KC Chiefs Draft Interests Continue To Heat Up

New, comments

We are four days and counting until the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft and our Kansas City Chiefs draft interests table is filled with 38 prospects.

That's 38 prospects the Chiefs have either held an official visit with (Each NFL team gets 30 official visits), visited their Pro Day, interviewed them at the NFL Combine or Senior Bowl, or we found rumored interest by the Chiefs.

As always, this is a group project. Please add the prospects we've missed in the comments. Note: If the Chiefs just visited a player's Pro Day, I'm not listing that player here.


Previous Chiefs Draft Interests: 2011, 2010 and 2009

I'd like to add more to this post but a busy week lies ahead. Meeting up with Joel in New York tomorrow and then heading back to DC in the same day. I should get home at 1:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday. So I'm resting up tonight.

Check out the full draft table after the jump.
