Matt Miller Releases Seven-Round Mock, KC Goes Receiver


Bleacher Reports’ Matt Miller released a seven-round mock draft today ahead of the NFL Draft on Thursday. As with all of the mock drafts (seemingly) Kansas City goes wide receiver in the first round. Things take a somewhat interesting turn after round three, however.

Here’s Miller’s picks, and here is where you can read about Miller’s thought process behind the Chiefs’ draft.

First Round: WR Brandin Cooks

Third Round: FS Ed Reynolds

Fourth Round: DE Josh Mauro

Fifth Round: CB Andre Hal

Sixth Round: ILB Avery Williamson

Sixth Round: CB Walt Aikens

Five defensive players and three defensive backs for the Chiefs’ in Miller’s draft. Given how many defensive backs the Chiefs use on any given play, depth in the secondary is not a terrible idea. However, one would think Kansas City would use at least one pick on an offensive lineman.

For the seven billionth time, I’m anti-wide receiver in the first round. Cooks is the best fit of the top receivers if the Chiefs choose to go that way, so I’m fine with the pick in that regard.

What do you think? Are you on board with the three defensive backs idea?

    I wish Ben……I wish.

    • Justin

      I agree I lik cooks nd believe he should be our pick if he’s available

  • Michael Shaw

    Meh. Still think our best choice in round #1 is Su’A Filo.

  • tm1946

    If he is correct, should run out and buy a lottery ticket. With all the picks prior to this one, to get it right is a huge swag.

    Here is what I want. First a trade!!! KC trades Eric Berry to the Lions for Suh!! We get the DL warrior we need and they get an all pro S. Here is how my mock went.
    Justin Gilbert CB
    Terrence Brooks S
    Antone Exum CB
    Josh Huff WR
    Cornelius Lucas OL
    Ryan Carrethers DT

    Free agents local flavor MU Britt and Washington if not drafted. Brown WR Pitt St. All 3 could start with the Chiefs if they work hard.

    With this trade we get a monster in the middle and lose a big salary. We get younger in the secondary with Flowers and Smith possibly gone next year. Lucas is a big body OL and Carrethers is a fatty to clog the middle when Poe needs a breather.

    Suh would not be welcome in KC hes the dirtiest player in the NFL and hes not avaliable anyway.We score points just fine we need Defense.Did you guys begging for a Wr watch us score 30pts last yr only to give up 40?Our secondary is bad all the way around.What part of that points to we need a WR in the 1st round??? Later in the draft yes or maybe a guy like Archer to take DMCs placeI think Jenkins will contribute this year.Im game for trading Berry if we can gain a couple picks and free up some money.Hes horrid in pass coverage and contributes big time in giving up 3rd and 10s to the TE.And looks like were gunna need a QB also.If we could get a 2nd rounder and get Carr there id be stoked.I also would like to give Bray a shot so wed have a couple choices.

    • micah stephenson

      I’d welcome and I want Suh. He would b a bad mutha beep at 3-4 DE at Arrowhead with our crowd playing between Tamba and Poe. Suh and Poe inside on the subs packs. Omg! A lil nastiness, tuffness, attitude. It what you want. Chior boys like DJ is cool. But you need a few Ray Lewis attitude type dudes on defense. You want players on d that have a mean streak. What if we Drafted Arron Donald and our dline was Suh Poe Donald. Ew weee!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Not bad.

  • sidibeke

    I do like the D heavy picks, but I also think they should add an o lineman to the mix; I wouldn’t mind seeing some depth at RB either.

  • Outback Chief

    1st rd.
    Kyle Fuller
    Odell Beckham Jr
    Ryan Shazier
    Calvin Pryor
    or if a QB that they have a high rating on falls here

    The Chiefs of course might trade here for more picks but not likely

  • Bizoza

    I am all for a safety or corner in the first round, but receiver is a definite need. Gotta say that I love the black OSU uniforms though.
