The problem with this whole mess right now, is people don't understand what it is they are ranking, why one player is ahead of another, and so forth. One media outlet ranks guys based on Variable A, people scream at it. Another media outlet ranks guys based on Variable B, people scream at it. Another media outlet ranks guys based on where they believe they will be drafted based on team needs and fitment with said teams, and where those teams will draft. People scream at it.
So lets look at the big picture here. While Geno is the unanimous #1 right now, it isn't like he's head and shoulders above the rest, like Luck/RG3 were. This is going to come as a shock to people, but just because Geno is ranked #1 for QB talent in this draft (regardless how little the separation truly is) it doesn't mean he's a lock for the #1 QB taken in the draft, nor the #1 selection. For all we know, Wilson could be the guy who Andy Reid thinks fits our offense the best. Since there is very little actual separation between Wilson and Smith, Wilson could easily be the #1 draft pick. However, if the consensus of our FO believes Wilson will be available in the 2nd round, and is still THE BEST QB in their eyes for this team, they aren't going to spend a #1 draft pick on him. They'll be communicating with other teams to get a feel for where they rank Wilson as well, and might even make a move back into the first round to get him.
The Chiefs could pull a Browns move and go get their Star Tackle with their first selection, then trade back into the first and get their QBOTF with their second selection. Lets just hope it doesn't end up Brady Quinn lol.
Now, if I were to rank them in terms of the play I feel will fit into a Chiefs/Reid mold from the last 2-3 years, I'm going with this.
Smith>Wilson>/only two prospects worth a first rounder right now in my eyes/ > Bray>Barkley(ewww)>Nassib=Glennon>Manuel>life>universe>everything>Jones
Junk vs. Junk there, a debate for another thread. My 8 year old nephew could put a better analysis together
