So it makes a lot of sense for them to draft Joeckel who will be able to handle the left tackle job as a rookie and be their long term answer on the blindside.
Instead of addressing that desperate need, we think the Chiefs will ignore that and draft the pieces around that desperate need. Because priorities are stupid.
