With the NFL draft fast approaching, it is being reported that the Kansas City Chiefs have narrowed their potential options with the No. 1 overall pick down to four players. This according to's Albert Breer, who spoke with general manager John Dorsey on Monday.

Dorsey told Breer the Chiefs will make their final decision four days prior to the draft, and that he has been meeting with head coach Andy Reid three times each day to discuss the direction the team should go with the top pick.

By virtue of a tiebreaker over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City will have first dibs on this year's crop of collegiate talent. Though the four players the Chiefs are looking at were not disclosed, there is a strong sense of just who they might be based on how the offseason has unfolded thus far.

After placing the franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert, Peter King of Sports Illustrated has reported the Chiefs will listen to trade offers for the five-year veteran. Kansas City also released right tackle Eric Winston just one year after signing him to a long-term deal, so the offensive line could be the focal point at the top of the draft.

Is the Chiefs' interest in Geno Smith a smokescreen to drum up interest for the top pick?

The wild card of the potential options appears to be West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, however.

The Chiefs completed a trade with the San Francisco 49ers for Alex Smith and also signed former New Orleans Saint and Drew Brees backup, Chase Daniel. But Geno Smith was slated for a meeting with the team on Monday, adding a very interesting twist to their plans with the top pick (via

Dorsey also told Breer that trading down could still be a possibility, giving the Chiefs tons of flexibility leading up to the draft.

However this shakes out, expect plenty of discussion of Kansas City's plans with the No. 1 overall pick.
