1. Kansas City Chiefs (No. 63)
What better position for a young receiver to be than with arguably the best quarterback in the NFL? If Jayden Reed were to land in Kansas City, he would be set up for a while.
The Chiefs lost JuJu Smith-Schuster to the Patriots this offseason and their projected starting receivers right now are Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, and Skyy Moore. While those are some young, intriguing wideouts, they aren’t going to be enough for a guy like Patrick Mahomes. He does have Travis Kelce, too, but this receiving corps is underwhelming.
Reed would come in and contribute as a two or three-deep receiver and work his way up the depth chart. Plus, he’s explosive enough and can play special teams so starting receivers like Moore and Toney don’t have to carry the punt-returning load.
The Chiefs have the final pick in the second round and this would be a nice birthday surprise for the Spartan wideout.
Playing with Mahomes would set him up nicely.
