[Kansas City.com] Three months have passed since John Dorsey was hired as general manager of the Chiefs. Most of his waking hours, not to mention those of the scouts, have been spent researching players available in the upcoming NFL Draft.
But Dorsey said Friday, six days before the Chiefs are scheduled to make the first overall pick in the draft, they haven’t settled on the player they would select. Dorsey did say the Chiefs narrowed the list of candidates to four, though he wouldn’t identify them.
“You still have to give yourself some options,” Dorsey said at his predraft news conference. “What you kind of do now is just kind of see how these four guys play and kind of watch the games as they’re played. You understand them as people, now watch them play their respective position.”
Dorsey also indicated the Chiefs would listen to any trade offers for the draft’s top pick that might come their way. That’s why the Chiefs might not rush to the podium with their pick once the draft begins next Thursday night, not necessarily to build suspense but in hope of receiving a strong trade proposal.
