They brought in Kelly Gregg on a one year deal and let other options go to clear the way for a change in the middle of the defensive front. Thus it’s likely that despite the fact that they drafted a developmental tackle in the sixth round in Jerrelle Powe last year, the Kansas City Chiefs are likely to choose another DT in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft.
Dan Pompei of the National Football Post says that Penn State’s Devon Still is among the top available for a first round selection. He writes, “Scouts say the highest rated tackle prospect now is Devon Still from Penn State, son of former Chiefs great Art Still. Devon is big, strong and quick and can fit in any scheme, but he reminds one general manager a little of Jimmy Kennedy. Still could be leapfrogged on draft boards by Michigan State junior Jerel Worthy depending on how the workout and interview processes go. Worthy is stout and quick off the ball.”
