Kansas City Chiefs GM spoke today at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine.
The highlight of the presser, for me anyway, was when Dorsey was asked what position was the easiest to pick.
We didn’t expect to get much from Dorsey or Reid in their pressers this week. I would have fallen out of my chair if Dorsey had marched up to the podium and declared that the Kansas City Chiefs were absolutely committed to drafting Geno Smith with the No.1 overall pick. That just isn’t something that happens.
The good news is, I think we will be getting a better idea of what the Chiefs are thinking soon. Free agency is right around the corner on March 12th and before that, the franchise tag deadline hits on March 4th. If KC re-signs both WR Dwayne Bowe and LT Branden Albert, we will know that it won’t be very likely they will draft LT Luke Joeckel.
Then, once free agency hits, the Chiefs will almost certainly acquire a QB or two. It could happen via a trade or a free agent signing but what really matters is WHO the Chiefs acquire and if they get a QB via a trade, what they give up. If the Chiefs trade a second round pick for Alex Smith, they probably won’t take a QB at No.1.
If you didn’t get a chance to catch Dorsey’s presser on NFL Network, it will be posted in its entirety on KCChiefs.com.
