The Kansas City Chiefs have given the Miami Dolphins permission to meet with LT Branden Albert. A trade could be coming through soon if these talks go well and would clear the way for the Chiefs to select a left tackle with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft.
That would finally clear things up a little more on at least the first selection in the draft. We don’t know which left tackle they have at the top of their board, but at least we know what position they are eyeing.
Eric Fisher. Luke Joeckel. Lane Johnson. Whoever they want.
One left tackle down and 2 more left available for other teams to fight over. Can one of those tackles last till the 11th selection?
A Branden Albert trade would get the Miami Dolphins out of the picture for a left tackle in the first round. We wouldn’t have to worry about them leapfrogging in front of us to select Lane Johnson.
The door is cracked open. We might get that left tackle after all.
