Drafting On the Numbers

The AFL Draft, the AFL-NFL Draft and now 45 years of the NFL Draft as we know it today – all have played a part in the fortunes of the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the 2015 NFL Draft, the Chiefs will have 10 selections at their disposal, a number that could go up or down depending on trade action. But it’s the most choices they’ve had since the 2008 Draft when they had 12 picks, including six of the first 82 players selected. That was the draft that brought Glenn Dorsey, Branden Albert, Brandon Flowers and Jamaal Charles to Kansas City.
