2012 NFL Mock Draft: Chiefs Select Linebacker And Guard In New NFL.com 2-Round Mock Draft

In NFL.com's latest two-round mock draft, Charley Casserly addresses the linebackers and the offensive line with the team's first and second-round picks. First, with the No. 11 overall pick, Casserly predicts the Chiefs will select Boston College inside linebacker Luke Kuechly.

11) Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College. Needs at offensive guard and nose tackle can be filled with later picks.

Kuechly is this draft class' best inside linebacker and would join a group that had two Pro Bowlers in 2011, Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali.

Then, with the team's second-round pick, they select Iowa State guard Kelechi Osemele.

44) Chiefs: Kelechi Osemele, OL, Iowa State. Physical inside player will help Kansas City's running game get back on track.

Osemele is a powerful guard that could help open running holes for the team's running backs and protect Matt Cassel in the pocket.
