The 2024 NFL Draft is upon us.

Over the next three nights, 257 players will hear their names called and have the opportunity to prove themselves to the team that drafted them.

The Kansas City Chiefs have seven of the 257 draft picks. Here are their selections.

Round 1, Pick 28 (From BUF): Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas
The Chiefs traded picks 32, 95, and 221 in exchange for 28, 133, and 248. Pick 28 resulted in the new fastest 40-yard dash time in Xavier Worthy. Running in 4.21 seconds, Worthy brings blazing speed to Kansas City.

Round 2, Pick 63 (From SF): Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU
The Chiefs traded picks 64 and 173 with 63 and 211 in return. With pick 63, the Chiefs selected BYU tackle Kingsley Suamataia. Both sides were big needs, with KC not re-signing Donovan Smith, and Jawaan Taylor needing to improve. The hope is that Kingsley will fill one of those holes.

Round 4, Pick 131: Jared Wiley, TE, TCU
With the first pick the Chiefs kept of their own, the team selected __ from __. Options were thin, as a lot of TEs, RBs, WRs, and CBs had already gone off the board. But, at 6’6, 249 pounds, Wiley will fit in great with the likes of Travis Kelce, Noah Gray, and Irv Smith Jr.

Round 4, Pick 133 (From BUF): Jaden Hicks, S, Washington St.
With the 133 pick, the Chiefs took some safety help. While the room was already deep, you can never have enough defensive backs.

Round 5, Pick 159: Hunter Nourzad, C, Penn St.
When drafting on Day 3, sometimes picks are for the future. I believe this pick is just that. Next season, Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith are on contract years. There is next to no way the Chiefs keep both. Nourzad has played RT, LG, and C in 41 career games. He’s the versatile OL the Chiefs need.

Round 6, Pick 211 (From SF): Kamal Hadden, CB, Tennessee
As stated when talking about Jaden Hicks, you can never have too much DB depth. Hadden led Tennessee in INTs over the last two seasons, compiling six over his career, as well as 12 pass breakups.

Round 7, Pick 248 (From BUF): C.J. Hanson, G, Holy Cross
I’m really not sure how to feel about this pick. There were bigger needs on the roster than Guard, such as RB or DT. Kendall Milton from USC sticks out to me as someone I would have taken. However, picks for the future are always a possibility.
