Mock Draft Roundup 4.0: Experts Leaning Towards CB for Chiefs

After a week of free agency, the consensus of draft experts has the Chiefs connected to a cornerback

We are officially 44 days away from the 2016 NFL Draft, and being just a week into free agency, there's already a consensus starting to build from the experts around the internet on what the Kansas City Chiefs might be doing with the No. 28 pick.

Of the 20 mock drafts below, seven of them have the Chiefs selecting a cornerback with their first pick, and Houston's William Jackson III is the leader as he was selected four times.

According to Lance Zierlein of NFL.com in his [scouting report](http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/william-jackson iii?id=2555179), Jackson's NFL comparison is Phillip Gaines—the third-year player for the Chiefs coming off a torn ACL suffered in Week 3 of last season.

Here's what Zierlein had to say about Jackson:

"Tall cornerbacks with length who can run and play the football are usually in high demand and that could be the case for Jackson as well. While he has the traits for the position, the league is turning into small and fast or big and strong at the receiver spot and handling those two elements could take a year or two for him to improve in before he becomes a full-time starter."

The selection makes sense with veteran CB Sean Smith having signed with the Oakland Raiders, and the Chiefs have yet to pick up a cornerback during free agency to replace him.

Last year, the Chiefs hit gold with their selection of CB Marcus Peters, who proved to be one of the best playmakers in the NFL as a rookie.

While mock drafts are still just a fun exercise to familiarize with some of the players who could be available, these players could still prove to be good options for the Chiefs.

In this week's mock draft roundup, we've added a little something by linking to the video clips of these players from the people over at Draft Breakdown, who have a database of video clips of most of the prospects this season.
