Denver and Kansas City headlines

Denver

Texas A&M quarterback Stephen McGee will visit the Broncos.

My take: This is a player to keep on an eye on. The odds of McGee ending up in Denver may be as strong as USC quarterback Mark Sanchez ending up in Denver. New Broncos coach Josh McDaniels likes to identify quarterbacks late in the draft and McGee could be a project-type player who intrigues McDaniels. McDaniels is high on Kyle Orton, who was acquired in the Jay Cutler trade, so he may not feel the need to find a quarterback in the draft who can play immediately.

Kansas City

Tank Tyler may be the Chiefs' new nose tackle in the 3-4 defense.

My take: Tyler is a good choice as Kansas City begins this new era. He is a young player who has some ability and could end up having a nice career. The big question is where Glenn Dorsey, the No. 5 overall pick in last year's draft, will play. If Tyler is going to be the new nose tackle, that means Dorsey will be an end in the defense. Dorsey is a talented player whose ability to transition to a 3-4 scheme will be a huge factor in whether Kansas City succeeds.
