Since the NFL began giving out compensatory picks in 1994, the Kansas City Chiefs have been awarded 15 picks, which ranks 25th in the NFL.
The Baltimore Ravens have been awarded the most during that time with 41.
Here's an explanation of what compensatory draft picks are:
Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.
Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.

Last year in free agency, the Chiefs lost Branden Albert, Geoff Schwartz, Jon Asamoah, Tyson Jackson, Dexter McCluster, Akeem Jordan, Kendrick Lewis and Quintin Demps.
They brought in Vance Walker, Joe Mays, Jeff Linkenbach and Chris Owens.
The compensatory picks for the upcoming draft will be announced at the NFL Annual Meeting in Arizona.
Of all the compensatory picks, the most famous is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Arguably the best postseason quarterback in NFL history with four Super Bowl championships, he was a nice selection for the Patriots in the sixth-round of the 2000 draft.
Linebacker Mike Vrabel (Pittsburgh, Round 3, Pick No. 91 overall, 1997) and receiver Derrick Alexander (Cleveland, Round 1, Pick No. 29 overall, 1994) are two notable compensatory picks that played for the Chiefs at some point in their careers.
Vrabel had 101 tackles for the Chiefs in his two seasons in Kansas City (2009-10). Alexander spent four seasons with the Chiefs (1998-2001) and still holds the all-time Chiefs record for yards receiving in a season with 1,391 in 2000.
Here are the 15 compensatory draft selections for the Chiefs since 1994:
The two highest awarded picks were in 2005 and 2013, Dustin Colquitt (No. 99 overall) and Knile Davis (No. 96 overall), and they're the only two of the 15 that are still on the Chiefs roster.
Here's a list of how many compensatory picks each NFL team has been awarded since 1994.
