On Tuedsay, NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah printed his third mock draft — this one following the massive San Francisco 49ers–Miami Dolphins–Philadelphia Eagles trades that shook up the draft’s first dozen picks.
The final time round, Jeremiah thought offensive tackles Penei Sewell, Rashawn Slater, Christian Darrisaw, Jaylen Mayfield and Teven Jenkins could be off the board earlier than the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs picked Alabama middle Landon Dickerson with the thirty first decide. This time, Jeremiah thinks Slater, Sewell, Darrisaw, Jenkins and Dickerson might be gone — and he has the Chiefs taking a nook.
31. Kelvin Joseph • CB • Kentucky
Kansas Metropolis has all the time valued elite traits. Joseph is huge, quick and explosive. He’s a bit bit uncooked, however he might crew up with L’Jarius Sneed to present the Chiefs two younger, athletic cornerbacks.
The final time — in mid-February — we famous that Jeremiah may very well be onto one thing together with his number of the middle Dickerson.
2020 undrafted free agent Darryl Williams is presently the one middle signed to the crew. Final season’s starter Austin Reiter — and backup Daniel Kilgore — may also be free brokers.
However since then, the Chiefs have launched each beginning tackles, signed two free agent guards and a middle — and re-signed offensive lineman Mike Remmers, who began rather than proper deal with Mitchell Schwartz for many of final season.
So with tackles Samuel Cosmi, Dillon Radunz, Alex Leatherwood, Jaylen Mayfield and Liam Eichenberg nonetheless obtainable, Jeremiah now goes with a cornerback? After the Chiefs re-signed starter Charvarius Ward in mid-March?
All due respect to Joseph — whom some evaluators see as a first-round expertise (though the Arrowhead Pleasure Nerd Squad’s 2021 KC Draft Information doesn’t) — and few would argue the Chiefs shouldn’t attempt for a nook someplace within the draft. However given the circumstances, would this be the very best first-round transfer for Kansas Metropolis?
A cornerback to the Chiefs at 31?
Sure… this one!
Sure… however NOT this one.
