Their focus will likely be WR, TE, G, T, QB, RB. They most definitely need to draft another QB, even if he sits on the practice squad until 2015. Reid must continually work to develop QB's.
The thing about the DT position is that they keep bringing in guys and trying them out. They are obviously not completely satisfied with the depth that the Chiefs have at the position.
And I agree that they will have to look at an offensive tackle as they will most likely not pay Albert franchise tag money again. Stop gap year with him this season. But I think that Stephenson is pretty solid and will move into the RT spot in 2014 with Fisher moving over to LT.
Guard is the big position as Asamoah is just a guy and Allen is getting ate up like a soup dip sammich.
I still think that they'll want depth at CB. I'm not sure that there is much there beyond Flowers and Smith. Cooper looks promising to be sure, but two games do not make a career.
Fasano, Kelce and Duck McGrath seem to offer a pretty solid TE rotation (if they were all healthy), and I don't see them carrying a fourth just to carry a fourth.
And there is no chance in hell that they even begin to think about the QB spot unless Bray is a complete mess. And his arm and size alone dictate that he'll warrant at least two or three years in the system to see if he can be brought up to NFL level skills. If Smith doesn't get the long term extension, I'll eat my hat and Daniel is exactly what they signed him to be. No way they worry about the QB spot for at least another three years - and that's contingent on Bray elevating himself. Smith is easily a five year guy minimum, eight year maximum guy for the Chiefs while Reid is here.
