NFL Rumors: Kansas City Chiefs’ Options at No. 1 in 2013 NFL Draft
No, the Kansas City Chiefs are not going to try and fight the rulebook so they can take Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. However, there are a ton of other NFL rumors that suggest the Chiefs will do this or that on draft day. They’re already on the clock with a slew of options and that’s a good thing for a team with the top pick…or is it?
The Chiefs desperately need a franchise quarterback to pair with pass-happy new head coach Andy Reid, but they won’t find one at the top of the this year’s draft. They might get lucky in the second or third rounds, but not with the top pick. However, they could get someone to protect their new signal-caller, whoever it will be and whenever he will arrive.
Texas A&M offensive table Luke Joeckel is the surest thing in the draft this year and he’s be a solid pick at No. 1 to make sure Kansas City’s passer stays upright. Alabama guard Chance Warmack is also an excellent choice, but he’s projected to go around No. 5 or later.
On the flip side, the Chiefs have been linked to the most interesting prospect in this year’s draft, Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, who is ranked as the top player on the board this year by many larger sports media networks.
There are some talented skill position players as well, like Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner, but his name hasn’t been floating around much as it pertains to the Chiefs and the top pick.
If I were Reid, I’d want Joeckel. He can’t get Clowney and there’s no quarterback worth taking, so Joeckel is his top selection unless the Chiefs decide to trade the pick, which could be their best option. Either way, we likely won’t know who the Chiefs take until their pick is announced on draft day, so enjoy all these rumors and the many more to come until then!

Breaking down Dri Archer and his role(s) on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster
It's amazing how much changes in one year. Last training camp, writers like me were simply gushing over the possibilities Dri Archer's 4.26 speed could bring to the Steelers offense in 2014. The only caveat was his size (5'8”, 173 lbs). To compensate for Archer's lack of girth and muscle and to best utilize his speed, getting Archer out in space, away from those big, angry defenders looking to throw him around like a rag doll, would be key to him making an impact in his rookie season and beyond. Will he find a spot on the Steelers 53-man roster? Read More
