Kansas City Chiefs Seven-Round Mock Draft

The Kansas City Chiefs address glaring needs on the offensive side of the ball in the latest seven-round mock draft.
Chiefs Mock Draft

The 2024 NFL Draft is less than two weeks away, which makes this one of the final Chiefs mock drafts of the offseason. After winning their second Super Bowl in as many seasons, Kansas City is trying to make history by winning three consecutive championships. With needs at some prominent positions, the Chiefs will need to make the most of each selection if they want to achieve that goal.

Note that this exercise was performed using the Pro Football Network Mock Draft Simulator. If the player was on the board when the Saints were on the clock, they were fair game. Also note that this Chiefs mock draft does not include trades.

Seven-Round Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft

First Round (32nd Overall) – Adonai Mitchell, WR

In the real NFL Draft, Kansas City will probably have to trade up if they want to land Adonai Mitchell. Fortuntely, the rules of this mock draft allow the Chiefs to take an athletic freak who should immeidately establish himself as one of the top options in this passing attack. Regardless of whether or not Rashee Rice suits up in 2024, Mitchell is an easy selection if he’s still on the board. Marquise Brown is only in town for one year, and Travis Kelce isn’t getting any younger. Kansas City needs to find their next group of playmakers, and Mitchell and Mahomes should terrify the league for years to come.

Second Round (64th Overall) – Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE

Kansas City doesn’t need Ja’Tavion Sanders right now, but they will in a year or two. Travis Kelce started to show signs of slowing down in the regular season, and nobody would blame him for wanting to retire early and spend his late 30’s hanging out with Taylor Swift. With no tackles or cornerbacks worthy of the 64th-overall pick, Kansas City looks toward the future with this mock draft selection. Seeing as tight ends usually take a year or two to adjust to NFL life, Sanders should hit his stride right around the time Kelce hangs up the cleats.

Third Round (95th Overall) – Blake Fisher, OT

Blake Fisher is an athletic tackle who should compete to start from Day 1. Whlie his technique leaves something to be desired, these are fixable issues and a good coaching staff should be able to get the most out of the Notre Dame product. The Chiefs should have him compete with a veteran like Mekhi Becton in the short-term before allowing him to be the unquestioned starter in 2025.

Fourth Round (131st Overall) – Cam Hart, CB

In the real NFL Draft, Kansas City will probably trade up to select a cornerback in the first three rounds. However, since trades aren’t allowed in this Chiefs mock draft, we’re at the mercy of the board, and Cam Hart is the first cornerback that isn’t a massive reach. This is a high-upside pick through and through, and Hart has the physical gifts required to be a lockdown corner. If he refines his instincts, then Kansas City will have found yet another starting-caliber cornerback in the fourth round.

Fifth Round (159th Overall) – Jaylen Wright, RB

Isiah Pacheco is a solid early-down runner, but this backfield could use another reliable presence. Jaylen Wright demonstrated promising ability as both a runner and a receiver and should be a notable upgrade on the recently re-signed Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Fifth Round (173rd Overall) – Jordan Jefferson, DT

Jordan Jefferson has a great combination of speed and athleticism, but he needs to add more strength if he’s ever going to be a regular player on the defensive line. His 14 reps on the bench press are a major red flag, and this lack of strength shows up on the film. Hopefully, an NFL weight program will give him more muscle, as that’s all that’s keeping him from being a solid starter.

Seventh Round (221st Overall) – Myles Cole, EDGE

The Chiefs wrap up this mock draft with a low-risk, high-reward edge defender in Myles Cole. Cole has the athleticism to make it in the NFL, but he’s still incredibly raw. Chances are, he’ll never reach his ceiling, as he’s already spent six years at the collegiate level. However, seeing as he only costs a seventh-round pick, he’s worth a dart throw.
