So, an honest question - which player is better at their respective position than Geno is at his?
Which player was more productive during his time in college than Geno?
Which player has more upside at their potential NFL position than Geno does at his?
Which player possesses better traits for their position than Geno does at his?
I'll clue you in - nobody.
Not Starlite, not Joeckel (who wasn't even the best tackle on his college team), not Jarvis Jones, not Barkevious Mingo, not Dee Milliner, not Keenan Allen, not Kenny Vaccaro, not nobody. The top guys at their respective positions do not give you more for that position than Geno does for his.
The only guy that is potentially close in terms of what he offers for the position is Chance Warmack, and he's a ****ing guard. And the Chiefs already took two All-American guards (Asamoah & Hudson) recently. And I'd even argue that Barrett Jones was a better guard than Warmack was when Jones was playing guard his sophomore year and got named first team All-American. (And I'd also argue that Warmack also played next to Jones this past season as well as next to DJ Fluker - both players that were more highly regarded as NFL prospect than Warmack going into this season.)
Nope. It's Geno.
