It's no secret that the Kansas City Chiefs need wide receiver help. Injuries, off-the-field issues, and the lack of investment in quality players at the position have turned the Chiefs offense into a lesser version of itself. Chiefs General manager Brett Veach has expressed his desire to reload the offense with top-flight receivers and that is exactly what this mock draft intends to do.

Let this mock draft serve as a wide receiver guide. Which WRs are the most likely to be available in each round? Who is the best fit for the Chiefs at each stage? Who represents the best value as the draft plays out?

With that out of the way, let's get started with our first pick in the 2024 NFL Draft: Adonai Mitchell

1st Round Pick: Adonai Mitchell

Calling this a chalk pick would be putting it lightly. Texas WR Adonai Mitchell has all of the tools to succeed at the next level. His measurables are off the charts. He's got above-average size (6'2"), speed (4.34 second 40-time), and agility (1.48-second 10-yard split) for the position. Not only that, but his route-running ability is next level. If he's put on the weak side of the play (X position), one on one, against some poor 5'11" defensive back, Mitchell will look like the best wide receiver in football.

There are a few concerns, however, as his work ethic, effectiveness against zone coverage, and route timing have been called into question. He can be seen on film "taking plays off", not being a physical blocker, and expressing his displeasure at not receiving the ball. His production at Texas is also a bit concerning, as he only has one real year of production (2023), and that production wasn't as high as some of the other players on this mock draft (845 receiving yards).

That makes Adonai Mitchell your typical boom-or-bust prospect. His undeniable potential means he could become a top 5 wide receiver in the league, and his floor could be as low as N'Keal Harry. If he falls to Kansas City in the draft, Brett Veach cannot hesitate to pull the trigger on this potentially generational talent.
