Poll: Who is your preference for the No. 1 pick?

The Chiefs have "earned" the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, as everyone here on AP already knows. Surprisingly, we don't have as many holes on our roster as last year's 2-14 record would suggest. (I may just be way too optimistic about my Chiefs) So without further ado, I present to you a quick breakdown of MY top 5 draft prospects in the 2013 draft.

1. Dion Jordan, 3-4 OLB/4-3 DE, Oregon

Dion Jordan spent 3 years at Oregon, one of them serving as a reserve DE. Throughout the entirety of his college career, he racked up 14.5 sacks, 121 tackles (73 solo), and 29 TFL. Jordan is widely admired for his freakish athletic ability and his excellence in pass coverage, being able to hold his own against anyone from a overpowering TE to a speedy slot receiver, though some may argue his best feat is getting pressure on the opposing QB. He ran a 4.54 40, and has great size, standing in at 6'6", 248 lbs.

2. Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah

Star Lotulelei was considered the number one prospect entering this year's draft earlier in the season. Star is slowly trying to take those honors back after his inability to perform at the NFL combine due to an apparent heart condition that turned out to be false. He played 3 years at Utah, getting 7 sacks, 107 tackles (48 solo), and 21.5 TFL. Lotulelei weighs in at 311 lbs, while standing at 6'2".

3. Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

After releasing E. Winston and potentially drawing up a scenario to trade Branden Albert, many people are 110% sure that we will take either Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher with the first pick. While I certainly don't agree with creating a hole on your roster just so you have an excuse to take an O-Lineman with the top pick, if it comes down to Joeckel or Fisher, I would take Fisher every time. Fisher is a mauler, with a ton of room to grow. He has way more upside than Joeckel who I believe has already peaked. Fisher has great size - 6'7", 306 lbs, and he could certainly add more weight to his frame to make him even more intimidating than he already is. And did I mention he ran a 5.03 40?

4. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

I know, I know, that flight has already taken off. I'll be the first to admit, I had a huge mancrush on Geno Smith after seeing his 8 TD, 600+ yd performance against Baylor earlier this season. While I was not too fond of giving up the 34th pick in the draft in return for Alex Smith, it is what it is. I think Alex Smith will do just fine in Andy Reid's WCO, however I think many Chiefs fans, including myself, wanted to see us draft and groom our very own franchise QB. Geno ran a 4..59 40, the fastest of all quarterbacks this year and possesses the ability to make plays on the ground. Geno is a bit undersized at 6'2", 218 lbs.

5. Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

5. Trade Down

You may be asking yourself, "What about Dee Milliner, Shariff Floyd, Luke Joeckel or Ziggy Ansah?!" Well, while they all are GOOD prospects, none of them, in my honest opinion, are worthy of the No. 1 pick. If worse comes to worst, the Chiefs should take any reasonable opportunity to trade down, likely with the Eagles, Cardinals or Bills.
