Chiefs Expected To Visit With Idaho G Mike Iupati

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to bring in Idaho G Mike Iupati for a pre-draft visit, according to Scout.com.

Joining the Chiefs working out Iupati are expected to be the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Houston Texans, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That's 15 total teams.

Iupati is projected to be selected in the 16-23 range, according to Scout.com, so a visit with the Chiefs would be due diligence on the Chiefs part in the event Iupati falls or they can trade up or down.

Way back in January, SB Nation's draft blog, Mocking The Draft, compared him to a familiar player.

The question about Iupati is where to play him. His footwork, arm length and strength is so good he could probably play left tackle. Iupati could be the next Branden Albert – a solid tackle with little upside. Or he could stick at guard and start from Day 1.

I imagine the Chiefs won't get a shot at Iupati the way things stand now.
