With one day left before the 2020 NFL Draft, it is time for my final FPC Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft. This is my third different mock, with plenty of different players being selected. We also conducted a couple of trades here and there, too. Of course, we want our mock drafts to be as realistic as possible.
That means there is a trade in this mock draft. I believe the Chiefs will make six picks minimum, in the 2020 NFL Draft. So without further ado, let’s kick this mock draft off.
- 2021 Chiefs Draft Prospect: Dylan Moses
- Anthony Sherman: “On To The Next Chapter”
- This Or That: Derrick Johnson Or Tamba Hali?
- 2021 Chiefs Draft Prospect: Wyatt Davis
- 2021 Chiefs Draft Prospect: Dyami Brown
Here is the trade I made:
Chiefs receive: 3rd round pick (85th overall), 5th round pick (166th overall) and 2021 3rd round pick
Detroit Lions receive 2nd round pick (63rd overall)
1st Round-32nd Overall
Cornerback, Kristian Fulton, LSU
I do not completely understand it, but it seems like Kristian Fulton‘s stock continues to drop. Based off of who was still on the board, it made sense to stay at 32 overall and make this selection. Fulton is one of the better cover guys in this cornerback class. There’s multiple ways to use him in either man coverage or in cover 3. He may need to develop a better sense of turning around for the football. But, Fulton would command a good sense of freedom in the Chiefs defense, while having the ability to hunt receivers and the football.
3rd Round-85th Overall (via Detroit)
Linebacker, Logan Wilson, Wyoming
I continue to pound the table for Wyoming linebacker Logan Wilson. His instincts and prowess in zone coverage are the high points that stick out in his game. Meanwhile, effort and active hands lead to many plays where he is able to disengage off of blocks. While his attributes are all worthy of getting some early reps with the Chiefs, his versatility will also help. You can play him on the weak or strong side. Wilson is sharp and his underrated speed and range could allow him plenty of opportunities in sub packages.
3rd Round-96th Overall
Running Back, Zack Moss, Utah
I do not think KC should draft a running back early. However, Zack Moss is pretty good value here at the end of the third round. He would fit in the zone running system like the Chiefs. He has ample patience with incredible field vision. His cutting ability and the angles he takes, gives many second level defenders trouble. Overall, you can get caught off guard with his runs to the outside or around the edge. In his Chiefs draft prospect profile, I mentioned how he somewhat reminds of former Kansas City back Kareem Hunt. Moss would also be a fit as a pass catcher.
4th Round-138th Overall
Interior Offensive Lineman, John Simpson, Clemson
John Simpson is an offensive lineman who’s stock appears to be rising a little bit. His power and strong lower half could likely open the eyes of someone like Andy Reid and Brett Veach. I will say the athleticism, agility and flexibility are a bit of a question. Yet, in a gap and power system like Kansas City’s, that will allow Simpson an ability to cheat a bit. The Chiefs will have a lot of options at offensive line in this spot. Simpson would provide a little bit of a different dynamic for the Chiefs.
5th Round-166th Overall (via Detroit)
EDGE Defender, Jonathan Garvin, Miami
Miami Hurricanes edge defender Jonathan Garvin is not getting talked about nearly enough. As a pass rusher, he displays a wicked first step, explosiveness and plus length. Garvin is very smooth on the football field. Watching him work blockers to set the edge is the underrated part of his game. Finally, Garvin has impressive closing speed and hunts opponents down from behind. He can take time to develop, before playing on the opposite of Frank Clark. The Chiefs rotate their defensive linemen a good amount.
5th Round-177th Overall
Cornerback, Kindle Vildor, Georgia Southern
Kindle Vildor is a smaller defender at cornerback. You would not realize it, though. He plays with a tough, hard-nosed physical nature. In coverage, Vildor sticks out when attacking downhill. He has the body control and patience that is needed at the position. Moreover, his click and close ability against routes are smooth. Vildor has just as good of transitions as the aforementioned Fulton, who we took at the end of the first round.
