2011 Senior Bowl: Chiefs Reportedly Talking To West Virginia's Noel Devine And Jock Sanders, Pitt's Jason Pinkston

The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly been talking to West Virginia running back Noel Devine and wideout Jock Sanders, as well as Pitt offensive lineman Jason Pinkston, at Senior Bowl practice. Pinkston is the highest-rated of the three, and could potentially be a second-round pick.

The Chiefs' interest in Devine and Sanders is a little strange - both are very small players (Devine is 5-foot-8, 180 pounds, while Sanders is 5-foot-7, 179), and the Chiefs already have a versatile small guy / running back / wideout / return threat / pest in Dexter McCluster, who they just drafted last year. Both Devine and Sanders are late-round guys, though, so for the Chiefs, it might not be a matter of filling an immediate need so much as acquiring depth.

(By the way, I wouldn't rule out the Chiefs picking yet another local player, Pitt's Jon Baldwin, in the first round, if he falls to them at the end of the first round. They need a wide receiver and Baldwin will probably be the best one available if he's still on the board when the Chiefs pick.)
