As for the tackle question...I hope neither.....I am hoping they re-sign their Top 5 LT, Branden Albert... trade back, and get extra picks...this would lessen the draw back of throwing away their 2nd.."anything else would be uncivilized"....but would be exactly what this franchise has done every year...why change what isn't working?
I have been predicting this will happen. Well half of it anyway, the thing you have to consider here is who will they trade with? Not sure there is anyone at the top someone has to have, Joeckel isn't so much better than his competition to be worth trading up for. Arizona for example could stay put at #7 and draft Lane Johnson and keep their other picks.
What KC might wanna do is find the pass rusher everyone wants and can't do without and talk him up as the #1 pick. Dion Jordan I think is worthy of that pick with his current ability plus alot of upside. Maybe they can get Philly to jump up a couple picks. Then the Chiefs can take something like Dee Milliner at #4 and come back in the 2nd and take Margus Hunt to give them a really good 3-4 DE, which I think is one of their 2 biggest holes (along with their 2nd CB). But they might also consider Shariff Floyd for a 3-4 DE, of course they might be a bit gunshy since Dorsey and Jackson haven't really panned out as big DE/DT's moving to 3-4 DE's.
