Todd McShay's updated mock draft has a new pick for the Kansas City Chiefs

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The latest 2014 NFL mock draft from ESPN's Todd McShay has a new name for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Many of the NFL Draft conversations going on in Kansas City have the KC Chiefs taking a wide receiver. An understandable selection for a position of need. The draft's top two receivers -- Clemson's Sammy Watkins and Texas A&M's Mike Evans -- will be gone by the time the Chiefs pick at No. 23. So the Chiefs fans focus has been on receivers LSU's Odell Beckham Jr., USC's Marqise Lee and OSU's Brandin Cooks (with some FSU's Kelvin Benjamin thrown in there).

ESPN's Todd McShay released a new mock draft today with Cooks, Lee and Beckham off the board. He has a new name at No. 23 for the Chiefs -- Indiana WR Cody Latimer.

Yes, it is a surprise. McShay even admits as much in his write-up saying that this is "the big surprise pick of the first round" and acknowledges this might be a little early for him. CBS Sports says it may be a lot early. They have the 6'3, 215-pound receiver projected in the fifth round. Huh. Quite the difference there.

Some of his accomplishments:

Latimer became the fifth Hoosier to surpass 1,000 yards in a season and his total of 1,096 ranks third all-time at IU. His 72 receptions are fourth and his nine scores are ninth. On the Hoosiers career lists, Latimer's 135 catches and 2,152 yards are seventh, and his 17 touchdowns are tied for fifth. The Dayton, Ohio, native recorded five 100-yard games in 2013, which is tied for third in a single season, and owns seven in his career, which is tied for fourth.

A few other notes on him:
