Baylor DT Phil Taylor Works Out For KC Chiefs


I figured the Kansas City Chiefs would do this.

According to Aaron Wilson of National Football Post, Baylor DT Phil Taylor worked out for the Chiefs, as well as the Cleveland Browns and another AFC playoff team (New England is my guess if they're trying to keep it quiet). Taylor has six visits and five private workouts to this point.

Taylor is one of several nose tackles the Chiefs have checked out in the pre-draft process. We're not sure if they're prepared to pull the trigger on one at No. 21 but, if they do, Taylor will be an option. He's 6'3" and 334 pounds coming off of what was a solid pro day according to many accounts.

We don't know Ron Edwards future with the Chiefs but he is not under contract for 2011. I felt that Edwards would be fine on the line for another year if the Chiefs decided against drafting the nose tackle of the future in April. We'll see what happens there. It's one of the bigger question marks on this Chiefs team right now.

A few years ago, GM Scott Pioli was with the Patriots and used the 21st pick on a talented nose tackle out of Miami. The pick ended up being an OK one as the guy went to three Pro Bowls (so far).
