30 Teams, Including Chiefs, Attend Illinois Pro Day

30 teams attended the Illinois pro day on Wednesday, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, and the Arizona Cardinals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the only two not represented. That means the Kansas City Chiefs were there checking out the prospects.

Illinois actually has a few players that could be on the Chiefs radar in the first round.

First, LB Martez Wilson could attract some attention but he may not be there if the Chiefs stand pat at No. 21. He could go as high as the top 10 if he's deemed fully healthy following a herniated disc in his neck that cost him the 2009 season. One plus for him is a Chiefs buzzword -- versatility -- as teams see him as an inside linebacker, and possibly an outside linebacker due to his athleticism and speed.

Second, DT Corey Liuget has been a mock draft pick by some for the Chiefs. Here's what NFL Draft Scout had to say about him: "The Miami native's versatility may be what puts him among the top defensive tackle prospects in this class. His ability to get consistent pass rush from the three-technique and nose spots will excite teams using four-man fronts. His experience at the five-technique and nose tackle positions his season should intrigue 3-4 teams, as well."

Third, RB Mikel Leshoure who could make a run at the first round. Here's what National Football Post had to say about him: "Leshoure is a 6-0, 230-pound prospect who possesses a thick, compact frame, runs behind his pads and exhibits impressive power through contact. However, what makes him so intriguing is his overall body control, balance and short-area quickness for a guy his size. Leshoure has the ability to create for himself inside, set up blocks at the line of scrimmage and quickly accelerate into the open field."

All you Illini fans out there tell us what you think of these guys.
