Kansas City Chiefs trade target No. 3: Kindle Vildor, Slot corner
While Robert Quinn is coming off of a huge season for the Bears, Kindle Vildor is coming off of a very tough year in which he was benched.
The Kansas City Chiefs need some additional help in the secondary, particularly out of the slot if both Mike Hughes and Charvarious Ward leave in free agency, and Vildor could be a low-risk, high-reward type of option.
I really liked Vildor coming out of the 2020 NFL Draft class. He’s a scrappy nickel corner with really good athleticism and ball skills.
He will get beat because he’s very aggressive, but there are plenty of tools here worth developing.
Again, this is just the kind of move we’ve come to expect from the Kansas City Chiefs. They made the trade for Mike Hughes last year. They have made a variety of moves at a variety of positions to bring in guys who might be considered draft busts or close to that from other teams and found a way to make them fit in their systems.
There are probably some better options out of the slot for them to consider in 2022, but with the connections between these two front offices and the Chiefs’ need for cornerback help/depth, I could see this trade working out for a day three pick.
