It's hard to argue with adding defensive line talent to a unit that has mostly under-achieved in the Scott Pioli era.
When the Chiefs added pass rusher Justin Houston earlier in the third round they must have felt giddy when Allen Bailey was still on the board.
Rated as the tenth best defensive end most NFL scouts and Mock Drafts had Bailey being drafted in the top half of the second round.
He's not flashy but he's a solid defensive end that has a knack for making plays behind the line of scrimmage. And though some feel he doesn't have the stamina to be an every down defensive end, the Chiefs have to feel that he could serve as a perfect back-up and insurance policy to 2009 first round pick, Tyson Jackson.
What Bailey does is occupy opposing lineman which allow free flowing access to the linebackers behind him.
He's perfectly suited for the Chiefs 3-4 defense and pound for pound he might be one of the strongest players in the third round. This is a good value pick for the Chiefs and a player, like Houston, that will learn from the tutelage of Romeo Crennel.
