2015 NFL Mock Drafts 4/30: The Experts Final Picks for Chiefs at No. 18

Compiling the final mock drafts from around the Internet

It's finally here. The 2015 NFL Draft begins Thursday night at 7 p.m. CT.

For more than two months, we've taken a look at the different mock drafts from experts around the league and who they believe the Chiefs will select with the No. 18 pick.

After free agency, many changed their tune on who the Chiefs may be taking after the signing of receiver Jeremy Maclin and the trade for offensive lineman Ben Grubbs, among other moves.

In any case, even now, there still doesn't seem to be a consensus from these experts on who the Chiefs might select with that first round pick.

Some of the best in the business are still split between offensive line, defensive line, receiver, linebacker or defensive back. This puts the Chiefs in a pretty good position and the makes the draft all that more exciting because people have no idea what the Chiefs are going to do.

While general manager John Dorsey has consistently said they'll take the best player available, until the draft begins later tonight and the Chiefs finally turn in that card, we'll still have to speculate on who that player might be this year.
