POE a DE?

I have seen many mock drafts projecting the Chiefs to take 6'6 , 311 pound DT RaShede Hageman with their 1st round pick. I have heard good things about Hageman, but didn't see the logic in taking a player who would be behind our resident man child Dontari Poe on the Chiefs depth chart. But then I started thinking about how Poe was regarded as a possible DE coming out of the draft due to his incredible combine performance. It got me thinking how this could possibly work. Well, possibly losing Tyson Jackson to free agency leaves the LDE position as a team need. If we are able to restructure some contracts, maybe we could find our FS, and WR (Maclin) in free agency, which would make sense with the usual learning curve for WR's being 2-3 seasons, and FS being a position that is suited for veterans who can diagnose the formation pre-snap to ensure being in the right defensive position. I would still wish for another DE to provide more depth or in case the Poe to DE experiment didn't work. The possibility of Poe seeing more 1 on 1 matchups from the DE position is enticing. With Houston and Hali getting so much attention, using someone like Hageman to engulf the double teams, Poe could be very disruptive from a DE position. Poe has such good feet, I think he is capable of handling his containment responsibilities. The Chiefs have several avenues to address the biggest team needs-WR, FS, DE,CB, LB. I'm not saying this is what KC should do, but its one of several possibilities.....
