It just looks like there could be some quality CB, WR or ILB that will fall to the 4th. Also, being within spitting distance of the 3rd makes it easier to trade back up if a good player is available there.

The point of my post wasn't to champion Cassel; just how little I want to trade for Alex Smith. I don't think he will be content being brought in as a backup again and it could cause problems. There are some veteran QB's out there, like Jason Campbell that can be brought in as a mentor without costing draft picks.
My only point is...

the Falcons gave us a 2nd round pick for Tony Gonzalez.

Name any 2nd round pick in the NFL (not named Colin Kaepernick) off the top of your head that has had more value than Tony Gonzalez?

we as Chiefs fans, for the majority, LIKED this trade, too.

In short, this board overvalues (and dramatically) later round picks. They are, like I said previously, MOSTLY good for the fact they give us 4 years of player control for players that cost NOTHING against the cap. Which is why a guy like Samie Parker will play for us for four years and then have no offers once his contract expires. They have value until their rookie contracts expire because they fill roster spots 30-52 which need to account for less than 15% of the total cap.

The value of those picks aren't the 1%'s like Jared Allen...
