Auburn Vs. Mississippi State Attracts Kansas City Chiefs Scouts

The Kansas City Chiefs scouting department was hard at work on Saturday as they attended an SEC game between Auburn and Mississippi State.

With the college football season in full bloom, scouts are already beginning the process of preparing for the 2013 NFL Draft. After losing Brandon Carr in free agency, the Chiefs could be looking to upgrade their secondary in the draft.

Mississippi State senior cornerback Johnthan Banks would be the top prospect at that position represented. CBS Sportsline has Banks rated as the third-best cornerback prospect and 29th player overall, making Banks a strong first-round possibility.

Sportsline's Rob Rang says that the only question with Banks is his speed, particularly in recovery, but that with a strong senior season, he could end up a first-round pick. Though there were plenty of other seniors and underclassmen to scout during the game, Banks makes the most sense for the Chiefs.

The Chicago Bears, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles also had scouts on hand for the game.
