Even though Washington wide receiver Ja'Lynn Polk was mocked in the first round to the Chiefs in Peter Schrager's latest mock draft, he still isn't being talked about as much as he should be. Polk has the potential to be the steal of the 2024 NFL draft. His exceptional hand strength, his ability to track deep passes downfield, and his ability to readjust to catch off-balance contested catches make him an incredibly reliable target for any quarterback lucky enough to get him in their WR room.

Polk's ceiling isn't as high as most of the prospects in this draft, but he can absolutely contribute to the Kansas City wide receiver room. He will probably never become a top-5 wide receiver in the league, however, reliably hitting 1,000-yard receiving seasons is not out of the question.

Polk is, by far, the most underrated prospect in this year's draft class. If he falls to the Chiefs at 64, he will be an immediate contributor and help secure the first ever three-peat. For more in-depth analysis, check out my article on him here.
