Chiefs attend workout for a defensive lineman bigger than Dontari Poe

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City was one of 12 NFL franchises checking out Supplemental Draft prospect LaKendrick Ross.

The Kansas City Chiefs were one of 12 NFL teams checking in on the pro potential of former Virginia University of Lynchburg defensive lineman LaKendrick Ross on Monday, per a report at NFL Draft Diamonds. The Chiefs are doing their homework before the 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft, which will be held later this month.

According to the report, Ross stands 6'4 and 366 pounds. Or about 20 or 30 pounds more than Dontari Poe.

Along with the Chiefs, the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders were also in attendance. Other franchises sending scouts include the Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams, Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots and Chicago Bears.

Virginia University of Lynchburg is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association, and their schedule includes the likes of Kentucky Wesleyan, Livingstone College, and Alcorn State. That makes Ross the ultimate longshot/project. But one thing you cannot teach is size, and the Chiefs might decide to take a flier on a player like Ross.

It should be noted that the Chiefs will have extra picks in the 2015 NFL Draft due to compensations picks that will be coming their way after losing several key free agents. It will be some time until the exact amount is known, but John Dorsey likely realizes he's working from a position of strength in the 2015 Draft.

If the Chiefs were to pick Ross (or another player) in the Supplemental Draft, it would mean the forfeiture of that round's pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
