Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Roundup 3.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 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 Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Database.

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

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/20)

29. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

The Chiefs are happy to end Booth's fall to provide their secondary with a twitchy ball hawk on the outside.

ESPN - Mel Kiper (1/19)

29. Cameron Thomas, IDL, San Diego State

The Chiefs fixed their offensive line last offseason, but they still have issues on the other side of the ball. They ranked 30th in the NFL in yards per play allowed (5.9) and 31st in rushing yards allowed per carry (4.8) this season. They also had just 31 sacks, which ranked 29th. This is a defensive line that could use an infusion of young talent.

I like Thomas a lot because of his versatility -- he lined up at both tackle and end for the Aztecs and created havoc at both spots. He had 11.5 sacks and a whopping 27 total tackles for loss in 2021. He's powerful in the run game and has some bend as a pass-rusher. He'd be a menace for offensive tackles if he lined up next to Chris Jones.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (1/19)

29. Daxton Hill, S, Michigan

With Tyrann Mathieu, Charvarius Ward and Mike Hughes about to hit free agency, the Chiefs' secondary might look a little different next season. Hill is not only an option at safety, but he played a slot cornerback role for the Wolverines and can do the same in Kansas City, which would allow L'Jarius Sneed to play outside full-time.

PFF - Austin Gayle (1/17)

29. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

Florida State edge defender Jermaine Johnson, who transferred from Georgia before the 2021 season, recorded an 81.1 PFF grade and 46 total pressures for the Seminoles last season. Kansas City needs to get cheaper at premium positions with Chris Jones and Frank Clark still under contract -- Johnson is a step in the right direction.

Baltimore Sun - C.J. Doon (1/14)

29. Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce can carry the load, but the Chiefs need more options at receiver. The 6-foot, 192-pound Wilson improved each season with the Buckeyes, recording 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns in 11 games in 2021.

Athlon Sports - Bryan Fischer (1/13)

30. Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Even despite turning things around in the middle of the season, the Chiefs' defense needs reinforcements on the back end and Booth has a chance to step in immediately to contribute given how smooth he is.

San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)

30. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

Both Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson will be free agents after this season, with Mecole Hardman's contract set to expire in 2023. Dotson features the game-breaking speed to beat defenses at all three levels and is good against press coverage despite his size (5-11, 185). He has very good hands and is a very capable blocker.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/12)

30. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

A torn anterior cruciate ligament in the national championship game might take a significant toll on the draft stock of Williams, the Ohio State transfer who otherwise would have had a solid chance to be the first receiver selected, even ahead of former teammates Wilson and Olave. So long as Williams' medical evaluations check out, though, it's easy to imagine the speedy receiver who averaged 19.9 yards per catch doing significant damage in Andy Reid's offense, even starting out as a tertiary option to Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce.

For The Win - Charles McDonald (1/12)

29. Drake London, WR, USC

The Chiefs offense could use a talented wide receiver to continue to bolster their offense. London has all the skills in the world, but is working his way back from an ankle fracture.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (1/10)

29. Travon Walker, EDGE, Georgia

The Chiefs began turning things around on defense this season after making the mistake of playing Chris Jones on the edge. Now back in his natural position, the Chiefs could get what they thought they were getting on the edge by drafting Travon Walker.

Walker is a long and powerful end that is dynamic at squeezing gaps and winning with power. He could pair with Jones to give Kansas City two freaky dudes along the defensive line and keep both the interior and edge of the defensive line sturdy.
