Chiefs Work Out Iowa State Tackle Kelechi Osemele

The Kansas City Chiefs worked out Iowa State offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele yesterday, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com.

Osemele is rated as the 7th best tackle in the draft by NFL Draft Scout and he is projected as a 2nd round pick.

Like safety, the Chiefs have absolutely no depth at their tackle positions. If something were to happen to Branden Albert or Eric Winston next season, KC’s offense could be severely impacted. In fact, with Barry “The Bull Fighter” Richardson unlikely to return, I’m not even sure who the backup tackle would be.

Osemele has typical tackle size at 6-6, 333.

What the Chiefs plan to do in the first round is a mystery but I could see their draft shaking out like this:

1. G/ILB

2.T

3. S

Then in the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th rounds they could look to add more depth at positions like RB, CB and DL.
