Kansas City Chiefs Day 1 Draft Primer
USA TODAY Sports|Image Edited by Brett Gering

As a kid, Christmas morning falls on December 25. As an adult, at least for Kansas City Chiefs fans, said morning falls on Day 1 of the NFL draft. 

A year ago, Kansas City's Kool-Aid Man, Andy Reid, captained a sinking ship, plugged the leaks and U-turned it in the right direction. Since then, one truth has remained constant: The Chiefs are proactive, especially when it comes to personnel decisions. 

In the past handful of days, gossip has enveloped Kansas City, with trade- and contract-related rumors turning water coolers into debate desks. If the whispers ring true, by the time Reid and John Dorsey localize the war room, their current notepad of needs may look more like a laundry list.

Suddenly, within the span of 48 hours, the scope of first-round mocks changed from "which wideout or free safety will land at No. 23?" and broadened to a head-scratching farrago riddled with corners and quarterbacks.

Now that the days on your countdown clock have struck zero, consider this primer a one-stop shop for the five W's surrounding the Chiefs' Day 1 draft.
