Todd McShay's post-Super Bowl 2016 NFL mock draft had the Kansas City Chiefs selecting a safety. His latest mock, which includes two rounds, should be a lot more popular with KC Chiefs fans. McShay's two-round mock sends Houston CB William Jackson III to the Chiefs with the 28th pick and Ohio State WR Braxton Miller to the Chiefs with the 59th pick.

We just mentioned Jackson recently because Chiefs director of football operations Chris Ballard is present at Houston's pro day where Jackson is working out. He is expected to be a late first round pick and has been getting plenty of praise from the draft community. He has the height (6'0) that the Chiefs like but could put on a little weight (listed at 189 pounds) for the press coverage that the Chiefs sometimes run. This would be a solid pick for the Chiefs.

Miller is also a familiar candidate for the Chiefs as it's been rumored the Chiefs like him in the second round. He could be pushing the first round so I'm not sure he's there with the 59th pick but it would be a solid value pick for the Chiefs if he was. The Chiefs don't have a glaring need for a receiver with the addition of Rod Streater along with Jeremy Maclin, Chris Conley and Albert Wilson. But they're also not really in a position where they can say they're set there. Improvement is always needed, especially with someone like Miller who can operate in small spaces. The bottom line with Miller for me is that the Chiefs need playmakers and he is a playmaker. The rest can figure itself out.

The Chiefs do not have a third round pick due to Roger Goodell sneaking into the Chiefs bedroom in the middle of the night and stealing it from them so it's very important that they nail these first two picks. Chiefs GM John Dorsey has been pretty good hitting on picks in the first three rounds in his time in KC.
