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
Pro Football Network

Draft slot: 29

The picks
1.31 | TRADE with Jacksonville for 2.40 and 2.75. (Another trade happened at 96 but I fotget the exact details on it now)
2.40Drake Jackson, DE, USC. Jackson is a versatile edge defender who can play effectively anywhere from 260-275 pounds. He's explosive and quick and diverse, and he would pump much-needed youth and pass rush ability into the Chiefs DE unit.

2.61 | Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada. At least on this site, this pick is a solid spot to try to address WR. I switch it up and try to shamelessly make kccrow happy by taking someone he turned me on to. Has size, speed, can stack DBs down the field, and has had success working in the slot or on the outside.

3.75 | Arnold Ebiketie, DE, Penn State. I double-down on DE in this mock, and land a super athletic DE from a program that has been churning out athletic freaks. With Ebiketie and Jackson, my DE room is now younger and dynamic and has a pair of potentially studly bookends.

4.99 | Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming. If you're still pining about Logan Wilson, you'll like this pick. Muma's profile is very similar to Wilson's - he projects as a 3-down LB who fills downhill well. Use him as a SAM. Use him as a WILL. Hell, you can probably use him in the middle if you want.

4.131 | Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa. Smith's stock is starting to rise and he hasn't officially declared, but if he has, this would be an awesome set up. Smith is large and athletic enough to be a quality swing tackle and good starter at RT with some development time.

5.157 | Tariq Castro-Fields, CB, Penn State. Castro-Fields is a good-enough athlete with really long arms - would be a nice outside corner fit for the Chiefs and, with his length, would be a nice asset to deal with 9 routes to big receivers.

7.232 | Bubba Bolden, S, Miami. I think his ranking is way, way off on this site. But if he's there in real life, I would rush to podium and add a nice SS/third safety prospect. Would fit nicely in the role Sorenson has been filling.

7.249 | Peyton Hendershot, TE, Indiana. This seems like a safe spot to roll the dice on a really talented player with some off-field questions, if you get through interviews and assume he's solid. Could be an absolute steal if he keeps his nose clean.

KC needs to get good CB talent somewhere in the first 3 rounds due to Chase having an historic day against Ward

I don't think it's two 3's. I think it just adds a 3 in a third year if both happen in the same offseason.

Actually, just having read the text of the rule, if BOTH Poles and Bienemy are hired, the Chiefs would receive third round comp picks in each of the next 3 drafts:

(i) The employer-club of a minority employee who has been hired by another club as its Head Coach or Primary Football Executive (General Manager) shall receive Draft choice compensation in the form of a compensatory Draft pick in the third round in each of the next two Drafts for an employee hired as either a Head Coach or Primary Football Executive, or for the next three Drafts if it has two employees hired for both positions. The reference to the hiring of employees into “both positions” could be by the same club or different clubs. The following will apply to the Draft choice compensation:
a. Any compensatory

Using the Mock Draft Machine at TheDraftNetwork:

1. WR Chris Olave, Ohio State -- good X-receiver fit with outstanding route-running abilities
2. DE Kingsley Enagbare, South Carolina -- bursty, bendy passrusher with upside
3. CB Alontae Taylor, Tennessee -- perfect schematic fit with Spags
4. CB Josh Jobe, Alabama -- got to body up the DB room
5. RB Pierre Strong Jr., South Dakota State -- more explosive than what we've currently
got
6. S Nick Grant, Virginia
7. DE Dominique Robinson, Miami (OH)
7.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking. You don't get two sets of 3rd round picks for 2 years, you get 1 set of 3rd round picks for 3 years if both are hired in the same year.

The best case for us is one of either EB or Poles gets hired this year and then the other next year or the year after. Just keep those 3rds coming. :-)

Hmmmm. So really what we should be rooting for is for 1 of them to get hired this year and 1 next year so we can maximize with 4 total third round picks?

Today's Pro Football Network sim

Traded HOU #29 for #37 and #68
Traded NYJ #61 for #69 and #114

2-37: WR David Bell, Purdue
3-68: DT Phidarian Mathis, Alabama
3-69: S Jalen Pitre, Baylor
3-93: DE Isaiah Thomas, Oklahoma
4-114: RB Jerome Ford, Cincinnati
4-131: OT Braxton Jones, Southern Utah
7-232: TE Greg Dulcich, UCLA
7-249: WR Bo Melton, Rutgers

Definitely would be pretty excited about a draft like that.

I have mixed feelings about Bell. He produces but he doesn't look overly quick and especially not a guy that's going to run much faster than 4.5 and I think he's smaller than his listed size. I could see him being there.

Mathis has been on my radar but feel like he won't be there at the end of 2 (much less beginning of 3). He'd be a perfect piece next to Jones.

I really like Pitre as a Mathieu replacement.

Thomas has a prototype size and has been pretty productive. That arrest for failing to appear for petty larceny this past season might have teams doubting his character some though, so he could be there late 3rd. I do have my doubts he's there that late though.

Braxton Jones is a definite sleeper developmental tackle. Have had eyes on him.

I think Dulcich is a guy that's going much higher, probably the mid-5th but he was there. We'll see.

Bo Melton is my slot sleeper. The guys is very underrated IMO.

I'm not very good at these, but here's my first crack. I took trade backs in the first few rounds and essentially traded back + traded late round picks to consolidate more picks in the top 150 picks of the draft. 6 picks in the top 150, but non after...plus I picked up a 2023 3rd from Tennessee.

32) David Bell - WR, Purdue: I feel this is a tad early for Bell, but I really like him as a compliment to Hill and Kelce. He doesn't have the athleticism as the other guys in the first round, but he's a savvy receiver who will get open in the league.

64) Devonte Wyatt - DT, Georgia: I like his size and pass rushing ability lining up next to Jones

100) Verone McKinley - S, Oregon: I don't know if he will be here on draft day. He seems like a good guy in coverage, who can also come up and play the run well.

131) Jaylon Armour-Davis - CB, Bama: a big cb who I think also has the technique to stay with receivers in the NFL

133) Obina Eze - OT, TCU: a large man at 6'8 345, but also has a basketball background...so more mobile and agile than you'd think for a guy his size. I like him as a developmental pick who could eventually be our starting RT

141) Ali Gaye - Edge, LSU: This is just betting on potential, has all the physical tools you want and has a high motor, but is inconsistent or raw in his approach.

Works for me as I think that's what's gonna happen anyways.

Dorsey and EB combo seems to fit NYC well. Dorsey is an asshole, but he can draft and the Giants have 2 top 10 picks.

Be awesome if EB would trade for Frank Clark to solidify that d-line over there:-)

So am I understanding this correctly?

If Poles and EB both get hired elsewhere (different teams), KC would have two extra 3rd's this year and next year.

so effectively, we'd have a #1, #2, and THREE #3's this year and next?

No, it would be a 3rd round pick in each of the next three drafts. So only one 3rd round draft per year.

Interesting to note that the Ravens aren't going to get that second 3rd round draft pick this season because Culley didn't make it two full seasons with the Texans.

So if the Vikings hire Catherine Raiche from Philly to be their GM does Philly get anything back? Being a woman isn't a minority, but she was born in Canada.
