The Kansas City Chiefs go wide receiver with two of their first three picks in this seven round 2015 NFL mock draft.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

With the compensatory picks getting announced on Monday night we now know all of the Kansas City Chiefs 10 draft picks in the 2015 NFL Draft. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report did a seven round 2015 NFL mock draft now that all the picks are out and in his mock the Chiefs come away with three receivers. Not bad, not bad...

Read Miller's analysis here. Let's review his picks for the Chiefs.

1 (18) Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham

2 (49) Miami OT Ereck Flowers

I'm very intrigued by both of these picks. DGB, we've talked about. He's a supreme talent with plenty of other questions. I have my doubts about the Chiefs taking him this high. What I would guess is more likely is the Chiefs waiting to see if he falls into the second round. I just don't see him going No. 18. As for Flowers, that's a great pick based on how high I've seen him going in other mock drafts. The Chiefs do need an offensive tackle so picking one in the first few rounds has to be a legitimate possibility. Also, the last time the Chiefs picked a guy named Flowers in the second round it worked out pretty well.

3 (80) FSU WR Rashad Greene

3 (98) Texas ILB Jordan Hicks

Those compensatory picks are helpful. The Chiefs would be selecting Hicks in response to the inside linebacker troubles the team had last season. Derrick Johnson is entering the final year of his deal and I'm not convinced Josh Mauga is a long-term answer. Inside linebacker needs to be a high pick, arguably higher than the 98th overall pick.

Also note that the Chiefs have four picks in the top 100.

4 (118) West Virginia G Mark Glowinski

5 (172) Memphis CB Bobby McCain

5 (173) Central Michigan WR Titus Davis

6 (192) UCLA FS AJ Jefferson

6 (217) Florida C Max Garcia

7 (233) Florida DL Leon Orr

I don't know much about these players but I like all the positions selected. These all fill needs or question marks for the Chiefs. Center remains a question so drafting one in the sixth would set up a competition between Eric Kush. And perhaps Jeff Allen? I'm still trying to figure out his position.
