It’s hard to look at the Kansas City Chiefs draft class and not believe they improved significantly. In Round 1, they traded up for Xavier Worthy, who might not be the star people expect following his 4.21 time in the 40-yard dash, but he’s still going to be deadly with Patrick Mahomes throwing him the ball.

In the second round, they took Kingsley Suamataia out of BYU, and he could be their left tackle of the future. They also landed a few undrafted free agents who might have an outside shot of stealing a roster spot, which means these three veterans might be on the trade block at some point this offseason.

3. Charles Omenihu, DE

In 2022, the Chiefs took George Karlaftis with the 30th overall selection and he’s registered 16.5 sacks in two seasons — 10.5 coming in 2023. They took Felix Anudike-Uzomah at No. 31 the following season and while he had just a half-sack as a rookie, he flashed more than enough athleticism to warrant more time going forward.

Kansas City also has Mike Danna and their top pass rusher remains Chris Jones, a beast in the interior. That’s why they might be willing to part with Charles Omenihu, who recorded 7.0 sacks in 11 games last year.

A former fifth-round pick from Texas, Omenihu has spent time in Houston and San Francisco but had his best run with the Chiefs. Considering the young talent they have around him, it might not be the worst idea to see if any pass-rush-needy teams would be willing to make a move.
