A long, long, LONG time... in the first round you get 15 minutes to pick. If everybody used all of their alloted time the first round would take 8 hours. Usually it doesn't take that long, but the first round along will probably be 5-6 hours at least. If the Chiefs stay at 15 and don't move, they'll probably pick 3-4 hours into the draft.

The only way that gets thrown off is if the somebody does not get their pick up there in time, then they can get passed up and usually everybody else would start running their picks up there in a hurry. That happened two years ago, the Vikes let the clock run out and 4 or 5 teams ran to the podium in succession and made picks and moved up a spot in the draft before the Vikings got up there and finally made their pick and order was restored. That literally cut over an hour off the first round... if you think about it, 15 minutes = 4 picks an hour.

Well that almost happened to us when we drafted Ryan Sims in 2002, but I don't think it was our fault. The Cowboys had the 6 pick, Minn 7th, and KC 8th. The Vikings wanted Sims, so we traded up with Dallas. Apparently Jerry Jones got stalled up on the phone with another possible deal and about let the clock run out, and Minnesota tried running a card up to the podium with Sims name on it, but we officially got the trade and pick in time ahead of them.
