The NFL announced to the Chiefs will not receive an compensatory picks for lost free agents from the 2013 off season. Next year, however, should be much different.

If you need a quick refresher for how the compensation pick system works, click here.

In short, Kansas City’s free agent activity last off season combine with the lack of production from the free agents they lost led to the Chiefs not earning a compensation pick. This was not a surprise.

Next year the Chiefs could receive up to four compensatory draft picks. Kansas City has already lost six free agents who could be compensation eligible while staying relatively inactive in free agency. The league caps compensation picks at four total so Kansas City won’t be recover a pick for every free agent they lost, however they have a really strong chance at earning the maximum four compensatory picks.

Kansas City has a full slate of picks available for 2015 plus up to four compensation picks. This could be a factor in if Kansas City choses to trade a 2015 draft pick for a pick in 2014. At the very least it means Kansas City is going to have a lot of picks in the 2015 draft.
