Chiefs load up on more speed in 2022 NFL mock draft
30. Kansas City Chiefs: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State
The overtime giveth and the overtime taketh. For two weeks in a row, the Kansas City Chiefs hit a field goal at the end of regulation to force overtime, and for the second week in a row, they won the coin toss to start with the ball. In the Divisional Round, they marched right down the field and scored a touchdown to win it all. However, things were different this weekend.
Patrick Mahomes nearly threw a pick-six but it was dropped by Eli Apple. Then on the next pass, Jessie Bates tipped a deep pass that was intercepted by Vonn Bell. Cincinnati then took it downfield and won it on an Evan McPherson field goal.
The loss ends a two-year run as the AFC Champions and the Chiefs also have to do some soul-searching. They still have one of the best, if not the best, quarterbacks in the game today and their defense has been improving. However, they need another game-breaker at wide receiver. This was shown when the Bengals slowed down Tyreek Hill and help them to just three points in the second half.
Kansas City lands that playmaker here as they select Jahan Dotson from Penn State. Similar in stature to Hill, Dotson stands 5-foot-11 and 184-pounds and is a big play waiting to happen. He racked up 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns this season and could make this offense unstoppable.
