4. What will the Chiefs do at No. 1?
Last year, we knew weeks before the NFL Draft arrived that the Indianapolis Colts planned to take Andrew Luck at No. 1 overall. Had the Colts passed on Luck, RGIII was there waiting for them, too.
The Chiefs do not have such good fortune this year.
There is no clear-cut No. 1 pick on this year’s board, and the consensus best player available (offensive tackle Luke Joeckel) may be a luxury pick Kansas City cannot afford, if free agent tackle Branden Albert re-signs with the Chiefs.
So, the drama surrounding the top spot in the draft could last until late April, when the league heads to New York. Will Kansas City nab Joeckel? How about Geno Smith or a new quarterback for Andy Reid to mold, a la Donovan McNabb? Or is a trade-down scenario on the table?
No one knows for sure right now, and that likely includes the Chiefs’ front office.
