NCAA Football: Oregon State at Oregon Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are hosting a defensive lineman on a pre-draft visit. Per NFL Draft Diamonds and the KC Star's Terez Paylor, Oregon State DT Kyle Peko has a pre-draft visit scheduled with the Chiefs.

Last name sound familiar? He's the cousin of Bengals DT Domata Peko. Kyle stands 6'1 and is listed at 305 pounds. His NFL.com scouting report sounds like a John Dorsey type of player where he may not have the physical skills but he was productive. "I don't know what you do with him because of his size, but he was a challenge for everyone to block in the conference," one scout said in the NFL.com piece. He was also ineligible for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

These are the types of players you bring in for a visit -- flashes of potential but more information is needed.
