PLAYER EVALUATION

We may have the highest grade for this prospect out of any service. Mayfield had a great 2019 season; he opted out of 2020 and then opted back in. Mayfield graded well in 2019-20. He is a player with elite athleticism and size. He does lack experience posting less than 1000 snaps at Michigan. His upside will hinge on his ability to improve his hand placement and show more consistency as a pass blocker. He can often open up too wide or incorrectly place his hands too far outside rather than inside the defender. He is a versatile player who can move from tackle to guard if needed or full-time, depending on how well he develops.

TEAM ANALYSIS

Other Considerations If Available:

Georgia Edge Azeez Ojulari or Miami Edge Jaelan Philips or Alabama IOL Landen Dickerson or Michigan OT Jalen Mayfield

The Chiefs have a lot of options to fill needs in the draft or through free agency. They have a favorable cap situation, so the opportunity to fix their OL will be a priority. The Chiefs need an IOL and Edge rush. They can go either way where they sit in the draft and have plenty of options. Ohio State IOL Wyatt Davis might be the best opportunity, or if they are looking for an edge rusher late, they could land an edge rusher like Azeez Ojulari or Jaelan Philips.
