    Let's wait and see what Irish comes up with on Albert. He is not a Wake or Wallace, and is desperate to get out of KC, as is KC.

    Maybe the situation he is in. His team does not want him, no other teams appear to have interest, and where does he think he could go?

    Albert is not desperate to get out of KC. He just want some clarification on his status.
    Albert was given the franchise tag this season and reportedly is on the trade block. He said he wants clarity in his situation before he returns to the team. NFL Network's Steve Wyche asked Albert on "NFL AM" on Tuesday what he wanted to know before jumping on board with coach Andy Reid's new regime.

    "If I'm going to be traded," Albert said, "(I want to know) if I'm going to be there long-term. Right now, everything is uncertain."

    Albert said he hasn't "even thought about" if he will show up for mandatory activities. He was asked if he would be willing to play under the terms of his franchise tag despite not signing a long-term contract.

    "If it's something I have to do, I'll have to do it. But I'd rather not," Albert said. "I want that long-term commitment. But as you know in football, you don't have too much control of the situation. I want to play for the Chiefs, but I want that commitment long-term."

    KC is going to take a LT as the #1 overall pick. Albert plays LT. Can we connect the dots?

    If that LT is Eric Fisher, Albert can stay at LT while Fisher moves over to the right side. Fisher has already said he is willing to play RT as a rookie.


    According to Tony Pauline
    Sources tell me several position coaches for the Kansas City Chiefs prefer tackle Eric Fisher over Luke Joeckel....

    Our needs are straight forward: Premier players. With our assets this spring we need to target premier players. I would try to go 2-0, via standing pat at 12 and weighing our options as the early picks played out, and then look to move into the first round, or earlier in the second round, by packaging some combination of 42 and 54 along with other picks.

    2-0 is a great day. I've mentioned that before in relation to my betting. We should strive for 2-0. Two premier players, Pro Bowl types. Jim Valvano's think/laugh/cry is a great day and also quite steep. You're adding that extra hurdle.

    Albert is not a premier player. It would be the same flawed thought process that we've specialized in for decades. Sloppily patch this hole, just like we're determined to patch the stadium. Far more astute to allow that weakness to remain and hope something falls our way, while making darn sure we give ourselves the best logical and mathematical opportunity to acquire special talent.

    Every year you get the crap conventional wisdom that this draft is deep and strong into the late second round, or extends into the mid third round. Whatever. Subjective muck muck that must sound great to type out. Meanwhile, over a long sample the results spit out the same, that first round through early second round provides the greatest opportunity for a Pro Bowl or similar caliber player. We should invest our additional resources in 2013 along those lines. If we trade for this guy Albert, he's a talented pass blocker who was a prime pick several years ago, and in all likelihood has already spent his best years. A self centered player with back issues might surprise on the high end, but it's certainly not the favorite. More likely it's simply another B or B- player instead of C or C+, which doesn't do you any good.

    In a short game you might win with a pair of 9s. To win the league, stockpile aces.

    In the middle rounds, I would target the positions considered deepest. That is one aspect that seems to hold up. We blew it in the tight end draft a few years ago, and in the wide receiver draft last season we allowed T.Y. Hilton to slip past us, in favor of a tight end, even though there was a well known gap between the top rated tight ends and the next tier.

    I would welcome talking with you on all financial implications, here or on a different thread, if ya like. I just tried to make this thread on players and play.
    And a lot more don't fully understand the dramatically decreased need for all-pro LTs any longer, but that doesn't mean you don't discuss it. You simply cannot separate the factors.

    I made a delicious cake. There's cyanide in it, but nevermind that as most don't know how cyanide actually works. Instead, let's discuss how amazing the icing is.

    Ah...wow. First time you've ever seen an analogy, eh? Yes, you're right, I literally baked a cake with cyanide in it. Makes a ton of sense.
