And If they draft Geno #1 overall, he's going to start.
I see where you're coming from, but I feel that you'd be hard pressed to find a scout or even fan who thinks that it would be in the Chiefs best interest to start a raw Geno on the first day. Even some of Geno's biggest supporters realize that he isn't realistically worth the first overall pick but instead is just the best Qb available and no other position on the team needs an upgrade as sorely as the QB position. Therefore, I feel like all former trends regarding a number 1 overall QB should go out the window, because honestly, he isn't good enough right now to start day one and produce like you would expect from a number one pick. That's why I say let him develop and let Reid, Pederson, and supposedly Childress work their magic and turn Geno into whatever he is capable of being.
