Chiefs GM John Dorsey believes there is value in the 2nd–4th rounds of the draft

The Kansas City Chiefs traded their first round pick to the San Francisco 49ers to gain additional picks within the first 100 players that will be selected in the early rounds of the NFL Draft.

The Chiefs traded the 28th overall pick and a seventh-round pick to for the 49ers second (No. 37 overall), fourth (No. 105 overall) and sixth-round (No. 178 overall) picks.

When the draft started, the Chiefs had two picks in the top 125.  They’ll now enter day two of the draft with three selections from 37 to 105.

“Well, it gives you a shot at real players. That’s kind of what it does. It gives you options and shots and real players,” said GM John Dorsey late Thursday night. “Again, you target the draft, you think it’s into the second, third and fourth round, so now you have accumulated more picks. So, let’s go work it now.”
