The Kansas City Chiefs are indeed trying hard to get rid of their #3 overall pick. From Adam Teicher at The Red Zone:
The Chiefs are apparently trying hard to move down from the number three spot. I'm hearing they offered the Lions that pick plus a fourth-round choice in return for Detroit's other first-rounder (#20) and Detroit's second-rounder (#33).
The Lions rejected the offer. Too bad for the Chiefs. Since they don't have a second-round pick, this stands a chance of being a one-player draft for the Chiefs. And they need more than one player from this draft.
So the Chiefs are willing to give up their first round pick, plus their fourth round choice to snag basically two first rounders. I'm not surprised the Lions rejected the offer. If you already had one albatross pick at #1, why put another one around your neck?
This is showing just how much the Chiefs want out of the third overall pick. Look how this breaks down in the draft trade chart (as old as it may be):
Chiefs - #3 (2,200 points) + #98 (108 points) = 2,308 points
Lions - #20 (850) + #33 (580 points) = 1,430 points
The draft is heating up...can you feel it?
