The Kansas City Chiefs have the #1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft but despite their needs at the QB position, a QB might not be the pick.
Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt was on 610 Sports Radio this morning and when he was asked about the QB position and the draft, Hunt mentioned that there may not be a clear choice.
There’s not a clearcut QB, I think that you take at that position this year, necessarily.
Now before you all start to panic, I think Hunt is correct. For instance, last season, Andrew Luck was the clear choice and if he wasn’t it was only because Robert Griffin III was so good that the pick could have maybe gone to him.
As of right now, there is no slam dunk pick at the QB position. Most seem to agree that West Virginia’s Geno Smith is one of the best prospects but he doesn’t seem to be as sure as a pick as Andrew Luck.
At least not yet.
Keep in mind we are early in the process. The Chiefs will spend a lot of time evaluating Smith and every other QB in this draft. As we’ve learned in the past, draft boards look a heck of a lot different in January than they do in April.
Smith and the other QBs still have the combine and their private workouts ahead of them. My guess is someone will rise to the top and whoever that someone is will be given serious consideration by the Chiefs at #1.
