The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly planning to meet with Oregon Ducks DE/OLB Dion Jordan ahead of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Dion Jordan/OLB/Oregon official visit list thus far includes Kansas City, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Arizona & New York Jets….

Now things are getting interesting. The Chiefs sent both head coach Andy Reid and GM John Dorsey to Orgeon’s Pro Day where they would have gotten an up close look at Jordan. If they scheduled a private visit with the player, they must have liked what they saw.
Andy Reid recently said the Chiefs are considering eight to 10 players for the top pick. Dorsey has used similar language. Jordan is considered one of the top picks in the draft and if the Chiefs are using a private visit on him, it may be that Jordan is among the eight to 10 players Reid was talking about.
Remember teams only get private visits with 30 players so they likely don’t use them lightly. Still, teams often take players they did not have in for a visit so there are no guarantees.
With the Chiefs picking first, however, they have a little less to hide. I would be willing to bet that the Chiefs bring the player they intend to draft in for a visit, most especially if they remain in the No. 1 spot.
What do you think, Addicts? They Chiefs are pretty well set at starting pass rushers. Does Jordan fit in?
