Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara is set to visit the Kansas City Chiefs.
Well, well, well. The plot thickens.
Amukamara isn’t just any first round CB. He is a top 10 prospect and some consider him to be the best CB option in the draft. We haven’t talked much about him around here because the Chiefs already have Brandon Carr, Brandon Flowers and Javier Arenas and because Amukamara is expected to be long gone by the time the Chiefs reach the podium at Radio City Music Hall.
I have to believe that the Chiefs are just doing their due diligence here. As I’ve said before, the Chiefs are likely to take a hard look at all the potential first round prospects just in case something crazy happens and then end up with a blue chip player landing on their lap.
The Chiefs don’t really need Amukamara but you can never have enough good CB’s, especially when you have to go up against Philip Rivers twice a year. That being said, I doubt the Chiefs would trade up to acquire a guy who plays at what is probably their deepest position.
Then again, I didn’t think the Chiefs would trade up to grab an injury prone tight end the year after they traded up to grab a tight end that can’t catch the year before. I was wrong and Scott Pioli selected Tony Moeaki.
Hang on to your helmets.
