I post this as some good Scout work could find players in later rounds or undrafted FA's that could fill KC needs.

2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Terrance Taylor, DT, Michigan 6'0 - 319 lbs.
Combine scores 5.24 in 40 and 37 reps at 225 Round 4-5

The University of Michigan's Terrance Taylor is a phenomenal athlete.
Aside from being a top football recruit out of high school, Taylor was
also a three time state power lifting champion in Michigan, and the
undefeated heavyweight state wrestling champion as a senior. Taylor's
training as a wrestler has helped his football tremendously, because of
the sports focus on positioning, balance and technique. His massive frame
has allowed him to eat up blockers during his collegiate career, even
while playing the nose tackle in former coach Lloyd Carr's 3-4 defense.
Taylor has played in 47 games during his career as a Wolverine,
registering 104 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, and has
batted down 3 passes at the line of scrimmage. His athletic ability
has even made a difference for the Michigan special teams unit,
where he blocked two kicks during his junior year and 1 as a senior.
Taylor will provide whichever NFL team that drafts him with some versatility.
He would be perfect in a 4-3 system with a smaller pass rushing tackle at his side,
and is very comfortable playing nose tackle in the 3-4 alignment.
Taylor also has the size/speed combination that could cause offenses nightmares
if he lined up as a huge 3-4 defensive end at times. If he works out well and
can run a 4.8 second 40 at the combine (his unofficial best time),
his stock would sky rocket. Taylor could go anywhere in the second to fourth round,
depending on the demand for defensive tackles at the top of the draft.
 Terrance Taylor participated in the East-West Shrine Game in January.
Taylor proved during the week of practice to be extremely tough to block one on one.
During the weekend's game, Taylor recorded 3 tackles and showed the ability to
take on multiple blockers so his linebackers were free to make plays.


Will Johnson, DT, Michigan 6'4 - 281 lbs.
Pro day combined score of 61.4 and not even a top 200 prospect.

 University of Michigan strongman defensive tackle Will Johnson flexed his
muscles at his campus Pro Day in a performance reminiscent of weightlifters
Hans and Franz of old Saturday Night Live fame. Johnson bench pressed 225
pounds a staggering 47 times, according to Gil Brandt of
It's believed to be a record for an incoming NFL draft prospect,
according to NFL Draft Scout. The 6-foot-4, 281-pound defensive lineman
ran the 40-yard dash in 5.07 and 5.1 seconds, had a 9-4 broad jump,
a 4.61 time in the short shuttle and a 7.5 in the three-cone drill.

I imagine that there are some players out there at WR, LB, and O-line also.
