The Kansas City Chiefs are getting a good idea of what Central Michigan cornerback Sean Bunting can add to their defense as he visits Arrowhead Stadium on Wednesday.
The Kansas City Chiefs continue to host NFL Draft prospects in anticipation of the big event at the end of April. On Wednesday, the team hosted Central Michigan cornerback Sean Bunting at Arrowhead Stadium for a pre-draft visit.
The Chiefs have been linked to Bunting already this offseason, not only in mock drafts done by NFL analysts, but the team has also checked him out at CMU’s pro day as one of several teams on hand.
Now Bunting has been brought in for a closer look as the Chiefs try to determine what to do with their early round selections.
Bunting presents an interesting player for the Chiefs because their positioning represents the bookends for his likely draft stock. Bunting is often considered one of the second-tier corners available in the draft—an unlikely first round prospect whose draft stock has soared in recent months. Consequently, Bunting could come off the board earlier in the second round. For the Chiefs, it means picking at or near the end of every round becomes problematic for a tweener value like Bunting.
The bottom line is that the Chiefs need to likely strike early if they really want Bunting. If Veach believes he’s going to provide some real talent and competition alongside Kendall Fuller, Bashaud Breeland, Tremon Smith and Charvarius Ward, then he needs to simply be decisive and take him. Then again this could be a good time to trade back and pick up an extra pick in the draft’s middle rounds, especially if it adds a pick on Day 2.
Bunting was voted first-team All-MAC last season after putting up a strong junior year at CMU. He had 37 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles last year.
