The Kansas City Chiefs are checking out multiple offensive linemen before the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft, and the latest is an athletic lineman out of TCU.

Each NFL franchise is allowed up to 30 pre-draft visits from prospects as they prepare for the 2018 NFL Draft, shifting around their big boards all the while as they gain further insight and information about the players that intrigue them.

For the Kansas City Chiefs, some attention lately has been on offensive linemen, and the latest comes to town from Texas Christian University in the form of center Patrick Morris. Morris reportedly is en route to K.C. for a chance to meet with and work out for the team.

Recently the Chiefs brought in James Murray from Holy Cross for a visit and also checked out several potential offensive line prospects at the team’s local pro day, which brought linemen in from Kansas and Missouri as well as other schools.

Morris stands at 6’3, 300 pounds and is likely a later round prospect for the Chiefs or another team to take late in the draft. It would serve the Chiefs well to take someone, since they lacked a single drafted rookie last season anywhere along the line. With the loss of free agent Zach Fulton already in free agency, the team can ill afford to suffer any more losses before putting more players in the pipeline.

The Chiefs could add one or even more players in the upcoming draft given the potential need for a starting option at left guard and the need for more youth and versatility all around.
