The Kansas City Chiefs are getting prepared for a very busy offseason. We can pretty much all agree that is a good thing.

The Denver Broncos just traded for superstar quarterback Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks, which makes the Broncos one of the more feared teams not just in the AFC but in all of football. For the last couple of years, the thing that has held the Broncos back was the lack of a decent quarterback.

Next, the Los Angeles Chargers traded for a superstar pass rusher Khalil Mack from the Chicago Bears. Furthermore, they re-signed Mike Williams. So they aren’t losing anybody they don’t want to, and they are already one of the biggest competitors for the Chiefs. It doesn’t appear as they plan on just stopping there either. The Los Angeles Chargers are heading into the off-season with plenty of cap space to give their team a boost in whatever way they see fit.

Let’s look at a seven-round mock draft for the Chiefs that gives them serious defensive help.

The only team in the AFC West that doesn’t seem to be making early transactions to start the offseason is the Las Vegas Raiders. Which, it’s still unclear if they will or not, I suppose we’ll find out at a later date, but for now, we are under the assumption that they will be looking to make some moves.

That leaves the Chiefs. Not exactly knowing what the future holds for guys like Frank Clark, Chavarius Ward, and Tyrann Mathieu, there are a lot of uncertainties. However, those uncertainties don’t have to be taken negatively. All those uncertainties just mean that they have to attack the draft with a chip on the shoulder and draft position of need.

So, with that being said, let’s get into the mock draft that I have assembled.
