Several positional needs make the Kansas City Chiefs hard to predict where they will spend their first-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.

With the 2020 NFL combine over, the next couple of months will be filled with college pro days. Analysts and fans alike will be throwing out all kinds of scenarios. A big question that is looming in the NFL community is what will coach Andy Reid, and GM Brett Veach of the Kansas City Chiefs do with pick 32? Veach has taken full advantage of his past two draft classes as the Chiefs general manager. Can he do it again? Here are four options and directions the Chiefs could go with pick 32 in this upcoming draft.

Trevon Diggs, cornerback Alabama

The younger brother of star Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs could come in and start right away for Kansas City.  Standing at 6’1 weighing in at 205, the lengthy Diggs will have the ability to line up across bigger wideouts. After watching Diggs tape you can’t help but see a bit of Marcus Peters in his play (former Chiefs 1st round pick) he tracks the ball well, has good length but his playmaker mentality can sometimes get the best of him as he will take risks that sometimes aren’t needed. If the Chiefs look to cut ties with corner Kendall Fuller, don’t be surprised if they pull the trigger on someone like Diggs if he is still on the board at 32.

Kenneth Murray, linebacker Oklahoma

Kenneth Murray has all the intangibles to be the steal of the draft. His mixture of speed and length could provide even more depth to a somewhat depleted Chiefs linebacking core. With Damien Wilson set to hit free agency and linebacker Reggie Ragland underperforming, the Chiefs may look to pick up a young linebacker like Murray to play and learn alongside veteran Anthony Hitchens. Murray’s speed gives him the ability to cover running backs out of the backfield from sideline to sideline. His speed sometimes can get the best of him as he sometimes takes bad angles. He relies on his speed/playmaking ability a bit too much.

Ben Bredeson offensive guard Michigan

The four-year starter and two-time team captain could be a reliable option if the Chiefs look to make more cap room by cutting ties with guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. As a senior, Ben Bredeson did not allow a sack in 451 offensive snaps. His quickness is still in question. Good size, 6-4 325 frame, with the ability to unlock his hips and create holes for the run game. Bredeson could make an immediate impact on the interior offensive line.

Long Shot

Jalen Reagor WR TCU – Another weapon for Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. Reagor is a more polished version of Mecole Hardman coming out of college, but his size mixed with his excellent playmaking ability can allow him to thrive at the NFL level as a WR2 or WR3. Adding his big-play ability to the Kansas City offense would take it up another level. If the Chiefs look to make more cap space by ending their tenure with veteran wideout Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson someone like Reagor could come in and provide right away for the 2020 Super Bowl champs.
