To start this off I am sorry of crushing any and everybodies dreams, but the Chiefs will not draft a QB at all in this draft. We just traded for Alex Smith. Got Chase Daniel as a back up and let's not forget signed Alex Tanney and have Ricky Stanzi. Not to mention but in a post I wrote about a couple months ago I did say we were going to get Alex Smith and Chase Daniel. It will be a QB competition this year but only for the 3rd string QB. Tanney and Stanzi will battle it out for 3rd string. I'm thinking Reid wants to get the 2nd rounder back. If thats a trade down then thats what he will do. If it's trading Brandon Albert then they will trade Brandon Albert unless they can get a long term deal signed. Brandon Albert please get a long term deal signed. Then we will draft Eric Fisher due to his strength and is more athletic and has a faster 40 then Joeckel. Fisher can also play RT for now. and when and if Albert leaves he can switch to LT. Flexibility on the line is also more valuable than a pure LT. Right now there is a more pressing need at RT then LT. Who can play RT Eric Fisher. We also have Stephenson. The most pressing need for us is a big body DL who can plug the holes. a safety. and possibly a OLB. We fixed our CB's. We fixed our QB. We kind of fixed our WR's.
On that note I say we draft a DL either Star Loutelelei(if his heart check out) or Shariff Floyd. Andy Reid also likes to draft DL as I think everybody has seen posts about that I won't get in to it. It is Blasphemy to still say the Chiefs have a chance at drafting a QB. 3 players on the roster have not had a chance. These guys might be the next Russel Wilson or Collin Kaepernick or even the new Steve Young or Aaron Rodgers. We will probably never know. I don't care to much about that. What I care about is Alex Smith winning us games which he will do. Anthony Fasano is our #1 TE. Dwayne Bowe is a good receiver who you can just throw it up to who will go and get it. But Alex Smith is to accurate to just throw it up. Give the man a chance. Donnie Avery our new deep threat with speed. Is going to catch the ball. Jamaal Charles is going to catch a lot of passes out of the back field. I predict he has at least 2000 total yard. Alex Smith now has a running back who will rush for 100+ yards a game and probably catch that many yards to coming out of the backfield. We have a major upgrade from Matt Cassell. This guy is not a 2.0. This guy is an Alex Smith. We might not be excited because he will not throw the ball 60 yards down the field every play. but this guy will run out the clock. This guy will put points on the board. This guy will tire out the Defense give ours a rest which Matt Cassell did not. (I do wish good luck to Matt in Vikings and can win that position over Ponder). Instead of defending our rush all the time people will have to defend our air game now. Smith is great at checking down switching the plays at the line which will be required. We are now a balanced team who stand a chance at making the play offs next year. Alex Smith is a cerebral QB. The best kind of QB.
