64. player. 124. Washington mock draft. . . Pick 64. Ja'Lynn Polk. Round 2. Ja'Lynn Polk

Ja'Lynn Polk was the No. 2 receiver for the Huskies in 2023 with 1,159 yards on 69 receptions. Polk can track a ball with the best of them and has good hands. May not be the fastest receiver on the field but is smart and and is a physical receiver.

If anyone watched the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2023-2024 season know they need to get as many wide receivers in the draft as they can. Yes, they made the Super Bowl, but I think that was more thanks to thier defense bailing them out of lots of games.

The Chiefs could use a player like Polk who has good hands and can track a ball well. They need someone who goes where Mahomes needs them and is moldable. Polk could be a perfect fit in this offense and as we all know the Chiefs don't have to get receivers in the first round for them to be successful, just look at Rashee Rice.
