Mock Draft Roundup 9.0: NFL Media's Bucky Brooks Weighs In

Gathering up the latest mock drafts from around the internet

If this latest mock draft roundup is any indication, Kansas City Chiefs fans are in for a fun night on Thursday, April 27.

That's because the most popular positions in this edition are what would probably be considered of high importance to most NFL fans—six analysts have the Chiefs taking a quarterback, six analysts have the Chiefs taking a wide receiver and three have the Chiefs taking a running back.

Wide Receiver

Six analysts have the Chiefs selecting a wide receiver on night one of the NFL Draft, and four chose this week's most popular name—Western Michigan's Corey Davis.

CBS Sports' Will Brinson and NFL.com's Lance Zierlein both think that Davis could go much higher, but an ankle injury prevented Davis from running the 40-yard dash at both the NFL Scouting Combine and Western Michigan's Pro Day.

It's with that notion that these analysts believe Davis could fall to No. 27, where general manager John Dorsey could scoop him up.

As USA Today's Nate Davis describes after he mocked Davis to the Chiefs, with his speed, "he and Tyreek Hill could give Kansas City its most formidable tandem since Carlos Carson and Stephone Paige in the '80s."

Quarterback

Of the six analysts that have the Chiefs taking a quarterback, the most popular name is Clemson's Deshaun Watson, who three analysts—Bucky BrooksDane Brugler and Charley Casserly—have headed to Kansas City.

All three cite Watson's skill set with the coaching skill set of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who has a history getting the most out of quarterbacks just like him (notably Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick and the Chiefs' Alex Smith).

Running Back

Three analysts had the Chiefs selecting a running back, and all three mocked Stanford's Christian McCaffrey.

Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke offered the most interesting scenario for the Chiefs to get McCaffrey, one that included the Chiefs actually *trading up *(remember last year, they traded down) with the Detroit Lions to No. 21 to nab the Stanford running back.

Here's a look at the latest mock draft picks for the Chiefs:
