There has been an incredible amount of speculation about the Kansas City Chiefs trading up in the first round of the 2023 NFL draft.
Part of that speculation is fueled by the draft taking place in Kansas City and the team’s desire to “make a splash.” Some of it has come from the fact that the Chiefs have been connected to a number of wide receivers during to pre-draft process and that the position group isn’t considered deep. There’s also the fact that they’ve reportedly done their homework on potential trade partners well ahead of time.
Naturally, some speculation comes from the fact that they hold the final pick in Round 1, and moving up seems like the logical choice when you have three top-100 picks and 10 total picks in the draft.
There hasn’t been much talk about trading down, outside of Brett Veach’s pre-draft press conference where he spoke on the possibility.
Ultimately, it feels like it’s only a matter of time before Brett Veach makes some sort of trade in the 2023 NFL draft. Last season, the Chiefs traded up in the first round to acquire CB Trent McDuffie. They also traded back from pick No. 50 to receive picks No. 54 (Skyy Moore) and No. 158 (Darian Kinnard). Veach hasn’t been shy about making trades if the value is right.
