Kansas City Chiefs Draft Preview: Finding Perfect Fits at Every Pick
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports
The Chiefs have a new quarterback in Alex Smith, but a solid understudy can be found in the later rounds of this year's draft

Everyone is wondering what the Kansas City Chiefs will do on April 25th with the first overall selection in this year's NFL Draft.

One thing is certain: It won't be Leon Sandcastle. 

What most people seem sure of is that the Chiefs will not be selecting quarterback Geno Smith. And barring a trade of franchised left tackle Brandon Albert, selecting a replacement at left tackle will certainly spark some locker room drama in Kansas City this season if Albert is asked to change positions. 

Unfortunately, barring a situation where Albert is traded, the overall seven-round draft logic of selecting a player like Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher would be a waste of the first overall pick. Doing so would undoubtedly prevent them from addressing one or two other positions with far less talent available in the later rounds. 

On the following slides you will find the perfect combination of the right type of players to fill the Chiefs' needs, and the selection Kansas City should be able to use to get them. 

Chiefs' remaining needs:

  • Offensive tackle
  • Defensive line
  • Inside linebacker
  • Running back
  • Safety
  • Kick returner/wide receiver
  • Tight end
