Round 2, Pick 64: Patrick Paul, OT, Houston

A 5-year player and a 3-year starter at Houston. Paul is a huge physical specimen with tons of experience at left tackle. At 6'7", 330 lbs., and with arms measuring over 36 inches, once Paul gets his hands on you its over. He's an above-average pass blocker who is surprisingly fluid for his size.

Paul is vulnerable at times to inside moves but his consistency in pass sets is excellent. Voted team captain twice, Paul had incredible interviews at the combine (per Dane Brugler), he also met with the Chiefs.

Until the Chiefs have their left tackle of the future, they should continue to take swings at the position in the draft. Maybe that's Patrick Paul or Wanya Morris—or maybe it's neither of them—but they need to keep trying. In most other years Paul would be a first-round pick easily. He tested better than most expected and comes with a lot of experience.

Paul feels like Orlando Brown except much more athletic. At 24 years old, the Chiefs might be hesitant but the rest of the traits are very encouraging.
