We passed along the latest 2012 NFL mock draft from both ESPN's Mel Kiper and NFL Network's Mike Mayock already so now it's time to take a look at a few more mock drafts floating around.

The popular pick is still Boston College LB Luke Kuechly, with a little David DeCastro mixed in.
Ryan at KC Chiefs Blog: Luke Kuechly

This just makes too much sense. One of the few glaring holes left in the Chiefs starting lineup is at inside linebacker next to Derrick Johnson. Kuechly can step in and play immediately, giving Kansas City one of the best group of linebackers in the NFL.

Memphis DT Dontari Poe is a possibility here, but the Chiefs could opt for the safer pick.
Luke Kuechly: Sticking to my guns on this one, with Scott Pioli's philosophy of building the "the right 53" playing right into this Ray Lewis-style linebacker.
Bill Williamson of ESPN.com: David DeCastro

Of the players who might reasonably be available to the Chiefs, a couple stand out in that category: Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly and Stanford guard David DeCastro. I'm going with Kuechly here because the Chiefs, who had the 26th best run defense in the league last year, need to get much better in that area and Kuechly can help. I just don't see Pioli going for a guard, even one with immense potential like DeCastro, with the 11th pick.
