Kansas City Chiefs 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 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.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Kansas City Chiefs, check out our 2021 Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft Database.

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

Pro Football Network - DiCecco (6/7)
32) Kansas City Chiefs: Patrick Jones II, EDGE Pittsburgh

The reigning Super Bowl Champions have few needs to speak of, but land an ascending talent in Johnson. The Pitt standout exploded for 8.5 sacks and 12 tackles for loss last season and has a developing frame and skill set. In Kansas City, he should see the field as a rotational rusher almost immediately.

Fox Sports - McIntyre (6/7)
29. Kansas City Chiefs -- Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

With Patrick Mahomes angling for the richest contract in NFL history, the Chiefs will have to make some sacrifices. Probably at receiver. So they'll just draft another speed merchant.

Walter Football (5/19)
32. Kansas City Chiefs: LaBryan Ray, DT, Alabama

The Chiefs could add someone to help provide more interior disruption. LaBryan Ray flashed a bit alongside Quinnen Williams and now has a larger role on Alabama.

CBS Sports - Edwards (5/12)
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Deonte Brown, OL, Alabama

The Chiefs continue to turn over their offensive line. Brown is a strong player who should create some wide open running lanes for Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

CBS Sports - Trapasso (5/4)
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Creed Humphrey, OL, Oklahoma

This is likely to be a major need for the Chiefs in 2021, and Humphrey looked the part even as a freshman in 2018.

PFF - Renner (4/30)
32. Kansas City Chiefs -- WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC

St. Brown got lost in the shuffle of a loaded USC receiving corps last season, but he was arguably the most complete of the bunch. At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, he's a talented route-runner who can win at all levels of the field. He broke 18 tackles on 77 catches, and after a slow start, he averaged over 100 yards a game over his final eight games.

San Diego Union Tribune (4/29)
32. Kansas City (6/1) -- Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

Sammy Watkins is likely gone after next season. Moore's speed and play-making ability would fit in quite nicely. Injuries limited him to just four games in 2019, but he returns a dark-horse Heisman candidate.

SI - Hanson (4/27)
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Jay Tufele, IDL, USC

The Chiefs used their franchise tag on Chris Jones and many 2020 mock drafts projected Ross Blacklock to Kansas City as a potential long-term replacement. Whether Jones is on the roster in 2021 or beyond, adding a disruptive interior pass-rusher like Tufele, who's extremely athletic for his 315-pound frame, makes sense if he's available at the end of Round 1.

Bleacher Report - Miller (4/27)
32. Kansas City Chiefs -- WR Chris Olave, Ohio State

The rich get richer as the Kansas City Chiefs select a wide receiver to replace Sammy Watkins and pair with Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman at the end of Round 1.

Chris Olave is ready to break out now that he isn't in the shadow of K.J. Hill and Austin Mack, senior receivers on last year's Ohio State roster. His size (6'1", 188 lbs) and route running are eerily similar to Justin Jefferson's tape. That was good enough to make the LSU star the No. 22 overall pick in the 2020 draft class. If Olave plays as expected this season, he might be long gone by the time the Chiefs are on the clock.

SB Nation - Kadar (4/27)
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Jaylen Twyman, DL, Pittsburgh

If things between the Chiefs and Chris Jones fall apart, it will be imperative to find his replacement. Twyman had 10.5 sacks from his defensive tackle spot last year, just 0.5 sack shy of Aaron Donald's single-season high at Pitt.

The Athletic - Brugler (4/27)
32. Kansas City Chiefs -- *Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami (Fla.)

The third tight end to make this mock, Jordan is oozing with potential and has athletic gifts for his size. With Travis Kelce turning 31 next season, Jordan could be worth developing for a year or two until he is ready to be the starter.
