The Kansas City Chiefs continue to keep an eye on any and all prospects leading up to the 2011 NFL draft. We've learned of a few more players they could be interested in this week.

Cal DB Chris Conte was one of the Chiefs 30 pre-draft visits, according to National Football Post. The Chiefs don't really have a glaring need at safety with rookies Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis handling much of the duties last year. Conte is 6'2" and 197 pounds and is expected to be a third round pick. He runs the 40 in 4.52 seconds and had 18 reps on the bench press. Bringing a cornerback on board makes you wonder what the future of CB Brandon Flowers and CB Brandon Carr is.

The Chiefs also reportedly had a visit from Cincinnati G/C Jason Kelce. He's a three-year starter who stands 6'3" and weighs 280 pounds. Scouting reports say he can play guard or center and he's expected to be a seventh round pick or an undrafted free agent. We're still waiting to hear whether C Casey Wiegmann will be returning to the Chiefs next year or if he'll retire. 

We'll add those two players to our Chiefs draft interests table (and Chris will provide an updated version today).
