2013 NFL Draft: If Kansas City Chiefs Select Luke Joeckel They’d Have Best Pair of Tackles in NFL
The Kansas City Chiefs hold the first pick in the NFL Draft and after the trade for quarterback Alex Smith is completed on March 12, the Chiefs could be looking at the best pair of tackles in the league. With a new quarterback coming to Kansas City, the popular opinion is that the Chiefs will be selecting Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel with the first overall choice in April.
If the Chiefs select Joeckel and retain free agent left tackle Branden Albert, they would surely have the best tackle set in the league. Heck, even if the Chiefs let Albert walk away they still have right tackle Eric Winston to pair with Joeckel, which would still make the Chiefs tackles situation the best in the NFL.
Of course, no one knows what the Chiefs will do but we’ll soon find out. Today is the day where the Chiefs must designate their franchise player, if they choose to do so, and who knows what the team will do with the first pick in the draft? Andy Reid is one of the toughest coaches in the league to predict so it’s difficult to figure out what he’ll do with the first overall pick but Joeckel seems like the perfect selection.
Now that the Chiefs found their quarterback, it only makes sense to protect him with a good offensive line and picking Joeckel would make sense. The Chiefs would not only have a great pair of tackles, they would also have one of the best offensive lines in all of football with Albert or Winston, Jon Asamoah, Rodney Hudson and Jeff Allen. The group would be able to protect Smith and open up holes for the explosive Jamaal Charles, who will be even healthier being two years removed from knee surgery.
The Chiefs sit in a very good position as of right now and they have the potential to field the best set of tackles in the NFL.
