It's no secret the Kansas City Chiefs are up to something behind the scenes. There's whispers that KC could make a blockbuster trade for a star wide receiver following the departure of Tyreek Hill, but the NFL Draft also presents another avenue to accomplish that goal.

The latest rumor involving the Chiefs claims the team could potentially make a massive move up the draft board later this month.

Chiefs Draft Rumors

Bob Fescoe of 610 Sports Kansas City recently relayed a rumor he heard from an unnamed source about KC moving up in the draft. The team is supposedly looking to get "around top 5 in the draft" with a specific target in mind: Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson.

"I got a call last night from somebody who floated this rumor out that they heard about the Chiefs ... and it was that the Chiefs trading both 1's and their second-round picks -- whether it's 40 or 50, depending on how high they want to move up -- to get to around Top 5 in the Draft. ... And the target, from what I heard yesterday, appears to be Garrett Wilson, the wide receiver out of Ohio State."

Now, this is how the draft cycle goes. There are rumblings and leaks from shaky sources, all of whom have an agenda. This could all be smoke and nothing more.

However, when there's smoke, there's sometimes fire. It's clear the Chiefs are antsy to pair Patrick Mahomes with a new Pro Bowl wideout, and the draft is certainly the place to find impactful talent on a cheap contract.

The five draft picks Kansas City received in return for Hill puts them in great position to swing for the fences and pull off a trade into the top 10 if they want.

With Wilson projected as the top receiver in this talented class, he could help the Chiefs get over Hill quickly with a standout rookie debut.
