NFL Mocks Drafts Six For Kansas City Chiefs


Joe Wedra over at FanSided’s NFL Mocks posted their mock draft for the Chiefs in all seven – or in the Chiefs’ case, six – rounds. And unlike some other draft we saw recently, this one makes a bit more sense.

Here are the six picks from Wedra:

First Round: Marquise Lee, WR, USC
Third Round: Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida
Fourth Round: Yawin Smallwood, LB, Connecticut
Fifth Round: James Hurst, OT, North Carolina
Sixth Round: Russell Bodine, OL, North Carolina
Sixth Round: Matt Hazel, WR, Coastal Carolina

A two wide receiver, two offensive lineman draft makes sense for the Chiefs. Both of the offensive linemen picked should be at least viable backups early. Lee would be productive for the Chiefs if he can stay healthy and Marcus Roberson could develop into one of those tweener corner/safeties the Chiefs like to have on the field.

The only real problem I have with this draft is Smallwood, who doesn’t really fit the Chiefs’ needs at linebacker and is probably being over-drafted in the fourth round. Kansas City would do better to use that spot to look for a pass rusher or maybe grab another corner or safety.

Hazel is a really interesting guy to keep an eye on. He’s 6-1, 200 pounds and runs a quick 4.46 40, so the measurables are good. There is some development needed, specifically with getting stronger, but he has great hands by all accounts and would be a very good underneath threat to go with – in the scenario – a deep threat in Lee.

There is a lot of size/speed combinations in this draft that are really interesting at all rounds of the draft. Kansas City could really help themselves at wide receiver next weekend.

    Aside from the Roberson and Bodine picks? Meh.

    Not all that fond of Lee but I will buy into whoever DorseyReid pick, Hoping for the first pick to be better than Lee. All the picks really depend on what other teams do or value.

    First, Cook is better than Lee at WR; college production, route running (Alex throws it on a dime), FIT FOR OUR SYSTEM. Your third round pick Roberson has a lagging injury problem and won’t be a day one starter plus has limited upside. I want a starter with better than average cover skills like Marqueston Huff CB/FS or Brock Vereen FS, or Rashassad Reynolds CB. Everyone is throwing the rock and coverage skills are ranked ahead of tackling skills. The later rounds for the chiefs will involve 2-3 lineman which the scouting department has determined to be diamonds in the rough, primary very good athletes who need to add weight to their frame to play line in the NFL.

    Weakest part of team was pass rush. You picked no one to help that.
