As the NFL world exhales after the Chiefs' Super Bowl Championship, the offseason is already in full motion. The NFL Combine begins next week, which marks a major point in the draft process. Teams will get an up-close look at players, get to meet with them, and even take a closer look at their medicals. All of these factors are key in the draft process for a player.

For this week's mock draft, we will be using the Pro Football Talk's Mock Draft Simulator. We will routinely rotate simulators to vary results for our weekly mock drafts.

A reminder that mock drafts are NOT about getting your team the best prospects each time. These mock drafts are meant to be thought exercises into what might happen. Just cause Rome Odunze fell to 32 in a simulation doesn't mean it's realistic.

Remember to bookmark our 2024 Arrowhead Addict Draft Big Board to follow our top-ranked prospects. Now on with this week's mock draft:

Round 1, Pick 32: Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU

At 6'4", 330 lbs., Suamataia is a prototype build for a tackle. He's played over 1,300 snaps in college at tackle (both right and left). Still just 21 years old (always a question for BYU prospects), he's entering his athletic prime as an experienced college blocker with plenty of traits. His long arms and nimble movement skills will have teams excited for his upside while his run blocking provides a nice floor.

Kingsley would come into Kansas City to compete at left tackle with Wanya Morris. The Chiefs could feel good about the floor of that position between the two and makes it cost effective. With Andy Reid there will always be some BYU connections, however Suamataia is a classic Chiefs tackle regardless. The Chiefs continually hold firm on measurables for tackles, they will not take a tackle who is not long and athletic, Suamataia is both.
