2015 NFL draft order: First 3 rounds after Patriots beat Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

With the New England Patriots beating the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, we now know the 2015 NFL Draft order. The Patriots will be picking last as the Super Bowl champions and the Seahawks will be picking directly before them. The Kansas City Chiefs, as you know, are picking 18th.

We only know the first three rounds of the NFL Draft order because the league has yet to award compensatory picks. Those are "extra" draft picks awarded to teams who lost more free agents than they signed in the previous year. The formula is more involved than that but the Chiefs are expected to receive as many as four compensatory picks. One projection had the Chiefs receiving a third round pick, two fifth round picks and a seventh round pick. Those compensatory picks don't start until the end of the third round so we know the first 96 picks in the 2015 NFL Draft order.

In a recent poll, Chiefs fans said the team needed wide receiver, offensive tackle, offensive guard and inside linebacker. There have been some mock drafts with the Chiefs selecting a receiver, which is obvious given they went the entire season without a receiver catching a touchdown.

FIRST ROUND:

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2. Tennessee Titans
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
