what i don't want to do is waste the value of the #1 pick on a QB that you could get anyway at, e.g. #7 and then have an additional 2nd round pick, etc.
what is so bad about this scenario?
trade with the Cards by swapping #1 and #7 in the 1st round where we take Geno plus we get Kolb and the Cards 2nd round pick?
Kolb can then help groom Geno and teach him Reid's offense, etc. and Geno can start later in 2013 once the O Line is stable and everyone knows who to block, etc. in the new scheme ; much better than throwing Geno in there to get his head taken off early, dash his confidence, etc.
Wait till next year!
The mantra of the Chiefs since 1985.
The value of the QB position is such that there will be at least 3 QBs taken in the top 10, and geno Smith will not be there at #7.
If the Chiefs were to trade with the Cards, the Cards will be trading up to take Smith or Wilson, and the one that isn't taken by the Cards will be taken by the Jags.
