This is purely a musing. I don't think this would happen, but I'm getting bored thinking about drafting an OT, so my mind began wandering.
Here's the premise: What if the Chiefs just flat out don't want to pick at #1? So they don't.
This draft is relatively flat at the top, with no true consensus team changing player. And nothing says that Andy and John have to pick. so they pull a Vikings and just don't pick when their time runs out. The Vikings (whether purposefully or because of pure negligence) failed to get their picks in twice (2002 and 2003?), allowing teams to jump ahead of them.
But if the Chiefs just sat on their butts, arms folded across their chests, and yelled, "Screw it! Someone else can pay the extra $1 million for the first pick! We'll wait." what would happen? Would the Jaguars make a pick?
Last year, the difference between Luck's contract and RG3's contract was $1 million. I think Jax would probably say, "Hell no! I don't want to pay a million dollars more just because you jerks won't pick."
And then the Raiders are left saying, "Wait. It's going to cost me $1.7 million more if I pick first. So I'm not doing it." (because Al Davis is no longer in charge, I'm giving them credit for some semblance of fiscal logic).
And the delta between what a team was expecting to pay only continues to increase. Last year, the 6th pick received $6 million less than the 1st pick.
Likelihood is nil. But the ramifications could be huge. I'd love to hear the thoughts of APers on this "what if" musing of mine.
