Veach has performed five draft-day trades as Chiefs GM. In every instance, he was moving up in the draft order to select a prospect.

In 2018, their first scheduled selection was originally the 54th overall pick. However, Veach decided to trade that pick and the 78th overall selection for pick No. 46 and a third-round slot: the 100th overall pick. They used pick No. 46 to select the aforementioned Speaks.

Later in that draft, Veach traded pick No. 86 and No. 122 to move up to the 75th overall selection and take defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi. Then, he sent away two seventh-round picks to make an additional selection in the sixth-round: offensive guard Khalil McKenzie.

To make their first selection in 2019, they traded pick No. 61 and a fifth-round selection to move up five spots in the second-round and take wide receiver Mecole Hardman.

In 2020, they traded a future sixth-round pick to add a seventh-round pick after initially using all of their 2020 selections. They drafted cornerback BoPete Keyes with that pick.

Not the best history of trading up. Nnadi was good, Hardman is debatable, Keyes is too soon to tell but I'm leaning negative so far. Speaks and McKenzie obviously didn't work out.
