It will come down to who the Chiefs like the best but one of the LTs is going to be the 1st overall pick and the next one is going to be taken at the spot currently occupied by the Eagles.
I don't see the Chiefs drafting Joeckel or Fisher at number 1. For two reason. First Chiefs have their tackles LT Brandon Albert and RT Eric winston. You don't improve your team by not resigning your LT(whose pretty good) and drafting his replacement. ( you would like to address a weak area ) .
This clearly is a smoke screen as the Chiefs are probably looking to trade down with the eagles. (who need the LT more than the Chiefs)
I wouldn't discount the raiders from taking one of the top tackles if they are on the board. I would really be surprised if Raiders took a DT with their first pick. It will be a Olineman or the best pass rusher they like.(don't believe that Werner)
