Round 3, No. 94 (via PHI): Jonathan Mingo, WR, Ole Miss
More aggression as Veach climbs back into day two by packaging a few late-round picks. In doing so, the Chiefs find a difference-maker for the pass-catching group. While the team hopes Skyy Moore takes a second-year leap and Kadarius Toney looks more comfortable with a full offseason under his belt, the need for more upside is there at receiver.
Even if both guys drastically improve, the idea of bringing Jonathan Mingo into the locker room is tantalizing. The Ole Miss pass catcher has drop issues, which could force him down the board, but the upside he brings everywhere else mitigates the risk.
Mingo is a top-tier athlete, displaying elite burst and top-end speed. He essentially turns into a running back with the ball in his hands, charting out his running lanes as he surveys the field. With Patrick Mahomes as his quarterback and Andy Reid as his play caller, Mingo would blossom into a superstar in Kansas City.
Round 3, No. 95: DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas
Nick Bolton and Leo Chenal serve as pillars of the linebacker room, but Willie Gay’s play has been volatile — at best. At No. 95 in this mock draft, the Chiefs select Texas defender, DeMarvion Overshown, to add competition to the depth chart.
The most promising quality of Overshown’s game is the versatility he brings. He was once a safety before moving to linebacker and profiles as a “position-less” new-age player. As a Chief, Overshown has a chance to earn snaps all over the field.
He is one of the hardest hitters in the 2023 NFL Draft, and thanks to his history as a safety, Overshown possesses magnificent range. The Longhorn alum utilizes his picturesque frame, flexing long arms capable of disrupting passing lanes. This move is a bit of a wildcard at the end of day two, but I trust Spagnuolo to consistently get Overshown on the field as a rookie.
