The Star’s third-annual All-Juice Team for the NFL Draft

The vision of the All-Juice team is simple. In preparation for this year’s NFL Draft, I’ve watched tape of hundreds of prospects. During that time, some guys are bound to stand out. This team is meant to recognize 22 prospects I like for various reasons, whether it be their effort, feistiness or performance.

Head of the class: the best Chiefs drafts of all time

The NFL Draft is an exercise in looking ahead. But here we look back at the best draft classes in Kansas City Chiefs’ history. The best occurred just as the team relocated from Dallas. The 1963 Chiefs draft produced two Pro Football Hall of Famers and three members of the Chiefs Hall of Fame.

Confident, deep crop of rookie corners should be enticing for Chiefs

If anyone knows how difficult it is to play on the other side of Marcus Peters, it’s Ron Parker. Not only has Parker logged the occasional snap at cornerback across from Peters, the Chiefs’ Pro Bowl corner, he’s also watched a number of guys man the position the last two years from his starting safety position.

Vahe Gregorian: Chiefs should avoid another controversial draft pick, like Joe Mixon

Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs took a major public-relations hit and a big risk by drafting Tyreek Hill, who only months before had pleaded guilty to domestic violence on his then-pregnant girlfriend. By all accounts, the gamble has worked out well off the field and Hill has excelled on the field. So the Chiefs may be tempted to draft a talent like Joe Mixon, who punched a woman in 2014. That would be a bad idea.

With 10 draft picks, Chiefs have flexibility to take quarterback early

The Kansas City Chiefs have 10 selections in next week’s NFL Draft, which could give them flexibility to make moves, perhaps even trading up to get a quarterback if there’s one they like. General manager John Dorsey said he doesn’t see a quarterback who is an NFL starter next season but the Chiefs could use the next season or two to groom a future starter.
