NFL Mock Draft Round Two: Kansas City Chiefs Projected To Take Peter Konz

After taking the mammoth run-stuffer Dontari Poe out of Memphis in the first round to strengthen their interior defensive line, the Chiefs are projected to work on the other side of the trenches in the second round, according to SB Nation's latest round two mock draft:

44. Kansas City Chiefs - Peter Konz, OL, Wisconsin

First-round pick: Dontari Poe, DT

In the Chiefs' zone blocking scheme, they obviously need linemen who can get out on the move. Konz is a killer on sweeps in the run game, and gets to the edge really fast. He's a perfect fit for the Chiefs. He could start at guard as a rookie and be insurance if Rodney Hudson happens to struggle at center.

Wisconsin has a long and storied reputation of creating pro linemen, and Konz would help reestablish the Chiefs' stable of runners after injuries hampered the backfield in 2011.
