6 Questions For Chiefs Draft Pick Donald Stephenson

Continuing on with our series of six questions for every Kansas City Chiefs draft pick. We did first round pick Dontari Poe on Monday and second round pick Jeff Allen on Tuesday. Today, we move onto Donald Stephenson, offensive tackle out of Oklahoma, who was selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Our six questions come via Michael Holley's "War Room".

Previous posts in our 6 Questions series: Dontari Poe, Jeff Allen.

What will this player's role be as a Chief?

Offensive tackle. More specific, swing tackle. Stephenson will provide depth at offensive tackle, both on the left and right side. As of now, that's his role.

Will the role change from year one to year two?

Probably not. If Branden Albert were under contract, then I'd say definitely not. But I suppose with Albert's situation still up in the air -- his contract is up after this season -- Stephenson could potentially have his role changed in year two. I don't think that's the way the Chiefs are drawing it up but until Albert's situation is resolved then we can't rule that out.

How many downs can he be expected to play?

All three, if need be.

Which current player on the roster will he beat out?

David Mims, who is the third offensive tackle on the roster, or the next man up competing for the swing tackle spot. As a third round pick, Stephenson is the leader for that spot on the active roster.

What's his value on special teams?

Little. Field goal unit.

Does he have positional versatility?

Yes. We haven't completely figured this out yet but he could play on the right or left side. That's the implication when Chiefs GM Scott Pioli called him a potential swing tackle.
