Russ Lande of the National Football Post reports that the Kansas City Chiefs are deciding between Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel, Central Michigan OT Eric Fisher, and Oregon DE/OLB Dion Jordan with the #1-overall pick. With 22 days until they make their selection, there’s no reason to decide on who they’ll take now, but whoever they do draft, it’s very likely it will be one of the two stud offensive tackles.

Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei has passed five more heart tests, with each resulting in a clean bill of health. The doctor who cleared Star writes the defensive lineman is “safe to participate in pro athletic… without restrictions.” At one time, Lotulelei was viewed as a contender for the #1-overall draft pick, but after his heart condition arose at the NFL Scouting Combine, that talk quickly ceased. Perhaps with a clean bill of health, he’ll be able to challenge for that top spot again.
