The KC Chiefs have their fair share of needs in the 2021 NFL Draft, but which positions do they not need to focus on? 

The 2021 NFL Draft is only a few weeks away and the Kansas City Chiefs have eight picks as of this writing. The team has plenty of needs heading into the draft ranging from offensive tackle to wide receiver to linebacker.

We constantly discuss the positions needing addressed the most in the draft, but what about the positions that are fine as is and don’t need anymore fine-tuning? That’s what we’ll touch on in this article. Let’s get to it.

Positions KC Chiefs don’t need to address in draft

Defensive Tackle

With Chris Jones and Derrick Nnadi as the starters and Jarran Reed and Tershawn Wharton as the backups, the Chiefs have a good-looking group at defensive tackle. They could still use help at defensive end, as Frank Clark is really the only decent name there and even that’s a stretch.

If the Chiefs were to draft someone at defensive tackle, it wouldn’t be shocking, as Nnadi and Reed will hit free agency at the end of the 2021 season. With bigger needs on the defensive side of the ball, defensive tackle is a position that can be left alone in the draft.
