The start of the second round of the 2012 NFL draft is coming up here pretty shortly at 6:00 p.m. Arrowhead Time. We'll see both the second and third rounds tonight so it'll be twice as busy as Thursday's first round.
While we wait, here's a list of the Chiefs second and third round picks in the Scott Pioli era.
The best year continues to be the 2010 draft. The Chiefs third round picks (Jon Asamoah and Tony Moeaki) are turning into solid starters when healthy. The third round of the 2011 draft looks very promising as well with Justin Houston and Allen Bailey. These two rounds look like Pioli's sweet spot for finding a solid starter.
The full list is after the jump. What jumps out at you?
Round 2: Trade (QB Matt Cassel)
Round 3: DT Alex Magee
Round 3: G Jon Asamoah, TE Tony Moeaki
Round 2: G Rodney Hudson
Round 3: LB Justin Houston, DT Allen Bailey
