Know your Chiefs draft Crush: Jameson Williams and Jahan Dotson
We continue to examine receiver prospects as the draft gets ever-closer.
Welcome back to “know your draft crush.” As I do every year, we’re examining a whole position group that the Chiefs appear likely to attack in the draft. This year, I’ve picked wide receivers (with perhaps a side of edge rushers). I’m looking at 13 receivers, gauging various traits and giving an overall impression of what type of resources I’d expend to grab them. In the finale, I’ll put them into tiers and talk about what direction I’d go if I were Brett Veach.
With each prospect I’ll look at speed/acceleration/agility, release ability (ability to get free at the line and how they do it), route running, hands/strength at catch point, and yards after catch ability. Here are the receivers I’m looking at in alphabetical order:
Calvin Austin III, David Bell, Treylon Burks, Jahan Dotson, Drake London, Skyy Moore, Chris Olave, George Pickens, Alec Pierce, Jalen Tolbert, Christian Watson, Jameson Williams, Garrett Wilson.
These were the names brought to me most often from what I can tell, so they’re the ones I chose. If you’re looking for other draft resources, you should check out my friend Ryan Tracy’s Athletic Matrix, the good folk over at KCSN and their draft guide, Dane Brugler’s legendary “Beast,” or the people over at The Draft Network.
We examined Treylon Burks already in an article unlocked for everyone. We’ve also already looked at Drake London, who I really liked. Earlier this week we got to know Chris Olave and Christian Watson.
Today, we’ll look at Jameson Williams and Jahan Dotson.
