The Kansas City Chiefs have the top overall pick in the NFL draft Thursday. The Chiefs may opt for an offensive tackle with the first pick, even though only two have been picked No. 1 since 1970. Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher are the best bets, and the team could also trade out of the pick.
