My problem with this scenario is that having the 1st pick in the draft wasn't a transformational occurrence. Sure we got younger and upgraded the LT position, but is that what prevented the Chiefs from winning in the past five years? Nope.

Having the first pick allows us to dramatically improve the talent level on this time. I oppose any move that doesn't make a major impact on the roaster. Going from Albert to Joeckel isn't that big of a change.

Now does that mean we have to draft a QB with the 1st pick? No, but I do think there are only two viable options, quarterback or corner. In both cases, one could argue that we can get a great talent in the 2nd round at one of those position. I agree, but to get the maximum impact of having the 1st pick in the draft I think we either have go QB in round 1, followed by CB in round two, or vice versa.

Selecting an OT does nothing for this franchise imo, unless you are happy being a .500 team. Could Foles be the man? Maybe, but its as big of a gamble as drafting Geno. So i'd take Geno in a heartbeat.
