It's early October, and we should be talking about our 3-1 record (or 4-0), our amazing defense, Jamal's comeback player of the year potential, RAC's stellar coaching, and Pioli's brilliance in putting together a well balanced, deep rostered team.
Instead we're talking about Matt Cassel's poor QB play, and next year's draft.
It got me thinking. What if I'm wrong, and Pioli does decide to draft a QB in the 1st round? Who can we get?
According to cbssports.com, there are currently 5 potential 1st round QB's:
Matt Barkley, Geno Smith (dude just threw more TD passes in one game than Cassel has all season), Tyler Wilson, Tyler Bray, and EJ Manuel.
Right now, I don't care which one we get (but I do think Geno would look good playing behind center at Arrowhead), I'm just wondering who we'll be competing against to draft a QB.
The way I see it, there are only a handful of teams who will even look at QB in the first round next year. They are Buffalo, Pittsburgh (maybe), Arizona and Oakland. I mean, let's break it down:
NFC East: Romo, Manning, Vick/Foles, RGIII
NFC North: Cutler, Stafford, Rodgers, Ponder
NFC South: Ryan, Newton, Brees, Freeman
NFC West: Smith/ Kaepernick, Wilson/ Flynn, Bradford. Then Arizona has Kolb/ Skelton. They MIGHT look.
AFC East: Fitzpatrick (who signed a big contract, but has struggled ever since), Tannehill, Brady, Sanchez/ Tebow
AFC North: Flacco, Dalton, Weedon, and then Pittsburgh's Roethlisberger/ Leftwich/ Batch. Big Ben plays hard and takes a beating every year. They MIGHT look just for insurance.
And then there's our AFC West: Manning, Rivers, the give away all draft picks and money man in Oakland, and our dear Matt Cassel.He even overthrows his OWN HEAD!!
