2011 NFL Mock Draft: Chiefs Go Offensive Line, Wide Receiver

The 2011 NFL draft is still over two months away. Think about that. We're already doing 2011 NFL mock drafts and the actual draft is still over 60 days away.

Nevertheless, we're mock draftin' today. SB Nation's latest 2011 NFL mock draft, courtesy of Brian Galliford of Buffalo Rumblings, has been released. This is a two-round version so we've got a couple of picks to look at for the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the first round, at No. 21, the Chiefs pick....

Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College. Todd Haley is fine-tuning his offense, and that starts up front, where the Chiefs could use a long-term answer at right tackle.

In the second round, at No. 55, the Chiefs pick....

Titus Young, WR, Boise State. The Chiefs have a lot of speed at running back, but not enough at receiver. Young is lithe, but also a potential superstar.

You could make an argument these -- right tackle and receiver -- are the Chiefs top two needs heading into 2011. If the Chiefs truly are moving back to a more "meat and potatoes" offense then offensive line would potentially become a higher priority. 

Though I realize the Chiefs need a receiver heading into next year, I think I'd prefer a trade for an established player. The Chiefs Super Bowl window may be creeping open and they need help at receiver now -- not three years down the line.
