12:31 PM ET 04.20 | At a press conference on Friday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey told a group of reporters that he has narrowed the candidates for the top overall pick to four players, according to the Kansas City Star. While Dorsey didn't divulge who those four are, we can make an educated guess. The Chiefs appear to need a offensive tackle after releasing Eric Winston. It should also be noted that they're letting current left tackle Branden Albert talk with the Miami Dolphins about working out a long-term contract while Kansas City has the franchise tag on him, perhaps readying for a trade. All of those factors would lead us to believe Eric Fisher of the Central Michigan Chippewas and Luke Joeckel of the Texas A&M Aggies are half of those four. The other two are a bit trickier. With Alex Smith in tow, it's a tough sell to think it's Geno Smith or any other surprise quarterback. The Chiefs were at the Oregon pro day in large numbers, so it would make sense if linebacker Dion Jordan is still on their radar. However, Jordan is an outside linebacker and Kansas City is starting two pro bowlers in their 3-4 defense at that spot with Tamba Hali and Justin Houston.

Go for the best athlete available if you don't see a direct match to your needs.

The bummer for them is that trading down isn't really an option. I don't think there is a clear cut exciting number 1 pick like there was a year ago.

Question is: Who needs to trade all the way up to #1?

All of the positions that could realistically be drafted #1 overall have solid first-round depth.

Word is the Vikes are looking at a wide receiver so they would probably go 8-11. No need for a 1.
