The fifth pick is in and SB Nation's Chiefs community, Arrowhead Pride, has selected...
Alabama LB Rolando McClain
McClain has a couple of things going for him that make Kansas City a reasonable destination. First, McClain comes from a familiar defense. Pioli and Nick Saban have worked together, and Pioli usually doesn't stray far from what he knows. Second, McClain is the quarterback of the defense, so to speak, and the Chiefs place a premium on cerebral players who understand not just their position, but the entire defense. Third, McClain has experience in a similar type of defense the Chiefs are trying to run.
McClain would not only make an immediate impact, but he'll give the defense a tougher mentality. Rey Maualuga didn't have the best statistical season for the Bengals, but he gave their defense a nastier demeanor. McClain can do the same - and he's a far better player.
The Chiefs can go a lot of different ways here. Their weakest positions on defense were inside linebacker, safety and nose tackle. Filling any of those needs would work here.
