The kid has serious talent. Probably more than anyone in the draft. He's raw as can be, but if you could untap his potential, he'd essentially be the good version of Dante Culpepper but with an actual work ethic. I've called him a mobile Roethlisberger for awhile and I think that is still his upside.
If, for some reason KC trades out of the first pick, don't be surprised if Manuel is a Chief next year.
Bring in Alex Smith for a year or two to allow Reid to groom EJ.
I see the draft falling one of two ways: Either KC drafts Geno with the #1 pick, or it trades with the Eagles and takes either Manuel or Wilson.
One of those two guys will be there at #4.
I think when all is said and done, with the proper coaching Manuel will be the best QB in this class. Out of the gate, Geno has a pretty big lead on everyone, however.
