Kansas City Chiefs 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 5.0

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: - Zierlein (2/4)

32. Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern

Adept in press-man and zone coverages, Newsome is a long outside corner. He has the ability to tilt contested catches in his favor on both short and deep passes. - Brooks (2/1)

32. Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida

Andy Reid loves having a 4x100 meter relay team on the perimeter. Toney would step in to replace pending free agent Sammy Watkins opposite Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman in the lineup.

Akron Beacon Journal - Kadar (2/1)

32. Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville

The Chiefs -- my pick to win the Super Bowl -- will go into the offseason with wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson entering free agency. If the Chiefs wants to fill that possible hole cheaply, they could use the last pick of the first round on the speedy Atwell. Sure, they already have speed wide outs with Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman. The latter just hasn't developed as the Chiefs expected. He hasn't had 600 yards receiving in his first two years in the NFL and may just end up being more of a special teams player. Atwell is a small player at 5'9 and 165 pounds. But the Chiefs know how to use a receiver's speed better than any team in the NFL.

The Ringer - Kelly (1/31)

32. Levi Onwuzurike, IDL, Washington

The Chiefs have leaned on a collection of long, athletic, and versatile defensive linemen over the past few seasons and would add to that group here by grabbing Onwuzurike. Boasting a combination of first-step burst and incredible power, the Huskies star could wreak some havoc lined up on the Kansas City defensive line, next to the likes of Chris Jones and Frank Clark, among others.

USA Today - Davis (1/28)

32. Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville

Imagine having DeSean Jackson and Tyreek Hill on the field together ... and with Kelce working underneath. That would basically be the dynamic supremely swift Atwell, listed at 5-9 and 165 pounds, could add to an offense in which he'd only have to beat single coverage. An all-ACC selection in 2019 when he led the conference with 1,272 receiving yards, Atwell would be more than a luxury to K.C., which stands to lose WRs Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson in free agency.

ESPN - Kiper (1/26)

32. Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

Six sacks for Frank Clark. Three for Alex Okafor. One for Tanoh Kpassagnon. The Chiefs went 14-2 without much of a pass rush from the outside (Chris Jones is still a dominant interior rusher). Ojulari capped his Georgia career with three sacks in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and had 8.5 on the season. He also forced four fumbles. At 6-3, 240 pounds, he might be a better fit for a 3-4 defense, but he can get after quarterbacks with the best of them in this class. And a smart defensive coordinator will move him around on defense and let him loose. - Jeremiah (1/22)

32. Levi Onwuzurike, IDL, Washington

The Chiefs have the luxury of simply taking the best available player on their board. I believe Onwuzurike is the best interior defensive lineman in this draft class.

Baltimore Sun - Doon (1/22)

32. Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

It doesn't seem as if Kansas City is going to play it safe as long as Patrick Mahomes is quarterback. That might mean taking a swing on Moore, who has struggled with injuries throughout his career but has been a dynamic playmaker when healthy. If he can regain some of his freshman form, when he led all receivers in broken tackles, he could be a capable replacement for soon-to-be free agents Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson.
