Round 6: Pick 193 | Devante Davis, WR, UNLV

We’re coming down the home stretch of the draft and Davis shows up as the top-rated player at this point in the sixth-round. He has impressive physical tools, but has real issues with consistency. I watched game tape of Davis in both the Arizona and Northern Illinois contests from his final year in college. The matchup with NIU is a microcosm for who Davis is a prospect. He posted a three touchdown day against the Huskies, but lost a jump ball situation late in the game that helped seal the Rebels’ fate in a September home loss. Davis runs a limited route tree and appears to have intermittent issues with concentration. I saw several passes dropped as a result of not looking the ball all the way into his hands.

Round 6: Pick 217 | Trenton Brown, OT, Florida

Brown is yet another massive guard prospect who’ll definitely pass the eye test with Andy Reid. What he lacks is the technique and polish to be an immediate contributor in his rookie season. The best part of Brown’s game at this stage of his playing career is sheer power. He’ll need a year or two to develop into a more multi-faceted player. He can be a road grader in the run game, but he leaves much to be desired as a pass protector.

Round 7: Pick 233 | Chad Hamilton, C, Coastal Carolina

The final player selected in this mock is a smart, athletic offensive lineman out of Coastal Carolina. Hamilton may lack ideal size and length, but he possesses the awareness and footwork necessary to help make up for it. He’s a good ZBS fit for Reid’s offensive line and would give Eric Kush legitimate competition at center with time in an NFL strength program and the opportunity to learn the position. He earned all-conference honors his final two years of college.

Here’s a recap of all ten picks (far-right column):

I have concerns that my adherence to a strict BPA program created a surplus at a couple of different positions while ignoring others altogether (like inside linebacker, tight end, and safety). A number of these picks give the Chiefs excellent positional depth, but some of them are far too raw to be counted on as anything more than developmental players early in their careers. You won’t be surprised by this, but I’m much more fond of my original mock.
