That said, the backup QB pool is pretty slim (because I don't see Alex coming here as a backup). I'd prefer someone like Moore if he shook loose, but we could do a hell of a lot worse than Campbell.
And that's why you like him as a backup versus the first round starter he was originally envisioned as. Add to that he's had some pretty shitty coaching and opportunities in his career. He's as likely to develop positively under Reid as anyone. And I think he's got the tools to be a very good 2nd option/scout team guy for the Chiefs.
I don't want him starting, but I think he's a pretty good option at #2 and probably could be had relatively cheap at this point.
