We are looking around the internet to see who is going to the Kansas City Chiefs in recent NFL mock draft craziness.
Everybody knows that the 2016 NFL Draft is on April 28 in Chicago. It is a date that has been marked on calendars for months, with the only other excitement being the NFL free agency frenzy. However, the last month has given us tons of time to wonder about who the next Chiefs are going to be.
Kansas City is drafting 28th-overall in the first round, a place it has never been before. It goes to show just how close the Chiefs are to making their Super Bowl dreams a reality. Kansas City is currently without a third-round pick, although that penalty is being appealed. The Chiefs do have a pair of fifth-round picks, though, which takes a little sting out of the tampering sanction.
All that said, let’s take a look at who the experts believe general manager John Dorsey could be taking with two weeks to go. You might notice a theme.
USA Today (Nate Davis) – William Jackson III, CB, Houston
"Lots of good receivers in the AFC West, so the Chiefs would be wise to reload at corner after letting Sean Smith go to the division rival Raiders."
CBS Sports (Will Brinson) – Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson
"The Chiefs dive back into the cornerback pool this year after hitting a home run with Marcus Peters last season and make an already talented secondary even more dangerous with the addition of the Clemson star."
SB Nation (Dan Kadar) – Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State
"After losing Sean Smith to division rival Oakland, cornerback is a need for the Chiefs. Although defensive line is, too, they could wait on the position thanks to its strength in this year’s draft. Apple is a bigger cornerback who is a suitable replacement for Smith as long as he gets more consistent."
CBS Sports (Pete Prisco) – Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson
"They lost Sean Smith to the Raiders, so they need a replacement. He would team with Marcus Peters to give them a young, talented combination."
The Big Lead (Jason McIntyre) – Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia
"Rapidly-rising DB won’t be a sleeper much longer. Tore his ACL in October and has been off the national radar. Never put too much stock in visits, but at least two teams late in the 1st round have had him in, both with the idea that he’d be there in the 2nd round. He won’t be."
