Kansas City Chiefs 2012 #11 NFL Draft Pick

11. Dontari Poe - DT - Memphis.

The reason why the Chiefs drafted Poe was because they couldn't stop the run in a division filled with opponents with strong starting running backs. They needed a run-stuffer immediately. Poe's physical ability is so unique that he is able to pass rush effectively at around 350 lbs.

Are you ready for this bad pun? Poe will not be "poe" anymore. "Quoth the raven, Nevermore."
