  • Mike Klis of 9 News reports that if the Broncos had taken the Bills’ trade offer for No. 5 overall and not selected pass rusher Bradley Chubb, Denver would have received the Bills two first-round picks and one of the second-rounders with the Broncos sending Buffalo a third-round pick.


The Chiefs made an interesting decision during Day 3 of the draft when they traded up to select Kahlil McKenzie, who happens to be the son of Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie.

Khalil says he told his day that he “can’t wait to whip up on [him] twice this year and the next year and the next year after that.

I can’t wait to whip up on you twice this year, and the next year and the next year and the next year after that,” Kahlil said he told Reggie, via Adam Teicher of “We’re a competitive family [by] nature. We compete in everything we do. This just adds one more ripple into that. We’re all excited for it. I’m excited to get to Kansas City and just help the Chiefs . . . whoop up on the Raiders [and] whoop up on the rest of the NFL.”


  • Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports that Jon Gruden is set to overhaul the Raiders’ personnel department following this year’s draft.
  • According to Marvez, Gruden is believed to have final say on roster decisions over GM Reggie McKenzie.
  • Marvez adds that the belief right now is that Oakland will be adding at least one new personnel executive to their front office.
  • Marvez says there’s buzz in league circles that Raiders player personnel director Joey Clinkscales will be moving on and the Browns could be a potential landing spot for him.
