Chiefs Have Dinner With A 2012 NFL Draft Prospect

The University of Hawaii conducted their pro day in California this week and the Kansas City Chiefs were one of 26 teams who attended the pro day. The Chiefs took a particular interest in a defensive tackle named Vaughn Meatoga, who would instantly be in the running for best name on the team if drafted.

According to Rob Rang of CBSSports.com, both the Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals took a liking to Meatoga. The Chiefs defensive line coach, Anthony Pleasant, even dined with Meatoga on Sunday night, according to the report.

He was invited to the Scouting Combine, and stood by those numbers, largely sitting out Monday's agility drills. He did participate in the vertical jump (31") and broad jump (9'2") Monday. He lifted the 225-pound bench press 27 times in Indianapolis, ran a 5.00-second 40-yard dash and was fifth among all defensive linemen with a 4.21-second short shuttle.

He's a seventh round, undrafted free agent type of player. The Chiefs will have dinner and talk to a ton of prospects but we'll only hear about a limited number of them.

We'll add him to our Chiefs draft interests chart. (Chris, I'm talking to you. Add him to our chart.)
