The Kansas City Chiefs 7 draft picks, pre-compensatory picks

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL released the official 2013 NFL Draft order as we know it now. Compensatory picks have yet to be handed out so the latter half of the draft will be tweaked a little. Check out the Chiefs current draft order below.

Did you hear the Kansas City Chiefs have the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft? True story. We might have to start talking about that at some point.

The NFL recently released the current 2013 NFL Draft order:

Round 1, pick 1 (1)
Round 2, pick 2 (34)
Round 3, pick 1 (63)
Round 4, pick 2
Round 5, pick 1
Round 6, pick 2
Round 7, pick 1

We're not quite sure what the exact pick number on rounds four through seven will be due to compensatory picks, which will be announced at a later date. Those are very complicated and no one seems to know the exact formula but the basic idea is that if you lost more free agents the year before than you gained, you could be in line for a compensatory pick. The level of that pick -- anywhere from the third to seventh round -- depends on the playing time and contract of the player who was lost.

The Chiefs could be in line for a high compensatory pick due to the loss of Brandon Carr, who got paid a ton of money in Dallas. One of the big free agents they signed last year, Eric Winston, was cut by his former team, so not a true free agent, which means he doesn't calculate into the compensatory pick formula.

Now what could the Chiefs do with an extra third round pick?
