2012 NFL Mock Drafts Look To Nose Tackle For Chiefs

If you didn't know, SB Nation has an NFL draft blog called Mocking The Draft and they're doing mock drafts all the time over there. In the last two days they've added a pair of 2012 NFL mock drafts so I wanted see what they're saying about the Kansas City Chiefs.

It's clear we're not the only ones who think the Chiefs top need is nose tackle. Both mock drafts went with a nose tackle at the 11th pick.
Dontari Poe | Defensive tackle | Memphis: Scott Pioli might give Romeo Crennel what he could never find for Todd Haley, a true nose tackle. The 3-4 defense simply does not function without a true stopper at NT, and Poe provides that. With Peyton Manning now in the division, defense should by K.C.'s top priority in the draft.
Dontari Poe | Defensive tackle | Memphis: If there is one thing head coach Romeo Crennel loves, it's size on the defensive line. With Kelly Gregg near retirement and coming off injury, Crennel could view Poe as the nose tackle of the future. Poe may remind the hulking Poe of Ted Washington, a player who followed him from New England to Cleveland.
I've been saying Poe as well but I think there are definitely some concerns with him, which I touched on here.

Thoughts on the nose tackle craze in the Chiefs mock drafts?
