Heading into the draft I figured the Chiefs would look bpa or grab at anyone that could step up the pass rush. Instead they doubled down on the offensive line and reached for back ups at other positions.
LB Bolton is a decent prospect but doesn't exactly bring anything different or better than the guys ahead of him on the depth chart. OC Humphrey is a plug and play center but incumbent Blythe is one of the best lineman on the team.
DE Kainduh was a reach that I thought would be fortunate to be drafted. Skill guys TE Gray and WR Powell are interesting parts to add but neither project as future starting caliber guys imo. OG Smith was once a 1st round talent but injuries toppled his game. UDFA QB Buechele is a scrapper.

Slater's a plug and play LT that in most year's would've required a top ten pick to attain. CB Samuel Jr wasn't one of my favorites but is a solid get in the 2nd round. WR Palmer was an underrated prospect that has arguably the best size/short area quickness combo of this receiving class.
TE McKitty a potential steal. He's a complete TE that was underutilized at Georgia. DE Rumph was one of my favorite edge guys in this class. Forever punching up but won't breakout until he gets markedly stronger in his lower half. OL Jaimes and LB Niemann and S Webb fill key reserve needs.
RB Roundtree is a flier but felt like an unnecessary reach. UDFA LB Ogbongbemiga has a lot of upside and should get a good opportunity to stick.

Mayock and the Raiders made maby the most puzzling 1st round move with OT Leatherwood out of Alabama. Similar to their 19' pick DE Ferrell, most analysts didn't rate the prospect quite as high as the team did. Leatherwood is a top notch run blocker that flashes in pass pro and fills a hole but he's prone to ugly mistakes protecting the edge. Taking a RT top 20 is questionable in and of itself, but also one that has some issues in pass pro?
S Moehrig is a solid all around DB. He's an impressive open field tackler with the range and ball skills to man up receivers. DE Koonce was a late riser that shows up on film as a sudden, athletic edge guy that can finish.
S/LB Diablo has top tier athletic tools but never stood out at VTech. DB Gillispie is another top tier athlete that could be developed as a nickel.
CB Hobbs is a solid late flier. He's produced since his freshman season and has pro tools but has lacked reliability. OC Morrissey is a value pick as a guy that could eventually be a starter.

I thought CB Surtain was the best corner in this class and filled a major need. But RB Williams in the 2nd was nearly the exact opposite. Never mind that I thought the UNC runner was an overrated prospect, the Broncos were well equipped at RB and had substantial needs upfront on both sides of the ball. Williams is a solid power back that can contribute on 3rd downs but isn't an explosive playmaker.
OC Meinerz was a great get in the 3rd and should push Cushenberry or challenge for a start at OG. LB Browning is better outside than inside and could fill Miller's role if the vet isn't available for the season start.
DBs Stern, Johnson and Vincent are good value prospects and could push for early time at nickel, SS and CB respectively. WR Williams has size and sticky hands.
Seventh round DE's Cooper and Spencer are physical try hard pass rushers certainly worth a look late. Either one working out wouldn't be surprising. I'm a big fan of UDFA LB Curtis Robinson. He's in the mold of a Jordan Hicks but needs to anticipate and stick his nose in better.
