The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine is underway in Indianapolis and it seems everyone, from former Chiefs general managers Scott Pioli and Carl Peterson to former Colts GM Bill Polian, wants to weigh in on what Kansas City should or shouldn’t do with the No.1 pick n the 2013 NFL Draft.
Polian talked with Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star and told the Chiefs beat reporter that Kansas City general manager John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid should be careful not to reach for a QB with the No.1 pick in the draft.
Like most other folks, Polian thinks going with the best available player, regardless of position, is the way to go.
What Polian did say was that the Chiefs have a great developer of QBs in head coach Any Reid.
Nobody develops quarterbacks better than Andy Reid. So rest assured you’ve got the right guy. Whatever decision he makes will be the right one. He’ll find a quarterback. It doesn’t need to be the first guy in the draft.
Now it all comes down to Andy Reid. A lot of Chiefs fans I’ve talked to really want KC to select QB Geno Smith No.1 overall. Yet most NFL folks we are covering seem to be indicating that the Chiefs should avoid taking a QB if he isn’t the best player on their board.
The good news, if you are in the “take a QB #1 camp” is that these same experts saying the Chiefs might want to avoid selecting a QB No.1, also seem to think the Chiefs will end up with productive QB play no matter what happens, thanks to Andy Reid.
I sure hope they’re right.
