05:42 PM ET 02.22 | With NFL Free Agency just around the corner and the 2013 NFL Draft in April, there are many questions about the direction that the Kansas City Chiefs will go with the first-overall pick in the draft. A lot of what Kansas City decides to do depends on the future of free agent offensive tackle Branden Albert. If the recent rumors in NFL circles are any indication, many believe the Chiefs will use their franchise tag to secure star wide receiver Dwayne Bowe for the 2013-14 season, which would mean Albert would hit the open market. At that point, Albert would secure a larger deal than the Chiefs are willing to give up, which would leave left tackle as one of the team's top needs. Luckily for the Chiefs, Texas A&M Aggies offensive tackle Luke Joeckel is believed to be one of the best and most elite prospect in this year's draft class. With the need for a tackle, Joeckel would be the most likely selection.

Throwing a franchise tag at a less than elite WR is not typically Andy Reid's MO.
