2012 Draft: Donald Stephenson Speechless About Being Drafting By His Hometown Kansas City Chiefs

"I'm speechless, I love the Chiefs. I've always love them. Having the chance to play in my hometown in huge."

That is what the newest Chief, offensive lineman Donald Stephenson told the Kansas City Star after the Chiefs used the 74th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to select the former Kansas City Central and Blue Springs prep.

Coming out of high school, the current 6'6" 307 lb offensive lineman was the seventh rated high school player in the state of Missouri by Rivals.com back in 2007.

With the Chiefs having selected Illinois offensive lineman Jeff Allen in the second round, the Chiefs likely found their top reserves at both guard and tackle.

Going into the 2012 season, the Chiefs appear like they will head into the season with an offensive line of Branden Albert and Eric Winston at the tackles, Ryan Lilja and Jon Asamoah on the inside at guard, and second year player Rodney Hudson at center.
