Chiefs Checking Out A Pair Of First Round Prospects

We've been tracking the Kansas City Chiefs draft interests for some time now and most of the players we've connected with the Chiefs are players expected to be picked in the middle-to-end of the draft. Today we learn that they're checking out a couple of more first round prospects.

Bill Williamson of ESPN.com reports UCLA LB Akeem Ayers will meet with the Chiefs (as well as the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers) before the draft on April 28. Chiefs fans are aware of Ayers because ESPN's Mel Kiper has been sending him to the Chiefs in his mock drafts. He would be a candidate to replace LB Mike Vrabel and play opposite LB Tamba Hali.

The second prospect is Illinois DT Corey Liuget. A league source tells us Chiefs defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel was spotted talking to Liuget on the Illinois campus this week, presumably for a private workout. The Chiefs also had reps at the Illinois pro day. I'd be curious to see whether the Chiefs think he'd be a defensive end or a nose tackle in their 3-4 scheme. He was selected 14th overall by the St. Louis Rams in our mock draft.

So that's two more prospects to add to the Chiefs draft interests. Both players are at perceived positions of need and both could go in the first round.
