I think this is a pretty darn good draft from a depth and talent perspective, and I think that there are some high level players.
IMO, Geno Smith is as good a prospect at the QB position as anybody that's come out the past ten years. His numbers/production/accuracy at the college level are absolutely ridiculous. He's prototype size, damn near perfect delivery, very good arm, experienced, etc. He's an easy #1 pick in the draft.
Think about the last draft when we took Dontari Poe at #11. There's two guys in this draft that are markedly better than him in Starlite Lotulelei and John Hankins. There's four cornerbacks in Milliner, Banks, Rhodes and Amerson who have incredibly high ceilings. A bunch of stud rush ends in Werner, Jones, Mingo, Montgomery, Moore, Jordan, Okafor, Ansah, etc. A couple of elite level guards in Warmack and Cooper. Some really nice ILB prospects in Ogletree, Minter, Te'o, Bostic, Johnson. A lot of really good looking receivers. The QB's are deep and experienced.
The only position that isn't really talented and deep is the offensive tackles.
The main problem is that you are coming off a class that featured the most hyped prospect in years in Luck and a lot of the rookie QB's did really well this past year.
I personally think it's a very good draft and the Chiefs should be able to get three immediate starters at the QB, CB and ILB positions.
