2021 NFL mock draft: How the first round could play out for K.C. Chiefs : Let's look at a complete first round mock draft to see how the opening round could play out for the K.C. Chiefs and the rest of the AFC West.
With the 2021 NFL Draft just over a month away, let’s take a look at what the first round could look like. The K.C. Chiefs are entering a time in their franchise when drafting well is more important than ever. Patrick Mahomes is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and he will become an expensive asset for Kansas City in the near future. If the Chiefs want to continue to compete in further Super Bowls, it is important that Mahomes will have a cheap but effective supporting cast around him. The Chiefs still have immense talent heading into 2021, but in a few years the team will look completely different. This draft is the start of building that foundation that will give Kansas City the opportunity of supporting Mahomes. This mock draft will also highlight how other selections from teams, especially in the AFC West, will affect Kansas City moving forward.
