Chiefs confirmed to have two compensatory picks in 2021 NFL Draft

With the compensatory picks added to the total, the Chiefs now officially hold eight picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs were awarded two compensatory picks in the 2021 NFL Draft on Wednesday afternoon — one in the fourth round and one in the fifth round.

The fourth-rounder comes as a result of defensive back Kendall Fuller signing with the Washington Football Team. The fifth-rounder comes from defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah signing with the Miami Dolphins.

Here are the Chiefs’ now-eight picks in the 2021 NFL Draft:

Round 1 – No. 31

Round 2 – No. 63

Round 3 – No. 94

Round 4 – No. 136

Round 4 – No. 144 (compensatory)

Round 5 – No. 175

Round 5 – No. 181 (compensatory)

Round 6 – No. 207 (Acquired from Miami in exchange for RB DeAndre Washington)

Note: In the normal order, the Chiefs would have a pick at 95. They will pick at 94 because the New England Patriots’ 77th pick will be forfeited. In addition, the NFL’s original press release erroneously gave an extra special compensatory pick to the San Francisco 49ers in Round 3. Therefore, earlier versions of this article showed Chiefs pick numbers after Round 3 to be one selection later.


Of the eight picks they’re projected in the 2021 NFL Draft, how many will the Chiefs use?
