"The people I spoke with, however, were quick to outline the downsides-not enough practice reps to develop two quarterbacks and the inability to trade a rookie midseason because of a clause in the CBA".
That could be instructive as Veach prepares for his first draft as the Kansas City general manager.
A year ago, you would not have expected to see the Cowboys on a list of teams in need of a consequential draft. But it doesn't mean they won't, either.
I've talked to coaches and evaluators from other teams who feel the same way. But I think that it's a little blown out of proportion. Roethlisberger said after loss to Jacksonville he believes he can play three more years.
Chasing coveted players in the draft is nothing new for the Chiefs.
Ultimately the goal of the draft is to pick good players.
OUTLOOK: It's all about finding right quarterback after being aggressive and trading up from No. 6 to No. 3 in deal with Indianapolis in March that also cost NY two second-rounders this year and one next year.
5 takeaways from Wolves-Rockets Game 3
The Wolves Big 3 -- Butler, Towns and Wiggins - made a 26-14 run in the 3rd period to secure the 12 point game advantage 87-75. Still, they averaged more than 112 points per game prior to the playoffs and also played solid defense at times .
Saquon Barkley might be the hottest name leading into the 2018 National Football League draft but his agents would reportedly rather not see him being the overall No. 1 pick. They have two first round picks this year (No. 12, No. 22) to go along with two second and two third round picks. John Dorsey knows that to win the fans over they need to make a splash and trading away your number four pick isn't going to do that.
The Chiefs don't have as much to work with in terms of trade material as they did a year ago. They haven't taken QB before fourth round since grabbing Roethlisberger 11th overall in 2004.
OUTLOOK: Bills might take step back before begin advancing after yet another offseason overhaul in bid to build through youth and shed high-priced contracts.
"We'll operate with that mindset". The Browns, Bills and Patriots all have two first rounders.
The Cardinals have the 15th pick in the second round and could be a match for a trade. I think going back to one of the Lakers games that I saw him in, I got to go down and speak with him. "He'll get a shot to continue to compete for those interior spots and provide [flexibility] at tackle". McShay then went with Bradley Chubb at No. 4, giving the Browns a pair of franchise bookends on the defensive line in Chubb and Myles Garrett.
Veach tried last summer to trade for wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The big question: would the Bengals dare use their first-round pick in such a consequential draft on a potential successor to quarterback Andy Dalton?
That's why there's no telling what this weekend might bring for the Chiefs. "So I thought it was pretty special for them to make it out and come experience this with me, because they've had a lot of say in the success that I had at Wyoming". So I think I've obviously been helped out a lot along the way. I think that I helped out in that manner putting the team in the best position to win football games.
