The Kansas City Chiefs are keeping tabs on all possibilities for the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. According to Chris Steuber of Scout.com, that includes Alabama LB Rolando McClain.
Per Steuber, McClain had dinner with representatives of the Chiefs on the night before his pro day on March 10th.
McClain ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.7 range which is about where folks expected him to run. He surprisingly didn't run at the NFL Combine so it was good to see him participating.
We've also talked about some questions that have been popping up regarding McClain. A NFL scout and ESPN's Chris Mortensen have questioned his effort on tape at times.
This dinner doesn't mean the Chiefs will draft McClain and it doesn't mean they won't. It just means that they're doing due diligence on all the available prospects whether that be at No. 5, 12, or 37 and beyond.
