Our final grades for the Chiefs' 2017 NFL draft class.

April 29, 2017

The Chiefs went all-in on QB Patrick Mahomes, using picks 27, 91 and a 2018 first-rounder to climb 17 spots in Round 1 for the Texas Tech prospect. If Mahomes develops under Andy Reid’s watch, that could set the Chiefs up at quarterback for years to come. It likely doesn’t do anything for them next season, which is noteworthy given how this team is built to contend. Second-round DE Tanoh Kpassagnon (pick No. 59) is another multi-year developmental project. RB Kareem Hunt (No. 86) could have the earliest impact of this draft class. He’s a Round 3 version of Dalvin Cook, headed to a team with an unsettled backfield. This a cross-your-fingers draft class that could help solidify the future, but offers minimal help for the present. Click here for a complete list of the Chiefs’ picks.
