Chiefs general manager John Dorsey told NFL.com’s Albert Breer on April 1 that the Chiefs are down to four potential possibilities for the No. 1 overall pick. Dorsey talked more about the Chiefs’ first-pick plans during a news conference Friday.
“You still have to give yourself some options,” Dorsey said, The Kansas City Star reported. “What you kind of do now is just kind of see how these four guys play and kind of watch the games as they’re played. You understand them as people, now watch them play their respective position.
“When the curtain is raised on Thursday, we’ll be ready. But right now it’s still ongoing and you never know what’s going to happen.”
While Dorsey didn’t say who the four players were, common sense would leave you to believe that Joeckel, Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher, Dion Jordan of Oregon and West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith are the players being discussed.
It would be a big shock if the Chiefs went in a direction other than Joeckel, but if they did, Fisher would be the most reasonable option.
We will find out in less than a week which player the Chiefs covet the most and, while they are trying to keep options open and keep us all guessing, all signs point towards Luke Joeckel being the newest player to put on a Kansas City jersey.
Denver Bronco defensive end Von Miller remembers a time when he was the highly touted Texas A&M star entering the NFL draft.
Miller’s collegiate success translated well into the NFL but now it is time for another A&M star to become the highest pick in program history.
Many believe A&M offensive lineman Luke Joeckel will become the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft going to the Kansas City Chiefs.
As Brent Zwerneman of The San Antonio Express-News writes, Miller likes the idea of facing Joeckel in a division rivalry matchup in the AFC West.
“If Luke goes No. 1 that would be great for Texas A&M, and it would be great for me in the division,” Miller said with a hearty chuckle about his old friend. “Because then I would get to whip his ass twice a year.”
Kansas City Chiefs’s fans have long yearned for their team to draft and develop their own starting quarterback. The Chiefs have the first overall draft pick this season and unfortunately, by all accounts, there is no franchise type quarterback worthy of that first pick in this year’s draft pool. Over the past several weeks, KCKingdom has taken a look at a couple a options for quarterback in maybe the third or fourth round, or even the second round, if the Chiefs can acquire one via a trade over the next few days. Mike Glennon and Ryan Nassib have already been profiled. Today, we will take a look at E J Manuel.
