There are a lot of Kansas City Chiefs fans that would love for the team to pick West Virginia QB Geno Smith with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The problem is, it is doesn’t look like that is going to happen.
The Chiefs traded two top picks to the San Francisco 49ers for QB Alex Smith. Head coach Andy Reid has gone on the record as saying that Smith is indeed the starting QB for the Chiefs. Chiefs’ GM John Dorsey has also gone on the record as saying that the Chiefs will take the best player on their board and there is certainly plenty of debate on whether or not Geno Smith is the best player in the draft. Add in that there are rumors that the Chiefs might trade LT Branden Albert and you have a recipe for the Chiefs selecting one of the top two tackles in the draft in Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher.
Still, there are some (me) holding out hope that the Chiefs will somehow end up with Geno Smith on their roster (I know it is hopeless).
If you are still making up your mind on who you want the Chiefs to select, you should definitely watch former NFL coach John Gruden interview Smith on his QB Camp show on ESPN.
There was a Youtube video of the interview online but it got taken off of Youtube for copyright violation.It will air again on Saturday at 11:30 PM. It will also be on Tuesday, April 9th at 7 PM.
