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.

Having Thomas and Williams allows you to bring Ojabo along slowly. Plus it gives you amazing depth in 2023.

KCSN did a mock draft on their YouTube page.

29. Treylon Burks, WR
29. David Ojabo, DE
50. Travis Jones, DT
62. Josh Paschal, DE
94. Nick Cross, S
103. Zyon McCollum, CB
121. Max Mitchell, OT
135. Justyn Ross, WR
7th - Jermaine Waller, CB
7th - Chase Allen, TE
7th - Matt Ariza, P

Really the only pick that I would change is Paschal because Sam Williams was on the board but I can see why they did it. Ross is trash though. I don’t know who was on the board.

The PFN mock simulator seems insanely generous.

29. Drake Lonson - WR
30. David Ojabo -DE
62. Jalen Pitre - S/CB
64.Phidarian Mathis - DT
75. Nik Bonitto - DE
94. Romeo Doubs -WR
103.Daniel Faalele - OT - don't really rate him but at this point he seemed worth the shot
142. Alontae Taylor -CB
175.Zamir White - RB
211.Jalen Wydermyr -TE
212. Marcus Jones - CB
218. D'Marco Jackson - LB
233.Tycen Anderson - S
243. Noah Ellis - DT
251. Josh Johnson - WR

This was after a trade down that we know Veach wouldn't do, and it's probably a little light across the DL for most people's liking.

Here's my problem with PFN - Drake London falls to 29 about half the time.

There's no way he makes it to 29. On most boards, he's the top WR available. He's going to go top 15.

I traded down in this draft a couple of times when it wasn't too far down from the original draft spot. Ngl, I would be insanely excited if we could pull this off. Austin Allen is going to be a baller. I "reached" for Ty Chandler but he's prob my fav non 1st rd grade player for some reason.

There's so many DL prospects to choose from at 50 and 62, I find myself always using one of the 1st rounders on a WR.

In your simulations, are you tempted to grab Dean or Cine, if they are available, and grab the WR with pick 50?

I think the need at safety is a lot less now so I tend to waffle on that one.

Dean is a no for me.

Ugh.

Trying to listen to the KCSN Podcast/mock and gave up after five minutes.

"Well if Ridder is gone the Seahawks wouldn't really need to stay in the top 10 so the Chiefs could be looking to trade up to 10 and select Jermaine Johnson...."

Then more yammering about their inevitable trade up of 29 and 30 to get into the low teens.

Maybe they got less stupid but GOD I hope they don't package those 1sts. That will just be such a bad sign.
