Chiefs trade first-round pick to San Francisco

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs traded the 28th overall pick to San Francisco on Thursday night and received the 49ers’ second-round pick along with choices in the fourth and sixth rounds in this year’s NFL draft.

The 49ers used the first-round pick on Stanford guard Joshua Garnett.

Kansas City will have the No. 37 overall pick when the draft resumes with the second and third rounds Friday night. They will also have their original second-round choice at No. 59.

The Chiefs had their third-round pick stripped as part of the penalties handed down for a tampering case last offseason. So when runs on cornerback and wide receiver took several top players off the board at their biggest positions of the need, the Chiefs made the decision to trade down.
