Will Chiefs give Prince royal treatment?

Let’s catch up on some of the more interesting visits that have been recently set up by AFC West teams:

Denver: The Broncos are reportedly going to visit with Oregon linebacker Casey Matthews. The word around the league is Matthews – the younger brother of Green Bay star linebacker Clay Matthews -- would be a perfect middle man for John Fox’s defense. He’d likely cost a second-round pick.

Kansas City: Surprisingly, the Chiefs are visiting with Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara. He is expected to go way before the Chiefs pick at No. 21 and it is not a big need position for the Chiefs. I’d be stunned if he ended up in Kansas City.

Here’s a visit that makes more sense for the Chiefs: Florida center Mike Pouncey. The Chiefs could use a guard/center and Pouncey is worth taking a look at.

Oakland: The Raiders have been predictably quiet about the players they are visiting with. In fact, in a radio interview, Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett rattled off the names of several teams he is set to visit with and then he dropped a juicy one. He said there was another visit that he couldn’t mention. It made me the think of the secretive Raiders, who could use a strong-armed quarterback prospect. I’m not saying Mallett will visit the Raiders. Just connecting the dots.

Anyway, here is a reported visit for Oakland: Clemson offensive tackle Chris Hairston. He is expected to be a mid-round pick.

San Diego: The Chargers are reportedly going to visit with California defensive end Cameron Jordan. That makes sense. Jordan should be one of the Chargers’ top targets with the No. 18 pick.

San Diego is also looking at Baylor guard Danny Watkins. He could be a target in the second round if he drops a bit. San Diego, along with Denver, is also looking at Miami defensive end Allen Bailey.
