No special theme this week, just five really good prospects. This group will include no underclassmen, so each of these players will likely be in the 2019 NFL draft come April.
I have identified over 170 prospects for the 2019 draft that I believe could be potential fits for the Kansas City Chiefs. I’ll be releasing mini scouting reports on these prospects in random groups of five up until the draft.
Check out the tenth group of prospects down below:
Ole Miss has a trio of wide receivers that could all end up in this draft. DaMarkus Lodge is probably mentioned after both juniors, A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf, but he really shouldn’t be. He’s got NFL size at 6-foot-2 and 204 pounds.
Lodge already has NFL level polish in his release and route-running. It all looks natural to him. His body control is among the most impressive I’ve seen in this draft class, especially when it comes to catching contested throws near the sidelines.
Lodge is selfless player and has laid some blocks for his teammates Brown and Metcalf. That’ll fit in nicely as far as the Chiefs’ offense goes. The only concern I have about him is that he’s purely an outside receiver for the Ole Miss Rebels. The Chiefs like to move guys around, so he could take some time getting adjust to playing in the slot.
Why would the Chiefs take a wide receiver in the top half of the draft? Chris Conley and DeAnthony Thomas are both free agents and there is no reason to stop building this offense into a powerhouse. If anything they should keep looking to add unique offensive skill sets to this team.
