Chiefs shut out of 2016 compensatory picks

New, comments

While the Kansas City Chiefs are set up well for 2017 compensatory picks, they were shut out of them in 2016. The NFL announced 33 compensatory picks for this year's draft and the Chiefs were not among those teams rewarded.

The Chiefs lost a big free agent in Rodney Hudson and his $8.5M deal in Oakland. However, the Chiefs also signed a big free agent in Jeremy Maclin, who got nearly $11M per year. Those two canceled out. The Chiefs had a few other free agents they lost but also signed G Paul Fanaika to a multi-year deal last season.

Of this year's comp picks, the Lions, Patriots, Seahawks and Broncos received third round picks. If KC doesn't sign anymore big free agents this year, they could be looking at a high comp pick from Sean Smith next season.

From 1994-2016, the Chiefs have had 19 comp picks. The Ravens lead the way with 47 in that time.
