NFL Draft results: Chiefs will be players on day three with seven picks

The Kansas City Chiefs 2016 NFL Draft results are in for the first two days of the draft. The Chiefs traded out of the first round of the draft, made a pick in the second round and then traded out of the second round to stack more picks. The Chiefs now have three fourth round picks, two fifth round picks and two sixth round picks. The Chiefs made two picks on Friday - DT Chris Jones in the second round and CB KeiVarae Russell in the third round. They now have seven picks left on the final day.

There's some debate about whether the Chiefs did good by making those trades but the Chiefs now enter day three with two high picks in the fourth round -- No. 105 and 106 are the seventh and eighth picks of the fourth round. Chiefs GM John Dorsey thinks the fourth round is still a good spot to add talent.

The Chiefs needed to add a defensive lineman and a cornerback early in this draft. They did that with their first two picks. Those are both positions that a lot of us predicted would be the first two picks ... except none of us guessed that these two would be the picks.
