Another day, another pre-draft visit for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have been connected to one Oklahoma player over the weekend -- TE James Hanna -- and now we have news of another Oklahoma playing drawing interest from KC. According to Aaron Wilson of, the Chiefs have a pre-draft visit set up with OT Donald Stephenson out of Oklahoma.

Stephenson had a terrific Combine running the fastest 40-yard dash of any offensive lineman (4.94 seconds) which is impressive considering his size -- 6'6" and 312 pounds.

He described his style of play to Wilson:

"I'm a very athletic, physical player. I play with a mean streak. I love to study the game. I'm always trying to get better. I'm a good guy around the locker room. I want to be in this for the long haul. I don't want to make this an average NFL career. I want to be in this for 10, 15 years. I want to help a team and be there for a long time."

He says all the things, that's for sure. He has a visit with the Cleveland Browns and also has private workouts with the Browns, Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons.

He's expected to be a mid-round pick -- third or fourth round -- according to NFL draft scout. The Chiefs have just three offensive tackles under contract -- OT Brandon Albert, OT David Mims and OT Eric Winston. Albert and Winston are the starters but the Chiefs need some depth behind them. And Albert also has a contract that runs out after the 2012 season so the Chiefs need to be thinking about the future here, which is what they might be doing with Stephenson.
