The Kansas City Chiefs started the 2022 NFL Draft with two straight defensive picks. They picked Trent McDuffie, a cornerback from Washington, with their first first-round pick. The Chiefs picked George Karlaftis, an edge rusher from Purdue with the second pick.

In the second round the Chiefs took Skyy Moore, a wide receiver, then took Leo Chenal, a linebacker. So it is safe to say that the Chiefs are prioritizing defense in this draft.

With pick 135, the Chiefs went back to defense and took Joshua Williams. Williams is a cornerback from Fayettville State.

Here is the scouting report on Joshua Williams:

“Williams is a tall press corner who has long arms and turns to locate the ball when he is in the phase. He’s a little tight and gives up some separation at the top of routes, but he flashes the ability to recover. He has a wide catching radius and high-points the ball. He’s lean and drops some passes, but he closes well and flashes above-average stopping power in run support and after the catch.”

The Chiefs have continued to draft players that they need, who are also the best fit for their system. In a lot of people’s opinion, including mine, they are winning this draft.
