With the 2014 NFL Draft for the Kansas City Chiefs knocking on the door, it’s fun to go back and revisit past NFL Drafts. I covered the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2013 draft class yesterday, which you can check out here.

2012′s draft class brought some decent players to Kansas City. There also have been some players who didn’t make the cut or are with other teams now.

The Kansas City Chiefs held the 11th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and selected nose tackle Dontari Poe out of Memphis. Poe was said to be a “boom or bust” type pick, which scared a lot of fans.

Poe had a breakout year in 2013 (his second year in the league) with 51 tackles, four and a half sacks, and his first invitation to the Pro Bowl (Source: Sports Reference). The sky’s the limit for Poe and there’s a very good chance that he’s only going to keep getting better throughout the next few years.

Jeff Allen was Kansas City’s second round pick, going 44th overall. Allen has started 27 games while in Kansas City and even switched from a tackle to a guard, which gave him more playing time. With the Chiefs losing several offensive linemen in free agency this off-season, expect Allen to have a big year in 2014.
