Wildcat Star Projected to Chiefs in Mock Draft


The NFL Draft is just around the corner, and one of the stars of the Big 12 champion Kansas State Wildcats could be the next star of the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.


ESPN Senior Writer Todd McShay projects the Chiefs to select Wildcat defensive end Felix Anudike-Uzomah with the 31st overall pick in the 2023 draft.


The Chiefs aren't incredibly weak at any particular position, however could use depth and youth at both offensive tackle and pass rusher, something that Anudike-Uzomah has proven to be elite at. In his two seasons as a starter, he racked up 19.5 sacks and 30.5 tackles for loss, and his speed and explosiveness could prove a lethal counterpunch to the power and strength of Chris Jones and George Karlaftis.


There is a strong chance the Chiefs look to boost their pass rushing ability on draft weekend, and signs are pointing towards a nearby star potentially being the answer for the world champions.
