A total of 37 compensatory draft selections in the 2021 NFL Draft have been awarded to 17 teams, the NFL announced today. The Chiefs will receive two additional picks, #145 overall in the fourth round and #182 in the fifth round.

The fourth-rounder comes as a result of defensive back Kendall Fuller signing with the Washington Football Team. The fifth-rounder comes from defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah signing with the Miami Dolphins.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better¬†compensatory free agents¬†(‚ÄúCFA‚ÄĚ) than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive¬†compensatory draft picks.

The compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through sixth rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.  The formula was developed by the NFL management council.  Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.  No club may receive more than four compensatory picks in any one year.  If a club qualifies for more than four compensatory picks after offsetting each CFA lost by each CFA gained of an equal or higher value, the four highest remaining selections will be awarded to the club.
