2012 NFL Draft: Highlights Of Kansas City Chiefs 2nd Round Pick Jeff Allen At Illinois

The video department at the University of Illinois posted a highlight video of Chiefs second round pick Jeff Allen on youtube Friday evening, showcasing one of the newest Kansas City players. You can view the video here.

Though Allen was a left tackle at Illinois, he figures to move inside to guard for the Chiefs, where he will likely challenge Ryan Lilja for playing time next season.

Allen seemingly took over as the leader on the offensive line the past two seasons for the Illini after Jon Asamoah graduated, and of course we all know where he is currently playing on Sundays.

If anything, it appears the Chiefs have taken a versatile player who can play both guard and tackle, and on either side of the offensive line.

While neither Allen or Stephenson will step in as starters in 2012, it appears that Kansas City is building depth which it has badly needed since the days of stout lines featuring like Willie Roaf, Will Shields, and Brian Waters.
