Chiefs' Initial Draft Order Set, Beginning with Pick No. 31

Here’s a look at the Chiefs’ initial selections in the 2021 NFL Draft

The end of the 2020-21 NFL season means we now know where the Chiefs will be picking when the 2021 NFL Draft rolls around on April 29.

As of now, Kansas City currently owns six selections in this year's draft – beginning with pick No. 31. The Chiefs could gain additional selections via the compensatory pick formula later this offseason, too. Compensatory picks are allotted to teams who lost significant free agents the year prior. Those picks kick in after the third round and can alter the number of selections in each round, so with that uncertainty in mind, we'll mark the Chiefs' exact selections in Round 4 and beyond as "TBD" for the time being.

Here's a look at the Chiefs' initial list of draft picks:

[UPDATE: The Chiefs received two compensatory picks in the 2021 Draft: No. 144 and No. 181 overall]

[UPDATE: The Chiefs traded the No. 31, No. 94 and No. 136 overall selections (in addition to a 2022 pick) in exchange for the No. 58 overall pick and offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. (and a 2022 pick) on April 26]

Round 2 - No. 58 (Acquired from Baltimore in the Orlando Brown Jr. trade)

Round 2 – No. 63

Round 4 – No. 144

Round 5 – No. 175

Round 5 – No. 181

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