There is nothing but mediocrity available via trade or FA, so we have to take the chance on someone with legit upside, and who is every bit the equal of the FA/trade lot.
New CBA makes it easy to turn and burn if a more appealing option appears, even if that's next off-season.
Again, I think it's too early to speculate when and where and how these guys will test out at The Combines. It wouldn't surprise me, at all, if there was no clear cut number one guy and if that's the case, I could see the Chiefs trading down for picks and possibly moving back up into the bottom half of the first round for "Their" guy.
FTR, I'm not stating that's what I want to happen, nor do I expect it to happen. But with a QB class that at this time has no clear cut "Savior", it's definitely possible, IMO.
