NFL Draft 2013: Chiefs should be familiar with these 4 QBs

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Who will the Kansas City Chiefs pick No. 1 in the 2013 NFL Draft? For the 1,009th time, we try to predict just that.

Phil Savage is a former NFL personnel man who worked with Andy Reid in Philadelphia and now runs the Senior Bowl. He talked with Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison on 610 Sports earlier this week and laid out the options for the Chiefs next quarterback. Like many others, Savage is leaning towards the Chiefs finding their quarterback in the second round, and not with the No. 1 overall pick. At times when he spoke it seemed like it was a foregone conclusion that these weren't No. 1 overall pick candidates, but he did note things can change.

Here's how the quarterbacks break down for Savage, who ran the Senior Bowl last week:

Played in the Senior Bowl: E.J. Manuel, Tyler Wilson, Mike Glennon, Zac Dysert, Ryan Nassib and Landry Jones.

Didn't play in the Senior Bowl: Geno Smith, Matt Barkley

He goes through four of those quarterbacks....

"We haven't really seen Geno Smith played under center. Does he have the arm talent to play in that system? Absolutely.

"Matt Barkley has been in a West Coast system at USC for his entire four-year career, he'll know the nuances of it. They'll have to decide whether he's physically gifted enough to want to take. I don't think at the No. 1 pick but when that second round comes around for the Chiefs I think they're going to have a list of quarterbacks that they've thoroughly studied.

"I like Tyler Wilson for the system they're in.

"Ryan Nassib from Syracuse played for Doug Marrone in a West Coast style of offense, he'll be another quarterback they look at very hard.

"Those four names to me would be guys that at least right now those are four that every scout and every offensive coach in that building will be taking a look at over the next couple of weeks."
