We have another name to add to the Kansas City Chiefs list of pre-draft interests -- Marvin McNutt. The former Iowa Hawkeyes receiver has met with the Chiefs, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, along with the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals. It's unclear if they met with him at Iowa or if this is one of the Chiefs 30 pre-draft visits.

The Chiefs sent quite the contingent to the Iowa pro day last month and we noted that McNutt was one of the players who would likely be drafted in April. NFL Draft Scout places him in the fifth round.

McNutt finished the 2011 season in record-breaking fashion catching 82 balls for 1,315 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was productive early in his career as well with 861 receiving yards in 2010 and 674 receiving yards in 2009. He was voted to the All-Big Ten team by both the coaches and the media. He holds Iowa records for single-season touchdowns (12) and career touchdowns (28).

The Chiefs have drafted an Iowa player in each of the last two years. Current Chiefs backup QB, Ricky Stanzi, could probably provide some insight on McNutt.

And, as you could probably guess, McNutt was a team captain at Iowa, which seems to matter with Chiefs draft prospects.
