1. The Chiefs are likely to get a 6th round compensatory pick according to preliminary calculations.

2. If the Chiefs trade their best interior offensive lineman, I very well may lose my shit. While the line has held up, there is a noticeable dropoff in both pass pro and the running game. LDT stays put.

3. You're showing here, yet again, that you think the worst problems are DL and CB and go overboard in filling those spots in my opinion. The Chiefs are losing Bailey and could stand to improve the depth, but I can't fathom them making more than two pickups: replace Bailey and upgrade the depth spot previously vacated by Jenkins and not adequately filled yet by Hamilton. Adding 3 CBs seems a bit overzealous as well when you're talking 2 picks in the first 2 days plus a premium FA. Dennard isn't top tier, but he's not the bottom of the barrel either. Not only are you doing that, but you're trading away 3 potential starters to go up and get Murphy who doesn't appear to be so good that he warrants that type of trade. He's not a Jalen Ramsey coming out by any stretch and I wouldn't have done that type of trade for him either.

4. You don't address the two biggest holes on the defense. The safety position is abysmal outside of Berry actually being healthy and you can't count on that. The ILB position is equally bad. Hitchens made a ton of tackles this year, but not very many were impactful and even fewer were behind or at the LOS. He's also a significant liability in pass coverage. O'Daniel has flashed occasionally and shown he may be able to at least assume a nickel linebacker role, but I'm not sure you can trust him to develop into an every down starter either. If I'm not going for a guy I think can be a day 1 starter, I'm at least going for another O'Daniel to improve the depth and possibilities.

5. I"d really love to see how you imagine fitting Ford and Bell along with extending Hill and Jones to those contracts is going to fit under the cap. Not only that, you're not exactly giving Dennard and Anderson peanuts. Even if you manage to fit it into 2019, I'd imagine you're going to have a mess in 2020 that is likely going to force you to at least cut or extend Houston with a restructure of 2020 salary and cut either Watkins or Berry and possibly both.

6. I don't knock the players you chose in the mock draft at all, and I rather like most of them. I'm just not sure that's how I'd approach the draft from a positional standpoint.
