NFL Draft 2012, Vontaze Burfict: Kansas City Chiefs A Possible Draft Destination?

Will Vontaze Burfict be drafted by an NFL team come April 26th? There are serious doubts on whether the former Arizona State Sun Devil will be a productive player at the next level. Once considered a top-ten pick at this time in 2011, Burfict's draft stock has been sliding since then, and slid even further after an underwhelming Pro Day performance in early March.

ESPN.com's Bill Williamson speculated on Burfict's fit with different AFC West teams. The best fit for Burfict? The Kansas City Chiefs.

This is an interesting fit. The Chiefs could use an inside linebacker for their 3-4 system. Burfict would benefit from playing for Romeo Crennel. The Chiefs gambled and scored with outside linebacker Justin Houston in the third round last year. (Via: ESPN.com)

According to NFL Network's Steve Wyche, Burfict has been removed from some team's NFL draft boards already:
