Todd McShay's mock draft has the Chiefs selecting another DT with the top pick

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

Uh-oh.

Someone please provide security for the Chiefs GM from their own fans if this is the case. ESPN's Todd McShay has a new 2013 NFL mock draft out and has the Kansas City Chiefs selecting a ....

....wait for it....wait for it...

A defensive lineman!

Star Lotulelei, defensive tackle out of Utah.

McShay points out the obvious stuff -- that the Chiefs would love to have a quarterback here but there isn't one worth picking -- and then writes:

Kansas City already has spent first-round picks on the likes of Tyson Jackson and Dontari Poe, but needs a defensive tackle who can hold ground while also providing more pass-rush ability. Lotulelei will never be an elite pass-rusher, but he is strong against the run and has the quickness and power to collapse the pocket. He could become a mainstay in the middle and be good for five to seven sacks per year.

McShay also said he thinks the Chiefs should go with Geno Smith over Matt Barkley if that's the direction they decide to go.
