Round 3, Pick 75: Ben Sinnott, TE, Kansas State

In order to get Ben Sinnott the Chiefs use their own third-round pick from 2025 (they still have the Titans pick) combined with pick 95 to get in range.

Sinnott has been building hype since the combine where he had a great showing. There's even potential for him to be the second tight end taken overall. It's highly unlikely he will be available with the 95th pick, so the Chiefs get their guy.

Sinnott is a highly athletic, diverse piece for an offense. He's lined up all over the field including at fullback. He's a maniac with the ball in his hands and is an above-average blocker as well. He's not going to be mistaken for Travis Kelce when it comes to route running, but the rest of the tools are there.

Why this player?

The Chiefs have met with several tight ends this draft cycle, and Travis Kelce is clearly in the twilight of his career. The Chiefs need to begin preparing for life after Kelce, and while there is no replacing him, it would be much better if he could help prepare his replacement.

Sinnott gets a year to develop behind two great leaders in the tight end room while also being a major upgrade over Blake Bell. Even if Kelce isn't retiring in 2024, Noah Gray is set to be a free agent after this season as well. Sinnott helps with 13 personnel, adds another pass catcher to the offense, and helps answer long-term questions at the position
