Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes has a new blindside tackle, but it’s coming at the expense of his side forfeiting their first round pick during Thursday’s NFL draft.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens exchanged a handful of draft picks to bring two-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr from to Kansas City.
Kansas City gets:
🏈 OT Orlando Brown
🏈 2021 second-round pick (No. 58)
🏈 2022 6th round pick.
🏈 2021 first-round pick (No. 31)
🏈 third-round pick (No. 94)
🏈 fourth-round pick (No. 136)
🏈 2022 fifth-round pick

Kansas City will receive Brown, a 2021 second-round pick and a sixth-round pick in next year’s NFL draft. Their AFC foes will get the Chiefs’ No. 31 pick this year, a third and fourth-round selection and a fifth-round pick in the 2022 draft.
It’s safe to say the defending AFC champions were serious about bringing help for their franchise guy, and it look as though the pieces are slowly coming together for general manager Brett Veach and head coach Andy Reid.
