ESPN's Mel Kiper has a new 2015 NFL mock draft out where he goes three rounds deep with each team. The Kansas City Chiefs have four picks in the top 100 so they have four new players in Kiper's mock draft.

Here's how Kiper ended up with the Chiefs:

Round 1 (18) WR Jaelen Strong, Arizona St.
Round 2 (49) LB Stephone Anthony, Clemson
Round 3 (80)Damarious Randall, Arizona St.
Round 3 (98) DT Gabe Wright, Auburn

Interesting collection of players. I'm not totally sold on a receiver as Jaelen Strong is the sixth receiver off the board in this mock. There seems to be a drop off after Amari Cooper, Kevin White and DeVante Parker.

There is no offensive lineman in this group but I do think the Chiefs could easily take a lineman in the top three rounds. I'm thinking an offensive tackle that could potentially slide to the right side if Donald Stephenson and Jeff Allen leave via free agency next year.

The final pick there, DT Gabe Wright, is a need. The Chiefs have Mike DeVito and Jaye Howard at defensive end at the moment and both have their contracts coming up next year. Defensive end is arguably a higher need.

The big thing missing here is no cornerbacks. The Chiefs should definitely plan on drafting a cornerback in the first three rounds.
