Chiefs mock draft: Taylor Decker gets the nod


Over the course of the past two weeks, we have been putting together a mock draft at FanSided, with experts from each team site getting to make their picks. When the Kansas City Chiefs went on the clock at No. 28, yours truly had to make the call between Kendall Fuller, Robert Ndemkiche and Taylor Decker, among others.

As you probably guessed from the title of this piece, I went with Decker. While Fuller could very well fill a need and Ndemkiche could be the best defensive player in the draft, Decker is a very good prospect who fills a certain need. The Chiefs have to improve the right side of the offensive line, and Decker would fit the bill.

Having playing his college career at Ohio State, Decker is a champion who has ample experience in pressure moments. He also demonstrates the skills to handle the run and pass-blocking, giving Jamaal Charles open lanes and Alex Smith some more time to throw. With a better offensive front, Kansas City becomes that much more dangerous.

It will be intriguing to see if general manager John Dorsey goes with linemen early and often in the 2016 NFL Draft, or if he decides to fill those needs in free agency. In a few weeks, we will start seeing the picture come into focus.

In the meantime, you should check the draft out. It gives us a great idea about what player might be a great fit for each team.
