The Kansas City Chiefs will make former Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, according to Pro Football Talk.

NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline reports the Oakland Raiders are unlikely to draft Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, even if they stay put at No. 3. He also reports there’s “good chance” that either the Detroit Lions or Arizona Cardinals trade into the Raiders’ spot to pursue Oklahoma OT Lane Johnson.

Pro Football Talk is also reporting the Raiders are targeting Houston CB D.J. Hayden if they are able to trade down. Jason La Canfora is reporting they may even take him at pick #3:

"Several teams picking in the high end of the first round believe the Raiders, if they cannot trade down, will take Houston cornerback D.J. Hayden with the third overall pick, which would certainly qualify as the first shocker of this unpredictable draft."

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns have no interest in trading for Patriots QB Ryan Mallett, as the Pats want at least a second-round pick for Mallett, but the Browns don’t currently own a 2013 second-round pick.

A trade between the Miami Dolphins and Chiefs involving Branden Albert won’t be further discussed until both teams pick in first-round.
