Kansas City Chiefs: 6 Linebackers Who May Play Alongside Derrick Johnson in 2012

Going into this offseason, one of the top five needs for the Kansas City Chiefs was at the inside linebacker position.

KC is already set with Pro Bowler Derrick Johnson at one ILB slot, but the spot next to him is a much different story.

Fourth-year man Jovan Belcher has been playing at that inside linebacker spot for the past two seasons, and he hasn't exactly lit the world on fire for Kansas City's defense.

With several talented ILB prospects in this year's draft class, it may be time for the Chiefs to look to upgrade that position soon.

However, they could still re-sign Belcher, who is slated to be a restricted free agent when the free agency period begins next week. They also have veteran Brandon Siler, whom they re-signed near the end of last season.

Here are six players who may start next to Derrick Johnson on the Chiefs defense in 2012.
