With compensatory picks having been released, the 2020 NFL Draft order has been finalized.
The NFL announced a total of 32 compensatory selections on Tuesday, marking the last bridge to cross before teams in the league know exactly when they are picking in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Kansas City’s 2020 draft picks
- 1st round – No. 32 overall
- 2nd round – No. 63 (from San Francisco)
- 3rd round – No. 96
- 4th round – No. 138
- 5th round – No. 177
Where did the extra picks go?
- The Seattle Seahawks will pick 64th overall in the second round as a result of the Chiefs’ trade for Frank Clark.
- The Indianapolis Colts will pick 211th overall in the sixth round with the Chiefs’ pick, as traded to them by the New York Jets, who acquired the pick from Kansas City for linebacker Darron Lee. The Colts traded cornerback Nate Hairston to the Jets for the pick.
- Finally, the Miami Dolphins will pick 246th overall in the seventh round as a result of the Chiefs’ trade for safety Jordan Lucas.
Can the Chiefs still gain or lose picks?
The Chiefs can indeed gain more picks by trading down from any of their draft positions before (and throughout) the draft weekend. They also have the ability to trade players, or — in the case of Chris Jones, who is expected to be franchise tagged — their rights to a player for picks, as we saw the team do with Dee Ford just last year. The Chiefs could also lose picks if they decide to trade them for a player they like on another team or wish to trade up during the draft.
