The 50th pick is in and SB Nation's Chiefs community, Arrowhead Pride, has selected...
Hillsdale OT Jared Veldheer
Neither one of the Chiefs' current right tackles is very good so the Chiefs will upgrade an average to below average offensive line with Hillsdale. Those two players mentioned before can fill in as stop gaps until Veldheer comes around, which he almost inevitably will.
Scott Pioli and Todd Haley don't care about name recognition or where a player went to school. They only care about the "right 53" and Veldheer fits that mold.
Teams picking late in the second round face a real quandary. A lot of them need an offensive tackle, but the dropoff at this point is huge. If the Chiefs did go tackle with this pick, Rodger Saffold might be a little better choice as he can start sooner. But Veldheer is a huge upside selection, so it's hard to dislike it too much. Veldheer has the potential to be to Kansas City what Sebastian Vollmer was to New England last year.
I like this pick because of Veldheer's upside as well. While the line needs an upgrade in Kansas City, there's no doubt they can enter the season with Ryan O'Callaghan as the starting right tackle if Veldheer needs some time. The Chiefs offensive line coach, Bill Muir, is one of the best in the business so I would feel good about leaving Veldheer's future in his hands.
