The Kansas Chiefs hold all the leverage in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft.  They have a capable quarterback on the roster, so what they choose to do with the #1 overall pick is not of the utmost urgency. The Chiefs can draft Luke Joeckel, Shariff Floyd, Geno Smith or trade the pick to one of several teams who need a quarterback. Andy Reid is as shrewd as they come and he’s playing the game right now.  We reported last week that Andy Reid made it clear that Geno Smith was definitely an option for the Chiefs with the #1 pick. Reid could really like Smith, or he could be trying to get teams such as the Jaguars, Jets, Raiders, and Eagles to take the bait and offer picks for that #1 spot. Birds 24/7 via Ian Rapoport is reporting that Reid has ratcheted up his gamesmanship another notch, by reportedly comparing Geno Smith to a younger version of Donovan McNabb. Word from #Chiefs scouts: They’re fascinated by Geno Smith, comparing him to a young McNabb. They love how he throws. Need to study ...
4 Comments:
  • Andy Reid will run true to form and draft a quarterback to stamp his brand on, just like he did in Philly. The comparison to Donovan McNabb should be your first clue.
  • Then there must be a Super Bowl Puke in his future. A Super Bowl loss but a Puke none the less.
  • If he is so good why did Reid NOT pick him in the draft ??
  • Ding ding ding ding!!!! HELLOOOOO, the draft hasn't happened yet, what the hell are you talking about?
