2015 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 4/18: Who do analysts think the Chiefs should take at No. 18?

Each week we'll bring you the picks in the latest mock drafts from analysts across the NFL for the Kansas City Chiefs.

With the Chiefs holding the No. 18 pick in the upcoming NFL draft, many have already begun speculating on who they believe they might be targeting with that pick.

In the 15 mock draft selections listed below, the experts have selected an offensive lineman and receiver for the Chiefs on five occasions each, a cornerback twice as well as a safety, defensive lineman and linebacker once a piece.

With six positions selected by 15 different people, the Chiefs look to have the ability to go a lot of different directions according to these experts.

The Chiefs have selected an offensive lineman in the first round more times than any other position. For more information on what the Chiefs have done with every draft selection since 1967, read the History of Chiefs Draft Picks by Position.
