How can the Kansas City Chiefs improve their stock of talent in the 2019 NFL Draft? This 7-round NFL mock draft tries to answer that.

As things stand now, the Kansas City Chiefs may be the favorites to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl next season. Led by reigning league MVP Patrick Mahomes and a loaded overall offensive unit, Kansas City is likely to repeat as the top offense in the NFL. Their defense is inconsistent, but there is some legitimate talent on that side of the ball as well.

Simply put, the Chiefs are obvious competitors next season and need to take advantage of their current opportunity for success. As talented as the Chiefs are, they have obvious holes on the roster that simply must be addressed. In particular, defensive end, defensive back, linebacker and secondary offensive playmakers stand out as needs for this team.

Luckily, they have plenty of draft capital to fill these positional needs.

The Chiefs hold eight overall picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, including their own picks in the first three rounds and an extra second round pick that they received from the Los Angeles Rams in the Marcus Peters trade. With four selections in the first 92 picks and four day three selection, the Chiefs have more than enough capital to improve their already impressive roster.

Today, we are going to step into the mind of general manager Brett Veach and complete an entire seven-round 2019 NFL mock draft for the Kansas City Chiefs. Based on team needs, best available talent and systematic fits, here is a realistic possible scenario for the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2019 NFL Draft.
