It's all starting to come together for the Kansas City Chiefs and the 2012 NFL draft. In the last 24 hours we've heard plenty of rumors that the Chiefs are interested in Alabama safety Mark Barron. Coincidentally (or not), the Dallas Cowboys are also interested in Barron, as are the San Diego Chargers. The Chiefs pick 11th while the Cowboys pick three spots later at No. 14 and the Chargers four picks after that at No. 18.
Ed Werder reported on ESPN that the Cowboys have talked to both the Chiefs and the Chargers about a potential trade.
For the Chiefs, the target could be Barron or DT Dontari Poe. The Cowboys are also connected to David DeCastro.
This would be a terrific situation for the Chiefs. Trading back, in my opinion, is the No. 1 option at this point as the Chiefs could pick up another mid-round pick. We saw what happened when they did this last yea, selecting a future starter in Justin Houston with that extra mid-round pick.
