Chiefs’ NFL Draft Needs 2013: 1st Edition


What a wild off-season so far for the Chiefs! Clark Hunt showed up in a big way, putting to rest a lot of talk about him. Agree or disagree with his moves, but we can no longer call him a cheap or disinterested owner. About though moves, though. The best move without a doubt is the hiring of John Dorsey. Along with Tom Gamble and Marc Ross, Dorsey was in the top tier of GM candidates. I am thrilled with his hire. He should do a good job stocking the Chiefs with talent. I like the Andy Reid hire. He has a great reputation as a developer of quarterbacks and running offenses in general. However, he hasn’t done well without a good defensive coordinator, like Jim Johnson. Bob Sutton as defensive coordinator doesn’t exactly thrill me, but I am willing to give Reid the benefit of doubt….. for now.

It’s easy to overreact to a bad situation. The last regime was extreme in one way, so we have to flip to being the opposite. However, I do like what I am hearing from the new staff. Gone are the days of one way. They have talked about developing schemes that fit the talent of the players. That, Addicts is a breath of fresh air.

Now that the dust has cleared a bit, I am going to go through in some detail the draft needs I have set over at DraftTek. Comments of course are appreciated. For the purposes of this analysis, we have to make some assumptions. I am assuming that Albert, Colquitt and Bowe are back and Glenn Dorsey is gone. Should that change, I will adjust the needs.

Primary need: QB

Readers who have read my work over the last few years remember that I hate to list a single need as the primary need. Instead, I prefer to group needs in tiers and select the best player available in that group. However, circumstances this year do not permit that approach. Anyone watching the Chiefs this year understands that quarterback play is the biggest problem on the Chiefs. It’s not even close to the other needs.

Secondary needs: WR (speed), SILB, CB, FS

Even if Bowe stays, the Chiefs need another wide receiver, preferably one that can stretch the field. Baldwin has been a huge disappointment and is on his last chance with the Chiefs. Strong inside linebacker can use an upgrade. Since that position is on the sidelines about 50% of the defensive snaps, I am not sure how much the Chiefs will invest here. If good value is sitting there in rounds two through five, you can see the Chiefs pulling the trigger. Cornerback is a round two to three need. The Chiefs never really filled the spot vacated by Brandon Carr. Free Safety is another secondary need. I like Kendrick Lewis, but he is hurt way too often.

Tertiary needs: TE, G/C, DE, WILB

As much as I like Tony Moeaki, he is another one who is hurt way too often. The Chiefs have some decent cheap options at DE, but bringing in competition is a good idea. The offensive line has little depth with Ryan Lilja retiring. Another guard/center is needed. Inside linebacker has little depth with the death of Jovan Belcher.

That is my first draft of the draft season. Free agent signings will change these needs. I suspect we will see the Chiefs pursue players from the Eagles and Packers, since those players are well known by Reid and Dorsey. It would not be shocking to see the Chiefs sign a backup vet QB, backup G/C, WR, SILB and RB.

OK Addicts, that’s my take. What is your needs list?

    I don’t think we should focus on TE more than WR, I think Baldwin will be fine now that he has guys coaching him that actually know something about the passing game, it seamed like most plays to him where plays he was expected to just go up and make a play on the ball like only the top wide outs in the league can make, still think Steve can be a threat down field and in the screen game and see dex and Devon picking up bigger roles with Andy most likely bring that screen game to KC, TE should be addressed due to injury I like tony but he has had trouble staying healthy and I think rotating him with a second guy would help, same think with Lewis and I think a second cb is a must

    • http://twitter.com/OneMoreAnomaly Brandon Grier

      I agree with you about the receivers, we are pretty good there but it wouldn’t bad to pick up another guy. And don’t forget we still have kevin boss and before he got hurt he played well for us. But we do definitely need some depth in the secondary and on the o line.

      • Kyle ferguson

        Ya I’m assuming he is done with his concussion problems would rather sign a vet than draft maybe a guy that’s worked with Reid and knows his system that can help the rest of the group, also think we need a good back up RB, does Andy bring a guy in, do we keep Payton, or can Gray step up and be the guy, I think he has good vision and may not be the the fastest guy in the league but he can hit the hole pretty quick a lot to think about this offseason will be an interesting one for sure

      • http://twitter.com/Chr1sG3 chris grier

        The only receiver that i would be ok with picking up would be Geno’s favorite target Bailey. Other than that there are too many other positions of importance. cornerback/safety, and both offensive and defensive lines need depth. I think we address most everything else in FA.

        • KCMikeG

          He should be the only WR we should draft.

    • Doc

      I’m with you Kyle. Baldwin has not had a decent chance. His first year he had the lockout and was not adequately coached. The second year he was coached by an inadeqaute staff. Let’s see what he can do this year and then make the eval on him. QB is a glaring need, but without a line and quality receivers he will be nothing more than a Croyle or Cassel or Quinn. Albert is rehabbing a back injury and back injuries for lineman usually spell the end of their carreers. Lija retiring doesn’t help but I am optimistic about Allen and Bailey. Hudson has to prove he can come back after a year off. That leaves Asomoah and Winston to protect our #1 pick QB (if that is the way it plays out in the draft). We also run the risk of getting Charles injured from having to stay in to block as well. SILB is the most important to take with the first pick, then a QB in the second, a CB in the third and then see who is available after that. Otherwise, I am comfortable letting Dorsey take the best available player to rebuild our Chiefs to greatness. I just hope it is not a bunch of PHI or GB cast offs coming here ala Pioli years.

      • Kyle ferguson

        Don’t forget about Baldwin missing half the season with a hand injury his rookie season

      • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

        A lot of WRs didn’t really get traction for a couple of years. Look at Crabtree out in San Fran. Blackmon is taking some time to develop as well. One thing for sure, the quickest way to develop a receiver is to give him a good QB.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Kyle:

      I am confused.WR is listed above TE on the needs tier. Are you suggesting it’s not a need at all?

      I hope you are right about Baldwin, but my hope for him is disappearing.

      • Kyle ferguson

        I don’t think the problem is a lack of talent I think it’s a lack of coaching so if you come in and get these guys working hard and develop them I think it’s a strong core I think TE should be a bigger focuse because of injury at the position I don’t think boss will be back and I wouldn’t expect tony to play 16 games next year with his track recorded of injurys, lets give Baldwin a year with a real qb and under a coach that will actually teach him the ends and outs of the position

      • Calchiefsfan

        Our offensive coaching was so bad last year I think we’re all wondering what can Baldwin, Breaston, Manieri, McCluster and Wylie do with a good quarterback and good coaching. I didn’t mention Bowe or Moeaki because we already know what they are capable of.

        • KCMikeG

          True. We are deeper at TE than we have ever been with Cosby and Rucker with Moeaki, Boss and Maneri. In addition to your thoughts on WR I think Bellamy, Newsome and Hemingway have potential. I wonder if Breaston has anything left or if it was a personality thing. I was seriously disappointed in his effort blocking time and again I saw him watching his guy tackle the ball carrier.

          • Calchiefsfan

            We can always go after Mike Wallace in free agency if the coaching doesn’t think Baldwin and Breaston are going to work out. A Bowe Wallace combination could be lethal.

          • superman_25_58

            I like the idea of Bowe and Gennings with Mccluster/Wylie in the slot myself but would take Gennings/Wallace either one

          • KCMikeG

            Word is McCluster will go back to RB. Reid will show all why he was worth a #2 pick.

          • KCMikeG

            Wallace/Wylie bakes or takes them deep and Bowe, Moeaki, Baldwin, Boss work underneath Oh and don’t forget Charles/McCluster have so much more space to work = #1 YAC in NFL. How could Geno not be successful? Lethal combination.

  • Joe Myers

    every one keeps saying their are no good QB in the draft but you got Colin one game away from the SB, willison two games away from confetti Rogers was suppose to just have a great career Brady was took in the fourth round our biggest need is qb and I think Geno smith could run Reid off as good as McNabb if not better I think if we dont bring in smith NOT Flynn NOT Flynn the chiefs could be a pime sleeper in the coming season

    • Jim Harper

      Did anyone else understand this?

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I think he wants Geno and not Matt Flynn. Some more punctuation would have helped.

    • cyberry

      I think that’s the misconception, i hear worthy of the first pick of the draft..The first pick should start for day one and be an immediate impact. Become the/one of faces of the franchise. Apparently the analyst’s and scouts think the quarterbacks need some guidance and time to hone in there skills.. There is nothing wrong with a little tutoring..

      • superman_25_58

        I haven’t heard of any scouts say that all of the qb’s need to hone in their skills just analysts and they are never right it seems like. Every year the analyst say things about the qb’s just like they did Cam Newton, unless it’s obviously quite clear like “Luck and RG3″. Who didn’t know these qb’s would go 1 & 2? As far as after the OBVIOUS (or how ever you spell it), I DON’T THINK THEY REALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHO WILL BE GOOD AND WHO WON’T (R. WILSON “TOO SMALL, AND KAPERNICK NEVER HAD A CHANCE IN THEIR EYES EITHER). Let’s be real if Geno’s team was half as good as him, Geno would of won the heisman and every 1 would of been on his NUTZ and he would be the undoubted #1 pick! So Geno put up arguably the best numbers coming out of college and just bc the rest of his team besides (WR’s) was WELL below average and couldn’t help keep him in the heisman HYPE bc of the win/loss record, that he doesn’t deserve the #1 Pick after a 42TD/6 INT senior year, and a 98TD/21INT ratio as well as a 67.4% comp% in his CAREER………….WHAT???? I FEEL LIKE GENO AND HIS WR’S ARE LIKE THE CHIEFS TEAM THIS YEAR AND THE REST OF WV’S TEAM IS LIKE CASSLE,QUINN, AND STANZI’S SUCK WADDEDNESS LOL…JUST SAYING

  • Joe Myers

    oh and Brady Payton Rogers Eli and big been lost their bowl games some worse then others

  • http://www.facebook.com/derek.hetu Derek Hetu

    Some things that may be forgotten when talking about the needs are the people that went on IR. Kyle McCarthy, and DeQuan Menzie will be safeties coming back. Also Kevin Boss, and Martin Rucker as tight ends. Allen Bailey will be coming back as a Defensive end as well. I also believe that closer to the end of the season a tight end was signed off the Green Bay practice squad (Demarco Crosby I believe), so he may be someone that Dorsey sees as a talent that may get a look at TE as well.

    • KCMikeG

      Excellent point! I think they all will have the chance to fill the holes and I think Moeaki comes back strong making us set at TE. He took longer than JC but just like Berry he was trending up as the season went on. He broke Tony G’s rookie records in 2010. I’ll never forget seeing “The Catch II”.

  • Danny W

    I’m not changing my train wreck avatar until we get a quarterback.

    List of needs

    1-3 Quarterback

    4 ILB opposite DJ

    4b Cornerback. I’m not sold on Arenas. Give me Tyrann Mathieu pleas in oh say the third or fourth round.

    1) Geno Smith

    2) ILB Minter out of LSU (kids a stud)

    3) Tyrann Mathieu

    3b) Marcus Lattimore RB out of South Carolina. Kid will be an AP type back matched with Jamal Charles.

    May have to pick up a cornerback and a wideout in free agency.
    Where is the cat Merlin?

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      The cat is sleeping in my bedroom. Mathieu and Latimore? That’s rolling the dice a bit. Would you be OK with drafting a corner in round two and looking for a vet FA for ILB?

      • Danny W

        Oh if the right corner fell there. Xavier Rhodes maybe, or Jonathan Banks perhaps. I don’t know of any good FA ILB though. There are some decent corners out there though.

        • KCMikeG

          I agree on the FA CB options are better than the ILB. Really like Rhodes too. I’m going to keep promoting Andrew Jackson at SILB.

          • Danny W

            Kid’s got a nose for the football thats for sure. He could end up being a small school steal a lot like Carr was. I wouldn’t mind a bit if we drafted this kid.

      • Danny W

        Lattimore will heal up and become something special. Mathieu will fit right in on our Chiefing defense,,,, see what I did there?

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          Two major knee surgeries in two years. Teams have to be very, very careful with him and even with that, he is a huge risk. RB’s are a commodity these days. Why go for such damaged goods?

          • Danny W

            With a third round pick though the kid has the ceiling of Adrian Peterson. Tyrann Mathieu could end up being the next Sanders. One can dream I guess.

          • KCMikeG

            Check out Stefphon Jefferson RB/Nevada in the 5th round. Check him out.

    • Kyle ferguson

      Mathieu could be a steal in the third round if Andy could get his head on straight, you look at some of the guys he has picked up over the years he may just do it

      • cyberry

        I would like to have a 6 ft cornerback. With all these 6-3/6-4 receivers i don’t like the idea of the starting cornerbacks being 5′-9″ and 5′ 10″…oh and Javier Arenas is 5′-9″. In 2010 the Chiefs drafted all team captains..went to the pay-offs. Next year drafted “questionable” players (I’m a fan of Houston)..Declined since.. I would prefer to add high character players for now on..but that’s just me..

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          Yancey:

          I agree. WR’s are getting taller and a taller corner could help.

        • superman_25_58

          Ya I agree, I like David Amerose from NC STATE, he is 6-3/194lbs plays both CB/S. Amerose runs around a 4.46 40 time had 54 tackles – 5 INT – 11 passes broken up at CB in his senior year. I also like DJ Swearinger who we should be able to get in rounds 5-7. I believe he is a really underrated S from South Carolina, he had 70 tackles – 2 INT – 5 passes broken up

      • Danny W

        I would say Mathieu is the best corner prospect out there with out the dope scandal. Hopefully he comes to the combine clean for heaven sakes or he will go undrafted and get picked up by Cincy or Oakland.

    • Kyle ferguson

      Dee Milner, logan ryan, and Xavier Rohdes said to be the best cb’s in the draft so where would Tyrann fit in with those guys, don’t think he falls to the third round unless he has a bad combine he has the skills and I don’t think teams will scared off to much from the fact he got busted smoking weed, just has to ace an interview with one of 32 teams to be picked up

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      I love how you have QB as the top 3 needs. So funny and sad cause its true.

      • Danny W

        My motto this year is no draft unpicked and no dollar left unspent until we find our quarterback. Now if Dorsey and Reid would just return my calls so I can tell them! Surely they know….right?

      • http://twitter.com/Chr1sG3 chris grier

        What do you think Andy Reid could do with Alex Tanney? He could possibly be the Xfactor. He still looks exciting and if I remember during some the accuracy drills in training camp he was the most accurate. Thoughts?

        • KCMikeG

          I think they are really going to look at who we have hear before they do anything in FA which will shape our final draft. So question is when is the soonest possible time they would be able to see our impressive stable of QB’s (or would film suffice?) before they can start looking in the FA market?

    • KCMikeG

      Nice on the QB #1-#3! I have been supporting doing what the Skins did last year. Take Geno and Landry. I hate to be the one to break it to you all but I believe Cassel will be here next year. Reid and Dorsey both are adamant about looking at what we have here. Maybe they mean Stanzi and Tanney which means if one would work would leave us with Geno at #1 and a very bright future.

      • Danny W

        If it’s Tanney thats fine, but I’m done with Matt Cassel. Drafting two quarterbacks would be wise in my opinion Mike. No stone left unturned for a franchise quarterback.

        • KCMikeG

          I have liked Cassel and have gotten to the point to be able to see the good and bad about him. Even I am wanting change. Reid is a great coach to make a QB better but quick progressions is his biggest challenge and one of the most critical factors in Reid’s offense. My fear is Reid wants to trade down/out, save Cassel this year to set up a trade next year and go for our franchise QB next year. If this is true I’ll take Boyd please. Do you think Tanney or Stanzi will get a real shot?

          • Danny W

            Man hard to say. I’d like to see Tanney get a crack at it for sure. I don’t know how big his frame is but if he can make the reads and hit them accurately thats all it really takes. (Drew Brees)

          • KCMikeG

            Why is it everyone has given up on Stanzi? He played at a high level against substantially better teams, won big games and was a leader. I don’t get it.

          • Danny W

            I think the preseason scarred me off of him. Hey if he gets a shot I’m not going to complain I just have my reservations about the kid. Aren’t you from Iowa? You got a little homer love for him Mike? LOL. Just saying, I don’t care if he gets a shot I’m just tired of seeing Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn. I don’t think they should put all of their chips on Stanzi or Tanney either, they need legit competition.

  • Chief Hokie

    What do you think about that Rambo kid, the safety from Georgia? And I’ve heard some people mentioning we should play Berry at FS. What’s your take on that?

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Rambo is nice FS prospect. He is an option in rounds 3/4. I would keep Berry at SS, but I understand the argument for FS. He can play either position due to his versatility. I think it depends on who you pair him with.

      • Calchiefsfan

        I would love to have Rambo there with our 4th pick. We need safety depth. Those guys get injured a lot.

  • Calchiefsfan

    Alright, as it stands right now this is what I would like to see. First resign Bowe, Albert and Colquitt. That being said.

    1st pick Geno Smith

    2nd round Xavier Rhodes CB if not available David Emmerson CB

    3rd round Larry Wolford Guard. I really like Barrett Jones but no way he is available at this pick.

    Then let Dorsey work his magic and get a sleeper ILB, safety and another tackle.

    The only problem with this is I’m picking based on what I think is a need. Dorsey works on best player available so who knows what we’re going to get come draft weekend.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Cal:

      I like your first two picks. What is your thought process behind going guard in round 3? Are you looking for a starter or depth?

      • Calchiefsfan

        Great to hear from you Merlin. I was waiting for someone to comment on that pick. The thing is I’m not satisfied with our interior line play. Call me spoiled from the old Will Shields/Brian Waters/Casey Weigmann days. I watched our o line play well most of the time but against bigger, stronger d lines we got owned. That is unacceptable. No QB can play well if they are running for their lives. If we want to play with the big boys we need to address this. I was even tempted to put Barret Jones as the second pick and the best available CB for the 3rd pick. With Jones you get a starting guard or center. So yes, I think our interior o line is a weakness and it is crucial to our success.

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          Cal:

          Yes, you are spoiled! lol that was a line for the ages. However, your point is solid.I love Jones in round two. With the needs at WR and CB, I am having a hard time pulling the trigger on him.

          • Calchiefsfan

            It was great. Green had time to throw, our wide receivers had time to run their routes, big holes for Holmes and Johnson. What an offense! Those were the days.
            I have to admit I don’t share your urgency at WR, if we resign Bowe that is. I say we go get Wallace in FA. CB is another story. That’s a big need, second only to QB. That was really the deciding factor in going with Rhodes in the second and guard in the third.

          • Danny W

            I like Rhodes but I don’t think he will slip that far. There are some pretty good UFA this year though we could get and save a draft pick.

          • Danny W

            Ah but WR and Corner are pretty deep in free agency. I know you build through the draft but lets get a couple of guys huh? Mike Wallace maybe, DRC?

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          Merlin isn’t contributing enough articles. We need more Melin.

          • Calchiefsfan

            You mean somebody on this site actually has a life? Or do you think he’s just pretending?
            I agree, more articles Merlin!

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            Thanks guys. It’s been a tough year on many levels including the Chiefs. It’s amazing that Paddy and the other writers have been able to produce as much content as they have.

          • Calchiefsfan

            The last couple of years have been tough for a lot of people on a personal level. Let’s hope 2013 turns out to be a better year in many ways.

        • Danny W

          I tend to agree if you mention something like this over at AP though the list of negative comments will go fifty long on how our guys are looking good etc etc. I haven’t seen much other than Brady Quinn looking like he has one second to get rid of the ball or get into the bitch ball position. Run blocking isn’t bad but against power D lines like Oakland’s our line get’s manhandled and has for years. Would like to see some power blocking schemes get implemented to hopefully give Geno Smith some time.

          • Calchiefsfan

            Agreed, Oakland and Baltimore are 2 teams that push our o line all over the field. We need more beef in the middle. I was really bummed when Hudson went down. I was hoping he would have a good year.

    • KCMikeG

      Dead on the mark! I second the motion and add your sleeper in the 4th round Andrew Jackson SILB Western Kentucky who is everything we need next to DJ. He is the Thumper at 6’1″ and 262 with a 4.64 time in the 40. A VOCAL on the field leader and #6 on Walters list expected to go in the 2-4 so we might have to flip rounds with the OG pick. Don’t we get an extra 3rd round pick this year?
      http://walterfootball.com/draft2013ILB.php

      • Calchiefsfan

        I just started hearing good things about Jackson which means he’s probably already getting noticed by the NFL. Kind of like Michael Kendricks did last year. Let’s hope he is still available in the 3rd or 4th round. I’d love to get him and it definitely is a need.

        I’m not sure about the extra third pick. Time to do some research. Anybody on the sight know about this?

        • KCMikeG

          I was hoping he might stay on the low low but word is getting out. There’s a highlight of Saban praising him. He was a clear 4th rounder who is creeping into the 3rd as I speak. He has EVERYTHING we are looking for at SILB.

      • Calchiefsfan

        I just checked and as of now these are the Chiefs picks:

        Round 1 – Pick 1

        Round 2 – Pick 34

        Round 3 – Pick 63

        Round 4 – Pick 96

        Round 5 – Pick 127

        Round 6 – Pick 160

        Round 7 – Pick 191

      • Danny W

        I think we get a 3 round comp pick but I’m not 100% on that. I know it’s something for losing Carr.

        • Calchiefsfan

          That would be excellent. We need it.

        • KCMikeG

          I think that’s it a 3rd for Carr. That would make #1 QB Geno, #2 CB Rhodes, #3 WR Bailey, #3 SILB Jackson or OT Aboushi #4 OT Nixon or SILB Bostic, #5 RB Cierre Woods/ND or RB Stefphone Jefferson/Neveda #6 C Blaize Foltz/TCU (Kansas natve, character guy) #7 S- Ray Ray Armstrong (Huge upside w/ risk). What do you think?

  • chiefridgy

    QB QB QB

  • Jim Harper

    Merlin you obviously have the needs pegged and I love Barrett Jones too. However if we indeed get Geno with the first pick then I would love to get his favorite receiver, Bailey with the second pick. These two have been playing together since high school. Talk about having chemistry! AND he fills the deep speed receiver need. I really think Corner is the next most pressing need and then inside LB. I have great faith in Dorsey to find gems in rounds 5-7 and we may get some filled with free agency although Dorsey prefers building through the draft and I applaud that. We do need a veteran QB as a back up. I assume they will just release Cassel, to which I say bye bye Matt.

    • Lyle Graversen

      Seriously, if we draft Geno and Bailey I may literally pass out from excitement.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        Check the latest DraftTek mock ;)

    • KCMikeG

      Right on the mark Jim! Geno #1 and Xavier Rhodes #2!

  • Lucas Hampton

    The problem I see nowadays is people compare the incoming QBs to last years Luck/RG3-Once-In-A-Lifetime QB class, and from the stellar rookie season they have had, all incoming QBs are compared to them, and as a result will forever be seen as not good enough, in any other draft Geno would be the sure fire number 1 pick but thanks to Luck and RG3, who have both blessed the NFL with their talents and cursed it with setting a standard that only few can achieve, Smith and any other QB will now be seen as not good enough and carry that label through their whole lives. If the Chiefs draft Geno, I’m throwing a party, if not, there’s still PLENTY of talent left, this is a QB strong class despite what everyone says, me and my friend have done A LOT of personal research and we both agree that it is a QB strong class, certainly not as strong as others but still strong.

  • Daniel Mayfield

    KC NEEDS a QB! Chiefs get Geno, then they will be good. They have the offense players with the talent to “back him up” on his skills. Dexter, Bowe(if he’s kept), Moeaki, Wylie, Boss, and nobody can forget Charles! If Geno can keep his accuracy, along with all the other skills, then we have the QB that is good for the team! Skip the QBs in the 1st rd and there’s gonna be some fans hating the GM already.

    Great to hear from you Merlin! Great work, I agree with the needs 100%.

    The quarterback we need to draft is Tyler Wilson. This kid is everything you want in a quarterback. He has all the intangibles. Strong arm, quick reads, leadership and toughness. He took a beating all season behind a bad o-line. He will be a franchise qb, I just hope it’s for KC.
    That being said, Geno Smith or whoever Andy decides should have a decent shot at being a solid qb judging by what I have seen him do with qbs before.
    As for the #1 pick, trade down. Unless we don’t re-sign Albert and we use it on Joeckel.

      Even though there is no qb showing himself as worthy of the #1 pick, this can still be a really good draft.
