2012 Mock Draft: Kansas City Chiefs Style

With the Kansas City Chiefs in the midst of a three-game skid, many fans are starting to look forward to the 2012 NFL Draft.

Our friends over at NFL Mocks have put together a full seven-round mock for the Chiefs.

Here is the first pick:

1st round Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa Hawkeyes

Offensive line or quarterback seems likely here. The problem I have with going quarterback is at this point I’m not sure if the Chiefs have given up on Matt Cassel yet or not. If I knew that this mock would be easier. I’m going to assume that they have NOT given up on Cassel as their franchise quarterback and because they drafted a QB early on last year, I’m going to avoid quarterback altogether.

With that being said Riley Reiff is a nice tackle prospect in a fairly top heavy OT class. Reiff or Jonathan Martin are the most likely tackles to be drafted after USC’s Matt Kalil. Reiff has the athleticism and range to be a very effective LT at the N.F.L., though he has the potential to be an All-pro kind of right tackle. Either way, the selection of Reiff instantly improve the Chiefs offensive line.

Interesting choice. We sure do need a tackle but I think I would put the needs at QB higher. Check out the entire mock draft over at NFL Mocks!
