So who would make a good fit for the Kansas City Chiefs at 18? One intriguing option is Minnesota’s Maxx Williams. Williams is ranked as the number one tight end for Mike Mayock’s player rankings. He put up impressive stats at the 2015 NFL Combine, running the 40-yard dash in 4.78, which was the fastest posted time for a tight end. Though Williams lacks a certain finesse on his route running, his speed creates separation from linebackers and safeties. He would be another big target in the red zone. Williams, teamed up with current tight end Kelce, would give the Chiefs a formidable, one-two punch of tight ends that this team lacks.
In the end, it is unlikely the Chiefs will use the 18th pick on Williams or another tight end, however, it would also not be shocking to see them go a different route than what is expected. So, maybe there is a chance the Chiefs could use this pick to select another tight end, one with high-end potential for success for the Chiefs in 2015.
