Kansas City Chiefs 2024 Mock Draft (Taylor’s Version)

I don’t know about you, but the Kansas City Chiefs are feeling, err 32? Sorry, I’m just warming up! With the very last pick in round one of the NFL Draft, the back-to-back Super Bowl champions are looking for the infamous threepeat in 2024. This obviously means the draft will be an important piece in retooling for another run. Let’s take a look at a mock draft for Kansas City with accompanying Taylor Swift lyrics!

Kansas City Chiefs 2024 Mock Draft (Taylor’s Version)

NBC News

1-32: T’Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

“Endgame”

‘Big reputation, big reputation

Ooh, you and me, we got big reputations, ah.’

These lyrics scream double entendre! Sweat is a BIG guy and has a fabulous reputation. The winner of the Outland Trophy, which is given to the best lineman in the country, was earned by Sweat last season!

‘And you heard about me, ooh

I got some big enemies.’

If this doesn’t scream the Kansas City Chiefs-who are really taking on the role of NFL’s villain-then I don’t know what is! The idea of two “big reputations” coming together sounds like an unstoppable force.

2-64: Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

“Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince”

‘To see you there, to see you there. It’s been a long time coming.”

Okay, so this is a little hyperbolic as they did draft wide receiver Rashee Rice in the 2023 draft; but given the problems on offense with drops this year, Chiefs faithful are fiending for a new target for Mahomes. Not to mention, the Kansas City Chiefs released Marquez Valdez-Scantling last week. When you have PM10, you have to give him weapons. It’s as simple as that. To see Franklin thereby pick 64 would be great for Kansas City.

3-95: Dominick Puni, OL, Kansas

“Style”

‘We never go out of style. We never go out of style.’

Puni, oddly enough, has quite a body frame! He played guard, center, and tackle at the Senior Bowl. The versatility is a dream for any team in the league, let alone back-to-back Super Bowl champs. You have to do everything you can to continue to breed depth to keep the streak alive.

A good, multi-faceted offensive lineman never goes out of style.

4-133: Dallin Holker, TE, Colorado State

“Hits Different”

‘Dreams of your hair and your stare and sense of belief.’

Holker offers classic receiving skills and is that athletic guy you can trust. Plus, he has maybe the best mane in the draft class. To have this base set of skills and develop under Kelce would be a nice investment. We know tight ends like Travis Kelce don’t come around often and that’s okay. But what the Chiefs do need to do is start thinking of depth and their future without 87.

5-158 (via Dallas): Tommy Eichenberg, LB, Ohio State

“Look what you made me do”

‘But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time. I’m me, I rose up from the dead. I do it all the time.’

The OSU product defines toughness. The linebacker played multiple games with a broken hand in 2022 and later returned for the 2023 season after offseason surgery. Despite the circumstances, he plays relentlessly and would be a stud if Spags got his hands on him.

5-172: Kendall Milton, RB, Georgia

“The Man”

‘I’m so sick of running as fast as I can. Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man.”

Isaiah Pacheco is certainly a talent, but given the backup situation in Clyde Edwards-Helaire, this would be a smart move even if for the future. Pacheco is also approaching the mid-point of his rookie contract. Milton’s talent starts with his burst ability and ends with his outstanding blocking. His foot speed is nice; hence the running lyric from Ms. Swift! However, scouts are concerned with his speed down the stretch. Would be worth taking a chance on him as their last pick.
