Quite a weekend for the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Romeo Crennel indicated the Chiefs would be "crazy" not to consider Peyton Manning and the team also talked to all three of the top quarterbacks in the 2012 NFL draft -- Stanford's Andrew Luck, Baylor's Robert Griffin III and Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill.

The Chiefs can interview 60 prospects at the Combine for 15 minutes apiece. All three of these guys were part of the Chiefs group of guys they interviewed.

The Chiefs are drafting 11th, which means those first two guys -- Luck and Griffin III -- almost assuredly will be gone. Luck will likely be picked by the Indianapolis Colts with the No. 1 overall pick and Griffin III very well could go to whoever trades up with the St. Louis Rams for the No. 2 overall pick.

And then there's Tannehill. He's obviously not Luck or Griffin III so the hype isn't as big but this is the one that has me most curious. The KC Star's Adam Teicher made a good point the other day -- the Chiefs are drafting one spot ahead of the Seattle Seahawks, who could potentially draft a quarterback. SI's Peter King reported that the feeling around the Combine was that Tannehill will go much higher than he probably should. That could be creating a scenario in which a team that needs Tannehill will need to trade up to the Chiefs spot.

So...anyone else find it really strange the Chiefs are talking so much about quarterbacks?
