With the 89th and final pick in the NFL Mocks midseason mock draft for the AFC West, the Kansas City Chiefs select Johnny Wilson, Florida State hybrid TE/WR. Stocking up on playmakers at WR is the Chiefs' solution to Patrick Mahome's worst NFL season.
Johnny Wilson, a towering 6-foot-7 and 235 lbs, hails from Calabasas, CA, where he was a high school football standout. He garnered 4-star recruit rankings from ESPN and 247 Sports and initially committed to the University of Oregon before transferring to Arizona State. During his first and second years, Wilson had 18 receptions, one touchdown, and a QB rating of 69.1 and 50.6, respectively.
In 2022, Wilson moved to Florida State, and his college career skyrocketed. He played in 12 games, recording 43 receptions for 897 yards and five touchdowns with a QB rating 109.1. As a result, he was awarded Second-Team All-ACC, recognized on the Third-Team All-ACC by Phil Steele, and named FSU's Offensive Newcomer of the Year. His impressive size and speed, demonstrated by his 4.5 40-yard dash in high school and unique metrics in the 2023 offseason, has placed him on the NFL's radar.
Wilson is a big-body target with speed, power and hands. He is a mismatch for almost any defender he will come up against as a third look in the checkdown. Pairing him with Kelce and Mitchell will elevate Mahomes to GOAT status.
