WR:

Rashod Bateman, Minnesota
Kadarius Toney, Florida
Terrace Marshall, LSU
Rondale Moore, Purdue

TE:

Pat Freiermuth, Penn St.

OL:

Wyatt Davis, G, Ohio St.
Creed Humphrey, C, Oklahoma
Alijah Vera-Tucker, T/G, USC
Liam Eichenberg, T, Notre Dame
Jalen Mayfield, T, Michigan
Alex Leatherwood, T/G, Alabama

DE:

Azeez Ojulari, Georgia
Jaelan Phillips, Miami
Patrick Jones, Pittsburgh
Jayson Oweh, Penn St.

LB:

Nick Bolton, Missouri
Zaven Collins, Tulsa


Bateman and Davis are the least likely to make it there, but for different reasons (depth at WR, and positional value at G) I still think it’s somewhat possible one of them can fall.

I think we (this board) value picking another linebacker higher up much more than the Chiefs do/will.

If I remember correctly, Hitchens contract pretty much has no out for the next 2 years until it ends, hopefully Gay is on the field for 95% of snaps next year so unless the Chiefs are going to play a ton of base there won't be many snaps for another LB?

I personally think they might target a LB in the 3rd/4th/5th instead.

I don’t expect them to take a LB in the 1st either, but it’s still possible considering it’s still one of our biggest needs for the future.

Collins or Bolton just might be BPA.

The Chiefs, under Reid, have a history of drafting for future departures the following year. Remember, even CEH wasn’t supposed to be the starter this year. Replacing Hitchens is a lot on the mental side, so it’s possible that they could want to get ahead of it and draft their guy a year early. That way when Hitchens is gone, you have 2 good young LB’s. You could also play Gay and the rookie a lot more in subs so we don’t have to see Niemann on the field anymore and avoid Hitchens in coverage as much as possible.

Again, I agree that it’s unlikely, but it’s absolutely possible.

If Bolton is there, I'd take him. He's a stud.

I really like Humphrey and Davis the more I've read about them.

Creed Humphrey looks like an Andy Reid fantasy. Hes really big and very fast for his size. Kinda reminds me of Mitch Morse without the injury concern.

Not sure wed take him so early but I wouldnt be mad at it

As I said before, the Chiefs needs are different because of the Mahomes investment to amplify his success and keeping him upright.

Thus,OL, and RB are needs higher on the list because of the Chiefs generational QB who can utilize these assets in comparison to a "good" QB where it would be wasted.

I would include Chris Olave and Terrance Marshall, Jr. in the WR group.

Marshall is really interesting... he's a 6'3" receiver, but LSU has used him outside AND in the slot, and he separates really well for a guy that size.

Olave is a separation machine (very Terry McLaurin) but is pretty skinny without much room for adding muscle mass.

I don't see any way they invest another Rd 1 pick in a RB this soon after Clyde. Especialy Najee Harris, who is a stiff, upright, traditional RB.

I really like Olave and Marshall too, but I feel like if we go WR in round 1 it will be because one of those other guys fell into our lap. Otherwise, I think there will be an EDGE, IOL, or LB available that we’d take over those 2.

I’d be good with either of those 2 though. Even better if we could get them after trading down a few spots.

Yeah. All comes down to grade.

If you have Marshall and Olave as top 30 players and an IOL as a top 50 player, hard to see them sticking at 32 and still taking the IOL.

Agreed. I’d probably have both of those guys in that 30-40 range. Marshall is a little higher because of his size, which I think would compliment Hill and Hardman perfectly. Olave is a great fit too though.

Toney is climbing up my board every time I watch more of him. He is really intriguing with his RAC ability. He’s like the Kamara of WR’s the way he glides around the field and just bounces off tackles so uniquely.

Toney probably fits the system the best. Hes 5/11-6 and super twitched up. Hes also thick and just explosive. I think hell be able to handle press man coverage and would be really dangerous doing a lot of the stuff Watkins does.

Hes a little injury prone, though, it seems.

Been on the Chris Olave wagon for awhile now. He needs to be discussed more.

Theres a TON of OL depth in this draft, no need to take one in round 1.

LDT and Niang possibly returning, Im sure Chiefs will have more clarification closer to draft time. The pandemic could get worse, NFL might have players opting out earlier this offseason if given the opportunity. This draft is going to be very unpredictable.
