Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Roundup 7.0

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 - Donahue (3/23)

31. Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame

The Super Bowl shined a very bright light on the importance of a competent offensive line. At the time, we could chalk up the incompetence of the KC O-Line in the Super Bowl to injuries, but now it's a more permanent problem with the release of both of their starting tackles.

KC has addressed the inside of the line by signing the best available free agent in Joe Thuney and also enticing Kyle Long out of retirement but could still use some help on the outside. They were reportedly in on Trent Williams before he re-signed with the 49ers. Eichenberg is a three-year starter at left tackle at Notre Dame and gives KC an experienced college player who can step in and contribute on Day 1.

NFL.com - Brooks (3/23)

31. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

The recent releases of Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher make offensive tackle a top priority for the Chiefs. Jenkins is an athletic, big-bodied blocker with the length to stymie pass rushers off the edge.

The Athletic - Beat Writers (3/23)

31. Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame

At this point, everyone knows the Chiefs need a left tackle. Perhaps the Chiefs, led by an aggressive general manager in Brett Veach, will elect on April 29 to trade up a few spots to take the best left tackle available. But they should be thrilled with the chance to select Eichenberg, a steady player who started every game at Notre Dame the past three seasons. Although Eichenberg is not the most athletic tackle in his year's class, he is consistent with his technique and has strong hands. Dane Brugler projects Eichenberg as a B-level NFL starter. Another bonus for the Chiefs is that Eichenberg's arrival would allow Lucas Niang, who opted out of last season, to focus on being the Chiefs' future starting right tackle, the position he played well at TCU. -- Nate Taylor

ESPN - Kiper (3/22)

31. Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame

The Chiefs are shaking up their offensive line, signing guards Joe Thuney and Kyle Long in free agency and letting tackles Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher and interior linemen Austin Reiter and Kelechi Osemele walk (although Kansas City could still bring back one or some of them on short-term deals). And even after retaining Mike Remmers, it makes sense to draft a young tackle who could start down the road. There's some buzz around Eichenberg, who was the Fighting Irish's left tackle for the past two seasons. He has great feet and packs a punch in the run game.

CBS Sports - Wilson (3/22)

31. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

The Chiefs cut both their offensive tackles after the season, and while they signed guards Joe Thuney and Kyle Long, and tackle Mike Remmers, Jenkins has a chance to be really good. He can play on the right or left, and more importantly, can contribute right away.

PFF - Renner (3/22)

31. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

The Chiefs did a ton to address their offensive line via free agency, but none of it did anything to fill the shoes of the two starting tackles they released. Cosmi is one of the most experienced tackles in the class. He has 1,529 career pass-blocking snaps to his name and is one heck of an athlete, as well.
