According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, Alabama defensive lineman Josh Chapman is visiting the Kansas City Chiefs today.
Chapman, who played nose guard for Alabama, tore his ACL in October.
And he continued to play on it until January so that he could finish the season.
The good news is that he had the ACL repaired at the conclusion of the season by Dr. James Andrews, the specialist that all NFL players go to. According to Andrews, Chapman is healing so fast that he should be ready for training camp.
Chapman weighs in at 316 lbs. and stands at 6-1. NFl Draft Scout rates him as the 10th best DT in the draft and currently projects him as a third- or fourth-round selection.
His junior year, Chapman had 31 tackles, 3 ½ for a loss. Last year, on the bum knee, he recorded 23 tackles and had two games where he recorded half a sack.
The Chiefs will likely continue to look at defensive lineman. The nose tackle position is a bit of an unknown at this point and both Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson are getting very expensive. There is a strong possibility that one of them will be gone soon.
