The Kansas City Chiefs are set to receive three compensatory picks for the 2023 NFL Draft. The Chiefs gained picks in the third round (No. 37 overall), the sixth-round (No. 217 overall), and the seventh-round (No. 250 overall).
“Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents (“CFA”) than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks,” the NFL’s official release.
The Chiefs lost Austin Blythe, Melvin Ingram, Byron Pringle, Jarran Reed, and Charvarius Ward.
They gained Justin Reid, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. That’s where the compensatory picks come from. The Chiefs have had 30 compensatory picks since 1994.
