Cincy Jungle Writer's Mock Draft: Kansas City Chiefs on the clock

Who will the Chiefs nab to help them end their playoff-win drought?


The latest edition of the Cincy Jungle Writer's Mock Draft is here. Be sure to keep up with all of the picks in a out stream page.

Next up are the Kansas City Chiefs, who haven't won a playoff game in 20 years after another first-round exit this past season.

Jason: Chiefs take Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

The Chiefs have a huge problem at wide receiver with Dwayne Bowe being the only reliable target. After him, it's AJ Jenkins, Donnie Avery, Junior Hemingway and Kyle Williams....

Brandin Cooks comes in and instantly earns a starting spot and immediately gives the Chiefs a game-breaker to compliment Jamaal Charles.

Cooks won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver in 2013, when he established Pac-12 single-season records with 128 receptions and 1,730 receiving yards, which led the FBS. He also caught 16 touchdowns.

Anthony: Chiefs take Cyrus Kouandijo, OT, Alabama

If the draft fell this way, it's likely that the Chiefs would be upset that Su'a-Filo is off of the board. The Chiefs lost a small handful of offensive linemen in free agency, including Pro Bowler Branden Albert, so maintaining an awesome running attack and keeping Alex Smith upright is of utmost importance.

Yes, they spent a No.1 overall pick in Eric Fisher last year, but grabbing another bookend tackle would be a good bet. Fisher and Kouandijo can play both the left and right side, so they can figure out the best fit with these two--likely Fisher moving over to the left and Kouandijo on the right.

Mickey: Cheifs take Marqise Lee, WR, USC

The Chiefs boast one of the better defenses in the AFC and will look to improve their offense. This could start with a 6' speedy wide receiver in Lee. Line him up opposite of Dwayne Bowe and the Chiefs have legitimate threats on both sides of the field. In 2012 Lee had 118 catches and 14 touchdowns. He will make a big difference for the Chiefs offense.
