*Round 1 pick 32-A.J. Terrell CB-Clemson-Sticking with corner as top priority-bigger corner at 6'1" and 195 pounds that ran a 4.42 at the combine.  20 pass break ups and 6 interceptions at Clemson.

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

Long, press-man cornerback with thin lowers, but good overall size. Terrell has the foot agility and patience to pedal and mirror the release or jab and ride on it aggressively. He's an above-average athlete with quick burst to close out space in tight quarters, but he's not a classic click-and-close talent from off-man and issues with balance prevent sudden stops to shadow at the top of the route. The size and ability to hound 50/50 balls deserve recognition, but he lacks ballhawking traits, which could cap him as an average future starter.

Strengths

Played in high-leverage matchups in the postseason

Has ability to grind on receivers from press

Punches inside shoulder and leverages release outside

Backpedal is low and steady

Adequate foot agility to mirror

Patient allowing release to develop before declaring hips

Maintains feel in early stages of the route and is quick to crowd the receiver

Hip flip from pedal is twitchy and relatively clean

Reads quarterback's eyes from Cover 3 shuffle

Plays into receivers in tight quarters, disrupting catch timing

Springy jump-ball challenger with plus body control and soft hands

From the Draft Network: 

PROS: Terrific athlete with excellent pattern-matching skills, quick feet, clean transitions and fluid hips. Love how tight he plays in coverage, allowing little cushion and staying connected defending quick game. Finds consistent success in press coverage with excellent balance, patience, hand usage and willingness to crowd receivers in the contact window. Outstanding in click and close situations, driving forward on the football and being disruptive. Does well to play through the hands of the receiver to challenge at the catch point. Has the ideal size for the position and he transitions well for a taller corner. Effective leveraging outside releases, layering coverage and squeezing routes. Good eye discipline, showcasing the ability to read the backfield while remaining in phase. Long and rangy. 

 

**Round 2 pick 63-**Pick 63 round 2-Malik Harrison LB-Ohio State-Big, phyical and tough. I had Zack Baun LB in the first round in mock 1.0 going big run stuffer for the Chiefs in this round.  Malik was first team all Big Ten. 16.5 tackles for loss this year.

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

Long-legged, loose-hipped linebacker with desired combination of size, physicality and range to help ruin the running game for teams needing linebacker help. His constant downhill mode disrupts blocking schemes and brings impact tackles, but it can be used against him with play-action and misdirection. The instincts are just average but his physical traits even it out on most snaps. He has some coverage limitations but can pressure the pocket as a blitzer and has the athleticism to spy mobile quarterbacks. He's big and tough with the potential to become a good starter inside or as a 4-3 strong-side linebacker.

From the Draft Network:

Tackling - He's a physical finisher, really good grip strength and wrap/roll ability to wrangle ball carriers. Closing burst is good and he does do a good job coming to balance when working off blocks to ensure he's able to finish challenges in the gap. 

Block Shedding - His ability to unload and coil into shedding reps is strong and allows him to stand up offensive linemen and neutralize forward push effectively. Good hand pop — he doesn't have elite length but his unload and coil into blocks offsets well enough for him to stack/extend. 

Competitive Toughness - Boomer, plays with a physical presence and thrives when teams try to come down hill at him and play man on man. Appreciate his motor, range and effort to work back into plays as a rally defender and shows good functional strength and leverage to stalemate bigger blockers. 

 

***Round 3 pick 96-Michael Pittman WR USC-Toughness and size come to mind with Pittman.  Chiefs tallest receiver is 6'1" but Pittman fits a body type they do not have at 6'4'.  Also an good run blocker.  101 catches for 1,275 yards this year and 11 td's.

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

Big, smart and reliable, Pittman falls into the "possession receiver" bin, but has top-notch ball skills that allow him to bully and best cornerbacks down the field. Improving release quickness against press will be an early focal point in an NFL camp, but his frame and physicality should create work space underneath even with close coverage. He lacks the speed and separation quickness teams covet from WR1 candidates, but he comes from NFL bloodlines and plays with a pro demeanor. He should be a productive plug-and-play talent at WR2 early in his career.

From the Draft Network:

He brings good overall athleticism and physicality to the WR position. In the run game he is a good stalk blocker due to his toughness and physicality. He runs strong with the football after the catch. In the passing game, he is good in contested catch situations. He demonstrates the toughness to catch a 6 route when contact is imminent. He is sufficient as a route runner and demonstrates excellent tracking ability when the ball is in the air. He also displays good, strong hands to pluck the football. He is very competitive and will be good in the red area and goal line situations. His skill set is likely best suited to play X or as a big slot. He will be a 4 phase, core special teamer in the NFL.

 

****Round 4 pick 138-****Pick 138 round 4-Zack Moss RB-Utah-Tough runner.   This would be the guy to help the Chiefs continue to dominate 3rd down conversions as they led the league last year at 48%.  Ran for over 1,000 yards his last 3 years and had over 6.0 yards per carry in each of the last 2.  Finished last year with 1,416 yards rushing with 15 touchdowns and added 28 catches for 388 yards and 2 touchdowns receiving.

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

Watching Moss' game tape is like watching an exercise in controlled violence on just about every carry, but his vision, balance, patience and wiggle are additional skills that help to make him a well-rounded runner. There is some wear and tear that could lend additional importance to his medicals and he may need to become more discerning with his physical challenges if he wants to see a second contract. He is a great fit for gap and inside zone-heavy rushing attacks and could become an effective, instant starter.

Strengths

Well-built with power dispersed throughout

Both patient and urgent gears at his disposal

Runs with rare calm in the face of early penetration

Underrated vision to process and game plan beyond the line of scrimmage

Adequate burst inside with feel for the contour of the running lane

Short-stepping running style with elite contact balance

Arm tacklers might want to call in sick

Absorbs contact like a cement truck

Spin moves toss tacklers aside

Drops and squares pads as a finisher

Small space power to move the chains and find the paint

Has ability to handle third down duties if called into action

From the Draft Network:

Change of Direction: Wicked loose for a big man. Can drop his hips hard and snap his way into a different angle seemingly at will, with an eye-popping amount of body control for a player with such a boxy frame. Has nice reflexes and really active, quick feet to immediately redirect when defenders pops into gaps. Does have to generate runaway speed when working to outflank opponents and accordingly has a bad gear down when looking to fully change his course -- at best with smaller, more fluid redirections than true cutbacks.

Power: Brings the boomstick. Sees red when a defensive back or linebacker stops his feet in the hole and looks to punish. Has good natural leverage and good flexibility to get his shoulder even lower than an opponent who's trying to cut him at the knees. Tremendous hitting power allows for broken tackles in tight spaces, as well as pile-driving ability in short yardage situations.

 

*****Round 5 pick 177-Trey Adams OL-Washington-first team All Pac-12 at left tackle-could be 4th or 5th rounder.   Tough and huge individual. Suffered an inury at washington.

Washington OL vs Oregon 2019Washington OL vs Oregon 2019Washington OL vs Oregon 2019Washington OL vs Oregon 2019Washington OL vs Oregon 2019

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

After watching his 2016 tape in the summer of 2017, I came away believing Adams might be the most talented young tackle in college football. However, a 2017 ACL tear and 2018 back injury have taken several points away from his athletic rating. His pass sets look pretty and he still possesses adequate movement talent, but his struggles to withstand force against his edge as a run blocker and pass protector should be a red flag for most offensive line coaches. Gathering medical info and determining recovery potential will be critical in projecting his pro prospects. He has talent at a priority position, but if he doesn't get stronger and play much better than his 2019 tape, it will be hard for him to keep a starting job for long.

Strengths

Broad through hips and waist

Quick out of his stance and into pass sets

Sets with consistent balance and posture

Jump-sets edge speed to alter rusher's game plan

Works to reset hands when he loses positioning

Overcame physical adversity over two-year span

Maintained adequate athleticism for most move blocks

Patient to land with accurate block fits

Capable pull blocker

Plus body control to bend and adjust in space

From the Draft Network:

PROS: Tough and tenacious player in the trenches. He plays with very good block temperament in the run game. He is a finisher that plays from snap to whistle. He displays very good upper body strength and gets good vertical push in the run game. He is good at locating and engaging at the second level. He also does a good job getting his body in the position to wall off defenders. In the passing game he is very good. He plays with good length on the perimeter. He does a good job getting his second step in the ground. He displays very good short set anchor and good lateral agility to redirect on a defenders inside move

 

-WILD CARD-----(They do not pick here--my guess would be to move--to possibly the third to get Matt and give up this pick or future considerations) Matt Hennessy IOL-Temple-Tough player who was seen as one of the toughest players on Temple.   Could play center or any of the guard positions.  Chiefs love versatile lineman that they can move around.  Could go early in this draft but a name to watch.

 

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

Three-year starter who uses hand placement, leverage and athletic ability to make up for his lack of mass and length. He's patient to center blocks and runs his feet to lock in and begin sustaining. He has the lateral quickness and body control to reach, pull and stay connected to blocks on the move. He has issues with timing blocks up to linebackers, but that should be correctable. Below-average physical traits could limit his suitors, but scheme fits will like the movement and intangibles he brings to the table. He has early backup, eventual starter potential.

Strengths

Awarded single-digit practice jersey as one of the toughest players on the team

Flexible lowers and plus athleticism to race and reach on zone

Offers ability to pull and get out on screens

Works low to high with consistent pad level into contact

Leverages and lifts on base blocks

Holds his post through double teams

Stays after his single blocks with determination to sustain

Consistent balance and posture in his pass sets

Keeps hands quiet and punch-ready

Lands tight punch into frame and immediately gets into mirror mode

From the Draft Network:

PROS: A true technique with outstanding technique, range, football IQ and body control. Does a terrific job of establishing body positioning in the run game and finding leverage points on his opponents. Builds a consistent base to operate from with ideal foot quickness. Plays with terrific leverage, bend and posture that helps him stay square, sustain blocks and anchor. Punches are efficient, well-timed and properly placed. Body works in concert, with all pieces working together to execute with consistency. Plays under control and trusts his technique. Aware and alert in pass protection with an astute understanding of where to help when uncovered and he does a great job anticipating blitzers and responding. Three-year starter that earned a single-digit practice jersey that is reserved for the toughest players on the team.
