Kansas City Chiefs Draft Picks 2012: All Offensive, Defensive Line So Far

The Kansas City Chiefs haven't made the flashiest picks so far int he 2012 NFL Draft. Through the first three rounds of the draft, Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel have used their selections on offensive and defensive linemen -- not exactly the type of pick that galvanizes a fanbase, but, often times exactly the type of pick necessary to build a winning team in the NFL.

Instead of trading up for Ryan Tannehill, the Chiefs used the No. 11 overall pick in the draft on defensive tackle Dontari Poe. Poe possesses tremendous athletic ability, though his collegiate results leave much to be desired.

Kansas City used the No. 44 overall pick to select Jeff Allen, an offensive tackle from Illinois, before selecting Donald Stephenson, an offensive tackle from Oklahoma in the third round.

Barring any trades, Kansas City will make five more selections on Saturday in rounds four through seven of the draft. Below is a list of how Kansas City's 2012 NFL Draft is shaping:

Round 1, Pick 11 (11): Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
Round 2, Pick 12 (44): Jeff Allen, OT, Illinois
Round 3, Pick 11 (74): Donald Stephenson, OT, Oklahoma
Round 4, Pick 12 (107)
Round 5, Pick 11 (146)
Round 6, Pick 12 (182)
Round 7, Pick 11 (218)
Round 7, Pick 31 (238)
