Are we all missing something here?



I was thinking to myself while surfing AP recently that there is no way that the Chiefs will take a QB with the #1 overall pick. I believe I may have even posted it somewhere myself, but is there really NO chance that the Chiefs take a QB #1 overall?

Out of all the options the Chiefs have with the #1 overall pick, drafting a QB would seem to be one of the least likely. If you factor in the FA moves by John Dorsey and Co. this year, then drafting a QB #1 seems even less likely. However, Is there really a 0% chance that we wont?

I am no cap expert, but I can add, and If I am not mistaken then we owe Alex Smith roughly $9M a year as well as $3M per year to Chase Daniel. Now $12M/year is not a crazy amount to have in salary at the QB position, but would the Chiefs be willing to pay a #1 overall QB pick money on top of that? Especially for a 3rd string QB?

John Dorsey said from the beginning that he wanted to Draft the Best Player Available at #1 . He then has backed that statement up in FA by filling the big majority of the teams needs in FA. With no glaring needs on the team the Chiefs can pick whoever they want without having to worry about who will play at any given position. This sets the Chiefs up to take the BPA(or BTA) for the #1 overall pick just like Dorsey said he wanted, but are we all just assuming that he doesn't have a QB rated #1 overall?

After Geno Smiths pro day, many believe he could go as high as the #2 overall to the Jags, or #3 overall to the Raiders. Geno has been the consensus #1 QB for a while now and his pro day could push him toward the top of the draft. Could Dorsey be thinking along the same lines?

The more I think about it, the Chiefs are only on the hook for 2 more years with Alex Smith, and Daniel is only signed for 3. Are Dorsey and Reid gonna pull an "Aaron Rogers" on everyone come draft day? All I know is that I don't feel as confident as before that they wont.
