Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Roundup 3.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Kansas City Chiefs from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Kansas City Chiefs, check out our 2021 Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Chiefs:

EDSFootball - Hanson (1/1)

32. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

Moved from left guard (2019) to left tackle to fill the vacancy created by Austin Jackson's NFL departure in 2020, Vera-Tucker offers some positional versatility but will shift back inside at the next level. Three of Kansas City's top six linemen in terms of snaps played in 2020 will be free agents in 2021.

San Diego Union Tribune (12/31)

32. Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State

The greatness of Patrick Mahomes covers up a lot of warts. The Chiefs offensive line needs an infusion of talent. Davis is a system-proof, plug-and-play starter at the next level and a potential All-Pro.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (12/31)

32. Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State

In last year's draft, Kansas City took advantage of a running back sliding down the board, likely due to positional value. This year they do something similar, and with interior offensive lineman Wyatt Davis sliding, the Chiefs pounce to close out the first round.

Davis is a powerful blocker with some grinder to him, and projects as a day one starter at guard in the NFL. He might be best suited for teams that are heavy gap/power offenses with inside zone mixed in, but really his abilities translate to any NFL offense. Given the variety in what the Chiefs do offensively, Davis is an immediate fit.

PFF - Gayle (12/29)

32. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

Vera-Tucker is one of the highest-graded offensive tackles in the country but best projects as an interior offensive lineman at the next level. The USC standout can fill a need at either guard position for Kansas City right away and provide depth at multiple positions as a swing piece for an offensive line that's been plagued by injuries of late.

CBS Sports - Wilson (12/29)

32. Joseph Ossai, EDGE, Texas

Ossai might have the highest motor in this draft class and in K.C. he'll give the Chiefs defense a much-needed boost off the edge.

Pro Football Network - Miller (12/26)

32. Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa

Collins may very well go in the top 20 of this 2021 2-Round NFL Mock Draft, but until we know more, he gets to head to the two-time defending champions (in this scenario). This young man plays edge, linebacker, safety, and fills up the water cooler.

His movement skills at 260-pounds boggles the mind at times. Collins is not super explosive for the position, but his fluidity is ideal for surviving in coverage at the next level. He adds value as a playmaker in coverage and as a pass rusher, and that versatility is perfect for a team that needs a linebacker that isn't a Dallas Cowboys retread.

PFF - Renner (12/23)

32. Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Miami (FL)

Phillips was the No. 1 recruit according to 247 sports back in 2017 for a reason. At 6-foot-6, 266 pounds, Phillips has special movement skills for a man that size. Toward the end of this season, he finally started to translate that to the football field. He racked up 36 pressures over his final seven games and looked like a different player from the one we saw at UCLA.

Bleacher Report - Miller (12/22)

32. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

General manager Brett Veach will do two things no matter the cost: protect Patrick Mahomes and give him weapons to whom to throw. Last year's first-rounder, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, was a weapon. This year's will be a protection piece who will be a plug-and-play Pro Bowl candidate at guard.
