The Kansas City Chiefs have excelled at tackling recent NFL Drafts and fans are hoping to see that trend continue later this month. The Chiefs are looking to re-stock the cupboards as they set their sights on a Super Bowl three-peat, leaving time to tell who general manager Brett Veach will select when the franchise makes its first pick at No. 32.

Even though the Chiefs might already know who they want to draft in Round 1, things can change. Experts can project certain players to be taken at specific spots, but the truth is that the NFL Draft is an unpredictable experience and there's always a chance that a highly touted prospect will slip through the cracks.

With that in mind, here's a trio of top prospects who could surprisingly fall to the Chiefs at No. 32.

1. OT Amarius Mims, Georgia

It's been well-documented that the Chiefs could use another offensive tackle to replace the departed Donovan Smith. Fortunately, this year's draft class is ripe with promising offensive line prospects, including Georgia's Amarius Mims.

Standing at 6-foot-8 and weighing 340 pounds, Mims is the perfect beast for the Chiefs to bring in to protect Patrick Mahomes. The Cochran, GA native was stellar throughout his three-year run with Georgia, only surrendering six hurries without any quarterback hits or sacks allowed across 402 passing downs.

Even if he only has half that much success in the NFL, it's easy to see why scouts love him. Mims does predominently play the right side, but that isn't an issue considering that Wanya Morris can play the left.

Mims' injury history is one of the main reasons I see him falling to Kansas City. Not only did an ankle injury limit him to seven games in his final collegiate season, but he also injured his hamstring while performing the 40-yard dash at the NFL Draft Combine.

Another reason why Mims could drop to No. 32 is that there are a ton of talented O-line prospects this year. It wouldn't be surprising if no one can successfully predict the order in which they're selected, meaning there's a decent shot that Mims will still be available at the end of the round.

If the Chiefs find themselves in a position where they can draft the 21-year-old blocker, Mims is the type of player that can help bring them one step closer to a three-peat.
