Everything the Chiefs are doing at the moment is being dissected, as teams parse their words and track their movements for clues as to what they’re doing with the top pick.
But Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said it’s not a ruse, that he’s still working his way toward a decision.
“It’s not creating a belief, it’s the truth,” Dorsey told Albert Breer of the NFL Network. “We’ve said all along it’s a process, and that process will not be finalized, that board will not be set, until four days before the draft. That’s the way that whole process works itself out. There are different phases that you go through.
“I mean, right now, I just walked downstairs and we’re in a different phase right now. We’re going back as a group and assessing all the different positions.”
The Chiefs are working hard to keep people guessing.
Geno Smith was in for a visit, after they traded for Alex Smith and signed Chase Daniel.
And though most of the speculation has them looking at tackles after releasing Eric Winston and with Branden Albert’s future up in the air, they haven’t scheduled visits with top blockers Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher.
Neither Oregon’s Dion Jordan nor Florida’s Sharrif Floyd, the top defensive line prospects, are scheduled to go there either.
Dorsey said he had narrowed his list of potential top picks to four players, but he only gets to pick one.
Which one, he doesn’t want you to know. That is, if he knows yet.
