2012 NFL Combine: Chiefs To Meet With Robert Griffin III During Combine

According to ESPN's Bill Williamson, the Kansas City Chiefs representatives will be meeting with former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III and other quarterbacks during the NFL Combine this weekend. RG3 is considered by most to be the second best quarterback in this draft class behind Stanford's Andrew Luck, and most pre-combine speculation had teams like the Cleveland Browns or the Washington Redskins trading up as high as No. 2 to take him off the board.

When Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli was asked about the meeting with RG3, he let it be known that the team is just doing its "due diligence" by talking to the Hiesman Trophy winner and that people shouldn't speculate about it. It's likely that in order for the Chiefs to grab Griffin, which I'm sure they'd like to do, they would have to give up quite a bit as the 11th team to go on the clock.

While the Chiefs have Matt Cassel coming back in 2012, a quarterback like RG3 would make the team much better. However, Kansas City doesn't have as much to offer a team like the Rams as others that are likely interested, like the Browns, who have two first-round picks to play with. Stranger things have happened, though, and you never know what's going to happen in the NFL Draft.
