The Kansas City Chiefs' college tour has hit Gainesville, Fla., as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the team’s brass is working out Florida defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd on Monday.

The Chiefs have the No. 1 overall pick in April's NFL draft and are doing their due dilligence. They are expected to work out up to 10 of the top prospects.

The most likely scenarios are for Kansas City to either draft Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel or look to trade the pick to the highest bidder. But Floyd has been a workout monster this offseason, and the Chiefs could be tempted to take him. Floyd has been listed as a favorite to land in Oakland with the No. 3 pick if he's still available.

In other AFC West news:

Tight end Kellen Winslow said the Oakland Raiders are among the teams that have expressed interest in him. He has been connected to the Raiders for about a week. The Raiders don’t have a proven in-house replacement for Brandon Myers, who signed with the Giants. Winslow played just one game last season because of a knee injury.

Former Oakland receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is visiting the Colts, and former Oakland safety Michael Huff is visiting his hometown Cowboys. Both players were cut recently.

Kansas City free agent defensive lineman Ropati Pitoitua has signed with the Titans.
