The Kansas City Chiefs are open for business leading up to the first round of the NFL Draft.

Kansas City is reportedly motivated to trade up and they have the picks to make it happen. The Chiefs have 12 picks in the draft, eight of which are in the first four rounds.

If the Chiefs are looking for a wide receiver, they will have plenty of options, depending on how the board shakes out. They could look to take Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson, or Jameson Williams if all three are available.

Any of those three players would instantly make their offense even more dangerous heading into the 2022 season.

Defensively, they could go best player available, and depending on where they trade up to, they could get Jordan Davis. Davis expected to go between No. 11 and No. 25 on Thursday night and would be an instant upgrade to Kansas City's defensive line.

We'll see if these rumors lead to a trade before the first round starts. You can watch the NFL Draft on ESPN, ABC, and NFL Network starting at 8 p.m. ET.
