Outside his 40 time - his combine wasn't impressive. I've been hearing that Chris Weinke has been crucial in getting teams in need of a QB very interested in Smith , pre-draft. Supposedly Smith is showing video of Smith vs Russell Wilson and RGIII during their sessions at Weinke's training facility - IMG.
And all 32 teams are willing to listen to Weinke's insight. He stood behind Russell Wilson and tried to make anyone who would listen that Wilson was a viable starter.
Weinke sealed Cam Newton's fate as a viable no.1 overall pick. Weinke trained with Christian Ponder and Josh Freeman - both projected by experts to be 2nd round picks prior to the draft , both went mid-Round 1.
The Chiefs visiting with Lane Johnson isn't just for kicks....
More than likely Dorsey is wanting to make sure that 1 of the 3 - Joeckel, Johnson, or Fischer will be worth the difference of the trade down.
Although Smith doesn't have the pedigree of RGIII , this QB is so weak that I'd highly doubt the Chiefs get anything less than two 2nds for the trade down. The Eagles & Jaguars have very aggressive ownership. Neither enjoy losing because they don't have the QB of the Future on the field.
If Kahn wasn't patient with Mularkey, I doubt he even has Blaine Gabbert's cell phone programmed into his book.
Vick re-negotatiating should mean little-to-nothing. Kelly's offense could take 2-3 years to really see it's full potential. Ownership has patience , but might not want to be patient to see if 2014 produces a QB that fits Kelly's offense. Kelly feels like Smith would be a great fit and will insist on this deal on draft day.
