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.

No shot at Breece Hall. He's a mid-2nd guy at worst.

I really hope we can get Karlaftis. Even if it involves a trade-up (29/our 2nd and a 4th). Still leaves us with 30 to get Pickens and 50 to draft some DB help, though this is the spot I'd take Ojabo at if he makes it there.

Karlaftis + Ojabo would have this defensive line looking fearsome by next season along with a AJ Green clone in Pickens :-)

First post trade draft

I noticed Karlfafis falling and traded 29 + 62 to the Eagles for #16

16) George Karlaftis; edge - Purdue
30) Travis Jones; DT - UCONN
50) George Pickens; WR - Georgia
94) Kellen Diesch; T - Arizona
103) Jojo Domann; OLB/S - Nebraska
121) Zion McCollum; CB - Sam Houston State
135) Noah Elliss; DT - Idaho

With this draft I hope we'd use some of the money freed up by trading Hill to get a CB out of free agency.

KC
30.
Lewis Cine
S Georgia-freak athlete, plus plus player and with Reid and Thornhill we're 3 deep in excellent safeties for Spags 3 S looks. You're also in good shape moving forward and can let Thornhill walk even if he balls out this year.

KC
50.
Christian Watson
WR North Dakota State-THE athletic freak of the draft. This is your future WR1.

KC
62.
Sam Williams
EDGE Mississippi-he grabbed a boobie, so he falls to the 2nd. Good for us! Keep your hands to yourself, Sammy. Just grab QB's.

Matt Waletzko
OT North Dakota-Great big athletic OT to finish off our young studly offensive line.

KC
103.
Pierre Strong Jr.
RB South Dakota State-anytime I tried to wait longer, he's gone. So fuck it. Gimme this future star here.

KC
121.
Jeffrey Gunter
EDGE Coastal Carolina-this kid has prototype size, his RAS scores are through the roof. This kid IS Maxx Crosby. I'll take that at around the same spot Crosby went.

KC
135.
Alontae Taylor
CB Tennessee-long, tall drink of water for Spags and his CB thirst.

With this draft, I have filled all gaping holes on the roster as well as put us in good shape for the future. You're welcome.

I will post this here, since the lounge is an emotional train wreck. I actually think that the chiefs couldn't have fielded a full 51 man roster of NFL caliber players without a tyreek extension or trade.

Having 12 rookie contracts on the books for the next four years will help mitigate the impact of the mature quarterback contract. Further, we will have 11? picks next year to further bolster the cost controlled portion of the roster.

This is going to be our new reality. Making tough calls on who stays and who goes to maximize the cost controlled part of the roster.

Thoughts?

The #Chiefs, I’m told, are highly intrigued by Skyy Moore, the Western Michigan standout who had a tremendous combine performance.
