Alex Smith trade compensation changes to 2014 2nd round pick

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Chiefs now owe the 49ers their second round choice in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The conditional draft pick has been settled. The Kansas City Chiefs are likely very happy to pay the increased price.

This offseason, the Chiefs traded two draft picks to the San Francisco 49ers for the services of Alex Smith. The first pick was the team's second round choice in the 2013 NFL Draft, a selection that eventually fell into the hands of the Tennessee Titans who selected wide receiver Justin Hunter. The second choice was a 2014 pick that was conditional on the Chiefs win total.

That condition was met on Sunday as the Chiefs crossed the eight win threshold. The 49ers now own the Chiefs second round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft as well. I have a feeling the Chiefs would make that trade again in a heartbeat.

It will be interesting to compare this deal in a few years to see how the draft picks have fared and how Smith fit in KC over the long haul. The 49ers chose Tank Carradine a few picks later having traded down with the Titans. Carradine is a promising defensive tackle who suffered a torn ACL at Florida State. The Niners took him when his stock was low, knowing he would eventually reap future dividends. He's ready to start contributing in Week 9.
