Alabama LB Rolando McClain Visiting At Least Four Teams

New, comments

I've gone on record to say that I think Alabama LB Rolando McClain will be the Kansas City Chiefs pick at fifth overall.

Here's the bulk of my reasoning (Cheap plug for my work over at the SBNation.com draft page).

Now McClain is starting to make some pre-draft visits -- but not with the Chiefs (that we know of).

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami-Herald, McClain spent the last two days in Miami visiting the Dolphins. They're expected to put some serious thought into drafting him at the 12th pick if he's available.

He'll also be visiting the Giants on April 12th as well as the Jaguars and Falcons, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News.

McClain has 3-4 experience at Alabama so I'm surprised we're not seeing more 3-4 teams on there (or, more likely, they're just not being reported yet).

It's very possible -- or likely -- that he'll be visiting the Chiefs at some point. He's regarded as one of the top prospects and plays at a position that's perceived to be a need for the Chiefs so it makes sense.

Stay tuned for more on McClain as we make our way to April 22nd.
