NFL Draft Pick Signings Are Ahead Of Last Year's Pace, Chiefs Are Not

Last year at this time, 96 of the NFL's 256 draft picks were signed. This year that number is up 17% to 112 of 255 total draft picks.

Why the increase?

Probably no reason in particular. As we've said before, getting the late round picks usually isn't a big deal. The way the NFL slotting works, the contract pretty much makes itself.

It's the first round picks -- particularly the top 12 -- that you've gotta worry about.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs are not one of the teams ahead of last year's pace. By this time last year, the Chiefs had three draft picks signed. This year they've only got one (Kendrick Lewis).

It's Friday and the Chiefs seem to release a lot of news on Friday afternoon so make sure you check back later today.

A full list of all the players that have signed is after the jump.
