The Kansas City Chiefs have played the role of puppeteer entering the 2013 NFL draft. General manager John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid have essentially created a smokescreen, concealing their true intentions and sparking far more questions than answers.
The Chiefs have worked out every potential top pick under the sun. Many outsiders have pigeonholed the process as a ruse, but the new regime's offseason has been nothing if not atypical.
However, Kansas City's depth chart still reveals alarming holes that need to be addressed.
The franchise forfeited its second-round pick (No. 34 overall) in trading for quarterback Alex Smith. But, considering Dorsey's propensity for building teams through the draft, will Kansas City sacrifice the first-overall selection to resupply its collection of picks?
That question—and more of its nature—will circulate around Kansas City water coolers from now until April 25.
