Now we replace Albert with Joeckel and are still free to take either a QB, CB, OG or even possibly a WR at #16.
As for the RT spot, this is a deep FA market for OT's. One would assume we could find someone that is a upgrade in fit (better pass protector) there. Then there is Stephenson that could be the RT as well.
Yeah, I think the hole at RT is being exaggerated here. We drafted two guys in the 2nd and 3rd round last year who could man the RT spot.
Now if we lose Albert, that's probably case closed on the 1st overall pick. I think Fisher is just as likely the pick as Joeckel, but the pick would be all but certain to be one of them.
I think the Rams would be a good fit. It's just hard to see a team dealing a high pick to the Chiefs and then paying Albert, when there are more than a couple pretty good LTs already on the market.
