2. Jalen McMillan - WR, Washington (Pick 64)

What's better than one highly-touted wide receiver prospect? TWO highly-touted wide receiver prospects!

This would be a stunner, but Jalen McMillan is one of the draft's biggest risers and would help ensure the Chiefs' problems at wide receiver become a thing of the past. He caught 164 passes for 2,143 yards and 17 TDs in his college career and QBs had a 125.1 passer rating when targeting him.

His ability to create yards after the catch will remind fans of Rashee Rice and his versatility could make him a perfect fit for Kansas City's offense.

McMillan is fast with 4.47 speed, has strong hands, runs routes well and is adept at finding space in coverages to get open.

Pairing McMillan with Coleman would give the Chiefs a diverse wide receiver room, and at least one of those two will turn into an impactful player in the NFL. With Rice already in the fold and Hollywood Brown here for a season, Brett Veach could turn the team's biggest weakness into an exciting strength virtually overnight.
