What should the Chiefs do with the No. 1 pick?

What should the Chiefs do with the No. 1 pick?

The Kansas City Star
For the first time in franchise history, the Chiefs hold the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. So for such a monumental occasion, The Star is asking everyone — well almost everyone — what they think the Chiefs should do. So far, George Brett and Rob Riggle have weighed in. Check back for more opinions as we track them down and add your own in the comments.

Quote:
• “I’d draft the best player available. I don’t care what position he is, I’d take the best player.”

| George Brett
Quote:
• “Unfortunately, this year’s draft isn’t quite as rich as last year’s. I would say get the best player available. Go Chiefs!”

| Actor Rob Riggle, an Overland Park native and resident comedian on Fox NFL Sunday


Quote:
• “I would try to trade down and get a quarterback later … Geno Smith.”

| ESPN’s Ed Werder
Quote:
• “They need a leader. They need a quarterback.”

| NFL Network’s Stacey Dales
Quote:
• “Luke Joeckel. He’s really a good player. He can play left tackle. You can justify taking a left tackle, a defensive end who can rush the passer or a quarterback (with the first overall pick). If Joeckel couldn’t play left tackle, and he was a right tackle, I don’t think you can justify it. It has to be somebody who fits that bill.”

| Gil Brandt, draft analyst for NFL.com and former Dallas Cowboys personnel director
Quote:
• “Can’t pick a quarterback. They’ve got to pick a lineman. They’ll be OK.”

| Herm Edwards, ESPN analyst and former Chiefs coach
Quote:
• “Knowing Andy Reid, I’d go after the best player possible. I’d wait on a quarterback. These coaches can turn Cassel around.”

| Former Chiefs and Royals groundskeeper George Toma, working his 47th Super Bowl
