The Kansas City Chiefs recently announced their pick order for the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. At this writing, the Chiefs officially own six picks. By winning the AFC championship but losing Super Bowl LV, Kansas City picks second-to-last in each round, beginning with the No. 31-overall pick.

Round 1 – No. 31

Round 2 – No. 63

Round 3 – No. 95

Round 4 – TBD

Round 5 – TBD

Round 6 – TBD (Acquired from Miami in exchange for RB DeAndre Washington)

The numbers from rounds four to six are not currently known, as the NFL has yet to announce its compensatory picks. The compensatory rounds begin at the conclusion of round three.

According to Over The Cap, the Chiefs are projected to have two additional picks — a fourth-rounder stemming from defensive back Kendall Fuller signing with Washington and a fifth-rounder stemming from Emmanuel Ogbah signing with the Miami Dolphins.

Last year, the NFL announced the official draft order — including compensatory picks — in mid-March. The Chiefs received no additional picks in the 2020 NFL Draft.

General manager Brett Veach has shown no fear in being aggressive on draft weekend, so it’s unlikely the Chiefs use all eight projected picks.
