NFL Combine 2014: Kansas City Chiefs interview an offensive lineman

The Kansas City Chiefs are at the NFL Combine and interviewed offensive tackle Billy Turner.

North Dakota State offensive tackle Billy Turner spoke with the Kansas City Chiefs at the 2014 Senior Bowl and on Thursday said he spoke with the Chiefs again this week at the NFL Combine, according to Herbie Teope of Chiefs Spin, who is covering the action in Indianapolis. Matthew Fairburn of SBNation.com reports the Green Bay Packers were also one of the teams he's talked with.

Turner is an intriguing prospect as an offensive tackle. He played left tackle in college but could project to guard in the NFL depending on who selects him.

He is projected as a 2-3rd round pick, according to NFL Draft Scout. The Chiefs, as you know, don't have a second round pick this year due to the Alex Smith trade last year. Remember that draft projection is still an early one. Last year at this time no one had Eric Fisher going No. 1 overall, so plenty can change.

The Chiefs have needs at both tackle and guard entering the offseason. At tackle, Branden Albert is likely gone, which leaves presumed starters Donald Stephenson and Eric Fisher. They still need a swing tackle as we learned last year when backup Donald Stephenson started seven games.

The Chiefs also have a need at guard but that depends on what they do in free agency. Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah are both scheduled to be free agents, which leaves starter Jeff Allen and inexperienced backup Rishaw Johnson, among others.
