Kansas City Chiefs mock draft: What rookies could join Xavier Worthy in Rounds 2-7?

Who is a WORTHY Day 2 selection?

The Kansas City Chiefs have already made their first selection in the 2024 NFL Draft in Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy. However, there are still lots of draft picks to be made with six picks in the next six rounds.

Let’s take a look at how the rest of the draft could play out for the Chiefs. It’s worth noting the Chiefs are missing some picks due to their trade with the Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs now have the following selections available to them:

  • Round 2 – No. 64
  • Round 4 – No. 131
  • Round 4 – No. 133
  • Round 5 – No. 159
  • Round 5 – No. 173
  • Round 7 – No. 248

With lots of great remaining talent on the board, let’s see what the Chiefs can get done.

BYU v Texas

Round 2, Pick 64: Kiran Amegadjie, OT, Yale

Kiran Armegadjie has unteachable size and athleticism at the left tackle position. At 6’5″ 323 lbs. with over 36-inch arms, Amegadjie moves well out in space.

Armegadjie’s raw traits are partly due to his ability to just flat-out dominate at his level of competition. Against almost every player he faced, he was able to just rely on strength and length. With desired size and athleticism combined with three years at left tackle, he’s an ideal fit for the Chiefs

We saw the tackle position get drafted heavily in round 1 with 8 off the board. The Chiefs likely could’ve stayed and taken Kingsley Suamataia at 32 but they felt strongly about Xavier Worthy. Now, they get another toolsy project tackle in round 2, which frankly is what Tyler Guyton or Suamataia would’ve been in round 1.

Round 4, Pick 131: Mekhi Wingo, IDL, LSU

A local recruit from St. Louis, Mekhi Wingo was originally with Missouri until transferring to LSU.

At LSU, Wingo wore the prestigious number 18 and was a force along the defensive line. He has an explosive first step and is a rare athlete along the defensive interior. Though undersized, he does a nice job of slipping blocks in the run game. Right now, he’s an athlete who has traits but needs to learn more about pass rushing with a plan.

Wingo is a solid bet to improve the interior of the defensive line. The Chiefs have been committed to improving that position all off-season by adding several bodies up front. Wingo brings something they currently don’t have. He might not turn into the run stuffer that Derrick Nnadi or Mike Pennel are but he can help bring more pass rush to the table.

Round 4, Pick 133: Will Shipley, RB, Clemson

An impact player on special teams, Clemson running back Will Shipley makes sense for the Chiefs as a former 5-star recruit and a player who was voted team captain by his peers.

Explosive and shifty, Shipley is at his best outside the tackles or catching the ball. He is one of the quicker backs in the class and has above-average lateral agility. Contact balance is a concern as he often goes down on first contact, and he doesn’t have top-end speed. He’s also too slightly built to be an every-down back.

It will be surprising if the Chiefs do not select a running back in this draft. The Chiefs should target a passing down back who can bring more to their outside zone run game and pass-catching. Shipley fits the bill here and continues to raise the dynamism of the offense as a whole.

Round 5, Pick 159: Zak Zinter, IOL, Michigan

Zak Zinter was the leader of one of the best offensive lines in college football. He is a large guard at 6’5″ with tackle-like arms at 33.5 inches. He moves well in space and was a featured part of the Michigan run game.

Zinter suffered a broken ankle late in the year that sidelined him for the college football playoff but he is recovered and will be ready for camp. He’s not the most explosive guard as he is an average athlete but Zinter uses his frame well.

The Chiefs come away here with an interior offensive line prospect who can at least be similar to Nick Allegretti. At 6’5″, Zinter might not be able to mix in at center but he can at least play both guard spots and possibly even replace Joe Thuney or Trey Smith in 2025. The Chiefs can’t wait until next year to think about some competition for that upcoming need.

Round 5, Pick 173: Kalen King, CB. Penn State

Around Thanksgiving, it was not uncommon to see Kalen King mocked in the top half of round 1. A former top recruit, King is coming off a less successful 2023 than 2022.

In 2022, he broke up 18 passes, intercepted three, and forced a fumble. 2023 was different for King, as he struggled against bigger receivers (particularly Marvin Harrison Jr.) and with ball production as well. There are also some agility concerns with King but he’s a smart corner who has produced.

With King, you just bet on the 2022 film and hope you can help him. He was an impact special teams player for the Nittany Lions which is always valuable on day 3. He can mix into a deep corner battle up in St. Joseph come summer while also providing some help for Dave Toub.

Round 7, Pick 248: Delmar Glaze, OL, Maryland

Delmar Glaze is a tackle prospect who could kick inside or play tackle in a pinch. He’s a powerful run blocker who has a mean streak in the run game. He has a nice first step for a tackle and would benefit from playing guard where his lack of athleticism wouldn’t make him so vulnerable. He’s played both left and right tackle for the Terps.

In the seventh round, you’re just throwing darts, so here, the Chiefs take a project tackle who could maybe be a swing tackle or guard. Between Glaze and Wanya Morris, you’d have plenty of flexibility at right tackle after the Jawaan Taylor deal is complete. This is a Chiefs’ bet on experience and versatility.
