Simulated Mock Drafts


Recommended Posts

Just adding a place to put these,  obviously a ton will change by the end of the year.

32 - Jackson  Carmon - OT - Clemson

* Similar to Lucas Niang,   may need a year to grow.   Future LT,   might lock up LG for a year

64 - Hamsah Nasirildeen - S - Florida State

* Listed as a Safety,  very versatile player.  LB/Nickel spots in subpackages

96 - Alec Lindstrom - C - Boston College

*Doubt he will be here,  but multiple OL are needed

127 - Tre McKitty - TE - Georgia

*Hey I drafted a TE,    really like this kid.   

159 - Tyreke Smith - DE - Ohio State

*Highly doubtful he is here this late,   athletic kid who just needs to grow more.   Doubtful he declares if he doesn't have a big year

223 - Thayor Munford - OL - Ohio State

*Probably a 4th/5th Round player.    OT at Ohio State, but would see him pretty similar to Yasir Durant.

 

 

LB really had nothing worth it at any point in this draft.

Positional wise I like it. Ideally I'd take out one of the OL and add a LB

I didn't catch this part until I posted. I haven't scouted players yet, so this saddens me to hear as I see it as a top 3 need.

You’ll like this LB class,  it’s pretty top heavy.     I could have nabbed Cameron McGrone,  who is a beast but I tend to not select RS Soph this early in the year.  
 

Merlin Robertson and Baron Browning are guys I need to watch more of.  They both pop with necessary athleticism at MLB, not sure about other parts of their game

32:  Jackson Carman, OT Clemson

64: Rashawn Slater, OL Northwestern 

95: Baron Browning, LB Ohio State

133: Tamorrion Terry, WR Florida St.

172: Cole Van Lanen, OL Wisconsin 

173: Daelin Hayes, DE Notre Dame 

177: Frank Darby, WR Arizona St.

254: Camryn Bynum, CB California 

 

Really liked this one.   Carman/Niang give us 2 long term options at T.   Slater/Van Lanen would transition inside to guard spots. 
Browning is another H/W/S linebacker who is raw. 
Hayes looks the part. 
Terry/Darby are both X guys,  I really like Terry.

Bynum is all over the place board wise, but he looks awesome on film to me.  He won’t test well.

Would have liked to slide one of the OL to a Center, but didn’t want to reach.   TE was also missed

I did one because why not. I still haven't done any scouting yet, so my picks are more position oriented than specific player. Although I did take a small peek at each player I selected.

 

29. Micah Parsons, LB Penn State - Actually, I like this player. I doubt he's here though. But in this mock he fell so I'll gladly take him.

61. Josh Myers, C Ohio State - Another player that I like on initial assessment. Positional wise, it's a need.

92. Terrace Marshall Jr, WR LSU - Chiefs WRs currently under contract in 2021: Hill and Hardman. That's it. Positional need and a good player.

131. Patrick Jones II, DE Pittsburgh - I liked what little tape I saw. We're likely losing Kpass, Taco, and Okafor after this year.

140. Richie Grant, S UCF - Had a fantastic 2018 but didn't do as well in 2019. Good guy to develop and bring in as a potential Sorenson (UFA) replacement.

170. Warren Jackson, WR Colorado St. - Gives Mahomes a big target (6'6") who can move.

179. Mustafa Johnson, DL Colorado - We could use the depth/rotation. Just like Grant, he did real well in 2018 but his numbers fell in 2019.

231. Grant Hermanns, OT Purdue - The man is 6'7 and 300lbs. Developmental guy at OT.

252. Nate Hobbs, CB Illinois - Depth guy who I think has some potential.

 

I wanted to take a CB and another OL higher, but there was never any value. I also want to note that Ali Fayad, LB/DE Western Michigan has the potential to be a late round gem based on what little I saw. However, he wasn't listed in the Players Available section on fanspeak. But he should be.

I'm doing one more. But it'll be my last until December most likely. It's way to early but I'm doing this assuming that the cap drops. This would give the Chiefs an estimated 180.6mil for a cap according to Spotrac.

This means, before a single move is made, the Chiefs are approximately 15.4mil OVER the cap. This is something that all teams will deal with, so I'm not too worried at this point. I think it means we'll see quite a few players signing one year deals for near vet minimum just because of how many teams will have a cap issue. This would favor us and other contenders. This will however likely hurt comp picks in 2022. Ultimately, I think the league has a one or two year period of leniency for the cap.

Walking: I'm not even going to list everyone. We have 19 UFA, 5 ERFA, and 5 RFA.

Cutting (cap gain): Damien Williams (2.2mil), Chad Henne (1.3mil)

Extend: Tyrann Mathieu, Eric Fisher, Tyreek Hill, Derrick Nnadi (I went with Fisher and not Schwartz due to being two years younger and the uncertainty of Schwartz's injury)

Re-signing: Darrel Williams, Ben Niemann, Charvarius Ward, Byron Pringle, Alex Brown, Andrew Wylie, Deon Yelder (Due to cap issues, we likely aren't keeping any big names. I assume it will only be ERFA/RFA) - I do think Demarcus Robinson would come back for vet minimum once more.

The only way that we get out of cap hell for the year is extensions. We could cut Mathieu (14.8mil), Hill (10.5mil), Fisher (11.5mil), and/or Schwartz (6.3mil). But none of us want that. We have significantly more cap space in 2022 (81mil+) so extensions are the way to go imo.

Draft:

29. Alex Leatherwood, OT Alabama - Future bookend tackle to play opposite Niang. In this mock Parsons fell again. It would be so hard to pass on him, but did so here for variety.

61. Trey Smith, OG Tennessee - The man can play and would solidify an OG spot. He can also play OT if needed. I'd love him here if medical checks out.

92. Tyler Shelvin, DL LSU - Great effort, great vs the run, and can impact the passing game. Would instantly upgrade the rotation and allow for Nnadi to walk in 2022 if required. He could drop due to opting out of this season.

131. Seth Williams, WR Auburn - We have the need and this guy is good.

140. Kylin Hill, RB Mississippi St. - Depth player who I think would take on the Le'Veon Bell role that we're about to see.

170. Obi Eboh, CB UCLA - Looks like the type of CB Spag's likes to use and I like what little tape I saw. We could use the depth and he could compete to start. (Highlights say Stanford, but he was a transfer to UCLA)

179. Tariq Thompason, S San Diego State - Depth that we need. Not sure we can bring back Sorenson or Tedric Thompson and Watts is entering his final year.

233. Rayshard Ashby, LB Virginia Tech - Looking at his stats and limited film, I think he has potential to be a sleeper. I'd have to see more film but initial viewing is positive. I think he goes higher than the 7th; I'd guess 3rd-5th round without seeing more.

252. Samori Toure, WR Montana - Underrated or even un-rated guy. Based on initial viewings, he has good hands and good body control. Not our typical WR but more of a steady and consistent guy.

Note: I didn't pick him, but Levi Onwuzurike DL Washington reminded me of Chris Jones and it isn't just the #95. I could see him rising up draft boards.

Maybe @samsel23 can confirm or correct this; but this draft seems real deep in OL, DL, and somewhat CB. Also top heavy at LB, RB, and DE. The WR class looked good to me but it consists more of WR2 or WR3 type players. Right now I would bet on our first pick being OL. We have the need and the depth is really there all across the board. I could see LB if one of the top guys fall just because the OL depth is there.

another one;    sadly missed out on any Centers.

30.  Tyson Campbell,   CB Georgia

* Don't think CB is a huge need,   but he was the best value.

62.  Christian Darrisaw, OT Virginia Tech

* Solid LT prospect

93.  Baron Browning, LB, Ohio State

* Another athletic LB

131.  Tamorrion Terry, WR Florida State

* My favorite mid round WR

170. Cordell Volson, OT North Dakota State

* RT/OG Project

173. Luke Farrell, TE Ohio State

* Solid,  idk that he'll ever start.   But it keeps Keizer off the field/roster

177. Thayer Munford, OT Ohio State

*OG Project

206. Kuony Deng,  LB/Edge California

* Just an athletic defender

Hits:   OL Depth,  Defense sub packages.
Misses:  Center, Edge 

30:   Alex Leatherwood,  OT/OG.   Alabama      -  Could probably slide into LG day 1,  possible LT of the future.
62.  Hamsah Nasirildeen,  S/LB.  Florida State  -  Nice subpackage player for Spags right away.
93. Teven Jenkins,  OT/OG. Oklahoma State   -    Little bit of a project, but similar to Niang in that I think he solidifies one of RG/RT by year 2.
131.  Baron Browning,  LB.    Ohio State -   Athletic guy,   still think he goes quite a bit higher than this come draft time.
170.  T.J. Carter, CB.   Memphis  -   Feisty CB,    I'm not sure he tests all that well... but I like his complete game and he definitely likes the physical portion of football.
173. Tamorrion Terry, WR.   Florida State   -    He's dropping,  but I still like him.   He looks the part,   not sure it ever clicks.   But guys this big shouldn't move this well.
177. Cordell Volson.  OT/OG.   North Dakota State  -    I like him most at OG,  but he does have decent movement skills.  Could possibly stick at rt
204.  Luke Farrell, TE.  Ohio State  -      I think the thing I like most about Farrell,  is you know what you're getting.   He's going to be a great blocking TE regardless,  you can stick him on your roster and try to develop a more athletic guy behind him.

Got bored, thought I'd check one out.

30. Josh Myers, C Ohio Stat - One of, if not the top centers in the draft. Kilgore and Reiter are both FA.

62. Terrace Marshall, WR LSU - He reminds me of Sammy and I think he could fill that role nicely.

93. Nick Bolton, LB Missouri - I've seen him anywhere from the 1st to here. I think he's a no-brainer in the third.

 

I've been seeing Kyle Pitts, TE Florida available at our pick quite a bit lately. I really don't want to take a TE in the 1st. But man, it would be hard to pass on him. I don't see this actually happening though.

Fanspeak?   I quit using that site, as I feel like they just upload a bulk list of players in order without really doing much research.    Pitts is one of many that seemed to have an odd projection.

 

It's just personal opinion but I like Draft Networks ALOT more,  I feel like they actually dig into the players.

Yep. Did a quick three rounder to do a quick comparison.

30. Hamilcar Rashed Jr., Edge Oregon State - Potentially a slight reach. But OL class is deep and there wasn't a clear #1 choice here. I like my initial viewing of him.

62. Walker Little, OL Stanford - Played LT at Stanford. I'm more worried about Schwartz as time goes on. Hopefully Niang has been staying in the weight room.

93. Nico Collins, WR Michigan - Another guy who I think can fill Watkins/Robinson role next year and beyond.

 

I like Draft Network more after trying it out. The board fell absolutely terribly for the Chiefs in each round, which is a real possibility. But I'm happy with the result.

Some teams picks I just don't agree with such as Ravens taking TE, Bucs a RB, and Broncos an OT in the 1st. But it's early so who knows.
