Well guess what? Recent NFL history suggests that's a complete fantasy. Recent Chiefs history is even more definitive.
If they bring in Smith, he WILL start. Bank on it.
Yep. If they bring him in, you can forget about a quarterback being drafted anywhere above the middle rounds. With Alex Smith, we won't be talking about Geno Smith anymore, or Tyler Wilson, or Matt Barkley, or even (thank god) Brock Glennon. We'll be talking - at best - about Landry Jones or Zac Dysert or Ryan Nassib (and this is assuming they aren't all overdrafted in the 2nd or 3rd), or more likely a late round flyer on somebody like Matt Scott. If they don't just eschew a draft pick altogether and stick with who we already have signed, whether that's Cassel or Stanzi or Tanney.
