It has been a strange strange day. The news on Phil Taylor broke and I'm pretty sure 80% of AP is now concerned about Phil Taylor, because of the concerning medical reports. I personally think the reports are true. Rob Rang is pretty thourough when it comes to NFL Draft news. I highly doubt the Chiefs take that risk on Big Phil.
Many of us are now trying to reset and figure out who the Chiefs can go with in the first round. Some now want Mississippi State OT, Derek Sherrod. Others want UCLA OLB, Akeem Ayers, even Brooks Reed is now being considered. There are many theories and wants out there, but there's one theory that not many people are talking about -- Quarterback.I don't know about you all but I have this strange feeling that Haley/Pioli are going to make an awkward pick at 21. Some signs are pointing towards Quarterback. Remember back to April 1st? Colin Kaepernick had a private visit with the KC Brass in KC. Not it wasn't an April fools joke. The visit was confirmed.
The story was first reported by NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora. According to La Canfora, Kaepernick “continues to merit first-round consideration,” and is the subject of “first-round buzz” roughly two weeks away from the draft.
Could this team be the Chiefs? We know the Chiefs have shown a TON of interest in Quarterbacks this offseason. Brodie Croyle probably won't be back, and the Chiefs need a guy to backup Cassel, and possibly take over for him once his contract ends
What do you guys think? Would you be upset at that pick? I think I would. That's just to much of a luxury pick for my taste.
