2013 NFL Draft: Geno Smith doesn't wow scouts, Matt Barkley a 'late first round pick'

Justin K. Aller

ESPN's Adam Schefter sees a quarterback problem in this draft.

If the Kansas City Chiefs don't have the No. 1 overall pick then they're destined to still have a pick in at least the top 3-5 teams. The Chiefs, at 2-10, are tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars with the worst record in the NFL right now. A tie at the end of the season would bring on the tiebreakers.

But either way, the Chiefs are going to be at the top of the draft, and they're probably going to be keying in on a quarterback.

ESPN's Adam Schefter recently talked about this on ESPN Radio:

"When you look at the draft there aren't any sure-fire guys that you can turn to and say this is a guy we're going to be rebuilding around.

"Matt Barkley is viewed as a late first round pick and who knows what he can do in his rookie year. Maybe a lot, maybe not very much. Collin Klein, late round pick. Geno Smith, it's not as if scouts are just completely wowed by him.

"So it's not as if you're going to get a sure-fire starter in the draft. You may. There may be somebody that emerges. A mid-round pick like a Russell Wilson that has been so great for Seattle this year.

"But you can not count on any quarterback in the draft this year rescuing your franchise the way [Andrew] Luck, [Robert] Griffin III and Wilson have this season."

The top two possible free agent quarterbacks? Michael Vick and Alex Smith.
