Targets for Round Four and Beyond

1. Caden Sterns, S (Texas)

Caden Sterns has good size and the coverage ability to give the Chiefs a third very versatile safety should Daniel Sorensen leave in free agency.

2.) Paulson Adebo, CB (Stanford)

Paulson Adebo at one point was pushing toward first-round potential but some up-and-down play and opting out this year could allow him to slide to day three. If so, he fits well with the length and athletic profile that Spags requires of his cornerbacks and would be a high upside pick for the Chiefs.

3. Payton Turner, DE (Houston)

Payton Turner is a big powerful defensive end that would fit in well with the Chiefs. He has plenty of burst off the edge and he’s strong and versatile enough to play on the interior if needed.

4. Adetokunbo Ogundeji, DE (Notre Dame)

Adetokunbo Ogundeji has a high motor and great athletic traits and size at the defensive end position. He is also extremely raw so he might be a little bit of a project but the upside is there to make him a great day three value.

5. Mike Strachan, WR (Charleston)

Mike Strachan is a big wide receiver at 6’5″ and 225 pounds but isn’t your typical big receiver. He is a dual athlete, also recording school track records while at Charleston. He reported that his best 40 time is 4.38. This makes him a very intriguing option for the Chiefs late in the draft.

6. Dan Moore, OL (Texas A&M)

Dan Moore is another big lineman that could be a good project to take late in the draft. He may not be a day one starter, so the Chiefs will hopefully have addressed the offensive line to some extent before drafting Moore. He has a lot of traits that scream NFL starting tackle and if he is unable to develop there he could kick inside and be a force in the middle.

dark. Next. Mock Draft: Chiefs Find LT of Future

The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot to address this offseason and some of these needs will likely change after free agency, but for now, they would be wise to look at some of these prospects to address their needs.
