provided we still give due dilegence to Geno Smith. And if we deem that he is worthy of the #1 overall pick then you roll with it and draft Geno #1 as well.
Fantasy? Maybe. IMO, it doesn't have to be one or the other.
There is no chance in hell Smith will agree to go to KC unless he had some sort of guarantee they wouldn't be taking a QB #1 overall.
And it's not a matter of him being afraid to compete, it's about being smart and not minimizing his chance to start. Chiefs fans are drastically overrating their franchise if they think he would be happy going from a backup QB to a Super Bowl contender, to a backup QB on a team drafting #1 overall.
