Kansas City Chiefs meet with one of the top guards at the NFL Combine

AJ Cann is rated in the second round by NFL Draft Scout.

The Kansas City Chiefs NFL Combine interviews continue. Just a reminder that the Chiefs will formally interview 60 players at the NFL Combine and then they'll visit others and bring others in for workouts. So an interview at the Combine doesn't necessarily trigger a high level of interest.

With that said, theres a report of the Chiefs meeting with another offensive linemen, which should be music to the ears of any Chiefs fan who watched the 2014 season. Per Herbie Teope, the Chiefs worked out South Carolina G AJ Cann.

He is one of Terez Paylor's favorite guards. NFL Draft Scout gives him a second round grade. And speaking of the second round, this is the first time in the John Dorsey / Andy Reid era that the Chiefs will have a second round pick. They gave up two for Alex Smith before the 2013 draft.

The Chiefs clearly need an offensive line investment. Jeff Allen and Zach Fulton are among those returning guards next season but the Chiefs need more depth there. Allen, by the way, has one more year left on his contract so they'll need to prepare for the future too.
