Mel Kiper 2012 NFL Mock Draft 1.0: Devon Still Of Penn State To Kansas City Chiefs

Rated as the top defensive tackle in the 2012 NFL Draft class by Mocking The Draft, former Penn State defensive lineman Devon Still is almost certain to hear his name called in the first round of April's draft.

In the Mel Kiper 2012 NFL Mock Draft 1.0, the ESPN analyst projects that Still will be selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the No. 11 pick.

Devon Still, DT, Penn St. Romeo Crennel could use a disruptive interior line presence in his system, and Still can be a penetrator in the 3-4, capable of occupying blockers and making plays in against the run while also splitting gaps against the pass. He came on in 2011 at Penn State and should help this defense up front, as the Chiefs also get Eric Berry back in the secondary in 2012. With this kind of reinforcement, the Chiefs have a chance to become an upper-echelon defense going forward, something they showed glimpses of this past season.
