NFL Draft 2015: Kansas City Chiefs will visit with Fresno State guard Cody Wichmann

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are meeting with Fresno State offensive lineman Cody Wichmann, according to the Fresno Bee. Wichmann played right guard at Fresno State.

NFL Draft Scout projects the 6'5, 319-pound lineman as a 5th-6th round pick. Others have him as a seventh round pick. The Chiefs will bring up to 30 prospects to their facility to visit with them but the prospects won't work out there.

Here's a nice piece on Wichmann from the Fresno Bee near the end of last season:

Wichmann will make his 50th and final start when Fresno State plays Rice at the Hawaii Bowl on Wednesday in Honolulu. He has never missed a game and will stand second behind linebacker Ben Jacobs (2007-2010) and his 52 career starts, breaking a tie with offensive lineman Ryan Wendell (2004-07), among Bulldogs players of the past eight years.

"Cody's started a lot games and been part of a lot of wins," third-year offensive line coach Cameron Norcross said. "Just quietly done his job, worked his tail off and didn't say a word. He's what we're all about."

The Chiefs have stocked up on the offensive line this offseason and particularly at guard with the additions of Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika. The Chiefs also have 2014 sixth round picks Zach Fulton and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. Then there's Jeff Allen who may or may not be moving to tackle. That's good competition at the guard position already. We'll see if the Chiefs add a late round piece for competition.
