Chiefs Add Speedy Wideout In latest Mock Draft

The Kansas City Chiefs have won the Super Bowl again, which means fans have only two months to pore over every mock draft leading up to the offseason’s greatest event. Even though the squad won its second Lombardi Trophy in as many years, there is still work to be done if they want to try for a third straight.

While free agent decisions will be the top priority, the NFL Draft is always the most significant aspect of the team-building process. Finding young, cost-effective starters is critical for long-term success, and Mike Kashuba’s newest mock draft shows the Chiefs picking their next great deep threat.

According to the mock draft, Kashuba predicts the Chiefs will choose Texas  wide receiver Xavier Worthy with the 32nd pick.

Chiefs Add Explosive Playmaker To Latest Mock Draft

Xavier Worthy, the Player

Before we can talk about how Xavier Worthy fits into this Chiefs mock draft, we need to look at him as a prospect. Worthy’s blazing pace is evident in every rep he does. As of this publishing, Worthy had not to officially run the 40-yard sprint, but the footage says it all: this kid can easily blast by defenders.

While Worthy’s speed is his most appealing feature, he’s more than simply a one-trick pony. He’s shifty off the line and possesses the quick footwork required to be an above-average route runner at the next level.

Worthy has game-changing potential, but there is a reason why a player of this caliber may fall to the Chiefs in this mock selection. The Texas product is a sort of receiver that can be opened with two steps or not at all. Unofficially listed at 6′-1″ and 172 pounds, he lacks the strength to play through contact and cannot outmuscle anyone at the catch point. Additionally, Worthy has too many unsightly drops on tape, and Chiefs supporters should be well aware of how deadly drops can be.

Does the Chiefs mock draft make sense?

Are there any safer wide outs the Chiefs might choose in this mock draft? Absolutely. However, no one else on the board provides the same level of upside as Xavier Worthy, which is enough to justify a decision with the 32nd overall choice.

Worthy’s sheer lack of stature may destroy his chances of being anything more than an average NFL receiver. If he’s going to be successful anyplace, it’s with the Kansas City Chiefs. Playing press-man coverage against Patrick Mahomes is a recipe for disaster, so Worthy should have little trouble getting off the line of scrimmage.

Furthermore, Andy Reid is the best in the game at scheming men open, while Patrick Mahomes is unrivaled at throwing his guys open. Outside of maybe Josh Allen, no one has a better arm than Mahomes, as he can reach every region of the field. It should go without saying that Xavier Worthy will not be the next Tyreek Hill, but he should be a significant upgrade over Marquez Valdes-Scantling. This mock draft pick is a gamble for the Chiefs, but it’s one worth taking if players like Ladd McConkey and Keon Coleman are already off the board.
