Maybe the Chiefs record will be bad enough to draft the top QB in the NCAA draft in April! Of course, we'll pass on a QB and draft a developmental O-lineman with lots of potential.

I'd put my $ on winning just enough games to put us drafting in the 5-7 spot,but we will still probably pass on a young QB so we can go dumpster diving again.

I think the Chiefs are completely capable of landing that top spot only to nab the best ILB in the draft. :p

We'll pass on a QB and draft defense. Pass rusher.


I hope we don't draft Barkley. He's Cassel clone.

At least Barkley starts for the team.

Can't wait for us to replace Cassel with Matt Flynn or Kolb.

This may be the year we actually draft QB in 1st round - with our new HC. Just in time to give Pioli 5 more yrs.

I don't follow college football, but I keep hearing that there are several good quarterbacks to pass up this year. It seems like it'll be an exciting draft for those teams who actually draft quarterbacks.

If you draft BArkley...you'll be sorry.

Geno Smith or Tyler Wilson.

Chudzinski or Zimmer as HC
DeCosta as GM.

And?

And?

Mark Castle did not start at QB in college. Barkley did and because of that will certainly be better than what is starting right now, even Barkley turns out to be a bad pick. That's his point, IMO.

And?

And you're comparing a 7th round, never started in college guy to another that will probably go #1 overall.

Now if you don't like the guy, that's fine. Just say he'll be no good.

But to say he's a clone to Matt Cassel looks pretty foolish. You might be the only person in the country who would say that.

If anything, Landry Jones is Matt Cassel 2.0

Slightly improved in all aspects, including hat placement, but its the same QB.

Chiefs will not draft a QB.

We'll be in perfect position to draft a 3-4 DE way too high, who takes 3 years to show any improvement whatsoever, and provides absolutely no pass rush. Its the Pioli Way.

People need to stop talking about Tyler Bray. He is not that good even on the college level. He only managed to complete 49.3% of his passes against the SEC last season.

Can't wait for us to replace Cassel with Matt Flynn or Kolb. Exactly. It'll be a castoff or retread from some other team.

My prediction;

We win 6 games this year putting us in a position to draft one of the top QBs in the upcomming draft crop. But we let Albert or Dorsey walk via FA.

So Pioli trades down, picking up an extra 3rd rounder, and drafts a DE or LT depending on which player walks.

And with that extra 3rd round pick he trades for...Ryan Mallet.

Bank on it everyone.

Well... Not that I'd like the move. But in their defense, let's not act like these are two guys who are busts. Kolb is doing pretty well right now and Flynn is an unknown.

But yes, I'd rather draft a QB.

If we draft a QB, lots of terrific QBs available. Not a big fan of Landry Jones or Barkley, but they're better options than what we have. Love Geno Smith and Tyler Wilson. If we're lucky, either (or both) Bray and Murray have great enough seasons that they declare. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if either of them did, as I think they could pass Barkley on the draft board.

Talk about cherry picking your stats. Lets just call it was it was. Last year he completed 59.5% of his passes.

I'm hesitant to even mention that because haven't we learned not to put too much stock into college statistics?

Matt Ryan if I remember right completed 59% of his passes his Sr year at BC.

The point is don't live & die by them.

Is the guy a projected 1st round talent? Yes. Okay then. He should be in the running for us among others.

It's a valid stat because unless he was playing a conference opponent he was playing cupcakes. Ergo when playing real competition, he blows. It's also a large sample size. It's just one stat among many. Other than having no look of having "it" it's not like he has led any kind of good offenses. All you have to do is watch him to know he won't be a successful starter at the next level. If we want a guy that puts up numbers against lousy teams we would just take the Houston or Hawaii QB every three years.

We should definitely pass up on Geno Smith. He can throw it and run it and is smart. We definitely don't want him. Hes the next wave of prototypical nfl qb's and a winner. Definitelyyyy dont want him.

^^^This. However, I hear that a certain QB from Iowa State might be available...:thumb:

For that matter, there are several DII quarterbacks who would make a more honest effort than Cassel.

We need to draft 2 qb's with our first 2 picks in '13 maybe even first 3...then the rest of our draft on corners
