Who Will the Chiefs Pick in Round 1? | 2024 Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Here’s the latest look at who the experts think the Chiefs will draft on April 25

The 2024 NFL Draft is inching closer by the day, and with just about a month left until the first round kicks off in Detroit, the internet is rife with mock drafts and projections as to how the marquee event of the offseason will play out.

With that in mind, here's a look at who some of the latest mock drafts from around the web have the Chiefs selecting with the No. 32 overall pick on April 25. Additionally, all previous roundup articles can be found below.

Previous Roundups: 1.0

ESPN (March 19): Texas WR Adonai Mitchell

One of the godfathers of draft analysis, Mel Kiper Jr. from ESPN, has the Chiefs selecting Texas wide receiver Adonai Mitchell with the final pick of the first round in his post-free agency mock draft. Here's what Kiper had to say about the pick:

"Kansas City signed speedster Marquise Brown to a one-year deal in free agency, but that shouldn't prevent the franchise from adding another receiver early. Mitchell is a rising prospect who could complement Brown and Rashee Rice. He ran a 4.34-second 40-yard dash at the combine and had an 11-foot-4 broad jump, which tied for second among all prospects. He has excellent hands, catching 11 touchdown passes last season. He can make defenders miss after the catch, too."

Pro Football Focus (March 25): Oregon WR Troy Franklin

PFF's Brad Spielberger sent Oregon wide receiver Troy Franklin to Kansas City in his latest mock. Here's more from Spielberger on the pick:

"Franklin made one highlight-reel snag after another at Oregon this past season, always hyper-aware of exactly where he was on the field, whether that was to toe-tap along the sideline for a grab or be ready to make his first step after the catch to evade a would-be tackler. In Kansas City, Franklin's height would add another element to the newly established one-two punch of Rashee Rice and Marquise Brown."

CBS Sports (March 22): Oklahoma OT Tyler Guyton

Writer Tom Fornelli opted to select an offensive lineman with the Chiefs' first-round pick in his most recent mock draft, slotting Oklahoma offensive tackle Tyler Guyton to Kansas City with the No. 32 overall selection. Here's what Fornelli had to say about the decision:

"The tackle run continues to end the first round. Adding Marquise Brown in free agency probably doesn't keep the Chiefs from taking another receiver in the draft, but it could push them to address other needs earlier. As Patrick Mahomes approaches 30, the Chiefs should have a long-term eye on protecting him along the offensive line." (Daniel Jeremiah) (March 19): Texas WR Adonai Mitchell

NFL Media Analyst Daniel Jeremiah chose Texas wide receiver Adonai Mitchell for Kansas City to close out the first round in his latest mock. He explained his choice below:

"A lot of people might expect to see Mitchell's Texas teammate, Xavier Worthy, go here, but I feel like the Chiefs got their version of Worthy by signing Hollywood Brown. Mitchell gives Kansas City more size and physicality without sacrificing a speed element."

Yahoo! Sports (March 21): Houston OT Patrick Paul

Charles McDonald and Nate Tice from Yahoo! Sports teamed up to send Houston offensive tackle Patrick Paul to Kansas City in their most recent mock draft. Here's what they wrote about the selection:

"Paul is another high-upside home run swing at tackle for a perennial contender. Paul has super-long arms with athleticism and strength, but is more of a bundle of tools than anything close to a finished product. Andy Reid doesn't like going into a season without answers for his offensive line, and while Paul has a ways to go to realize his potential, he would give Reid and offensive line coach Andy Heck a ball of clay with long-term upside as Patrick Mahomes' blindside protector of the future."

The Athletic (March 25): Arizona OT Jordan Morgan

The Athletic's Ben Standig continued a popular trend of late by picking an offensive lineman for Kansas City at pick No. 32 overall. Here's additional analysis from Standig:

"Alabama cornerback Kool-Aid McKinstry is sitting right there. So are wide receivers Ladd McConkey and Xavier Worthy, though signing Marquise Brown curtailed angst. Concerns at left tackle remain. Morgan, a three-year starter at the position, earned All-Pac-12 honors in 2023 after an ACL tear cut his previous season short."
