New Fox Mock Draft Has Chiefs Taking Anthony Davis in First Round

New, comments

Of course, there's a million mock drafts flying around - whether ones made up by our own AP faithful or those on every sports-related blog, site or 'zine available. And thus far, the Chiefs - since they choose in the first five picks - usually are focused on the same players in each draft. But Fox Sports put up a nice mock recently that has the Chiefs selecting some different flavors.

In particular, they have us going offensive line at #5, but not who you think. Instead of the oft-cited Russell Okung from Oklahoma State, they have the Chiefs selecting tackle/behemoth Anthony Davis from Rutgers. The full argument:

"Kansas City's O-line is still a work in progress, and although Oklahoma State's Russell Okung may be the "safer" bet at OT, Davis has unlimited potential. A stud in high school in New Jersey and a mauling presence on the left side of the Rutgers offensive line for the past three seasons, Davis developed into one of the country's top underclassmen in '09. He's more than an imposing presence; at 6-6, 330 lbs -- he's a monster. After a few dominant individual workouts, I look for Davis to leapfrog Okung on draft day boards and end up in Chiefs red. They'll move Branden Albert back to his natural position (guard) or to right tackle and give Davis the keys to Matt Cassel's blind side."

What do you guys think? Do you believe this is possible? And from what you know at this point, would you rather have Okung or Davis?
