The Kansas City Chiefs took nose tackle Dontari Poe with the 11th pick in Thursday's draft. It is safe to assume that the Chiefs will not go after a defensive lineman in Friday night's continuation of the draft.

The Chiefs hold the No. 44 and No. 74 picks going into Friday's draft. This is where the Chiefs will pick; we can also expect to see Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli make some moves by making a trade.

If the Chiefs decide to keep their draft picks, here are two players the Chiefs could have on their board.

Among all the offensive linemen in this year’s draft, Cordy Glenn is one of the more versatile blockers coming out of college.

In 50 starts with Georgie, Glenn played left guard, right guard and left tackle and established himself as a dominant blocker, making him a favorite to be taken early Friday night.

Another offensive lineman the Chiefs could make a move for is Wisconsin center Peter Konz. With Casey Wiegmann will turn 39 years old in July and might not play a snap again in Kansas City.

Depending on how the Chiefs feel with last year's second-round pick, Rodney Hudson, the team may land Konz tonight, who is a strong and physical blocker.

In the third round, the Chiefs will go back to defense and try to tack on some bodies at defensive back for the 2012 season. Vanderbilt cornerback Casey Hayward went up against many talented SEC receivers in college and can carry that experience to Kansas City with Brandon Flowers and Stanford Routt.

Hayward has good speed and plays well in man coverage. If used right, he and Javier Arenas could see a lot of action at nickel cornerback.

Chiefs head coach and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel might want an inside linebacker in the third round if a cornerback or safety is not part of the plan.

Mychal Kendricks stood out at the combine among all linebackers this year. He played both inside and outside linebacker at California, giving the Chiefs a talented and versatile linebacker.

Kendricks could slowly push himself into a starter if Jovan Belcher does not play well this season.
