The Kansas City Chiefs Tackle position for 2010 seems to be in flux. The Chiefs might deem it worthy the #5 pick in the 2010 draft. The Chiefs also might deem the position worth a traded down pick position if Scott Pioli can work some magic. It is also and probably will be addressed in some way in this draft. The Chiefs have instituted a change in scheme in the second half of the 2009 season with a Zone-Blocking type O-line. All of the current players have now had some time in that scheme and any new-comers would be expected to contribute also.
The whole draft depends on the Chiefs' management decision on Branden Albert as a Long-term LT. If Branden stays then the Chiefs will move to lesser positions of need. If not it would be a tossup on LT or NT based on Fit of the players at the draft position we ultimately pick from. It might also depend on the availabilty of a Player to fit the schemes at the 2a pick. Neither NT or LT is a position easy or cheap to fill in FA.
"The best fit for Bulaga would be on a zone blocking team in the NFL, because of his familiarity with the system. "

Other than the skilled positions of LT and Center, most O-Lineman are interchangeable if they fit the scheme. Is it possible to draft the best Center to play a Guard spot? Happens all the time. Would it be better to draft a possible RT and move him to a Guard spot? Again happens all the time. Draft for the best possible outcome and the Guards fall into place. Happens all the time.
