The Kansas City Chiefs continue mining the prospects in the 2012 NFL draft and we've caught wind of one interesting workout they've conducted. According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, the Chiefs have worked out Georgia center Ben Jones.
A workout and a visit aren't the same things. Workouts tend to happen on the player's campus and teams can work out as many players as they'd like. A visit to the team's facility does not include a workout -- it's just a visit.

So the Chiefs working out a center...hmm. I've been thinking that, if the Chiefs find a center they really like in the draft, why not pick him up and keep Hudson at guard? That takes care of not only the center position, which is vacant with Casey Wiegmann's future unknown, but also a future guard spot (Ryan Lilja).

Jones had a Q&A with Scout.com and this quote seems very Chief-like:
"They like that I'm a smart player that knows the offense. I was a leader in college. I'm definitely able to communicate and make all the checks. That's a vital part of what we do at center. I lost 10 to 15 pounds, so I'm more athletic now. I'm hearing second round, no later than the third. I can change directions well. I can play guard. I can be a swingman. Teams aren't going to draft just a center. You've got to be able to play all three interior spots."
He also played in the SEC so he's see some of the best competition. He's viewed as a third round pick in the upcoming draft. The Chiefs found Jon Asamoah in the third round and I'm wondering if they look to another lineman in the third round this year.
