2018 NFL Mock Draft Roundup: Are These Guys Soon-To-Be Chiefs?

Who’s it going to be?

There's no more waiting. The 2018 NFL Draft is finally here.

For many die-hard NFL fans, this is one of the best three-day stretches of the entire year.

There's suspense, intrigue, and the ever-growing sentiment of hope for all teams across the league who feel they could be one draft away from taking that next step, whatever that might be for them.

The Kansas City Chiefs' personnel department has been putting in the work for the last few months (and even longer for the area scouts) to try and find the handful of players that will help become the foundation of what this team will become over the next few years.

All that work leads us to this weekend, and while fans and media personalities have spent months throwing their hat in the ring for what they'd do if they were in charge of NFL teams, now it's the turn of those whose jobs are in many cases on the line each year for the decisions they make and the teams they ultimately build.

It's their turn to do what they do. 

That said, there's one more round of mock drafts to take a look at before things kick-off Thursday Night at 7:00 p.m. CT on NFL Network/Fox/ESPN with the first round.  

The #NFLDraft starts tonight.
