NFL mock draft roundup: Chiefs get variety of players


The Kansas City Chiefs are a complete enigma. The 2015 NFL Draft is only a week away, and nobody has any idea what general manager John Dorsey is going to do. Kansas City does not have many needs for starters, yet can use plenty of reinforcements on both sides of the ball.

Many believe the Chiefs will be taking a corner in the first round with center, receiver and inside linebacker also at the top of the list. Let’s go around the web and see who is saying what:

Daniel Jeremiah, Malcom Brown, DT, Texas

The only question with Brown is how to does fit in? Dorsey does like to make picks with a long-term view, though, and Brown could replace Mike DeVito soon. Jeremiah also has Eric Rowe, a corner from Utah, going to Kansas City in the second round. I disagree. Why? Eric Kendricks is the next pick off the board.

Bucky Brooks, Nelson Agholor, WR, USC

Agholor is screaming up the draft boards lately, and finds himself going to the Chiefs here. Agholor is a polished route-runner with great hands and effortless speed. Reminds this guy of Reggie Wayne.

Lance Zierlein, Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State

This would be a huge get for Kansas City. Waynes is considered by most to be the best corner in the draft and could be a nice fit in Bob Sutton’s defense. Waynes would step in and play significant snaps immediately.

Doug Farrar, Sports Illustrated: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State

Strong is a big-bodied receiver, but he is also rated anywhere between the fourth and seventh-best receiver in the draft. Is that really what you want with the 18th overall pick?

Rob Rang, CBS Sports: Eric Rowe, CB, Utah

This seems a bit high for Rowe, who is projected as a second-round pick. I love the position, not in love with the player. However, Rang has Strong going to the Chiefs in the second round. Interesting.

Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest

Brugler did an interview here at Arrowhead Addict last week and explained this pick among other topics. It’s a good read, check it out. In the second round, Brugler has Kansas City snagging wide receiver/tight end Devin Funchess.

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh

Clemmings has talent but is extremely raw. Considering how much better Kansas City needs to be on the offensive line, immediately, I’m not sure how much Clemmings helps.

Will Brinson, CBS Sports: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma

Ah, the ultimate boom-or-bust pick. I’m not a fan of guys with off-the-field trouble, but I might roll the dice on this kid. At 6’5 and 237 pounds, he could be an absolutely devastating force.
