The Kansas City Chiefs have been throwing up regular smokescreens in anticipation of next months NFL Draft.  The Chiefs who hold the #1 pick have made known to everyone who’ll listen that they have interest in Geno Smith with that pick. Smith for his part hope the Chiefs feelings are genuine and legitimate according to USA Today Sports.  ”I hope Kansas City is legitimately interested. I hope I go No. 1, but, hey, we’ll see,” Smith, generally acknowledged as the top quarterback prospect, told USA TODAY Sports Friday by phone from his Miami-area home. ”The Chiefs are bringing me in, so I’m going in there thinking that they’re interested (in me), because I am in them. “I’m just going to do what I’ve always done, try and impress them, just be myself and allow the process to do it’s job and get ready for whoever drafts me. I’ll be going Monday to Friday, working out for different teams.” Most pundits will tell you regardless the of rumors that Andy Reid sees some young Donovan McNabb in Smith, Reid and the Chiefs will not use that #1 pick on Geno Smith after trading for Alex Smith and giving backup Chase Daniel’s a three-year deal.
