The 6'6'', 306-pound left tackle from Texas A&M is the favorite to be the Kansas City Chiefs' No. 1 overall pick this year.
Joeckel would likely immediately become the team’s left tackle, with Branden Albert moving to Ryan Lilja’s guard position or leaving via free agency.
While Joeckel is a good player with elite footwork and quickness, the talk of him being a historic tackle prospect is a bit overblown. He seems susceptible to the bull rush, as was especially apparent in the LSU game against Sam Montgomery.
The overall lack of strength is worrying, as Joeckel relies quite a bit on superior athleticism and footwork. He rarely drives his blocks, but instead prefers to seal. He could fit in a zone-blocking scheme, but he is a bit of a finesse tackle.
He would be an immediate starter, but his ceiling has become overblown in this draft process.
