The Kansas City Chiefs are (almost) one week into free agency. They have lost some players and signed some others. They will likely add more players but the pool of potential starters seems to be shrinking.

This is a good time to see what everyone is thinking with the Chiefs first round pick.

After the first few days of free agency, I was leaning towards the Chiefs 23rd overall pick being an offensive lineman. Knowing what Andy Reid with the Eagles and John Dorsey with the Packers have done in the draft in past years, offensive line or defensive line seemed like a good guess. The Chiefs then signed DT Vance Walker, who looks like the new starting defensive end. So offensive line seemed like the most likely position.

But there's also receiver. The Chiefs were about to sign Emmanuel Sanders, which suggests they feel receiver is an area that can be upgraded. You don't try to sign Sanders if you think you're fine at receiver, right?

What about safety? The Chiefs were loosely connected to Antoine Bethea, who later signed with the 49ers. Are they waiting until the draft to pick a safety? Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Calvin Pryor and Jimmie Ward are often mentioned in first round talks.

So make your vote. Which position will the Chiefs address with their first round pick?
