The Kansas City Chiefs are going for their third straight Super Bowl, a feat that has never been done before in the NFL. Chiefs general manager Brett Veach has a long track record of being aggressive in the draft. If he were to be aggressive in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, what teams would be the most likely targets?

For a potential trade up, there are several factors to consider. The first is simple: who are you trading up for? It's very common for teams to jump a few picks for a player they love. However, it's pretty rare to see a team make a large jump for anything but quarterback. The value just isn't there for a team to trade numerous day 1 and 2 picks for any other position. Sorry, Marvin Harrison Jr. on the Chiefs probably isn't happening.

Another factor to consider is the trade partner. There are lots of teams sick and tired of the Chiefs that don't want to help them get another blue-chip talent. AFC contenders and division rivals likely aren't picking up the phone for the Chiefs.

Lastly, what is the goal of the trade up? Is there a specific team that is likely to take a prospect before the Chiefs' pick?
