2012 NFL Mock Draft: Chiefs Select NT Dontari Poe, Chargers Take C Peter Konz In PFW's 1st Mock

With the Denver Broncos taking Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechkly in ProFootbalWeekly's first 2012 NFL mock draft, where do the other teams in the AFC West look to improve those rosters? At No. 11 the Kansas City Chiefs take Memphis Tigers nose tackle Dontari Poe while at No. 18 the San Diego Chargers go with Wisconsin center Peter Konz.

For the Chiefs, the addition of Poe would help shore up the middle of its defensive line, and if they get a player who can play somewhat close to the level of the Baltimore Ravens' Haloti Ngata that would be a real coup. As for the Chargers, drafting Konz fills a need for the team by improving the offensive line. Many of Philip Rivers' problems came from working behind a weak offensive line. Plus, the team is losing its current centers to free agency.

The Oakland Raiders traded its first-round pick to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Carson Palmer trade. At No. 17, the Bengals select cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
