Chiefs Receive Three Compensatory Picks in the 2023 NFL Draft

The Chiefs now possess 10 selections in the upcoming NFL Draft

The Kansas City Chiefs received three compensatory picks in the 2023 NFL Draft on Thursday, pushing their overall total to 10 total selections.

Compensatory picks are allotted to teams that lost significant free agents the year prior and are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The newly acquired selections are in the third round (No. 100 overall), sixth round (No. 217 overall) and seventh round (No. 250 overall).

It's worth noting, however, that the third-round pick – which is a "Special Compensatory Selection" – was sent to the New York Giants in exchange for wide receiver Kadarius Toney last season, meaning that the Chiefs essentially netted two compensatory picks on Thursday.

Here's a look at the Chiefs' updated allotment of draft selections this year.

Round 1: No. 31 overall

Round 2: No. 63 overall

Round 3: No. 95 overall

Round 4 (via Miami): No. 122 overall

Round 4: No. 134 overall

Round 5: No. 166 overall

Round 6 (via Miami): No. 178 overall

Round 6 (Compensatory Pick): No. 217 overall

Round 7: No. 249 overall

Round 7 (Compensatory Pick): No. 250 overall

The 2023 NFL Draft kicks off on April 27 in Kansas City and will continue over the course of three days.
