01:59 PM ET 04.24 | The Kansas City Chiefs are set to take an offensive tackle with the first overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft. Which one they take will depend on whether they can deal Branden Albert prior to the start of the first round Thursday. Jason La Canfora reports that the Chiefs will select Central Michigan's Eric Fisher if they can't manage to trade Albert. If Albert is dealt, then Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel becomes the likely pick. Both Fisher and Jockel are projected to be excellent left tackles at the next level, and the Chiefs are clearly high on both prospects. If forced to play right tackle for a year or two across from Albert, however, Fisher's game is better suited to make an immediate impact, according to La Canfora. Though Joeckel may be higher on the Chiefs' draft board, they must not see much of a gulf between the two players. Both players are expected to be perhaps the first two players take in the draft, and if Fisher's skillset suits him better to lead the Chiefs' running game, then he could have his name called first Thursday.

I say keep Albert, Draft Joke, move Albert's fat behind to right tackle and make him play there. If not, the bench has plenty of room. See what that does to your earning ability for the rest of your career.

This is Andy Reid we're talking about. He doesn't believe in a running game.
