Kansas City Hall of Fame Candidate WIll Shields Announces Chiefs' Second Round Pick

Thanks to the wonders of youtube and the internet, we have video of the Kansas City Chiefs using the 44th overall selection in the 2012 NFL draft to take Illinois offensive lineman Jeff Allen.

Fittingly the selection was announced by one of the greatest Kansas City offensive lineman of all-time: Will Shields.

Shields, who retired after the 2006 season, has been operating his own indoor sports facility in Overland Park, Kansas. His greatest football achievement may have come just recently when on March 3rd it was announced that Shields would be inducted into the Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame, in addition to him being named a first-ballot finalist for the 2012 NFL Hall of Fame class.

If Allen is even half as good as Shields was during his NFL career, Allen will be a solid player in the league.

You can view the video of Shields announcing the pick here.

For continued Chiefs draft coverage, make sure to continue visiting Arrowhead Pride.
