The latest NFL mock draft from Sam Farmer has several teams addressing the defensive line in the top of the first round, which means the Kansas City Chiefs are going to have slimmer pickings than what some other mocks have. Luckily the 2012 NFL Draft class has plenty of players who can be impact-level players along the front line, which means the Chiefs still end up with Michael Brockers in Farmer's latest.
Farmer writes, "Lots of mock drafts have [Dontari] Poe going to the Chiefs, and that makes sense. Brockers can play inside or outside, and he upgrades the run defense."
Poe went earlier in Farmer's draft at No. 8 to the Miami Dolphins. Quinton Coples went next at No. 9 to the Carolina Panthers. Melvin Ingram is still on the board at the Chiefs spot at No. 11, but Brockers makes sense as well. Given the Chiefs need along the defensive interior and the need for nearly every NFL team for more bodies to rotate along multiple front-line positions, this is not a surprise move by Scott Pioli.
