Kansas City Chiefs Favored To Land Dynamic Patrick Mahomes Weapon

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is in need of some more weapons in the aerial attack, and the Chiefs may be targeting one in the NFL Draft later this month.

According to Bookies.com, University of Texas wide receiver Adonai Mitchell is the favorite to be selected by Kansas City with the last pick of the first round of the draft at +400 odds.

Mitchell is coming off of a senior campaign in which he hauled in 55 receptions for 845 yards and 11 touchdowns. While his numbers may not look overly impressive, he ran a 4.34 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, and at 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, he also has terrific size.

The 21-year-old began his collegiate career at the University of Georgia, and in his freshman season, he caught 29 passes for 426 yards and four scores. The following year, he played in just six games and logged nine catches for 134 yards and three touchdowns before transferring to Texas.

The Chiefs have tried to address their needy receiving corps this offseason, signing former Arizona Cardinals wide out Marquise Brown.

However, with Rashee Rice’s status for 2024 up in the air due to some current legal issues, Kansas City may have to double down on its passing game in the draft.

If Rice is unavailable for next season, the Chiefs won’t have a whole lot of proven talent outside of Brown at the position. Yes, Kansas City still has tight end Travis Kelce, but wide receiver was a point of weakness for the Chiefs in 2023, and if they don’t have Rice in 2024, it will once again be a weak area.

That’s why Kansas City may very well focus on adding another receiver (or more) in the draft later this month, and Mitchell seems like a fine candidate for Mahomes.

The Chiefs have won back-to-back Super Bowl championships, and no team in the Super Bowl era has ever three-peated.

In order for Patrick Mahomes and Co. to make that happen, they may need some more talent on the offensive side of the ball.
