*Round 1: No. 32 overall-A.J. Terrell CB Clemson-corner is the most important position on the team with the losses they have.  Antonio Hamilton signing does bring depth but would be getting far more work at corner than he has ever seen. 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: No. 63-Malik Harrison LB-Ohio State-Staying with this pick here, no reason to change it-He could slide into the next round but Chiefs would have a chance picking this late.  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: No. 96-Chase Claypool WR-Notre Dame-became the 2nd receiver at 6'4" receiver to be 235 lbs or more and run a sub 4.5 joining ----Calvin Johnson.  This stays with the model that the Chiefs won't pass on a WR in the first 3 rounds.  In what is the best WR class we may have ever seen....that and the 1996 class.  Chase is a great fit with that size.  Chiefs tallest receiver on roster is 6'1" plus he plays phyical.  Perfect fit.

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

The comparison to former teammate Miles Boykin is an easy one since both have elite size and explosiveness, but Claypool has a higher ceiling and is a little more pro-ready. Claypool doesn't have shake to get much separation underneath, but he's physical inside the route and is adept at making contested catches when needed. He has size/strength/speed to bedevil singled up cornerbacks on 50/50 deep balls. He's a vertical challenger outside, a possession receiver as a big slot, an outstanding run blocker and immediate coverage ace on special teams. His elite traits and diverse skill set could allow him to create a unique footprint as a pro.

From the Draft Network:

Height, weight, speed, physical specimen. Won’t get bumped off his spot as a route runner or at the catch point and he embraces the physical components of the position. Comes down with his share of contested catches where he finds success because of his frame and body positioning. Love the way he competes after the catch and challenges defenders with physicality. He isn’t overly creative but he battles for yards and works to find space. Has experience adjusting to erratic throws from the Notre Dame quarterbacks and he improved their accuracy. Does well to extend his catch radius, particularly above the rim. He isn’t overly twitchy but there is some deceptiveness to his route running ability. Will eat up off-man coverage and will be a mismatch from the slot. Makes good adjustments running routes against zone, showcasing good pace and timing. Experienced working on special teams coverage units. 


****Round 4: No. 138-A.J. Dillon-RB Boston College-big physical back that put up great numbers at the combine.  Might be a stretch to still be here in the 4th.  Ran a 4.53 at 247 pounds. 3 straight years over 1,000 yards and 38 touchdowns in 3 years.  Only 13 catches would have to improve in that area.

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

Built like a minibus but possessing enough vision and finesse to avoid being pigeon-holed as just a pure power back. Dillon is capable of handling heavy workloads and wearing down defenses, but there is a concern from evaluators that it's taken a physical toll on him. He's a disciplined runner who trusts his blocking scheme and follows his rush track. He's a good one-cut runner with below-average wiggle but natural power to create yards after contact. Dillon will find more space as he faces fewer loaded boxes as a pro, but dropping weight and adding quickness could be the difference between a future as a committee back or starter.

From the Draft Network:

He does a nice job between the tackles to process soft spaces and hit the hole hard and with momentum. Visual field provides shallow cuts to redirect to adjacent gaps. Would like to see a bit more patience on outside runs to fall in line or cut back in line behind lead blocks. 

***** Round 5: No. 177-Michael Onwenu-OL-Michigan-played right guard but huge imposing size at 6'3" 344 pounds.

From Lance Zierlein NFL.COM:

Overview

Powerful and wide, Onwenu's natural play strength is somewhat offset by his below-average athletic ability. With better hand placement and attention to footwork, he can take a step forward as a drive blocker with the ability to move bodies around, but he'll be a scheme-specific prospect who could struggle against quick, upfield players and sub-package rushers. He has backup guard ability and potential as a Day 3 pick.

Strengths

Tremendous girth from his chest to his toes

Matches NFL size with NFL strength

Upper-body strength to put people on the ground

Can hold ground and stalemate against like power

Surprising recovery balance for a big man

Possesses heavy hands with ability to redirect edge rush

Good overall physicality and demeanor

Waste of time for power rushers who want to run through him

From the Draft Network:

Functional Athleticism - Has surprising mobility for a player of his stature. He's not going to hit high landmarks on the second level but given his frame (362 lbs), he's got much better foot activity than you'd expect. Smooth with redirection as a result as well and effective with his mirror skills in space as a pass protector.
