The Morning Fix: Draft Week Edition

Even the current Chiefs have legacies in punter Dustin Colquitt, whose father Craig punted for two Super Bowl championship teams in Pittsburgh, and fullback Tim Castille, whose father, Jeremiah, was a defensive back for Denver and Tampa Bay.

Taylor, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound senior at UNC last season, visited five NFL teams in preparing for the draft — the Minnesota Vikings, the Houston Texans, the San Francisco 49ers, the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks.

He had private workouts in Chapel Hill with the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cleveland Browns and a team that asked that he not reveal its identity.

Kansas City, Branden Albert, left tackle: There has been talk that the Chiefs could grab a left tackle in the first round and move Albert to right tackle. In March, Kansas City coach Todd Haley said 2011 is a big year for the 2008 first-round pick.

I could see the inconsistent Albert getting another year to prove himself. If a left tackle available at No. 21 that is high on the Chiefs’ list, Albert could be on the move.
