While everyone is rightfully fired up to get the World Cup in Kansas City for 2026, there’s another primetime event happening here that you won’t have to wait as long to experience. The NFL Draft is coming to the Midwest next offseason, setting up at Union Station and giving the city three days of festivities while college prospects find out where they’ll be starting their professional careers. With the next draft being in Kansas City, I feel it’s only right we take it up a notch in our preparation for who could be the next Kansas City Chiefs’ draft pick. So I put together a first-round mock draft for the 2023 NFL Draft, using DraftKings Sportsbook’s regular-season win totals for each team to determine a draft order — but I have the Chiefs picking last because they are winning Super Bowl LVI in this scenario (and in reality).
