2011 NFL Draft: Chiefs Work Out Another Cornerback

The Kansas City Chiefs have checked out a few cornerbacks in the 2011 NFL draft process, a position  GM Scott Pioli has selected in his first two years in KC. The latest name we know of is New Mexico State CB Davon House. 

Aaron Wilson of National Football Post reports the Chiefs conducted a private workout with him, as did the Chicago Bears. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles have or will bring him in for a visit.

I don't know much about him -- I don't watch New Mexico State football -- but his athleticism seems through the roof. He's 6'1" and 200 pounds, which is big for a corner, and runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.3 range. He's intercepted 11 career touchdowns and returned three of them for touchdowns. Check out NFP's post for more details on him.

I'm very, very curious to see if the Chiefs target another cornerback in the draft. The Chiefs have two young, solid corners in CB Brandon Flowers and CB Brandon Carr and, in my ideal world, would keep both. Financially, that's not an easy thing to do. Flowers is entering the final year of his deal and Carr has reportedly been tendered so the Chiefs have a season to figure it out. 

House is projected as a second round pick so the Chiefs would have to commit to him early if they're interested.
