A couple of post-draft, receiver-related Kansas City nuggets:
Seattle general manager John Schneider told reporters the Chiefs called the Seahawks to congratulate them on picking Georgia receiver Kris Durham. Schneider said Durham visited the Chiefs last week and was a player they wanted. Durham was taken in the fourth round at No. 107. The Chiefs took Colorado cornerback Jalil Brown 11 picks later.
First-round pick Jon Baldwin of Pittsburgh was the one receiver in the Chiefs’ nine-player draft class.
ESPN.com’s Jeffri Chadiha doesn’t think Baldwin and the Chiefs are a great marriage because of Baldwin’s diva qualities. Chadiha does point out that Kansas City coach Todd Haley has a history in dealing with self- absorbed receivers. My money is on the never-back-down Haley in this one. Baldwin will succeed in Kansas City or he’ll be shown the door.
