The Kansas City Chiefs' offseason is beginning to heat up a bit, as the team is getting a clearer picture of what they do and don't need as things proceed. For instance, the acquisition of safety Justin Reid eliminates the need for a starting-caliber safety via the 2022 NFL Draft. On the flip side, losing cornerback Charvarius Ward to the open market puts even more pressure on general manager Brett Veach to find a replacement. Veach's early draft track record was a bit spotty but over the years, he's become better at getting value out of the Chiefs' picks. The roster construction and positional value are still a bit questionable but nonetheless, it's hard to argue against a 2021 draft class that produced Nick Bolton, Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith. If Veach can replicate that success this year, the Chiefs can patch up a few holes on their roster. In the spirit of that, let's do a seven-pick mock draft and select some players who may help Kansas City both now and later.
