Chiefs Draft Options Are "Wide Open" Right Now

New, comments

Michael Lombardi appeared on NFL Network last week discussing the options available for the teams in the top five of the NFL Draft.

Lombardi previously worked with Scott Pioli in Cleveland, and has correctly predicted a few of the Chiefs biggest moves in the Pioli era (including being the first to say the Chiefs are "in love" with Tyson Jackson), so his words could hold a little more weight than others when it comes to the Chiefs.

"I think the landscape is wide open with the Kansas City Chiefs," he said. "They can go in any direction whatsoever because they need help on the offensive line, they could use another defensive line, the secondary...I think he's in the perfect spot to pick the best player available."

BPA as they call it is what Pioli and Bill Belichick resorted to regularly so that's the most likely option. Lombardi also says he could see the Chiefs moving Branden Albert to guard and replacing him with a left tackle at the top of the draft.

Meanwhile, NFLN's Jason LaCanfora suggests the Chiefs will find a defensive player -- any spot along the front seven needs help, he says -- to help change the face of the franchise.

So basically your draft update is that the Chiefs could pick anyone. Great update, right?
