Kansas City Chiefs plotting move into top-10 for Garrett Wilson

Since trading Tyreek Hill, the Kansas City Chiefs arguably don’t have a No. 1 wide receiver. They may be working on a trade to change that in the 2022 NFL Draft. Specifically, a rumor has emerged of their interest in selecting Ohio State’s Garrett Wilson in the first round, but they’ll have to move up from pick 29 to do so, thus the trade idea.

Which, after receiving five draft picks in the Hill trade, general manager Brett Veach should have plenty of ammo to make some moves.

 

Kansas City radio station suggests Chiefs could make a big draft-day trade

The trade rumor originates from a Kansas City radio station, 610’s Fescoe In The Morning.

“I got a call last night from somebody who floated this rumor out that they heard about the Chiefs,” Fescoe said. “And it was that the Chiefs trading both 1’s and their second-round picks — whether it’s 40 or 50, depending on how high they want to move up — to get to around Top 5 in the Draft. Now to get to Top 5 in the Draft, they would have to trade their two 1’s and that first second-round pick. If they want to get to 7-8 in the Draft, they can trade their two 1’s and their second second-round pick and move up to there. And the target, from what I heard yesterday, appears to be Garrett Wilson, the wide receiver out of Ohio State.”
