Top Newcomers

QB – Patrick Mahomes – Round 1 

Pundits raved about Mahomes, the confident, big-armed gunslinger out of Texas Tech. He may be the one to finally buck the trend of air-raid quarterbacks flunking out in the NFL. Mahomes put on a clinic at Texas Tech last season to the tune of 5,052 yards and 41 touchdowns. Accustomed to the slow-paced, methodical Alex Smith, Chiefs fans got a change of pace with the Mahomes selection.

DE – Tanoh Kpassagnon – Round 2 

The Villanova product is every bit of 6-foot-7, 289 pounds off the edge. He’ll likely come off that edge in the Chiefs’ 3-4 blueprint. He’s a physical specimen who could develop into a star if the Chiefs are patient with their second-round project.

WR – Jehu Chesson – Round 4

Kansas City’s offense has found life thanks to Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. However, there’s still a gaping hole at wide receiver that ballooned even more with the departure of Jeremy Maclin, who signed with the Baltimore Ravens. Chesson didn’t have the numbers at Michigan, but instead had the translatable tools scouts loved.

Scout’s Take

“Consistency may be the strongest thing the stable Chiefs have going for them, as they will field almost the same team in 2017 that led them to a 12-4 record and a playoff berth in 2016. This team is 44-24 in the last four years and the only thing really missing is a Super Bowl. They are led by a very steady head coach and a very experienced coaching staff. Their success in 2017 will likely rely on a terrific defense that creates turnovers and doesn’t allow a lot of points to counter an offense that is steady, but not very explosive, and doesn’t score a lot of points. A lot of low-scoring games may be ahead.”FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton.
