So much happens during NFL training camp that you can hear conflicting reports about a guy in one afternoon. It's also true that much of what goes on translates very little into what happens once the season begins. Still in the latest Chiefs Buzz on the Star site, I was very happy to hear this:

Rookie defensive end Tyson Jackson played on the right side in some situations, usually when the Chiefs lined up in a four-man front. Jackson, this year’s No. 3 overall pick, went against Albert, a first-rounder last year, in those situations. Jackson appeared to be a handful for the second-year tackle. …
One consistent thing I've been hearing out of camp is how good Albert looks, so if Tyson Jackson is giving him a run for his money there is at least a shred of hope that the Chiefs might improve to like 1-6 (maybe 1-??, not looking it up) in drafting defensive linemen early in the draft over the last decade.
