But, in reality, Kansas City’s interest in Tannehill isn’t about extreme infatuations or a plot to drive trade activity.
With Tannehill, the Chiefs are covering all of their bases. It’s that simple.
For the first time since Kansas City made sweeping changes to its football operations more than three years ago, the team doesn’t have to draft for need in the first round. Plenty of needs remain across the roster, but the starting 22 in vastly improved.
When it comes to choosing a player with the 11th overall pick, the Chiefs are position flexible. That’s why Tannehill could make a lot of sense.
