Kansas City Chiefs 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

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:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

32. George Pickens, WR, Georgia

The Chiefs didn't get as much from Mecole Hardman in his second season (41/560/4) as they might have expected. With Sammy Watkins now in Baltimore, the Chiefs could look to add a receiver early in the draft if Hardman doesn't improve much on his 2020 production. Georgia's best receiver prospect since A.J. Green, Pickens could go higher than this, but his torn ACL this March will likely force him to miss much, if not all, of the 2021 season.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

32. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

The Kansas City Chiefs are, as of this moment, favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy at the conclusion of Super Bowl LVI. If they do find themselves picking at the end of the 2022 first round, then Purdue pass rusher George Karlaftis could be a great pick for them if he were available. He burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2019 with 7.5 sacks and 54 total tackles, including 17 for a loss. While he appeared in only three games a season ago due to injuries and COVID-19 he still managed to grab a pair of sacks. He could be a great option for a number of teams off the edge next year, including the Chiefs.

PFF - Renner (5/7)

32. Brenton Cox Jr., LB, Florida

Cox broke out for the Gators in 2020 after transferring from Georgia early on in his college career. He racked up 48 pressures on the year to go with an 80.8 pass-rushing grade.

2021 NFL Power Rankings: Kansas City Chiefs

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Kansas City Chiefs rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Chiefs in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 1

Player who benefited most from draft: QB Patrick Mahomes

The Chiefs finished a rebuild of their offensive line by trading their first-round pick to the Ravens in return for left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. and then drafting center Creed Humphrey in the second round. That means the Chiefs will have eight new linemen this upcoming season, and there's a strong possibility the Chiefs will have a completely different group of starters. Mahomes is unlikely to be harassed like he was in Super Bowl LV. -- Adam Teicher

NFL.com -- Rank: 2

The Chiefs couldn't protect Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl, and they've spent this offseason determined never to let that happen again. They gave huge money to guard Joe Thuney, then pulled off a brilliant trade in the lead-up to the draft to land Orlando Brown Jr., who has the potential to be Mahomes' sturdy blindside protector for a decade. Kansas City continued to invest up front through the draft, selecting Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey with the 63rd overall pick. Last year, the Chiefs paid Mahomes. This year, they protected him. Smart team does smart things.
