Dorsey a Player Without a Position in 2009?

Glenn Dorsey was the Chiefs first-round pick in 2008, yet with the way Pro Football Weekly writes it, he could be a young player without a place to play in 2009:

Looking at the moves the Chiefs have made this offseason, it appears the team is preparing to dive into the 3-4 defense more quickly than originally thought. After bringing in a slew of veteran linebackers through free agency, GM Scott Pioli used his first two draft picks on versatile defensive linemen: LSU’s Tyson Jackson and Purdue’s Alex Magee. Although neither played in a 3-4 in college, each has the skills necessary to line up at end in the “30” front. And, from what we hear, this is the duo the Chiefs would like to anchor their D-line for the foreseeable future.

The question is: Where does this leave Glenn Dorsey, Kansas City’s 2008 first-rounder, who struggled last year at defensive tackle and is expected to switch to end in the new scheme? With Jackson already penciled in to start at one DE spot, it could mean that Dorsey will have to fend off Magee for the other starting job. Considering the new regime may very well be partial to the guy it drafted in Magee, Dorsey — more of a 4-3 type player — may face an uphill battle to remain in the starting lineup.
