Kansas City Chiefs fans seem to be hoping the team select either QB Geno Smith or LT Luke Joeckel with the #1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
But one name that capture the hearts of Chiefs fans as the draft approaches is Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel.
Manuel spoke with the NFL Network at EA Sports’ Madden party over the weekend and was asked which team he wanted to play for. After giving the typical “every team” response, Manuel got specific.
“I’d love to play for Kansas City as well,” said Manuel. “I know they have the first pick and Andy Reid is the head coach there now. He’s brought up a lot of great QBs like Donovan McNabb. Whoever I get chose by, I’d love to play for them.”
Manuel also mentioned the Philadelphia Eagles as a potential fit because of new head coach Chip Kelly’s offense.
Manuel had been considered a later-round pick but after an impressive performance at the Senior Bowl, he is beginning to move up draft boards. Some experts think he may have solidified himself as a second round selection.
What do you think, Addicts? Do you want the Chiefs to consider Manuel?
