The OFFICIAL Arrowhead Pride Mock Draft Thread, 4/10-4/16

Hey there guys! The draft is getting ever closer, I turn 23 on Tuesday (yay for hearing Blink-182 references) and my schoolwork is probably going to kill me before too long. Let's hop into the draft talk, shall we?

Round 1, Pick 27 - Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU

High character guy with ball skills and tremendous athletic ability. While a little bit shorter than Dorsey likes his corners, White is a quick-twitch athlete with great instincts and a natural talent for the position. Has the skills to defend the ball at a rate similar to Marcus Peters, and should get plenty of opportunities at CB2.

Round 1, Pick 32 - Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

Oh yeah baby, we made a trade, swapping our 2nd rounder and our second 3rd rounder for the #32 pick. While that's a steep price, it's similar to the trade that the Vikings made for Bridgewater a few years ago, so I think it's a fair idea. Pat Mahomes is everyone around here's favorite QB with a cannon for an arm and an improvisational style that reminds me of the best of Brett Favre and Tony Romo. He's very raw, and would need a year to develop before I would be comfortable with him starting, but has potential to be a long-term solution for the Chiefs that can fully take advantage of our playmakers like Travis Kelce, Jeremy Maclin, and Tyreek Hill.

Round 3, Pick 91 - Alex Anzalone, OLB, Florida

Anzalone has the talent of an earlier pick, but hasn't stayed healthy for the Gators, suffering a broken arm in 2016 and injuring his shoulder in 2015. However, I think that he's young enough and talented enough to throw a dart at a pass-rusher in this position. Has ideal size, speed, and overall athleticism for the position, and could push Dee Ford for playing time.

Round 4, Pick 132 - Connor Harris, ILB, Lindenwood

Talk about a small school guy. Harris didn't get many offers from D1 schools, only from Kansas I believe, but committed to play for Lindenwood and absolutely racked up the tackles. Good field vision, leadership skills, and a nose for finding the football and bringing down whoever has it. Reminded me of Chris Borland in a smaller guy who becomes a man among boys in the middle.

Round 5, Pick 170 - Elijiah McGuire, RB, UL Lafayette

A foot injury dropped his stock this year, but McGuire has the traits that I would like in a mid-round RB. Athletic and well-sized, McGuire could use some coaching up, but should be able to produce well behind our OL, and is a threat to hit a home run at any time. Good pass-catcher that runs routes well.

Round 5, Pick 180 - Jonnu Smith, TE, Florida International

Athletic with the ability to dominate in the middle of the field, Smith doesn't have elite speed but is incredibly dynamic on the field, creating space with loose hips and good routes. Strong and willing blocker, should be a good complement to Kelce in the middle of the field.

Round 6, Pick 216 - Josh Dobbs, QB, Tennessee

Probably won't win "NFL's Most Handsome QB" award, but I'm a chubby guy who writes blog posts about the Chiefs so I don't have room to talk. Incredibly smart, majoring in aerospace engineering, and athletic for a QB, rushing for nearly 900 yards and 12 TDs as a junior. Wonky mechanics pushed him down draft boards, but seems ideal as a long-term backup that can learn the system quickly and execute it well enough to succeed. Excellent value here.

Round 6, Pick 218 - Robert Davis, WR, Georgia State

The successor to Albert Wilson at Georgia State, Davis played like a man on fire, dominating the competition in a way that you're excited to see. Excellent athlete that owns nearly every record in his school's books. Explosive off the line and a good route-runner, could be a sleeper guy to pick up a neat role in the offense by the end of the year.

Round 7, Pick 245 - Kenny Allen, P, Michigan
