2011 NFL Draft: One Last Phil Taylor To Chiefs Prediction

New, comments

And we have at least one more 2011 NFL draft rumor before this thing kicks off.

The last few weeks and months have been filled with many mock drafts predicting the Kansas City Chiefs first round draft pick will be Baylor DT Phil Taylor.

In the last week or so, though, folks have cooled on the Taylor-to-KC talk. It seems that many are transitioning to an offensive tackle, such as Wisconsin OT Gabe Carimi, becoming GM Scott Pioli's pick.

In an effort to confuse you as much as possible, Peter King of SI.com brings us back to Taylor in a Twitter posting this evening.

Kansas City, at 21, may be a good match with Baylor NT/DT Phil Taylor. Hear KC's very interested in him.

King doesn't usually throw things out there just to see how they look. He's usually got some solid information so this is something to keep in mind as we count down the hours minutes until the start of the draft.

The good news is that we'll know by tonight whether the Chiefs like him enough to draft him.
