ENGLEWOOD, Co. -- It was reported that both defensive end Jarvis Moss and tight end Tony Scheffler could be traded. Now that the draft is over, trades could be unlikely. Scheffler could stick with the team.

Moss, though, could have trouble making the team. Moss, the No. 17 overall draft pick two years ago, has been moved to outside linebacker from defensive end. He is currently a third-string linebacker.

The Chiefs were expected to try and parlay the second-round pick in 2010 obtained for Tony Gonzalez from Atlanta in a 2009 pick. Yet, the Chiefs still have that choice gained in the trade for one of their all-time best players.

ESPN's John Clayton reported the Raiders were shopping safety Michael Huff and running back Justin Fargas during the weekend. Neither is a surprise. Huff has been a disappointment since he was a No. 1 pick three years ago and Fargas may be lost in a deep running back crew in Oakland.

Don't expect running back Ryan Torain to remain in Denver for the regular season. The fifth-round draft pick, who suffered a torn ACL last season, is probably out of the mix with the addition of Knowshon Moreno.

Denver coach Josh McDaniels mentioned several times during the weekend about the importance of adding "good people." The Broncos introduced their first five draft picks Sunday and all five were impressive and well spoken.

The Raiders drafted three defensive ends. It will not be a surprise if end Derrick Burgess is traded or cut.

The word is tight end Brandon Myers, who Oakland picked in the seventh round, could be a steal. He is an outstanding blocker.

The Chargers plan on using defensive lineman Vaughn Martin at defensive end. He was taken in the fourth round out of Western Ontario in Canada. He was considered a surprise pick. He is huge and strong and looks like a typical San Diego defensive lineman even though his selection was unexpected.

The Raiders added a player with an interesting life story as a free agent.
