I didn't say that, now did I?
I'm just saying if all of the top 5 QB's are on the same level, and the top 5 ILB's are not, merely as an example, why wouldn't we go get the best player at a position we need and then take a very minimalistic hit and get our QB second?
Furthermore, you guys aren't even considering for a moment that the new HC and FO will draft a guy they like, not BQBA with the #1 pick.
What happens if the Chiefs braintrust falls in love with Bray over Smith/etc?
Do you guys want them taking Bray first, a round ahead of his projection? or would you guys rather they take him in the second and use that first on a guy who can start today?
We have a lot of metrics to digest until the draft, and you guys are automatically assuming that Geno is the #1 pick of the draft because we need a QB, and only taking into consideration that need.
You guys haven't even begun to hypothesize the idea that perhaps our new HC won't like Geno, perhaps he likes another guy. Perhaps that HC might see the value play here, and knock out two needs by taking his QB in the second, instead of the first.
