2012 NFL Draft: KC Chiefs Visiting With A Receiver

One of the strengths of the Kansas City Chiefs offense appears to be the receiver group. From Dwayne Bowe to Jonathan Baldwin to Steve Breaston, it sure looks like the Chiefs have a lot of talent at receiver. In next month's 2012 NFL draft, the KC Chiefs could be picking another receiver.

The Florida Times-Union reports that the Chiefs are one of several teams to schedule a visit with Illinois WR A.J. Jenkins. The Chiefs are on his visit list, along with the Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers.

The most noticeable attribute for Jenkins is his speed, as the Florida Times-Union report notes.

He's fast. Jenkins ran a 4.39 in the 40 yard dash at the combine. Only three receivers ran faster -- Travis Benjamin, Steven Hill and Chris Owusu all ran a 4.36. Still, when I mentioned the combine to Jenkins, he was disappointed in his 40 time. He says he can run a 4.32 or 4.33.

He's a mid-round prospect with NFL Draft Scout pegging him in the fifth round. Jenkins finished last season with 90 receptions for 1,276 yards and eight touchdowns, as he was catching passes from former Rockhurst High School stand-out Nathan Scheelhaase.
