Got a mock? Pop it in this thread. Include a picture if you want. Explain your reasoning if you want. Talk about your crushes... if you want.

See a good "pro" mock? Link it up in here and I'll add it to the OP.

Duncan's latest mock

Site
The Draft Network This mock seems to be the most accurate site right now, so I go with this one. I don't pay for it, so no trades here. The plan is for this to be my last mock. I'm going to do it differently, though. I'm running 3 scenarios, and eschewing the 7th round picks, which I would use on a big swings on athleticism and potential. Lotto tickets. James Houston IV is one of them. Note: I used PFF to simulate the trade action, then manually backed up in the 2 "trade" drafts to make selections. Laborious, but gives you best of both worlds, IMO. I think PFF's trade tool is the best, but its board is whack.

Draft slot: 29

Scenario 1: The Chiefs sit pat with their picks and don't make any moves at all. Seems the least likely, but hey...
1.29 | George Karlaftis, DE, Purdue.
1.30 | Boye Mafe, DE, Minnesota.
2.50 | George Pickens, WR, Georgia.
2.62 | Travis Jones, DT, UConn.
3.94 | Zyon McCollum, CB, Sam Houston State.
3.103(Comp for Poles) | Troy Andersen, LB, Montana State.
4.121 | Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati.
4.135 | Velus Jones, Jr., Tennessee

Scenario 1 Debrief:
So, sitting and waiting to see what comes to me was pretty successful here. The Chiefs FLOOD the defensive line with reinforcements, including at least 1 ready-made starter and two guys who should - at minimum - be in 50/50 rotations at their spots by year end. The Chiefs still get a big outside WR with tantalizing potential. They add some crazy athletic small-school guys, and a mid-round corner who just fits in the system, and a dynamo return man who might be more at WR.

This looks pretty good. Though I have a hard time believing Karlaftis just falls to 29...

Scenario 2: The Chiefs get aggressive and trade up. But for what? In this case, let's go wide receiver. In this run, Kansas City trades picks 29, 62, and a 2023 3rd to Houston for pick 13 and a 2023 4th, because they ARE as obsessed with a WR as people expect and are aggressive to go get him when the board falls right. They then trade BACK from 30 to 35 with the Jets, also including pick 94 in order to get 69 back. Then, last but not least, KC gets aggressive one more time and moves 103 and 121 for 85 from New England, leaving the Chiefs with 6 picks in the first four rounds.
1.13 | Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama.
2.35 | Cam Thomas, DE, San Diego State.
2.50 | Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor.
3.69 | Zachary Carter, DT, Florida.
3.85 | Sam Williams, DE, Ole Miss.
4.135 | Jaylen Watson, CB, Washington State

Scenario 2 Debrief:
I'm not saying KC should do this or even that I think they will (more on that in a few minutes). I'm just saying, man, what will it look like if the Chiefs get aggressive a few times AND are doing the big move for a WR? In this scenario, KC obviously believes Williams is a game-changer at the NFL level and is taking a small 2022 hit to make 2023+ better. The defensive line still gets reinforced, but the reinforcements are all a shade worse than the sit-pat draft option. If you like Kingsley Enagbare or Josh PAscal more than Thomas, I get it and wouldn't quibble at one of those guys instead. Logan Hall, too. Pitre is such a screaming perfect fit for KC's D. Carter is a great physical talent you can dream about coaching up. Williams' utility is known and gives them a true RE option to pair against their higher-drafted bigger guy. Watson is a developmental corner.

I don't love it. I think Pitre makes the secondary a lot better and makes it easier to move on from Thornhill after 22. They have improved the defensive rotation, though one of the DEs would need to outperform expectations in Year 1 to get it to the same level as Scenario 1. In all, giving up the 2 extra selections in the top 4 rounds hurts the depth you can build, but I think it's more like what KC will do.

Scenario 3: Same movements as #2
1.13 | Jermaine Johnson II, DE, Florida State.
2.35 | Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State.
2.50 | Sam Williams, DE, Ole Miss.
3.69 | Bryan Cook, S, Cincinnati.
3.85 | Martin Emerson, CB, Miss. State.
4.135 | Braxton Jones, T, Southern Utah

Scenario 3 Debrief:
This is the type of situation where I see KC paying the price to move up... if Johnson falls this far, I'd be shocked if KC isn't aggressively moving up. With this run, I take a risky but high upside WR in Watson (but you could sub in Pickens or Jahan Dotson or Tolbert or Metchie or Skyy Moore or really any of those tier 2 guys here if you prefer). The secondary reinforcements aren't flashy but are good fits.

In this one, I think the plan has to become adding either another safety or corner in free agency before the season. Ideally, it's someone who can handle the slot and let Sneed thriver on the outside. The DL gets a major boost and some potential star power in Johnson and Williams, and the OL gets another T option and potential long-term starter to develop.

Having completed the exercise and looking at the scenariors, I like the first one the most. But it really does come down to how the board breaks.

I just don't see it being likely there isn't a S (Hill, Brisker) or CB (Elam, Booth) or DE (Williams, Thomas) or DT (Winfrey, Jones) that is a better fit for what KC needs.
I can’t see the Chiefs doubling down at DB in the 1st after investing their #1 FA priority there too.

I also don’t think Williams, Thomas, Winfrey, or Jones will be 1st rounders at the end of the day.

I’m trying to read the tea leaves a bit here, and while I like all those guys, I just don’t see it.

Yeah, I get that. I also just donít see them using a 1st on Mafe when he so clearly looks like a 2-pt stance guy.

Maybe they trade up a bit from 29 and then down from 30.

Love the first 3 picks.

I like Asamoah and White, but not a huge fan of taking those positions early.

Your only addition to the defensive line is a DE who tore his Achilles. Not great, Bob.

I sent 30, 62 and 2023 1st to the Washington Commanders for 11, 189 and a 2023 4th.

Later, I sent 113 and the 2023 6th from Miami to New Orleans for 120, 160 and a 2023 5th.

11 - CB Sauce Gardner
29 - WR Treylon Burks
50 - DT Devonte Wyatt
94 - EDGE Nik Bonitto
120 - CB Zyon McCollum
121 - S Nick Cross
135 - RB Pierre Strong Jr.
160 - S Markquese Bell
189 - EDGE Josh Paschal
233 - DT Eyioma Ewazurike
243 - LB Jeremiah Moon
251 - OT Bam Olaseni
259 - NT Noah Elliss
2024 4th WAS
2024 5th NO

I usually don't make any trades but once Sauce fell out of the top-10 I had to move. My only regret is I probably could've gotten a 2023 5th from WAS as well.

My favorite picks are Wyatt at 50 and Bonitto at 94 along with Bell at 160 and Paschal at 189.

I also like the nearly 700lbs of beef added to the trenches late on day-3 with Big Bam Olaseni (6'8" 330/88" wingspan) and Noah Elliss (6'4" 365).

Bam is really intriguing...very raw and inexperienced still. Sort of scary to think what he might become with two to three years of NFL OL coaching.

And Noah...man...if he could get DOWN TO around 340...he could be a problem. I really like this dude as a late day-3 or priority UDFA.





Overall, this is an obviously HIGHLY unlikely haul, especially with the way, the first few picks fell. Nonetheless, If this class were to actually happen I think most Chief fans would be pleased. ::-)
Correction on this. I sent 103 (not 113) and the MIA '23 6th to NOLA for 120, 160 and their '23 5th. Must have been thinking about WAS' picks.

First Mock draft ever. I never knew these simulators existed. Only did 4 rounds.

Loved this mock draft. I got my favorite pass rusher that is within reach (via trade) and 2 of my favorite WRs although I was going to snag Edge-Boye Mafe instead of Pierce at 50 until Minnesota plucked him at 49.

Also, I'm an idiot though really wanted Zyon McCollum either at 122 or 135. I decided to wait until 135 and Buffalo picked him at 130. I'm intrigued by Troy Anderson though and got him instead. He's raw with very high upside but has a 10 RAS and he'd hopefully guarantee Neiman wouldn't be back.

This is profootballnetwork.com's mock draft simulator.


13. (via trade 29/62/103 and next year's 2nd) Jermaine Johnson
EDGE Florida State


37. (trade back offer 37/80 from Texans) Christian Watson
WR North Dakota State

50. Alec Pierce
WR Cincinnati

80. (from Texans) Jalyn Armour-Davis
CB Alabama


94. Isaiah Thomas
EDGE Oklahoma

122. (via trade back 1 spot with colts and 259 for 122/179) Jeffrey Gunter
EDGE Coastal Carolina

135. Troy Andersen
LB Montana State

Thatís an absolute no from me, dawg. Fucking shitty run for KC.

If KC trades up that much with Karlaftis on the board and doesnít take him, Iíll be floored.

Still waiting on that answer if any good player was still at the same level after their Achilles rupture?

Iím genuinely curious bc I donít see anyone. And that worries me with Ojabo. I donít get taking him when so many other guys like Cam Thomas will be there
