2011 NFL Mock Drafts: Mel Kiper, Todd McShay On Chiefs' 21st Pick

New, comments

ESPN's draft experts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay came out with their latest 2011 NFL mock drafts last week and, not surprisingly, they disagree on where the Kansas City Chiefs will go with the pick. As we've noted, there doesn't seem to be a consensus on which way the Chiefs will go.

Kiper says it'll be OLB Akeem Ayers and he must be confident because he's had Ayers as the pick for some time now. McShay mocks OT Gabe Carimi to the Chiefs, which is an understandable pick.

The fans reading this blog would disagree with this a little bit. We posted a poll a couple weeks ago asking which position the Chiefs should address. 34 percent said defensive line (nose tackle) while 29 percent said outside linebacker and only 17 percent offensive tackle.

The problem is that with every pick comes more questions. If it's nose tackle, what does that mean for Ron Edwards? If it's outside linebacker, what does that mean for Andy Studebaker and Mike Vrabel? If it's offensive line, what does that mean for Brandon Albert and Barry Richardson?

If we knew specifically how the Chiefs felt about those players then it would be a little easier to make a guess at where they'll go on April 28.
