Four Round Mock Draft Has Chiefs Picking OLB, G, ILB

Mel Kiper has his latest mock draft up which includes four rounds.  There are so many factors that make a four round mock draft pointless except for the purpose of educating ourselves on the players the Chiefs could or should be keying in on according to the pundits.

Without further ado, here's who Kiper says the Kansas City Chiefs will be selecting in the first four rounds of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Round 1 (3) OLB Aaron Curry, Wake Forest

Round 3 (67) OL Andy Levitre, Oregon State

6'3", 305 pound left tackle in college, Levitre's projected to play on the interior of the offensive line mainly because of his short arms.  He's got plenty of experience and versatility having started his final 35 games at every position except center.

Why he'll be a Chief....Versatility (but not in the Kris Wilson sense).  He can fill a need at either guard position and can provide depth at either tackle position if needed.

Round 4 (102) ILB Daniel Ellerbe, Georgia

The Chiefs got a look see at the 6'1", 235 pound linebacker when they attended the Georgia Pro Day last month.  He played inside at Georgia and projects to play inside in the NFL.

Why he'll be a Chief...Hampered by injuries in 2008 caused his stock to fall so the Chiefs could be banking on an injury-free pro career and select him in the fourth round as a nice value pick.  Plus the LB position is a major area of need for the Chiefs.

***

The possibility of the Chiefs picking Levitre and Ellerbe remains very low based solely on the sheer number of external factors that go into play with the actual NFL draft.  Nevertheless, Kiper's latest four round mock draft helps educate us on the some of the players outside of the first round.

Would you be satisfied with these players after the first four rounds?
