According to Rotoworld.com, ESPN’s Ed Werder has reported that the Kansas City Chiefs are expected to draft Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick.
ESPN’s Ed Werder reported Wednesday that “most people around the league expect” the Chiefs to draft Luke Joeckel with the No. 1 overall pick.
Werder acknowledged there’s still a bit of uncertainty since the Chiefs have not negotiated with either Joeckel or Eric Fisher, but GMs and personnel men believe the former will go first overall. “This a player that GM John Dorsey has followed since very early in his college career,” said Werder. Added ESPN’s Todd McShay, “From what I’m told, the Kansas City Chiefs were absolutely blown away by Luke Joeckel in their one-on-one interview with him.”
This isn’t s surprise at all. I think the Chiefs have known for a couple of week’s who they plan on taking with the first pick.

Is 2013 the “Redemption Year” for the Kansas City Chiefs?

It’s tough to get too excited about Eric Fisher as the No. 1 pick, but it’s a solid fit and fills a need. Fisher may start his career at right tackle if the Chiefs hang on to Branden Albert, but Fisher’s future is definitely on the left side.
When you consider what Alex Smith did behind a solid line and a great running game in San Francisco, this could help the Chiefs turn...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The running joke around Kansas City at the end of last season went something like this: "The Chiefs are so bad" - pause for effect - "they can't even stink in the right year."
After going 2-14 to match the worst finish in franchise history, the Chiefs will have the top pick in the NFL draft for the first time. But there's no clear...
With the first pick in the Zoneblitz Team Blogger Mock Draft, Arrowhead Addict a week or so ago selected quarterback Geno Smith as the top overall selection.
That pick was mocked by a couple people who commented on the blog. And I’m pretty sure Patrick Allen, the senior editor at Arrowhead Addict, knew his pick wasn’t the correct one when he made it. But I think I understand...

There was one thing that was for certain--the Kansas City Chiefs would be taking an offensive lineman so that new quarterback Alex Smith could have a little protection. It was pretty much between Eric Fisher from Central Michigan and Luke Joeckel from Texas A&M.
And the first pick in the 2013 NFL draft is --drum roll please--Eric Fisher!
Word had spread about an hour...

The 2013 draft has to be the most unpredictable draft of the last several years, with few sure things and a whole lot of speculation. It starts from the very top of the draft, where nobody is quite sure what the Kansas City Chiefs will do with the first overall pick and it definitely includes what the Dolphins will do at No. 12.
