Rang has the Chiefs taking Stanford's Jonathan Martin:

11. Kansas City Chiefs, Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford Cardinal: Like the Miami Dolphins, the Chiefs have individual talent up front. Barry Richardson at right tackle, however, is a weak spot that might be addressed should one of the top three tackles still be on the board. Some scouts think Martin is the most talented pass blocker in the draft. Furthermore, his mobility makes him a natural fit in the Chiefs' current zone-blocking system.

Here is what Brugler has to say about the Chiefs selecting Martin:

11. Kansas City Chiefs, Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford Cardinal: The Chiefs will be searching for a new head coach next season, but GM Scott Pioli remains at the helm and is familiar with the needs on the roster. And one of the biggest question marks is at offensive tackle where the Jared Gaither experiment didn't work. Martin would provide an immediate upgrade over Barry Richardson at right tackle.

Martin had a stellar career at Stanford where he was an honorable mention all-conference player in 2009 and a first team player in 2010 and 2011. In 2011 he also was named a member of the AP All-America second-team.
