In his latest NFL mock draft, ESPN’s Todd McShay not only leads with his projection for each team, but also takes a look at multiple scenarios for each pick. Yes, there’s a familiar name heading to the Kansas City Chiefs with the top pick, but also a couple of other options for new GM John Dorsey.
Scenario 1: Draft OT Luke Joeckel
Scenario 2: Draft OT Eric Fisher
Scenario 3: Trade out of the top spot
You can read McShay’s full Insider breakdown here, but these seem like the most likely scenarios for the Chiefs. There’s still grumblings about Star Lotulelei or Dion Jordan moving into the top spot, though a tackle seems to fit the best.
If I were making the pick, I’d stay at No. 1 and take Joeckel. If Dorsey and Andy Reid see it as more of a toss up then finding a trade partner should be on the top of their list. Being able to recoup the picks lost in the Alex Smith trade while still nabbing a guy at the top of your board would be huge for this franchise.
