2. Drake London
London is widely regarded as the top wide receiver prospect in this year’s class which means he won’t remain on the board when Kansas City goes on the clock near the bottom of the first round. However, London could be an attainable target for the Chiefs if they want to move up to the middle of Round 1.
A lot of mock drafts have London going in the top-10 but there’s always a chance he slips just a little bit on Draft Night. London has excellent size for the wideout position but some teams might pass on him due to his lack of elite, track speed on the outside.
The Chiefs are too smart to let that minor weakness in London’s game concern them. He has a terrific ability to high point the football in traffic that could work as a cheat code for the Kansas City offense. London also generates better than average separation at the top of his intermediate routes. He’s a guy who projects as a No. 1 receiver on the outside early in his professional career.
London can’t threaten opposing secondaries in the slot the way that Hill has done for years in Kansas City, but he can give them a different sort of weapon to leverage on the outside. Moving up to take him high in Round 1 might not be worth the price for Andy Reid and his coaching staff, but he’s a prospect they should spend a lot of time evaluating.
