KANSAS CITY – The Chiefs traded away a first-, third-, and fourth-round pick in order to move to up 21st overall, but as we all know, they still have plenty of ammo heading into Day 2 of the draft.

So, who are the top-10 players remaining that best fit what the Chiefs are looking for in the draft?

Let’s waste no time diving in. In no specific order, here are the top-10 players that are left on the board:

  • WR George Pickens – Pickens would be the ultimate compliment to the Chiefs’ current receiving corps and is one of the top-5 players left on the board.
  • CB Andrew Booth Jr. – The Chiefs don’t need to shy away from taking another corner in the draft, especially considering how Steve Spagnuolo likes to use his defensive backs. Booth Jr. is a great fit for this defense.
  • CB Kyler Gordon – Gordon is an athletic freak and has effective versatility. He can also play run support and isn’t afraid to get physical when tackling opposing offensive players.
  • WR Christian Watson – He may not have the biggest impact in 2022, but if the Chiefs want to play the long game, Watson will give them one of the most dynamic weapons in the NFL. He and Patrick Mahomes would be an incredible duo.
  • RB Breece Hall – The Chiefs have a pretty healthy stable of running backs, but questions linger around all of them. Three of the four will be without contracts after 2022, as well. Hall is an effective runner and pass-catcher. He’d be a great piece for this offense.
  • WR Skyy Moore – Are you sensing a trend with some of these players? The Chiefs are nearly guaranteed to take a receiver in the second. Moore is a bit small, but he is as explosive as any other receiver. Sound a bit familiar?
  • DT Travis Jones – He would be a good replacement for Jarran Reed and gives the Chiefs some Grade-A beef along the offensive line. Jones would eat up blocks and allow Frank Clark and George Karlaftis to get after the quarterbacks even more than they already will.
  • S Jalen Pitre – Tyrann Mathieu is obviously gone. The Chiefs signed Justin Reid and Deon Bush to take his place and Juan Thornhill is still around. But, Bush is on a one-year deal and Thornhill is in the last year of his deal. Pitre would add excellent depth and could take over for Bush or Thornhill if one or both don’t return after 2022.
  • EDGE Boye Mafe – Mafe isn’t exactly what the Chiefs employ in regard to pass rushers, but he’s still developing his ceiling is extremely high. Spagnuolo can use the time it takes to develop him to also help figure out how to use Mafe’s talents. He could be an effective LEO-type player for Spags in Year 1 while he continues to develop his game. He is well worth the Day 2 dice roll.
  • LB Nakobe Dean – The Chiefs appear to have the linebacker position set with Willie Gay and Nick Bolton, but Dean would provide excellent competition and could even take over. Gay’s starting spot. Dean and Bolton would be a great combo at the second level of the defense.
