ESPN's Todd McShay agrees with NFL Network's Mike Mayock and sends Florida State C Cameron Erving to the Kansas City Chiefs in their latest 2015 NFL mock draftESPN's Mel Kiper disagrees and has the KC Chiefs selecting Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman.

Erving's name has been connected to the Chiefs throughout draft season. He has experience at both center and tackle and the Chiefs have a need at both positions. If you're comfortable with the player, the pick can make sense. Detractors would say that the 18th overall pick is too high for a center, and that's a legit argument. It is really high for a center. McShay argues that his versatility as a tackle makes him a more appealing option in the mid first round. We do know that Andy Reid likes taking big men in the first round so we shall see.

Perriman's name is somewhat new to the Chiefs draft rumors. Kiper first connected him to KC a few weeks back as Perriman's stock seemed to rise quickly. He's not from one of the traditional power house schools but he is now a regular in the first round of mock drafts. Someone obviously thinks he's going high in this draft. The three picks after Perriman in Kiper's mock all seem like options for the Chiefs: WR Nelson Agholor, CB Byron Jones and OT Andrus Peat.

Here we sit two days out and the top mock drafters have the Chiefs going with Erving or Perriman. History says they're both probably going to be wrong.
