With the 2021 NFL Draft fast approaching, the draft buzz is reaching a fever pitch for all 32 pro football fanbases. Of course, college fanbases all over the country are also waiting to see where their departing juniors and seniors will land. Auburn football has several prospective NFLers who are currently working out for teams in hopes of hearing their name called during the three-day NFL Draft in late April/early May.

Seth Williams–one of the Tigers’ wide receivers (along with Anthony Schwartz) that teams are currently monitoring–has been linked to the 2x defending AFC Champions.

The Kansas City Chiefs, fresh off of a Super Bowl LV loss to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccanneers, could be a fit for the six-foot-three, 211-pound departing junior, according to Sports Illustrated’s Chiefs Fan Nation site.

Per Arrowhead Report’s Jordan Foote:

"Losing Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson to free agency will open up a need at X-WR for the Chiefs. Williams fits the mold as a big-bodied option and could contribute immediately. The team would be wise to add additional talent at wideout in addition to a rookie, but he would be a good start. The threats of Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill would present him with plenty of one-on-one opportunities. Both the need and fit in this situation are great."

Obviously, all Auburn football fans want to see for any Tiger striving to achieve his dream in the NFL is the best situation possible in year one. Being able to make an impact out of the gate is important for a league that isn’t exactly big on second chances.

Williams stepping into a pass-heavy offense with the league’s most talented quarterback (maybe ever) under center is as good as it gets for a rookie receiver. As Foote notes, Williams’ ability to snag balls out of the air as a “hand catcher” is something that should enable him to step into the Chiefs offense and produce highlights right away.

Here’s hoping Williams lands with a franchise that can empower him to succeed.

Kansas City definitely qualifies as such.
