WR:

Troy Franklin, Oregon
Adonai Mitchell, Texas
Xavier Worthy, Texas
Ladd McConkey, Georgia

OT:

Tyler Guyton, Oklahoma
Kingsley Suamataia, BYU
Jordan Morgan, Arizona

CB:

Kool-Aid McKinstry, Alabama

Typically, we draft a guy from this list every year that I've been doing it.

Anybody you guys feel should/shouldn't be on there?

If he runs in the 4.4s, he'll be on the list permanently. I just have a hard time seeing the Chiefs draft a 4.5 contested catch guy.
Youíre far ahead of me on the draft as I have barely started looking deeper into the WRs.

Mitchell oozes upside.

Routes, body control, hands.


This also reminds me of the Paris Campbell vs Terry McLaurin draft. All the draft talking heads focused on the slot volume guy, not the boundary WR who was better.

I like Mitchell, but again, he just doesn't fit the profile of WR that the Chiefs have gone after.

Staylor, it would be cool to do one of these for the 2nd round as well, as it widens the conversation to other position groups (like OG). It could also get spicy if we tag/trade Sneed and end up with another 2nd rounder to play with.

Thought about it the last couple of years, but didn't do it. Will do it this year though.

I guess a guy like Tee Higgins would not be our type and would not be a priority to spend big $$$ on.

But if you could draft him, we could use him.


Mitchell would be an absolute no for a Josh Allen at QB.

But we have Mahomes who throws to Kelce all the time when guys are near but Kelce has won on leverage.

Mahomes ball placement puts him in play for me.

Pat does it with Kelce, hasn't really done it with anyone else.

Get guys who separate.

We generally haven't gone for contested catch guys, we've gone for separators. But Terrell Owens was great in Reids system so it could work.

Yea, if the Chiefs throw a curveball and take Mitchell, I will be more than happy with the pick.

I just don't see it actually happening.

I don’t see Mecole, Skyy, or even Rice as separators.

Maybe they hoped they would be.

At least Rice is good.

Let’s try to do good again.

Mecole has been one of the higher separation generators IIRC
[Reply]
staylor26 01:24 PM 02-20-2024
Rice was always a fit because of his burst and YAC ability.

That's exactly why I think they'll still like Coleman.

I will say this, for a team that struggled in the red zone (even in the playoffs/SB), Mitchell would be a huge boost there. He's a TD machine.

Huh?

He has elite speed but his lack of route running means he isnít an elite separator.

If Mecole actually had that ability he would be getting way more $$$ than vet min offers or 5 million from a desperate franchise.

But...how?

This team just doesn't throw the normal back shoulder stuff like some teams.

He is still immature and needs to add weight but his skill set compares favorably to Tee Higgins.

He would immediately help even as a decoy 1 or vertical 2 in our offense.

Add in a deep threat like Hollywood and good luck.
