The Kansas City Chiefs already added one playmaker during free agency, signing Marquise “Hollywood” Brown to bolster Patrick Mahomes’ receiving corps, but might not be done adding to one of the weakest links on a championship roster.

Last season, Mahomes‘ supporting cast was plagued by drops, with Chiefs receivers dropping a league-high 41 passes. So, the idea of doubling down on a commitment to bolster the talent at receiver, even after signing Brown, doesn’t sound far-fetched.

Kansas City Chiefs Go Up for Xavier Worthy in New Mock Draft

Kansas City Chiefs Urged to Trade Up for Speedster to Help Patrick Mahomes

In NFL.com analyst Chad Reuter’s last 2024 mock draft projection, the Chiefs trade up to select University of Texans burner Xavier Worthy at No. 19 overall, following a deal with the Los Angeles Rams.

“The Chiefs aren’t waiting around for a speedster like Worthy to stretch the field,” Reuter writes for NFL.com. “In fact, I won’t be surprised if they move into the top half of the draft for him. Yes, Kansas City just signed Marquise Brown, but a) it’s a one-year deal and b) the Chiefs could use multiple upgrades to the receiving corps. The Rams have historically traded down, so they could be a willing trade partner, getting K.C.’s first- and second-round selections in return.”

Worthy, in a lot of ways, fits the profile of the type of weapon who can be prolific catching passes from Mahomes.

At the NFL Combine, Worthy ran a blistering 4.21-second 40-yard dash after 75 passes for 1,014 yards and five touchdowns during his junior season in Austin. It’s easy to see that alongside emerging star Rashee Rice, Brown, and All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce that Worthy is capable of elevating Kansas City’s vertical passing game.

Xavier Worthy Scouting Report

Worthy may be a prototypical Chiefs receiver.

Sports Info Solutions suggests Worthy’s biggest strength may be his explosiveness.

“Xavier Worthy’s primary position is X-WR for Texas’ pro-style offense,” the outlet points out. “Although he has played all receiver positions, including significant time in the slot. He broke his hand late in the 2022 season and injured his left ankle late in the 2023 season, but neither cost him any games. Worthy has sufficient height and length, but has a slight frame. He has some toned muscle, but could add more to handle the NFL.

“He’s an explosive athlete with very good deep speed, and he flashes a fantastic ability to explode out of breaks. His acceleration and foot quickness are both NFL-caliber, as well. Playing through a broken hand and an injured ankle are testaments to how much he wants to compete, but when on the field, he will take numerous plays off when he is not likely to be targeted and provides a minimal effort when blocking.”
