At this point we can not afford Branden Albert. We have 4 million in cap room and need 7 million for our draft. The options of who we draft are really dependent on the Albert trade, if no one wants to trade for him we have to cut someone else and we'll probably pick up Dion Jordan or Star, if we do get someone to trade for Albert then we draft Joeckel it's as simple as that, no one wants our first because we are dumb and gave up too much for Alex Smith for him not to be the starter and on top of that gave 3 million a year for an undrafted qb who has never started a game.
I personally think our current GM is going to be kicking himself after paying so much for a QB who many argue is the second coming of Matt Cassel, and getting rid of a very solid LT in Branden Albert for a second round pick. I'm not sure this is as dumb as trading Tony G for a second but still very dumb. Our O-line last year was a strength I kind of understand cutting Winston because of all the penalties but now your getting rid of your LT too, Come on Dorsey! I understand we were 2-14 last year but we also had one of the most dominant running games in the NFL and yes JC is a beast but he had a lot of help from his offensive line, who blocked their asses off for him.
As a Chiefs fan we all know what we needed to do, and he has done a lot of those things he replaced Dorsey with a cheaper guy, got a solid CB, got a solid TE (over paid him a lot but good pick up), I'm not even mad about picking up Alex Smith or Chase Daniels but not both of them,, we all wanted a reall QB someone that is gonna come in and kick ass not someone that's gonna manage the game while JC runs for 200+ we already had that.
