Kansas City Chiefs Set To Trade Up For Henry Ruggs
The Kansas City Chiefs are trading up for Henry Ruggs, it appears.
According to Peter King of NBC Sports, the reigning champs may make a big splash in this weekend’s 2020 NFL Draft.
“Craziest rumor of the first round: Chiefs want to trade up for Henry Ruggs if he falls into the twenties,” he said.
“Insane. Do they want every sub 4.35 guy in the National Football League?
“A couple of theories: There are only two very good cover corners in this draft, Okudah and Henderson, and they’d be long gone by the time the Chiefs could make a reasonable offer.
“Sammy Watkins is a short-termer, probably only one more year in KC, so another quick-twitch guy would fit either this year or next. Finally, fast guys with slight builds who collide with defenders tend to get hurt, so Ruggs would be good insurance for that in 2020 and a stalwart beyond that.”
Will this ultimately happen? Time will tell.
