Chiefs say they have No. 1 pick narrowed down to four options

The Kansas City Chiefs have been on the clock since the 2012 season ended.

In five days, they will have to make a selection.

But general manager John Dorsey, hired after the team’s collapse, says the Chiefs have it down to four prospects for the top pick in Thursday’s draft but they have yet to make a final decision. Most expect Kansas City to choose between Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher, another left tackle from Central Michigan, especially with the club actively working to trade Branden Albert, probably to the Miami Dolphins.

You still have to give yourself some options,’’ Dorsey said about not locking in on a player, according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. “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.

“When that curtain is raised on Thursday, we’ll be ready. But right now it’s still ongoing and you never know what’s going to happen.’’

Asked about Joeckel and Fisher, Dorsey didn’t want to compare the two of them side by side

“They’re both really fine football players,’’ he said. “This year the offensive line position has some true prospects in it.’’

By Thursday night, we ought to know which one the Chiefs like a better.
