NFL Injury Report:
The NFL Draft came and went and Branden Albert is still a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. While a trade didn't take place, Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland told Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald that there's a chance the deal could still happen.
The Dolphins still haven't filled the void left by offensive lineman Jake Long, who signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis Rams earlier this offseason. While Miami didn't acquire Albert, they also didn't draft a player that will clearly fall into the left or right tackle position.
Ireland said that an Albert trade didn't make sense during the NFL Draft, but he told Salguero that he didn't want to say never when it came to reaching an agreement down the road.
"Yeah. Again, I never say never. I don't want to get
into the details of that trade right now when it could or couldn't happen done
down the road."
The Chiefs don't have a clear need for Albert any longer considering they drafted Eric Fisher with the first-overall pick on Thursday.

For those who didn’t read my work last year or the year before, I’ll explain that I do not give out a letter grade a day or two after the NFL Draft ends. I think that’s like grading students before they’ve even took the test. What I do, is review if the teams met their draft needs and if not, why.
I’ll be taking a look at every pick for every team, excluding undrafted...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. You wanted Matt Barkley. We get that.
We get that youd have been happy with Ryan Nassib, because he was universally touted as being a first-round talent that is, right up until the part where the first round actually happened. And, heck, wasnt Tyler Wilson supposed to fit, hand-in-glove, with a West Coast Offense?
But get this, kids: Between 1991-2011, a healthy...

In the local big splash of the draft, Eric Fisher, OT, from Central Michigan University goes #1 overall to the Kanas City Chiefs. Congrats to him. I recall someone on some network – I am on draft coverage overload – saying that this is the highest MAC player ever drafted by far, but I can [...]
