Former Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly is projected by Don Banks to be selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the No. 11 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft in the latest Sports Illustrated mock draft (via SI).
Banks said about Kuechly
If the Chiefs aren't upwardly mobile in pursuit of quarterback Ryan Tannehill (see No. 7 Jacksonville), upgrading at inside linebacker with Kuechly would be a well-received pick. Again, I'm dropping boom-bust DT prospect Dontari Poe past a team that was thought be interested in him at one point this scouting season. Stanford guard David DeCastro is another sound option.
Looking back at past mock drafts from various outlets, the Chiefs are a frequent destination for Kuechly. The BC standout seems destined to be a Top 15 pick. Other teams that came up in other mock drafts were the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals.
