Chiefs Work Out Indiana OT Rodger Saffold

The Kansas City Chiefs worked out last week a rising NFL draft prospect out of Indiana.

Rodger Saffold has had a solid offseason, according to Chris Steuber of Starting out, he was projected by many as a 3rd-4th round pick but after a few good workouts there's talk he'll be picked higher than that.

The Chiefs worked him out last week although he's got plenty of tape.

Saffold was a four-year starter. He had over 40 starts in his career.

He's good sized -- 6'5" and 316 pounds -- but can apparently play the position well enough to start for four years in a major conference.

I always think the safer picks are those that have a ton of college tape. There's not much to know at these workouts when you've got 41 games of tape you can watch.

Saffold is a good example of that.

It's also interesting that the Chiefs, who have added two offensive lineman in the last week, are taking a closer look at a Saffold, Vladimir Ducasse and other offensive linemen who are expected to go in the 2nd round or later.
