Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs found themselves in an interesting situation, as they held the No. 1 pick in the draft but didn’t pick again until the third round. This year the Chiefs have the same sort of wild nature to their draft order and are more than likely going to pass over the opportunity to just take the picks as they come and will try to move around the draft.
According to ESPN.com Chiefs writer Adam Teicher, the Chiefs will probably be looking into trading down in the draft to get some more picks.
The Chiefs have only six draft picks and none in the second round. That gives them just one pick in the top 86. That’s an unenviable spot for a team that would prefer to build through the draft and that’s particularly true this year because it’s a deep draft at most positions. That’s why I think regardless of their history they would look to move down a few spots and gain an extra pick or two
The answer came from a question posed by a reader who wanted to know if the draft history of Andy Reid or John Dorsey would have an effect on the Chiefs wishy-washy draft positioning.
As Teicher points out, the history of the two is irrelevant as all that matters is where you think you can get the guys you want. The Chiefs moving back in the draft to pick up a second round pick is wise and would likely be the strategy of just about anyone.
