The case for selecting T.J. Hockenson if he falls
Look, tight ends in the first round can be a dangerous game to play, but this is different. For months, T.J. Hockenson has remained on top of draft boards made by draft experts. As a guy who is a good in-line blocker, as well as outside receiver, he has drawn comparisons to Rob Gronkowski. He is, however, a tight end.
Fit with the Chiefs
In lieu of the Tyreek Hill investigation, in which we still know little-to-nothing, it could be wise for the Chiefs to add another piece for the future. T.J. Hockenson would be very complimentary to Travis Kelce‘s style of play and would give Andy Reid a whole new way of creating mismatches on offense. While it seems like a bit of a longshot, Hockenson would be a great pick for Kansas City at 29.
How T.J. Hockenson could fall to pick 29
If general managers decided that they liked Noah Fant’s athleticism and upside more than Hockenson’s, I think it would be very likely that he could slide. Another thing that would aid a slide for him is if there was a run on wide receivers earlier than anticipated.
