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.

Drake Jackson

George Pickens

Calvin Austin III

Pierre Strong Jr.
RB South Dakota State-Tired of watching RB's that can't get the edge? Me too.

KC
121.
Troy Andersen
LB Montana State-Freak athlete at 245, as in like Willie Gay level speed and size. Finishes an elite LB corps. If the key to defense has now become inside out rather than edges in, we're in stellar shape as the DT, LB, and S positions are stocked with elite talent.

KC
135.
Zyon McCollum
CB Sam Houston State-Freaky speed and size combination has to have Spags drooling. Here's your boundary corner for the next several years.

I love this.

I have to wonder if we can rape one of these teams desperate for a QB at the end of the 1st rd.

Would love to trade down with one of our 1sr rd picks and get another future 1st or 2nd. Would be amazing

O.City got me thinking. Would you rather:

Move up to the mid to late teens for Jermaine Johnson (assuming he’s there) for 29, 50 and a 6th?

Or

Use a 3rd+4th to move up to the early 20’s to get a Mafe or Karlaftis

We don’t have a 6th.

(Kind of like what separates Vita Vea).

Winfrey and Hall are both odd-front DEs who can be played inside or outside in an even front. If they're inside, they're playing an undertackle spot, not being asked to take on 2 guys each down.
I just havenít seen much violence or aggression out of Jones, especially considering the numbers he put up. His athletic ability and testing didnít match his senior bowl practices.

I think we might win the next 4 SB's.

KC
29.
Jermaine Johnson
EDGE Florida State-sky's the limit here, excellent athlete, prototypical size

KC

KC

Alec Pierce
WR Cincinnati-big, fast, 'X' your future #1.

KC
62.
Cameron Thomas
EDGE San Diego State-doublin' down. Thomas is prototypical size and productive. Unlikely to bust. Edge is solved for the near future.

KC
94.
Calvin Austin III
WR Memphis-Let's replace Reek with the younger version. Fastest player in football.

KC
103.
Pierre Strong Jr.
RB South Dakota State-more hot, nasty speed. This kid will make them pay if they stay with the 2 high safety shit.

KC
121.
Nick Cross
S Maryland-Can you imagine if Dirty Dan was one of the fastest guys on the field? Here ya go. Spags 3 safety sets will now be deadly.

KC
135.
Zyon McCollum
CB Sam Houston State-6'4, 200 lbs. and a 4.3? Spags' secondary just got a major injection of size and speed. McCollum has all the tools.

At any rate, Watson, Pierce, or Pickens-2 of the 3 seem to always be there at #50, and this is where I think we should take a WR.
