2012 NFL Draft Recap: Day Two Belongs To The Offensive Line For The Kansas City Chiefs

Coming into Friday evening I expected (and hoped) that the Kansas City Chiefs would draft an offensive lineman, however I didn't expect the Chiefs would use both their second and third round selections of offensive lineman.

It seemed like the Chiefs reached a bit on Illinois lineman Jeff Allen and did so even more with the choosing of Oklahoma offensive tackle Donald Stephenson.

The popular website Walter Football gave the drafting of Stephenson a C- grade as they said:

"Another tackle? Donald Stephenson fits the range and could even emerge as a potential starting left tackle, but then what did Kansas City draft Jeff Allen for? I don't think you take a backup tackle in Day 2. "

While it's great to see the Chiefs stack up on depth (hey anything is better than Barry Richardson, right), offensive line isn't the only area that the Chiefs need to build depth at. And as previously stated, do you really take a backup offensive lineman in day two? I can picture one, but not two.
