Chiefs trade back AGAIN, add third and fourth round pick

The Kansas City Chiefs have traded AGAIN. The Chiefs were scheduled to pick 59th in the second round and traded with the Bucs. The Chiefs in turn got the Bucs third (74) and fourth (106) round picks.

With that pick the Bucs took ... a KICKER IN THE SECOND ROUND!!!

This was almost perfectly even in the NFL draft trade value chart (310 points to 302). The Chiefs are now back in the third round with a third round pick, three fourth round picks, two fifth round picks and two sixth round picks.. The Chiefs can easily come back into the third round.

Chiefs GM John Dorsey was asked on Thursday about the difference in talent between the third and fourth round.

"Actually, if you really do your assessment in the third round, if you look mid-way through the third round, it takes you all the way down to three-quarters of the fourth round," Dorsey said via quotes from the Chiefs. "Historically, if you study those particular picks, over the life of that pick, meaning the career of that player, they usually pan out the same, and that's a wide variety but those are the pockets that they fall in to. What I like is when that fourth pick, I believe it's 105, with that hundred and fifth pick, that's a really good position to be in because again, at round four, that's a sweet spot to be in."
