Kevin Kietzman: How much of an idea do you have of where the Chiefs' will be going with this pick tonight?
Clark: Yeah, I do have a pretty good sense. Of course we are not picking number one overall, if we were picking number one, it would be easy - everybody in the draft room would know who were going to go with. Picking at number five, even though there has been a discussion about what the first four teams are going to do, nobody really knows. And, as a result, the staff has had to go through scenario analysis. What if this happens? What is there is a trade? What if somebody moves up in front of us?
And, in fact, we've been called about a trade, so there's so many dynamics going on it's impossible to guess what's really going to happen.
Kevin: You were called today about a trade?
Clark: We've been called this week about a trade.
Kevin: And I assume something like that is still on the table as of right now?
Clark: Yeah, absolutely.
Interesting insight from the Chiefs' owner. Will a trade actually happen, or are teams just finding out what the Chiefs' value is for the number five pick? We should have our answer very soon.
