Chiefs still Researching Four Players who Could go First in Draft

John Dorsey

In a draft that is said to lack the star power that NFL drafts have had in the past, number 1 overall isn’t exactly a coveted spot. But with the abysmal 2-14 season the Kansas City Chiefs had, they find themselves at number 1 and trying to figure out what direction they want to go in. The addition of quarterback Alex Smith perhaps takes quarterback off the board, but there are still a number of ways the team can go in. New General Manager John Dorsey was talking at his pre-draft news conference and let it be known that there are multiple players the team is considering.

You still have to give yourself some options,” Dorsey said via Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. “What you kind of do now is just kind of see how these four guys play and kind of watch the games as they’re played. You understand them as people, now watch them play their respective position. When that curtain is raised on Thursday, we’ll be ready. But right now it’s still ongoing, and you never know what’s going to happen.”

Almost all of the mock drafts around have the Chiefs taking either Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel  or Central Michigan left tackle Eric Fisher. Dorsey commented on the possibility of drafting one of these top prospects as well.

“They’re both really fine football players,” Dorsey said. “This year the offensive line position has some true prospects in it.”
