Way-too-early Kansas City Chiefs 2025 NFL mock draft roundup

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2025 NFL Draft, we will update our Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Kansas City Chiefs from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Chiefs:

Fox Sports - Rob Rang (5/3)

31. Quinshon Judkins, RB, Ohio State

A transfer from Ole Miss, where Judkins was the first running back from the SEC to score 15+ touchdowns in each of his first two seasons since the legendary Herschel Walker (Georgia), the six-foot, 219-pound Judkins is a greasy runner who accelerates smoothly and slithers his way through arm tackles.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (5/2)

31. Kenneth Grant, IDL, Michigan

Kansas City is really good at developing draft picks on defense, and Grant can make an impact up the middle with spurts of disruption. He can not only clog interior gaps but also quickly penetrate to make plays with his combination of power and quickness out of his stance. Grant had eight run stops and 6.5 tackles for loss last season.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (5/2)

32. Jack Sawyer, EDGE, Ohio State

Much like Patrick Mahomes on offense, the Chiefs need to constantly replenish Chris Jones' supporting cast on defense. According to Pro Football Focus, Sawyer was the only edge defender in the FBS to earn 85-plus grades as a pass rusher and run defender in 2023.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (4/30)

32. Tyler Booker, IOL, Alabama

Arguably the most talented prospect from the Nick Saban era to stay in Tuscaloosa for the 2024 season, Booker is a massive blocker with the tools to be an NFL starter.

PFF - Max Chadwick (4/29)

32. Mitchell Evans, TE, Notre Dame

The Chiefs select the heir apparent to Travis Kelce. Evans was dominant in South Bend last season before tearing his ACL, posting an 83.7 receiving grade. If he recovers well from his injury, he could compete with Colston Loveland to be the first tight end off the board.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (4/29)

31. Howard Cross III, IDL, Notre Dame

Chris Jones is in his 30s, and the Kansas City Chiefs could use some more interior defensive line help. Howard Cross is a much different type of defensive tackle than Jones. He has a smaller frame and is only 280 pounds. However, he's been productive for several years at Notre Dame and could push himself into the later stages of Round 1 with a solid senior season.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (4/28)

30. Tyler Booker, IOL, Alabama

It might not be long before the two-time depending champions embrace a shift on the interior as they sort out the financial futures of guards Joe Thuney and Trey Smith and center Creed Humphrey, with the latter two set to enter the final year of their contracts. The massively powerful Booker could step in to fill a hole at guard while creating some of his own in the run game.

CBS Sports - Ryan Wilson (4/28)

31. Nazir Stackhouse, IDL, Georgia

Stackhouse is stout at the point and plays with both length and power. He'll flash some explosiveness and consistently wins by collapsing the pocket.
