When the Kansas City Chiefs make their selection in the first round of April’s draft, they could go in any number of directions. The once gaping hole on the offensive line is gone thanks to the signing of RT Eric Winston, giving GM Scott Pioli the ability to select a pure luxury pick.
Even with that in mind, would he dare go back to LSU in the first round for another defensive lineman?
11. Kansas City Chiefs: LSU DT Michael Brockers
Brockers is as talented as any defensive lineman in the draft and is capable of maturing into a real game changer up front. He’s got the ability to play all over the Chiefs defensive line early and offers them a lot of versatility in their 34 front
I really like Brockers. He’s not a pure 3-4 nose — obviously a huge need right now for Romeo Crennel’s defense — but the 21-year-old has a chance to get the job done inside and out.
There will be Chiefs fans breaking into cold sweats at the idea of drafting another LSU defensive lineman after Tyson Jackson took so long to come around, but Brockers is a better prospect. Like Bunting, I would be surprised if Brockers isn’t able to help out right away.
