What picks do the KC Chiefs have on Day 2?
By Matt Conner
Let’s take a look at the specific draft selections slated for the Kansas City Chiefs on day two of the 2023 NFL Draft.
The second day of the NFL Draft might just be the most important. While the first round gets all of the attention, it’s often the players chosen in the draft’s second and third rounds that turn into the sort of players that carry a team forward. Getting these picks right can be the difference between sustained success and sitting at home in January and that’s certainly true for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Think of the players who carried the Chiefs forward this year and then consider the rounds in which they were taken. Chris Jones was in the conversation for the best defensive player in the NFL and he was a second-round choice. Travis Kelce is the best at his position and he was a third-round choice. Creed Humphrey made his first Pro Bowl and Nick Bolton should have and both were second-round picks in the same year.
Just one year ago, the Chiefs selected Skyy Moore and Bryan Cook in the second round and both should be starting this season for the team. In addition, Leo Chenal should take on a larger role as a third-round linebacker who could aid the pass rush as well.
For this season, who will the Day 2 picks be? Well, if the Chiefs stick with their picks as scheduled, they’ll bring in two more players on the Friday night of this year’s draft. Here are the scheduled picks for the Chiefs on Day Two of the 2023 NFL Draft.
- Round 2 – No. 63 overall
- Round 3 – No. 95 overall
