The Kansas City Chiefs are scheduled to work out Oklahoma tight end James Hanna, Scout.com reports. Hanna is a 6'4", 252 pound tight end who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds and has a 36.5 inch vertical, according to his Combine Numbers.

Obviously he's got some athleticism. He tells Scout.com that he's similar to some of the athletic tight ends we're seeing today like Aaron Hernandez and Vernon Davis. He didn't have a ton of production at Oklahoma catching 27 passes for 381 yards and two touchdowns last season. As a junior, he had 292 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.

The Chiefs seem set at tight end but Hanna is a late-round prospect so I doubt he'd be competing for a starting job in August. Kevin Boss signed this offseason and Tony Moeaki was drafted in 2010. Tight end seems set in the near future for the Chiefs but Hanna seems to offer a unique skill set, especially if the Chiefs start featuring more two tight end sets, as the Chiefs have hinted at this year. If the Chiefs plan on featuring the tight ends more in the future, then they'll need to start developing more tight ends.
