Chiefs Not Visiting With Gerald McCoy Either

New, comments

We pointed out this morning that the Kansas City Chiefs have not scheduled a visit with Tennessee DT Dan Williams, who is largely considered one of the top two nose tackles in the NFL draft.

We've got another big name who has no scheduled visit to Kansas City -- Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy.

McCoy was never likely an option for the Chiefs for a couple of reasons.

First, he's widely expected to be taken within the top three picks which would make him unavailable to the Chiefs.

Second, he's not a nose tackle. In a chat on NFL.com today, McCoy was asked what position he might play in a 3-4 defense and said right end.

Defensive end is one of the few positions we can almost assuredly say they will not draft.

Glenn Dorsey, 2008 5th overall pick, and Tyson Jackson, 2009 3rd overall pick, are young and come with hefty salaries so they're not going anywhere. In addition to that, the Chiefs used a third round pick on Alex Magee last year.

McCoy has visited the Lions and Redskins and still has plans to visit the Rams and Bucs.
