NFL Mock Draft, Pick 36: Chiefs Select Nate Allen, S USF

The 36th pick is in and SB Nation's Chiefs community, Arrowhead Pride, has selected...

USF S Nate Allen

From Arrowhead Pride:

He was a respected team leader at USF and responsible for calling the plays on defense. This means he's not just an athlete, but an athlete with a head on his shoulders. Like McClain, Allen appears to understand the game - something on which the Chiefs place a high priority.    

From Mocking the Draft:

If a free safety is the choice for Kansas City, I much prefer Morgan Burnett of Georgia Tech. He's more of a playmaker than Allen. Still, either player would be better what the team has on its roster. It might also be hard to pass up on Damian Williams, who looks like a Derrick Mason clone in the making.     

The choice here really comes down to receiver or safety -- both major areas of need for the Chiefs. At least for the 2010 season, the Chiefs may be able to get by with Dwayne Bowe and Chris Chambers at receiver so safety it is for the Chiefs.
