The Kansas City Chiefs added two more players on Friday night in the 2013 NFL Draft.

After the third round wrapped up, Chiefs GM John Dorsey met briefly with the media. Dorsey touched on a number of topics, including the Branden Albert trade saga and his two new players.

On the Albert trade and the Dolphins:

"Well right now, all along it’s been an ongoing process. It will be an ongoing process until the end of the draft takes place. So we’ll see what happens tomorrow, right now it’s the same as it was yesterday. It will be continually going on and we’ll see what happens."

On whether or not he thinks the team’s relationship with Albert will be spiled if they are unable to trade him:

"No I don’t think you could say that. All along we have considered Branden a really good football player. What did we do? We laid a franchise tag on him. That doesn’t mean that we cannot begin conversation with his representative down the road. He’s a winning football player, that’s what he is."

On his two new players:

"What I think we did in the three players we have acquired, we have begun to address what we think are positions of need and depth and these players happen to be guys who can do something with the ball in their hands. With the exception of Eric, the two skilled guys today, they have the chance to be real players."

On if he thought there was a drop off in the TE position after Kelce:

"Yes there was. I think that if you didn’t acquire somebody like him it would begin to drop off there. He is a tight end that can effectively run block, I think he can stretch the field a little bit, I think he has good hands, I think he will add depth to our special teams. He’ll help us in all phases."
