The latest mock draft is in from Wes Bunting of the National Football Post and the Kansas City Chiefs are sticking at right tackle in nearly every mock at this point. The 2012 NFL Draft has enough top shelf offensive lineman that the Chiefs should be able to find Barry Richardson's replacement at the No. 11 draft slot. Bunting selects Mike Adams here for the Chiefs.
He writes, "You have to think after the struggles the Chiefs had at right tackle last season, drafting a guy like Adams who has the size and athleticism to handle powerful NFL pass rushers is an intriguing option at 11."
The Ohio State lineman has a mammoth size at 6-8, 320 lbs. and Bunting likes him as the second best tackle in the class. In his scouting report he writes, "He's a talented kid with a big frame, long arms and natural movement skills. He can bend and if he can put it all together and continue to improve his footwork he could certainly mature into a starting caliber left tackle in the NFL."
That would be a great addition to the right side of the Chiefs offensive line at this point and would help any quarterback succeed in 2012. Whether it's Jon Martin of Stanford or Riley Reiff of Iowa or Adams, it's likely the Chiefs use this chance to bolster the offensive line with a top-tier addition.
