Florida's Mike Pouncey Reportedly Visiting Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs continue to look for prospects that might be available with the 21st pick in the 2011 NFL draft. One of the guys they'll take a closer look at is Florida G Mike Pouncey. Several reporters, including Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News, report Pouncey is visiting, among other teams, the Chiefs.

His name will ring a bell because his brother, Maurkice Pouncey, had a solid rookie season with the Pittsburgh Steelers last year. According to our Chiefs draft interests table, the Chiefs were represented at Florida's pro day earlier this month where Pouncey received good reviews.

That he's visiting Kansas City indicates some interest on his part. Interior offensive linemen don't usually go too high in the draft but I've seen a number of mock drafts that have Pouncey picked before No. 21. According to Vacchiano, Pouncey is also visiting the Cincinnati Bengals (fourth pick), Dallas Cowboys (ninth pick), Washington Redskins (10th pick) and Detroit Lions (13th pick). So there's a chance he's not around when the Chiefs pick.

So if Pouncey came into Kansas City as a guard, where would he fit? It's Brian Waters and Ryan Lilja right now with Jon Asamoah mixed in behind them. In an interview with Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star at the owners meetings last week, Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said Waters had a "terrific year" but also said: "Things start to happen to guys when you get to the age where he is."

I'm not sure how much to read into that but if they pick Pouncey at No. 21 then I think we can start to read into it a lot more. 

There's also the chance that the Chiefs view him as a center. We know versatility is important in Kansas City.
