It’s a mock draft Monday, which means we highlight any Nittany Lions players that have been mocked in the first round of the draft. The one player many were projecting to be an early-round draft pick was offensive tackle Rasheed Walker. But one fresh mock draft has another Penn State player emerging as a possible first-round pick.

Jordan Reid of The Draft Network has the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson with the 31st pick. How about that?

Jahan Dotson is continuing to shine in Penn State’s offense this season. He has shown off his ability to catch passes in tight windows and has done an impressive job creating separation with his defenders.

He would be a huge help for the Chiefs’ offense. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid loves speed, and that is exactly what Dotson brings to the table along with his elite athleticism.

There are several mock drafts right now that have the Chiefs selecting a wide receiver in the first round, with the popular one being Arkansas receiver Treylon Burks. However, with him already being off the board, Reid decides to go a different route in this mock draft by selecting a player that will also be ready to come in and make an immediate impact on day one.

The Chiefs let Sammy Watkins walk in free agency to the Baltimore Ravens and their current number two wide receiver is Mecole Hardman. Hardman has had an exceptional career thus far for the Chiefs, but has it been enough to solidify himself as Mahomes’ second option?

So let your imagination flow for a moment at the thought of Dotson catching passes from Patrick Mahomes. Oh yes, that could be pretty fun to watch.
