06:53 AM ET 04.22 | Among the NFL Draft storylines to keep an eye on this week include San Francisco likely looking to move or package picks, the jockeying for quarterbacks and and wide receivers, and the possibility of Branden Albert being traded to Miami. The problem for the Chiefs is that this move is actually counterintuitive for the Dolphins, who already let Jake Long leave for less than what Albert is looking to make. While Long has a longer laundry list of injuries (knee, elbow, biceps, back), Albert has also dealt with a back problem. To overpay for Albert and give up a second-round pick to get him would be pretty questionable for the Dolphins. Then again, the idea of having Jonathan Martin at left tackle could force the Dolphins to panic.

I think the fact that they are the Dolphins would be enough to cause them to panic.
