Hi I'm Doug and I'm a draftaholic.
I'm also a Seahawk fan, used to look forward to every Seattle Vs. KC match up back in the days when we lived in the same division, also used to dread going into Arrowhead. But I am not here to talk trash or cause any grief. I'm just here to see what Chiefs fans think might be in store for your team this off-season.
Honestly I was shocked that y'all "earned" the top pick this year. Actually though KC might push for a play-off spot. From what I saw your roster is not totally barren of talent, well except at QB.
Lurking about this place for the most part y'all seem to rightfully be in QB or bust mode, even if this on paper seems to be a lesser QB class than in the past few years. Is your need at QB so great that you'd be willing to make a slight reach for Geno Smith? Or would a more play from day one prospect at a O or D line position be a better move? I'd still go QB myself, but do you think there might be other options, like an Alex Smith or a Matt Flynn although I don't think Hawks will easily part with him just yet. Not trying to make suggestions just want to gauge other QB options.
Also will guys like Bowe and Albert be resigned or not, could Reid taking over maybe change Bowe's mind about leaving etc.
anyways thanks for having me, I look forward to learning more about your current squad and the direction Reid could take it.
First off, welcome to the planet!
I think the overall opinion here is to grab Geno Smith, or whatever QB rises to the top. I'm in the camp of sit tight and wait to judge these QB's until all can be evaluated on an even field at the combine, and draft that QB. Several drafts have yielded "no QB's" until after the combine. No doubt though, Reid knows we are desperate for some quality QB play. IMO, Chiefs have a talented roster, if it can be supplimented in this years draft we may have something to be excited about next season.
Also my opinion, but it is shared by many on this board. Albert, Bowe and Colquitt should all be resigned. No reason to not resign a proven LT, WR and best player in Colquitt
when you're 16 million under the cap before
cutting the fat in Tyson Jackson and Matt Cassel. You're treading water if you let them walk. They are all solid, proven players and you'll have to replace them either in the draft or in FA and gamble that they are just as good, or better than the player they are replacing.
I can't understand the debate some people are having that we should take Luke Joeckel #1 who's not even a top flight LT by most accounts, but yet in the same breath, those people are arguing against taking a QB #1.
