The NFL confirmed the official seven-round selection order for the draft next month and that the Chiefs have eight picks, including four of the top 99. The Chiefs, thanks to the compensatory picks they were awarded this week, have extra choices in the third and sixth rounds.

They have no pick in the second round, having sent that one to San Francisco in the trade that brought quarterback Alex Smith.

Here are the Chiefs eight picks with round and overall number: first (1), third (63), third (96), fourth (99), fifth (134), sixth (170), sixth (204) and seventh (207).
