Around the Kingdom: Draft, DeAnthony Thomas, Graham Susi and Matt Belser


Kansas City is one of the best sports towns in the country, and KC Kingdom has a lot of fun bringing you news from around the area for our professional and collegiate teams.

Few fans are as passionate about their teams than Kansas City fans, whether it is making Arrowhead Stadium the loudest outside venue in the world, or filling up Sporting Park each match, or being Royal in Kauffman Stadium. The area also supports three of the most passionate college fan bases in the country.

Each morning, we will try to bring you some news from around our sports kingdom, in addition to the news, information, editorials, and analysis KC Kingdom already provides. We may also pass along an interesting post or two from around the world wide web, just for fun.

We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom. Happy reading!

Draft, draft, and more NFL Draft. At Arrowhead Addict, Ben Nielsen posts video links to five plays by Andy Reid’s new offensive toy DeAnthony Thomas.

Nick Floyd from Arrowhead Addict also shared his thoughts on the Chiefs draft:

The 2014 Draft started with a bang and ended on Saturday night. For the 2014 Kansas City Chiefs, I was a little confused by their draft choices. No receiver in the first round, a quarterback in the fifth, and two, unknown to me, offensive lineman in the 6th. While I was confused, the more I thought about this draft the more I found myself becoming more at ease with it.

Over at Kings of Kauffman, David Hill writes about raised fan expectations for the 2014 season.

Sporting KC is showing its strength, as The Kansas City Star’s Sam McDowell reports that Graham Zusi and Matt Belser have been invited to the pre-World Cup camp for the U.S. team.
