Round 1, Pick 29: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
Skyy Moore is not as fast as Tyreek Hill, but who is? Still, you can count on one hand the number of times Moore was caught from behind in his entire collegiate career. He does not drop the football often either, with only four such occurrences in 125 targets in 2021. Moore is a smooth mover, and would bring a well-rounded game to the receiver room that meshes perfectly with the new additions added via free agency. As great as Patrick Mahomes is, you cannot have too many options on the outside.
Round 1, Pick 30: Quay Walker, LB, Georgia
Quay Walker is a best player available selection at 30, but he also fills a need for the Kansas City Chiefs. Willie Gay is in line to be the starter alongside 2021 second-round pick Nick Bolton, and while I like Gay, his upside is not enough to pass on the Swiss-army-knife from Georgia. Walker’s style matches up perfectly with Bolton. I see the two forming one of the most fearsome duos for the foreseeable future, with Bolton serving as a more traditional linebacker allowing Walker to mix in an array of different looks for opposing quarterbacks.
Round 2, Pick 50: David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan
It is impossible to tell just how far the Achilles tear is going to send Michigan’s David Ojabo down the board. If recent history is any indication, let’s use the Colts’ Dayo Odeyingbo as an example. Odeyingbo tore his Achilles in January of 2021, three months before the draft. He fell all the way to No.54 overall. So where does this leave Ojabo? Considering it is a stacked pass rush group, and the fact his injury came so much later in the offseason process, there’s a real chance he’s still available when the Chiefs come up at No. 50 overall. If that proves to be true, I cannot see them passing up the opportunity to add one of the best pass rushers available, even if he will most likely need to redshirt as a rookie. This is a Brett Veach type of move with so many picks at his disposal.
Round 2, Pick 62: Zyon McCollum, DB, Sam Houston State
Depending on who you ask, No. 62 overall may be a bit high for the defensive back out of Sam Houston State. Zyon McCollum is one of, if not THE, most athletic players available in 2022. He was a man-to-man menace during his time in college, but with his rare blend of athleticism, I see McCollum being able to spend time at safety as well. He is a sneaky pick at the end of round two and reminds me of Panthers’ safety Jeremy Chinn, who went 64th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.
