Chiefs fielding trade interest for No. 1 overall pick
Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey as well as head coach Andy Reid have been endlessly mulling over the top options over the past week, and have finally zeroed in on four players they are considering with the No.1 overall pick. But even so, John Dorsey has maintained that the Kansas City Chiefs will “explore every option,” especially if they receive an attractive trade offer for the No.1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft.
The Kansas City Chiefs have their eye on the two top offensive tackles in the draft - Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher. Either one could end up being selected with the No.1 overall pick.
But with Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher considered to be the cream of the 2013 draft class, other teams could be looking if they can come into conversation for either of the two offensive tackles. The Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals, San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, and Miami Dolphins are namely a few teams who are need of an elite offensive tackle.
Though the Miami Dolphins have been looking for a way to move up in the draft, they re-entered trade talks with the Kansas City Chiefs for veteran offensive tackle Braden Albert earlier Wednesday, as a security if they lose out to either Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher.
But the Kansas City Chiefs are also one of those teams who are in need of an offensive tackle. It is highly unlikely that John Dorsey would field an offer he’d consider as significant compensation to move down in the draft and risk losing out on either Joeckel or Fisher.
Yet the Kansas City Chiefs are keeping that door open until Thursday eveing, as John Dorsey indicated his phone won’t stop ringing with calls from teams interested in trading up for the No.1 overall pick.
