NFL Draft rumors: Chiefs decide on No. 1 pick, trade calls still coming in

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their decision on who they will pick in the 2013 NFL Draft ... but they're not telling anyone. They're waiting to hear from more teams about a possible trade for the top pick.

Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey said last month that the Chiefs would know who they'll pick four days before the start time of the 2013 NFL Draft. It took a little longer than that but Dorsey tells ESPN that the Chiefs now know who they will be taking No. 1 overall.

But of course they won't be telling us exactly who that is.

The late momentum belongs to Central Michigan's Eric Fisher. The last several weeks, however, have been focused on Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel. It's unclear which one the Chiefs will pick but it's widely believed that the decision was down to one of those two players. Mike Mayock, Adam Teicher and Jay Glazer are among those who think the pick will be Fisher.

The Chiefs will continue to take calls on possible suitors for the No. 1 pick so trading back is still a possibility.

Dorsey also told ESPN that the Branden Albert situation will not deter the Chiefs from selecting the best available player, even if that is an offensive tackle. The Chiefs and Dolphins continue to negotiate a possible trade for Albert, though it's unclear if that will get done.

Complete coverage of the Albert rumors are here.
