The 2024 NFL Draft is just three weeks away, which means there are more projections and breakdowns popping up across the internet by the day.

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 | 2.0

NFL.com (Lance Zierlein) (April 2): Georgia WR Ladd McConkey

Draft Analyst Lance Zierlein selected Georgia wide receiver Ladd McConkey with the No. 32 overall pick in his latest mock draft. Here's what he wrote about the decision:

"The Chiefs snag an inside/outside receiver who is one of the most polished, game-ready targets in this class."

ESPN (April 3): Missouri CB Ennis Rakestraw Jr.

ESPN Insider Field Yates has the Chiefs selecting a local product in Mizzou cornerback Ennis Rakestraw to close out the first round. Here's a portion of Yates' analysis:

"…Few corners can impose their will on a game like Rakestraw did at the collegiate level; that will travel to the pros. Alternatively, Kansas City could look at receivers or offensive tackles, but with six and eight, respectively, already drafted, it might be best to wait until Day 2 there."

The Sporting News (April 2): Texas WR Xavier Worthy

Tyler Forness from The Sporting News chose Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy for the Chiefs in his latest mock draft. Here's what Forness had to say about the pick:

"The Chiefs need to find a way to bolster their receiving corps and Worthy can do a little bit of everything, including be a speed demon. We know how the Chiefs can use a player with elite speed."

The Ringer (March 28): Arizona OT Jordan Morgan

The folks at The Ringer chose an offensive tackle for Kansas City to close out Round 1, sending Arizona's Jordan Morgan to the Chiefs. Here's more on the pick:

"I'll prioritize tackle here with Jordan Morgan, a popular player to mock in the late first round due to his developmental traits. Morgan does not have traditional length (his arms measured under 33 inches at the combine), but he is quick and explosive, and has played a ton of football. No better way to learn how to work around your length deficiencies than with experience."

NFL.com (Eric Edholm) (March 29): BYU OT Kingsley Suamataia

Lead Draft Writer Eric Edholm also elected to go with an offensive tackle for Kansas City, but instead of Morgan, he chose BYU's Kingsley Suamataia. He explained the selection below:

"I could see a receiver coming off the board here, but the need at tackle feels bigger to me right now. Andy Reid can dip into his former school's talent to land the massive, gifted Suamataia, whose tape is good but slightly underwhelming. Still, all the elements are there for the former five-star recruit to be a good pro."

CBS Sports (April 3): Texas WR Adonai Mitchell

A popular pick for Kansas City over the last several weeks, CBS Sports' Ryan Wilson sent wide receiver Adonai Mitchell to the Chiefs to wrap up the first round. Here's more from Wilson:

"The Chiefs added Hollywood Brown in free agency, but there's also room for AD Mitchell, who [has] size, speed and explosiveness."
