The 2014 NFL Draft is just around the corner now, which means writers everywhere will be making their final mocks for the year. This Thursday will be the most exciting day of the offseason for NFL fans, barely edging out Friday and Saturday. Let's take a look at one last scenario for the Kansas City Chiefs before it all goes down.

1st Round, No. 23: CB Justin Gilbert

Despite the fact it's the most likely scenario, I'm tired of seeing wide receivers mocked to the Chiefs in the first round. Gilbert represents the type of player who would be too good to pass up if he were to drop to No. 23. Zack Martin and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix would also fit that category. GM John Dorsey has stated that he's selecting the best available player. There's a good chance that will be a wide receiver, but it's certainly not a sure thing.

Norwood could be the possession receiver the Chiefs have been looking for. The 6-foot-2, 198 pounder ran a 4.48 in the 40-yard dash at the combine. He wasn't very productive in the college ranks, but his dependable hands added to his size and speed make Norwood a great pickup in the third round.

4th Round, No. 124: OT Seantrel Henderson

Henderson's work ethic makes him a risky pick, but his upside is too high to ignore. Dorsey has shown he isn't afraid to gamble if the ceiling is high enough with 2013 picks Knile Davis (injuries, fumbles) and Travis Kelce (injuries, character).

5th Round, No. 163: S Dezmen Southward

Southward still has plenty to learn, but his impressive pro day shows he has the athleticism to be a special player one day. He ran a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash, and added a 42-inch vertical leap.

6th Round, No. 193: DE Will Clarke

At 6-foot-6, 271 pounds, Clarke has the ideal length to add some depth to Chiefs' defensive line. He still needs to bulk up a bit, but his impressive senior campaign in which he led the West Virginia Mountaineers with six sacks and 17 tackles for a loss suggests he has some skills.

6th Round, No. 200: RB Henry Josey

Josey is another somewhat risky pick with a high ceiling. He tore his ACL, MCL, meniscus and patellar tendon in 2011, but came back and proved himself with an impressive injury-free 2013 season. He ran for 1,166 yards (6.7 per carry) and 16 touchdowns through a tough SEC schedule. He followed that with an incredible NFL Combine performance in which he ran the third fastest 40-yard dash (4.43) among running backs.
