His First Blunder?

New Chiefs GM, John Dorsey had some rather interesting remarks published in an interview with Adam Teicher, which you can read below. Dorsey is quoted as saying "there is no clear cut guy." Basically admitting the Chiefs would not select a QB #1. Nor does he hint that any player is worthy of the selection.

What did he gain by making these comments? Nothing. All he did was show his hand. The Chiefs, who have the worst QB situation in all of football (maybe even all-time) are not taking a QB #1. And the entire league now knows this. Let's say the AZ Cardinals have Geno as the top player on their board and were considering making an offer to take their guy. Would they now? NO, not with us. Unless Dorsey knows what every team's board looks like, there is no benefit of disclosing this.

Additionally, why wouldn't he have made a point to say "however, we feel there is at least one franchise caliber player in this draft and we're going to weigh all options, including selecting this player." Here, you don't show you're hand at all and get other teams wondering if you're going to take their player. Detroit GM could say,"might as well call KC and see what it would take to get that #1 selection." Dorsey would have leverage and could bargain for the best bid. Now, any team is going to call and low-ball him thinking he doesn't believe a player is worthy.

Some will say this is smoke and mirrors. How? The whole world knows we need a QB and every draft pundit has claimed this draft is weak at the top. Instead of refuting these remarks, in an attempt to add value to our position, our rookie GM confirms these beliefs. Our prize for finishing with the worst record in all of football has just been de-valued at the hands of the person holding it.
