The Kansas City Chiefs are at the Senior Bowl this week in Mobile, Alabama. They'll be talking to a bunch of different prospects and watching them play live.
The Chiefs will talk with a lot of players so this doesn't necessarily mean anything but it's been reported that the Chiefs met with Alabama LB Reggie Ragland, who is ranked the eighth best player in the country by SB Nation's Dan Kadar. He is likely to be a first round pick and the Chiefs are selecting 28th.

Reggie Ragland said most teams he's spoken with at Senior Bowl envision him as a middle linebacker— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) January 25, 2016
Phil Savage on Reggie Ragland: 'Reggie has the size of a Mike and the speed of a Will, good combination linebacker who can make plays.'— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) January 25, 2016
A big, versatile linebacker from a big time college football team? Hmm, sounds a little bit like a guy we know -- Derrick Johnson. DJ is a free agent this year but free agency comes a month before the draft so the Chiefs will make a decision on DJ before then. Ragland is a really interesting prospect because DJ has shown the value you can add from that position, especially if you're as dynamic as him.
