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.

I just think that if Jameson Williams is in range you have to pull the trigger. E would be amazing in this offense

Agreed.

Iíd love to get one of him or Ojabo.

With all of these picks, we can afford 1 really big swing.

Post-trade reaction.

1.18 (Trade 29 and 94 to get in this position. Might take a 3rd in 2023 thrown in to make it happen). Jermaine Johnson, DE, Florida State
1.30 David Ojabo, DE, Michigan. I roll the fucking dice. Chance to add premium bookends for the next 4.5 years.
2.50 Travis Jones, DT, UConn. I triple-down on the DL and make it easier to say goodbye to Chris Jones in 2023. Keep those nasty boys on the outside clean for me, would you Travis?
2.62 Calvin Austin III, WR, Memphis. I ran a bunch of mocks and he was just never there at 103 (or 94, even). So it's either take him here and add another stick of explosive dynamite to the offense, or take a guy like Tolbert. I go for the more rare athlete and cross my fingers.
3.103 Zyon McCollum, CB, Sammie State. Great athletic profile at this spot
4.121 Nick Cross, S, Maryland. Hoping this is enough to get the secondary shored up, probably pair these two with a veteran CB signing in FA. And adding Kyzir White to beef up my nickel and dime packages

PARDON ME. I NEED A MOMENT TO DREAM ABOUT A NICKEL AND DIME SET THAT FEATURES THE NASTY, GREASY SPEED OF WILLIE GAY AND KYZIR WHITE. HNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGH.

Back to it now.

4.135 Speaking of nasty speed, let's add a touch more to the offense. Pierre Strong, RB, NDSU, come on down.

Other FA key in this scenario would be adding a good starting WR (Jarvis Landry sure makes sense now) who, along with Kelce and Juju, can complement the Chiefs speed guys (Austin and Hardman).

I think i like it.

Mahomes, Henne
Clyde, Strong, Gore
Landry, Smith-Schuster, Hardman, Austin, Fountain or other FA signing
Kelce, Gray, Fortson

Brown, Christian
Thuney, Allegretti
Humphrey, Reiter
Smith, Wylie
Christian, Niang, Wylie

Johnson, Ingram (yeah, he's back!), (Ojabo - when ready)
T Jones, Nnadi
C Jones, Wharton
Clark, Danna, Ingram

Bolton, Gay, White, Niemann

Sneed, Fenton, VET FA, McCollum, Baker
Thornhill, Reid, Cross, Bush

Winchester, Butker, Thompson

And then 4-5 spots up for grabs. They're go swing at high-upside lotto tickets in round 7, IMO. Maybe one of those lands and is here.

Finding I can run the same basic concept, moving to 23 with Arizona.

1.23 Jermaine Johnson
1.30 Ojabo
2.50 Travis Jones
2.62 John Metchie
3.83 (traded 103 and 2023 3rd to Arizona for this) Tyler Austin III
4.121 Zyon McCollum
4.135 Nick Cross

I kind of feel like this is where the Chiefs' primary plan is.

Get some solid but not bank-breaking vets at DE, WR, CB, and LB. Double dip at DE in the draft, try to take advantage of the WR depth, too.

I think I like this run better than the last one.
