The Chiefs spent the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft on Central Michigan left tackle Eric Fisher. While Fisher played left tackle for Central Michigan, he will start his career playing right tackle for Kansas City. Reid is confident that Fisher can make the shift.
Albert's long-term future with the Chiefs remains uncertain. He got the franchise tag but has yet to work out a contract extension with the team. Meanwhile, the trade rumors continued right up through draft weekend. For now, he maintains his spot as the team's starting left tackle, where he had a reasonable amount of success in 2012.
Kansas City invested a high draft choice in Fisher, though, so it appears the team envisions him as the future at the position.
