The Kansas City Chiefs ended the 2011 NFL season tied with the Seattle Seahawks with a 7-9 record. Every single tie breaker was exhausted except for the 'ole coin flip. That means that the Chiefs will pick either 11th or 12th overall in the 2012 NFL draft. Here's the rest of the 2012 NFL draft order.
This happened to the Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons in 2008. The Chiefs lost that coin flip in late February, giving the Falcons the No. 3 pick and the Chiefs the No. 4 pick.
Now that we're officially in draft mode at AP, here's what SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber has the Chiefs doing in his latest 2012 NFL mock draft, posted this morning:12. Kansas City Chiefs, Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
Kyle Orton, Matt Cassel or a player to be named later, none of them would find ideal working conditions behind the Chiefs' current offensive line. Reiff can play either tackle spot, and he will help Jamaal Charles in the run game.
We have a number of strategies to deal with the flood of draft posts we get, which I'll be updating you on later. But for now, thoughts on a first round tackle? I never like those.
