On Tuesday, CBS Sports writer Pete Prisco released his latest mock draft of the 2023 offseason.
In this mock, Prisco projects that an SEC EDGE will go to the Chiefs in the first round.
31. Kansas City Chiefs: EDGE Nolan Smith, Georgia
They lost Frank Clark in free agency, and in their scheme they need a player who can go along with George Karlaftis and Charles Omenihu up front. Smith is an explosive player who can help as a situational rusher in year one.
This is Prisco’s latest mock draft of the offsseason. In the first one — back on March 21 — he called for the Chiefs to take Michigan defensive tackle Mazi Smith.
Prisco joins many other analysts who continue to project pass rushers to Kansas City. By more than a 2-to-1 margin, it is the position most commonly mocked to the Chiefs.
In mocks published before free agency began, Smith was the EDGE sent to Kansas City most regularly — but since then, Kansas State’s Felix Anudike-Uzomah has easily led all others. In all the mocks Arrowhead Pride has covered this season, the former Wildcat has now registered the most selections.
