2013 NFL Draft: Sean Porter, Chiefs scheduled to meet

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs workout schedule continues with Texas A&M linebacker Sean Porter, who replaced Von Miller.

Texas A&M linebacker Sean Porter is the next player to be linked to the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Dallas Morning News reports that the Atlanta Falcons have already worked him out, the Dallas Cowboys will work him out on Wednesday and the Chiefs have scheduled a workout with him as well.

Porter is an outside linebacker who the Chiefs saw work out at the Texas A&M pro day. He's projected as a mid-round pick by analysts, the third or fourth round. He replaced Von Miller, the Denver Broncos 2011 first round pick, at Texas A&M. A scouting report:

The fact that he led the Big 12 with 9.5 sacks and was third in the conference with 17 tackles for loss as Miller's replacement at "joker" for the Aggies as a junior would seem to provide ample evidence that this comparison holds true. New head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff, however, thought Porter might be able to help more in coverage, assigning the pass rushing duties to 6-4, 250-pound junior Damontre Moore and asking Porter to play a more traditional outside linebacker role, similar to the role he'd originally played.

There are lots of highlights of Porter, including this one against Alabama last year, which shows some of his athleticism.

No word on when the workout will take place but the Chiefs are scheduled to work out his teammate, left tackle Luke Joeckel, on Friday.
