The Kansas City Chiefs sent shockwaves through the NFL last week when they dealt WR Tyreek Hill to Miami. Now, the AFC runner-ups will seek to take their massive amount of draft capital and restock the depth chart.
The Chiefs have six picks in the first three rounds. They have eight picks through the first four rounds, and twelve altogether.
Let’s see how it plays out.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS: 7-ROUND MOCK DRAFT
1-29: Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State
1-30: Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida
The early bet is that the Chiefs will go WR with one of their two first round selections but I think they can wait. Instead, I believe opting for a high upside pass rusher like Arnold Ebiketie and a size/speed freak corner like Elam is the way to go.
2-50: John Metchie III, WR, Alabama
2-62: Calvin Austin III, WR, Memphis
Kansas City can afford to wait until the second-round to address the wide receiver position. They have Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Mecole Hardman, and J.J. Smith-Schuster on the roster currently (and Josh Gordon if you want to count that). However, adding a productive route technician like Metchie and a slot receiver nightmare like Austin will make Patrick Mahomes smile ear-to-ear.
THE REST OF THE DRAFT
3-94: Markquese Bell, S, Florida A&M
3-103: Brian Robinson Jr., RB, Alabama
4-121: Chigoziem Okonkwo, TE, Maryland
4-135: Chris Paul, G, Tulsa
7-233: Samori Toure, WR, Nebraska
7-243: Nick Zakelj, G, Fordham
7-251: Nate Landman, LB, Colorado
7-259: Reed Blankenship, S, Middle Tennessee
