Chiefs flexible on draft's final day after defensive haul
The Chiefs have the 24th pick in the round, along with a sixth-round pick and two choices in the seventh round. Cornerback remains a priority, but wide receiver, tight end and offensive line could also be in the mix.

Because of smoky conditions in Winslow, the emergency overnight shelter has been moved from Winslow Junior High School to Twin Arrows Casino. Coconino County health officials are encouraging individuals to take precautions to protect themselves from health effects of wildfire smoke.

The fire is under investigation but believed to be caused by a human.

A wildfire forced 10 northern Arizona communities to evacuate Sunday night. The fire is over 11-thousand 400-acres burned near the C.C. Cragin ReservioR. The smaller Indian Meadow Fire, which started on April 23, was also mostly contained. Over 500 firefighters and air crews are working on the blaze and there's no word on how it started. A mapping flight at 1 a.m. MT on Monday showed that it had burned 8,623 acres west of Highway 87 between Payson and Winslow, Arizona. There is no estimated time to reopen the highway near Clints Well between mileposts 290 to 312.
