3. LT Kiran Amegadjie, Yale

With Donovan Smith also hitting free agency this spring, the Chiefs must think about their starting left tackle spot. Wanya Morris — drafted 92nd overall in 2023 — is currently the top Smith replacement after starting in four of his 14 appearances as a rookie, however, Kansas City could also draft someone to provide Morris with some competition.

If that's the case, look no further than Yale LT Kiran Amegadjie.

Amegadjie is the perfect addition to help protect Mahomes for the foreseeable future. He has great size (6-foot-5, 218 pounds) and terrific reach to help ensure any quarterback behind him is safe. He also boasts speedy footwork and knows how to knock defenders off balance, making him one of the more fun offensive linemen to watch.

Amegadjie only played four games last season due to a torn quad, but he's expected to make a full recovery. He still made the most of his limited playing time, only allowing five QB hurries across 128 pass-block downs. It was also the second season in a row where he didn't allow a single sack, leaving him with just one sack allowed across 860 passing downs since the beginning of the 2021 college football season, per Pro Football Focus.

The Chiefs love their athletic LTs and Amegadjie certainly fits the bill. If the Yale blocker can prove that his quad injury is nothing more than a mere memory, Kansas City might have a new O-line mainstay on its hands.
