The Kansas City Chiefs have checked out a number of potential first round picks but they've also done the same with the late round guys. According to the Lansing State Journal, the KC Chiefs hosted Michigan State WR Keith Nichol for a visit. He's also visited the New England Patriots.

He started out his career as a quarterback at Oklahoma but some guy named Sam Bradford was there and he didn't turn out too bad. Rob Rang of CBSSports.com has the Nichol file:

WR Keith Nichol (6-2, 220) began at Oklahoma as a heralded quarterback but wound up behind Sam Bradford. After transferring to MSU and losing a razor's-edge battle with Cousins, Nichol switched to wideout and made several big plays, including a Hail Mary grab to beat Wisconsin. If he isn't as polished or accomplished a receiver as teammate B.J. Cunningham, Nichol is branding himself as the most versatile player in the draft. With a team-high vertical leap 39.5 inches and the willingness to play anywhere and help on every special team, he should earn a late-round or free-agent look.

Interesting. The Chiefs like versatile players, as all teams do, but not usually this kind of versatility. It looks like he's probably going to be a late round pick or an undrafted free agent.
