The Godfather Gil Brandt answered some questions on Twitter today and this one right is of interest to KC Chiefs fans.
.@EnK1982 Robinson, Matthews, Fisher, Joeckel, Lewan, Johnson ... in that order. All very good players.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
That would be Auburn's Greg Robinson and Texas A&M's Jake Matthews (who comes from a good family). Both are projected to be top 10 picks in the 2014 NFL Draft. Last year, Fisher went No. 1, Luke Joeckel went No. 2 and Lane Johnson went No. 4. Brandt also believes Michigan's Taylor Lewan will be a top 10 pick, which means he would probably put Fisher somewhere in the top 10 of this draft. Hopefully the Chiefs end up with a good player either way.
A few other thoughts from Gil Brandt's Q&A today....
About Johnny Manziel falling to the Chiefs
No trepidation. Wouldn't want to be GM who passes. RT @ByNateDavis: Mayock: "I am a Manziel guy, and I say that with great trepidation."— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014

Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo ahead of Teddy Bridgewater?
.@PapaColli Possibility Garoppolo goes ahead of Bridgewater. I know some teams have those guys flipped. Might be mistake.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
Late round stars to be found.
Safest picks in the draft -- Khalil Mack and Jake Matthews
.@greenbeansjn Safest picks are Matthews and Mack. Pedigree on Matthews' side. All numbers, traits say they have best chance at next level.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
Run after the catch ability seems important for the Chiefs.
.@ksmithdv Several. Beckham, Evans and Watkins are special in RAC category.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 29, 2014
Could the Raiders trade back from No. 5?
