NFL Mock Draft: David DeCastro Heads To Chiefs In NFL.com's Latest

The Kansas City Chiefs will have some interesting personnel to choose between when they come up on the clock in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. As the first team sitting outside of the top ten, someone is bound to fall, as always, so what should the Chiefs do if they are faced with taking the best player in the draft at a number of positions? What if Trent Richardson falls their way? What if Justin Blackmon is available? Could a top corner fall?

David DeCastro is already tagged as the best lineman available in this draft and, since he is a guard, he is typically linked with the Chiefs since no other team would take him as high as a top ten pick. Yet it's also clear he's so good that he shouldn't fall much farther than that. Given the Chiefs focus on the offensive line this offseason and need for another young interior player, DeCastro could fit the bill.

Brian Baldinger of the NFL Network has DeCastro to the Chiefs in his latest mock draft. He writes, "The Chiefs want to lead the league in rushing, and DeCastro can assume the same position that he played at Stanford." The move would likely put Ryan Lilja as the primary interior back-up on the team. Immediately that gives the Chiefs a much better line than anything they've had since Scott Pioli arrived in KC.
