Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was known for making several draft days trades when he was a part of the New England Patriots organization, and he might decide to move around in the draft this year as well.
Here are the most likely trade up or down scenarios that the Chiefs could have in each of the seven rounds of April's draft.
Trade Pick for An Additional Third-Round Pick
The Chiefs badly need an adequate DT to help plug the middle of their defensive line.
They could get one in the first round of this year's draft if they elect to trade down for Memphis star Dontari Poe.
He is a big, physical defensive tackle at 6'5, 350lbs, and did a great job of blowing up the middle of opposing offensive lines in college.
Of course, Poe will more than likely be available for KC's original pick of either 11th or 12th overall, but he doesn't deserve to be taken that high in this draft.
If they don't like anyone when their first selection comes up, it's very possible that the Chiefs could trade down and take Poe later in the round.
Trade Pick for Third-Round Pick
For the last two seasons, the Chiefs have been starving for a play-making ILB to pair with Pro-Bowler Derrick Johnson.
They might just be able to get one in April's draft with Arizona State's Vontaze Burfict.
He picked up 228 tackles in three years with the Sun Devils, delivering many big plays from his inside linebacker position as well.
Of course, they would probably have to trade up in the second round to get him, but many believe that he would be worth the risk.
Trade Pick for Fifth-Round Pick
Going into this offseason, the Chiefs knew that one of the positions that they needed to upgrade for next year was left guard.
There are several talented guards in this year's draft class, including Wisconsin's Kevin Zeitler.
Zeitler played mainly RG in college, but is versatile enough to play either guard position at the next level.
Trading up to land Zeitler in the third round of April's draft could be a viable option to pursue for Kansas City.
Trade Pick for Fifth-Round Pick
With two tight end sets becoming more and more popular these days in the NFL, it's time for the Chiefs to go that route as well.
Michael Egnew was an All-American tight end at Missouri and has one of the better set of hands out of any of the TEs in his rookie class.
Since his production levels decreased in his senior season, there's a good chance that he will drop to the fourth round of April's draft.
That is where KC can trade down to grab this 6'6" pass-catching weapon to pair with second-year TE Tony Moeaki on their offense for years to come.

One of the biggest needs on the Chiefs offense this offseason is their backup running back.
With star RB Jamaal Charles coming back from an injury this season, KC needs a bruiser to compliment Charles in the backfield.
They could have their man with Mississippi State star Vick Ballard.
Ballard rushed for over 2,100 yards and 29 touchdowns in his last two seasons for the Bulldogs and he could be available in the later part of the fifth round if KC decides to trade down for him.

Wide receiver isn't one of the biggest needs on current Chiefs roster.
In fact, it's one of their many strengths as a team right now.
That being said, A.J. Jenkins could be a big-time sleeper at the wideout position in this rookie class, and if the Chiefs were to lose Pro Bowl WR Dwayne Bowe to free agency, Jenkins could really help this receiving corps next season and beyond.
Will he be there in the early part of the sixth round for the Chiefs to take him?
Trade Pick for Compensatory Pick in '12 NFL Draft
There's a possibility that the Chiefs could lose starting CB Brandon Carr to free agency next month.
If that is the case, then Arizona's Trevin Wade could be a solid replacement for Carr if KC elects to trade up for him in the last round of the draft.
He would be a great value pick for the seventh round and he could be the Kendrick Lewis of this draft for Kansas City.
Wade battled injuries last season with the Wildcats, but he possesses the skills to be a shutdown corner in the NFL.
