Only two scenarios are going to happen in the 2013 NFL Draft regarding our beloved Kansas City Chiefs. 1) The Chiefs will hold onto Branden Albert and take Texas A&M's left tackle Luke Joeckel with the top overall pick to fill a need short term (right side) and long term (left side). 2) Kansas City will trade Albert to a team for a second round pick and perhaps something more as well, and then draft Joeckel with the top pick to fill in at left tackle while Donald Stephenson holds down the right side. Think about it and look at the situation. General manager John Dorsey signed Dustin Colquitt and Dwayne Bowe to major contracts, Colquitt's being the largest of all-time for his position. Albert, a very good player but never a Pro Bowler, was franchise tagged. Nothing has been said from the media or either involved party that a deal is close. Even with a very tight salary cap that could be relieved by signing Albert to a long-term deal, nothing is happening. The Chiefs are going to trade Albert before or on April 25 and take a tackle with the No. 1 pick. Deal with it. I'm not thrilled about it, but could Kansas City's ideas be any more obvious? The Chiefs have done everything except erect a neon sign above Arrowhead Stadium saying "Albert: On the block!"
