4. Jaylon Johnson comes to the Chiefs by way of Chicago

Kansas City is already one of the better pass defenses in the league, checking in at no. 6 overall. But, their outside corners have been nothing spectacular. L'Jarius Sneed and Joshua Williams have been fine, with Sneed struggling a little bit more than Williams at times. If the Chiefs wanted to make a surprise and splash move at cornerback, they could go after Chicago Bears veteran Jaylon Johnson.

Johnson is currently the no. 2 overall graded cornerback in football, according to Pro Football Focus. When it comes to coverage, there is no one better, as Johnson has a grade of 88.1. He has allowed a reception on just 43 percent of targets and holds an opposing quarterback rating of just 22.2.

Johnson is in the final year of his deal and could prove to be a valuable piece of this already-great Chiefs defense en route to a Super Bowl. The 24-year-old vocally expressed his desire for a new contract prior to the season, but has not allowed that situation to get in the way of his focus this year. Although the Bears have been a bad team, overall, Johnson is arguably this defense's MVP and one of the best players on the roster.
