Return to Mock Draft

Kansas City
Felix Anudike-Uzomah

Kansas State


Why not end the hometown draft with the hometown kid?!

Considered one of the purest pass rushers in the draft Felix Anudike-Uzomah, was the key component of the Kansas State defense and catapulted the Wildcats to a Big 12 championship. He was extremely productive in what was essentially only 2 years of football. Anudike-Uzomah tallied 97 total tackles, an incredible 26.5 TFLs, including 20.5 sacks. He finished 2022 with a PFF pass-rush grade of 74.2. The Lee's Summit High School product had the most defensive stops in a season for a Big 12 edge rusher since 2014.

My preferred trade-up for OT was not in the cards, but FAU fills a big need and this player will make the defense so much stronger. This is a Steve Spagnuolo kind of guy all the way - he has good length, long arms, a great bend off the edge, and a motor that doesn't top. Good news! There are several talented OTs, WRs, plus the top TEs available in RD2. Day 2 is going to be an interesting day. (Finally... Way to represent KC fans!)

Grade: A-
