I'm of the opinion and the tackle positions are incredibly important. I think the Chiefs should have kept both Albert and Winston.
I do also, but I don't think either player has the talent of Joeckel/Fisher and I am in the group saying LT is no longer an elite position for NFL teams.
Albert has a lot of technique to learn and I believe he can learn to become a solid LT, but he burned bridges imo.
So, moving forward, I would look at Kyle Long, Dave Quessenberry or Jordan Mills -- guys that might be available in the top of the 3rd rnd and go ahead and invest in Geno Smith up top for the future.
