Albert to the Chiefs at No. 15

With the No. 15 overall pick in the NFL Draft

The Kansas City Chiefs select…

Branden Albert, Offensive Line, University of Virginia.

Albert is 6’5” 309 lbs. and ran a 5.17 40-yard dash. 

The Chiefs got their guy. Earlier this week it was said they wanted to take Albert with the No. 5 overall pick. After Dorsey fell to them at 5, this draft is shaping up nicely for them. They still need a pass rusher to replace Jared Allen but they have so many holes it doesn’t really matter. The Chiefs also have a huge number of draft picks so trading a few away isn’t a huge deal. Albert should compete for a starting job somewhere on the offensive line whether it’s a guard or tackle. This is a bit of a steal for the Chiefs considering where Albert was thought to have been going in the draft. 

Details of the trade…

The Chiefs and Lions swap first rounders (17 for 15) and the Lions receive 3rd and 5th round picks from the Chiefs. 

Arizona is on the clock, Rashard Mendenhall must be getting tired of waiting.
