting for the 10th overall pick.The trade-up, as we know now, paid off handsomely. The final Chiefs note was another move from the Dorsey era—trading back for defensive lineman Chris Jones in 2016.Dorsey was right. Current Chiefs general manager Brett Veach will (probably) get his first crack at a first-round pick in 2019. The “nuggets of knowledge” he’s collected to this point might make all the difference. The owners have tabled Kansas City’s overtime proposal until the next league meetings in May. When they reconvene, the change to OT could be made — with one key caveat.In an appearance on , Chiefs owner Clark Hunt suggested that the rule Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey , if adopted, will apply to the postseason only.That’s the better approach. Guaranteeing a possession for the team that kicks off to start overtime even after a first-drive touchdown would result in longer games and more ties in the regular season. Moreover, the regular season lacks the same finality as the postseason, making the unfairness of a one-possession overtime less glaring in the 256 games that make up the 17 weeks of normal football action.For more from Clark Hunt, including some observations on the eventual extension of Patrick Mahomes‘ rookie deal Armani Watts Jersey , check out the video attached to this blurb.
