[5:35 p.m.] The rumor is that there will be a run on receivers early on Day 2. George Pickens is by far the most talented of the available. I’m super interested to see how much his injury or bad-interview concerns could make him slide with his talent (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[5:44 p.m.] I am very high on both Arnold Ebiketie and David Ojabo as edge rushers that can be legitimate threats on passing downs, double-digit sack potential. Complementing Karlaftis with either of those guys would be a dream — even if Ojabo’s impact won’t start until 2023 (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[5:52 p.m.] There are also some intriguing defensive backs on the board. Baylor safety Jalen Pitre has drawn Honey Badger comparisons. On the flip side, if they like a cornerback on the board, could McDuffie be more of a safety? I think so (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[5:59 p.m.] I predict Tampa goes Logan Hall here, bolster the defensive line that lost Jason Pierre-Paul this offseason (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[5:59 p.m] What’s up everyone! Let’s roll! Louis Riddick thinks the Chiefs may go up for a WR, and when he speaks Chiefs, we listen… (Bryan Stewart)

[6:04 p.m] Specifically keeps mentioning Baltimore as a team they may wanna leap.. would likely be for Watson, Moore, Pierce, or Pickens (Bryan Stewart)

[6:07 p.m.] Chiefs’ interest in Marquise Brown might indicate the type of receiver they want. Calvin Austin III, Wan’Dale Robinson? Would rather the previous four names Bryan mentioned (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:10 p.m] Night 2 is upon us! Stoked to see who else becomes Chiefs tonight! (Talon Graff)

[6:12 p.m.] Who do the commenters think will be the next great 2nd round WR like AJ Brown, DK Metcalf, and Deebo Samuel were? The Chiefs need that guy. (Bryan Stewart)

[6:17 p.m.] Logan Hall is someone I wasn’t excited about as a Chiefs’ draft pick. Feels like a bad scheme fit. Tampa’s a good place for him (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:17 p.m] Logan Hall goes to Tampa, I think he would be a great 5T but I am sure playing beside Vita Vea will help out quite a bit for Hall, great landing spot. (Talon Graff)

[6:19 p.m.] Packers taking Christian Watson. First WR off the board, and he’s one with big upside. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:20 p.m] Rodgers finally getting a weapon! Watson has huge upside but No. 12 demands and expects a lot. (Talon Graff)

[6:20 p.m.] Not my favorite WR left by any means entering tonight. Chiefs still can get something better in my opinion. (Bryan Stewart)

[6:21 p.m] Another Chiefs target goes early in Round 2. Auburn CB Roger McCreary is the newest Tennessee Titan. A pair of young corners for Mike Vrabel’s defense now along with 2020 2nd rounder Kristian Fulton. (Talon Graff)

[6:24 p.m] Breece Hall first RB taken, Jets continue their hot draft. (Talon Graff)

[6:26 p.m] Houston takes Baylor Safety Jalen Pitre, Texans making some nice picks themselves so far. (Talon Graff)

[6:28 p.m.] Dang I really like Pitre. Could imagine him being such a fun piece for Spagnuolo to use in dime. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:30 p.m] Falcons trading up, could we see Malik Willis go? Kyle Pitts and Drake London need a young stud to throw them touchdowns. (Talon Graff)

[6:31 p.m] No QB for ATL, Ebiketie is off the board to the Falcons. That one stings a bit. (Talon Graff)

[6:32 p.m.] Ebiketie was the dream. I really think he could be a special edge rusher, even if he lacks in other areas of his game. It was probably never happening anyways (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:34 p.m.] He’ll probably be wasted in Atlanta. Sad. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:35 p.m] Things are heating up and guys are flying off the board. Ryan Poles takes Trent McDuffie’s teammate, CB Kyler Gordon. (Talon Graff)

[6:39 p.m.] It’s getting deeper and deeper in the 2nd round with only one wide receiver taken. Chiefs are within striking distance (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:43 p.m] Who is more worth the risk they bring, George Pickens or David Ojabo? (Talon Graff)

[6:45 p.m.] Seattle should take quarterback, sounds like they’re looking at Boye Mafe at 40 though (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:47 p.m] Man, I just do not love the fit for Mafe there. Seattle has not been developing players well on the defensive line lately. (Bryan Stewart)

[6:49 p.m.] Of course Seattle picked a RB again high when they need a quarterback. Facepalm. (Bryan Stewart)

[6:50 p.m] Seahawks might regret not going QB in the long run but Lock could get another shot. Boye Mafe and Kenneth Walker are good football players. (Talon Graff)

[6:53 p.m.] Minnesota moves up to 42. There are way too many trades in this draft. My head hurts. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[6:55 p.m] Lewis Cine and Andrew Booth for the Vikings, if both hit their potential, that is a scary secondary. (Talon Graff)

[6:59 p.m.] Giants are selecting Wan’Dale Robinsin, the receiver from Kentucky. Could indicate a move coming to deal Kadarius Toney (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[7:01 p.m.] Robinson is pretty electric. I could see him being a fun player in the league, Giants are not the best place for it to happen unfortunately. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[7:03 p.m] John Metchie was one of my EARLY favorites but tore his ACL, Texans might have the steal of Round 2. (Talon Graff)

[7:03 p.m.] Metchie being gone stinks. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:09 p.m] This one is a gut wrencher, David Ojabo to the Ravens, ouch. (Talon Graff)

[7:09 p.m.] Ojabo and Oweh in the future is going to be dynamic. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:11 p.m.] With Ojabo and Metchie gone, the Chiefs’ next pick should be a healthy body entering training camp. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:12 p.m.] Paschal was a favorite of Talon’s — but unlikely for Kansas City after taking Karlaftis last night. Wide receiver board looks solid still @ 50. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:16 p.m] Paschal is a stud, after Karlaftis pick he wasn’t going to be a Chief, he’s paired with Aidan Hutchinson, that’s a tough duo. (Talon Graff)

[7:18 p.m.] Washington sure does love them their Alabama defensive tackles. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:22 p.m.] Brisker is a really solid pickup. Chiefs still have great options at 50. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:29 p.m.] That feels pretty rich for Taylor, but it is a premium position that has gotten thin. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:31 p.m.] If the Chiefs didn’t want to stay put there, they aren’t terribly in love with any player left. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:39 p.m.] Great trade from the Chiefs’ perspective. Add another pick to just move backj four spots. (Bryan Stewart)

[7:52 p.m.] Skyy Moore is the newest Chiefs’ receiver. Great complementary piece to MVS and Juju. Slot and Z that has good change of direction (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[7:58 p.m] Skyy Moore seems to be a really popular pick, I have to be honest I am not that thrilled but if he can succeed it’ll be with Kansas City. (Talon Graff)

[7:58 p.m.] Skyy Moore was a really fun player to write about and I didn’t expect him to last until #54. (Jared Sapp)

[8:20 p.m.] Chiefs go with another really good defensive back in this draft. Cincinnati’s Bryan Cook will be a strong safety and a reliable box presence. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[8:25 p.m] Love this pick! Bryan Cook is a physical dude who can be a force for Spags. (Talon Graff)

[8:27 p.m.] The Chiefs secondary will be one of the best in the league by the end of the season. (Jared Sapp)

[8:35 p.m] Brian Asomoah going before Nakobe Dean is not something I would’ve predicted at all. (Talon Graff)

[8:41 p.m] One of Ron Kopp’s favorites, Martin Emerson joins the Cleveland Browns, solid corner with a bright future. (Talon Graff)

[8:46 p.m.] Head is spinning trying to get everything done, but I need to get my Bryan Cook takes off here. I really like the complementary styles that Reid and Cook have. A true free safety / strong safety duo. That’s the long-term duo, but in 2022, they have a very fun three-safety set to work with. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[8:49 p.m] Velus Jones was someone I mentioned as one who could boost his stock with a solid combine performance. He just went pick 71, that’s a huge boost from where he was slated early in the process. (Talon Graff)

[8:55 p.m.] Falcons take Desmond Ridder, my QB1. I really think he’s the guy who can come in and win right away if he has a team around him capable of it. Falcons aren’t that, but I still think Ridder could be a competent starter once they’re ready for it. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[9:01 p.m.] Bring me Nakobe Dean. Dean and Cook as the Niemann and Sorensen replacements would be amazing. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[9:02 p.m] The Houston Texans have been sneakily savvy so far. Hats off to them. (Talon Graff)

[9:03 p.m] Baltimore is going to have an absolute lights out defense in 2024. They just got Travis Jones, STEAL at pick 76. (Talon Graff)

[9:10 p.m] The Colts waiting game pays off and they add their LT with Bernard Raimann. Another Ron Kopp crush is off the board. (Talon Graff)

[9:11 p.m.] Alex Wright was a Spags Edge possibility. Huge dude with experience at the three-technique position. Browns took him (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[9:19 p.m] AFC West rival Denver Broncos take UCLA TE Greg Dulcich. That is a great move to replace the Noah Fant production. (Talon Graff)

[9:22 p.m.] Falcons going DeAngelo Malone, an intriguing edge prospect that played wide receiver up until his junior year of high school. He’s got the juice (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[9:27 p.m.] Eagles stop the slide of the best player on my board: Nakobe Dean. When he’s healthy, he’s the best pure linebacker in this class to me. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[9:33 p.m] Malik Willis to the Titans was not on my bingo card. The tumble is no more. (Talon Graff)

[9:41 p.m.] Skins on the wall mean everything. There’s some questioning Bill, but how over the top would the reaction be if the Raiders had made the Patriots picks? (Jared Sapp)

[9:49 p.m.] White has a lot of receiving ability at a good size. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[9:50 p.m] Rachaad White was on my shortlist of bucket list prospects. Local kid with big talent. He’s been slept on too long. (Talon Graff)

[9:58 p.m.] Missed Jalen Tolbert going to the Cowboys. That’s a great start to getting past Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson Jr. (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[10:02 p.m] Matt Corral to Carolina. Don’t love the kid’s chances because another bad season and it’ll be a new coaching staff. (Bryan Stewart)

[10:07 p.m.] Colts taking Nick Cross, a similarly-thought of safety as Cook in terms of where he would be drafted. Different players though. I like the Chiefs choosing Cook (Ron Kopp Jr.)

[9:50 p.m] What are we thinking Chiefs fans? I’ve got my eyes on Winfrey and Calvin Austin, although I wonder why Winfrey has fallen this far. (Bryan Stewart)

[10:36 p.m] Chiefs go with linebacker, good value in Round 3 here with Wisconsin’s Leo Chenal. A great run stuffer who can be the third LB in base. (Talon Graff)

[10:43 p.m] This has been one of the more intriguing drafts in a while. I feel like plenty of teams are hitting on needs. Only a couple ‘out there’ hauls. (Talon Graff)
