The Chiefs grab a third play-maker to team with Jeremy Maclin and Tyreek Hill.
As a senior, Davis amassed 97 receptions for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns. Sources say the 6-foot-3, 209-pounder is long and athletic. He has impressed evaluators with good route-running, hands, and deceptive speed. They also like his run-after-the-catch skills and size.
Davis was banged up somewhat in 2015, but still produced, totaling 90 receptions for 1,436 yards with 12 touchdowns. In 2014, Davis was excellent with 78 catches for 1,408 yards and 15 touchdowns. He had quality production as a freshman as well (67-941-6).

Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU
The Chiefs could use more cornerback talent to go with Marcus Peters.
White produced some huge plays early in 2016 on his way to totaling 35 tackles with 14 passes broken up and two interceptions on the year. The 5-foot-11, 191-pounder is fast with the ability to prevent separation, but he can struggle with big receivers. Some team sources have said they graded White in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
White totaled 44 tackles with seven passes broken up and a punt returned for a touchdown in 2015. He had some struggles with big receivers in Mississippi State's De'Runnya Wilson and Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell that season. White played well in 2013 and 2014 with two picks in each year and solid run support. He had 55 tackles as a freshman and 33 stops as a sophomore. White showed steady ball skills over his career, batting away seven passes in 2013 and six as a sophomore.

Brian Hill, RB, Wyoming
The Chiefs grab some running back talent and have shown interest in Hill.
Hill (6-1, 219) is a thick running back who produced a lot of yards and points in 2016. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry for 1,860 yards with 22 touchdowns alongside eight catches for 67 yards. As a sophomore, Hill produced with an average of 5.8 yards per carry for 1,631 yards with six touchdowns. He had his best receiving season that year with 20 receptions for 132 yards. Hill projects as first- and second-down back in the NFL.

Elijah Lee, OLB/ILB, Kansas State
The Chiefs could use more linebacker depth and a potential replacement for Derrick Johnson. Kansas City has shown interest in Lee.
In 2016, Lee recorded 110 tackles with 6.5 tackless for a loss, 1.5 sacks, two interceptions and three passes broken up. The junior is a solid tackler with some athleticism. In 2015 as a sophomore, Lee had 80 tackles with three interceptions.
Lee (6-3, 228) was a surprise early entry into the 2017 NFL Draft. He was not invited to the combine.

Eric Saubert, TE, Drake
The Chiefs grab a tight end to work behind Travis Kelce.
Saubert (6-5, 253) showed his receiving skills at the Senior Bowl, continuing to use speed and athleticism to get separation from defenders. He will need to improve his blocking for the NFL, but his size allows him to match up with front seven defenders. Some scouting sources were raving about Saubert's route-running in the seven-on-seven drill. In a talented tight end class, Saubert could turn into a really nice value pick on Day 3 of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Elijah Qualls, DT/NT, Washington
The Chiefs let Dontari Poe leave and could consider adding some nose tackle talent.

Jermaine Eluemunor, G/OT, Texas A&M
The Chiefs get some guard competition and depth.

Chad Kelly, QB, Ole Miss
Andy Reid loves developmental quarterbacks, while Kelly has a skill set that would appeal to Reid. Additionally, Kansas City is willing to take on players with character concerns. The team also hosted Kelly on a pre-draft visit.
Rd. 6, Pk. 6
Jordan Roos, G, Purdue
The Chiefs get some interior line depth and have shown interest in Roos.
The Chiefs found some production out of nowhere from Dee Ford last year, but he has regressed back to his injured ways this season. Meanwhile, their other edge rushers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali are neither young nor healthy consistently anymore. Though when healthy Houston is still a major threat, but he needs someone to take attention away as he ages. Carter is a player who finally looked good this season after teasing an amazing skill set throughout his career. Maybe he can carry it into the NFL as a nice sleeper option.
Last Mock Pick: Marcell Frazier OLB Missouri
Kansas City finally gets on the draft board, and their primary objective with their first pick will boil down to upgrading and rounding out the offense in preparation for Pat Mahomes' debut. The weakest spot offensively has to be at WR, where Tyreke Hill has been...fine, but beyond that is an absolute wasteland.
Cobbs is big, he can make big plays, and he adds a passing attack dynamic that hasn't been in KC for quite sometime.
The Chiefs just drafted Tanoh Kpassagnon on the second day last year, but he really did not make much of an impact at all for them. I would not give up on him, but they need more potent pass rushing up front to help out Justin Houston and their secondary. Duke Ejiofor is a solid all around end who can push the pocket and attack the run. He is not a flashy pick, but he should be a steady option on the inside where they have been a tad weaker since Dontari Poe left.
Last Mock Pick: Lorenzo Carter OLB Georgia
Even though the Chiefs acquired Kendall Fuller, they could use another cornerback. It will be two more corners if Kansas City actually trades Marcus Peters. <br> <br>
Alexander missed four games early in the 2017 season with a knee injury he suffered in the season opener and then dealt with a broken hand that caused him to miss two more games. When Alexander was on the field in 2017, he covered well, totaling 19 tackles with four passes broken up and an interception. Alexander (5-11, 188) was very good for Louisville in 2016. He had 39 tackles with nine passes broken up and five interceptions. Alexander also is a dangerous punt returner. There is a lot of upside for him to develop.
