I agree. I think we are more likely to move around in rounds 2-3.

Strongly agree, it feels like there's a lot of R2-3 types and it's a bit of a crap shoot as to who makes it. You just want to get as many shots in that R2-4 bracket as you can in my opinion

Nolan Smith's combine presser. Man, I know everyone's probably right and he's too small, but dang I like this guy.

He's great for a 3-4 rushbacker.

More I watch Keondre Coburn the more I like him. Probably not much interest from the Chiefs though.

For sure. That level of athlete, i think pretty much any team could find a way to use him productively.

Calijah Kancey blew everyone away at the NFL Combine, now we're looking at an NFL mock draft for possible fits that could maximize the Pitt defensive lineman.

Every year at the NFL Combine, we see players significantly raise their stock for the NFL Draft with the way they wow with their athletic testing. And even though we knew Pitt Panthers defensive lineman Calijah Kancey was a beast, what he did on Thursday at the Combine turned heads everywhere.

The Pittsburgh standout with 14.5 sacks and 27.5 tackles for loss over the past two seasons topped every defensive tackle in the 40-yard dash, the only test that he ran. But it was how he did that which had people buzzing.

Kancey ran the 40 in 4.67 seconds, the fastest time by a defensive tackle at the NFL Combine since 2003. Moreover, he started drawing comparisons to another Pitt defensive tackle, some guy named Aaron Donald, for his explosiveness.

Here are 3 fits for Kancey in the upcoming draft:

NFL mock draft: Calijah Kancey fit No. 2 – Kansas City Chiefs

Yes, the Kansas City Chiefs already have one superstar defensive tackle on the roster in Chris Jones. He had an argument for Defensive Player of the Year in his own right this past season and has been a dominant force for several years since he was drafted out of Mississippi State.

It's the depth around him that will be a question for 2023, though. Both Khalen Saunders and Derrick Nnadi are set to hit free agency, as is defensive end Carlos Dunlap. They could bring some of those guys back, but it also stands to reason that the Chiefs would also like to get younger at the position and find a potential high-upside player to replenish the depth like Kancey.

While I'm high on the potential of Kancey and even more so with the explosiveness shown in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine, his size does mean that he's going to need a defensive coordinator who is creative in figuring out how to maximize his athleticism and arsenal of pass-rushing moves.

Steve Spagnuolo is a fantastic option to do that with the way he likes to mix up looks and move guys around in the front seven (and really all over the defense). Kancey could potentially thrive under that type of coaching and he would make a lot of sense if he was there with the 31st overall pick.

Yeah I had him in a much earlier thread on guys I liked. He might be seen as a DE/DT tweener and not long or quick enough for the edge and not stout enough for the interior. But if he's around in the 4th or maybe even the end of the 3rd I would not hate that pick at all. For a guy that size the explosiveness is pretty impressive, and the ceiling seems very high.

One thing you COULD do with Kancey is play him at DE on early downs and short yardage,and then move him inside next to Jones on passing downs.

It's not the worst idea in the world.

Thats my thought with him. I think youd use him like Mike Danna is used, except hes more gifted than Danna.
