Chiefs GM John Dorsey explains draft aggression, rationale for third-day picks

With 10 picks heading into this year’s NFL Draft, and not enough winnable roster spots to hold on to a healthy number of them, Chiefs general manager John Dorsey decided to try something different.

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.
