There are built-in expectations for each and every player drafted. Whether they fail to meet those expectations or exceed them remains to be seen.
exactly, otherwise, what's the point of having the #1 pick if it doesn't matter where a player is picked? Yes, hindsight is 20/20 but there's a reason teams are alloted draft slots based on the previous season's performance. It gives a losing franchise a much better chance to bring talent in when you have "first pick" or first dibs on talent. This is just basic math. There are always going to be players who exceed expectations (Joe Montana was drafted in the 3rd round I believe) and players who dissappoint based on where they were drafted (Blackledge). But going INTO a draft, a team can only take they players it feels gives the the best opportunity to win.

Of course. But today, we don't have the benefit of hindsight. All we have are the scouting reports and draft positions.

Wait just a second: How is saying that he might become an average to above average player "writing him off"? How many second round QB's have become exceptional players in NFL history?

With a bust rate of 50% or more, I'd say that "average to above average" is a compliment.

So, everyone's at zero? No one should have any expectations for Eric Fisher or Knile Davis or even Geno Smith?

Again, I disagree. There are expectations based on draft position. You expect the number one overall pick to excel. You expect the #10 overall pick to excel. That's why they were chosen where they were chosen.

I really don't care about that, at all. I didn't view Smith as an NFL ready prospect and neither did 31 other teams at least once. If he develops into an average to above average QB, good for him. But his career, at this point time, has absolutely no bearing on the 2013 Chiefs.

And that's all I really care about.

(And I hate the Jets, so I have definite mixed feelings there. Part of me hopes he continues the Sanchez bomb trend so that team can stay in the sewers.)
And I don't really care about the "picks". First off, the Chiefs were bound to use a draft choice on a QB. From my point of view, they did that - they used one draft choice on a QB. They used a future draft choice for the right to get the QB they wanted.

I have no idea whether it works or not. But I can guarantee that I won't spend one minute thinking about Geno Smith or lament the Chiefs passing on him if he becomes more than a serviceable NFL QB.

At this point I wouldn't automatically put Denver over Houston. They did go into Denver and beat them last year.

As a whole, Houston is just as talented as any team in the AFC. Of course Schaub needs to to step it up in the playoffs, like Dalton.

I think the Bengals and Texans will be among the AFC's elite. Wouldn't be surprised to see those 2 and the Broncos with the top 3 seeds.

The league passed on Geno Smith because of his lack of leadership skills, lack of charisma and lack of maturity.

According to the league, those were reason enough to pass on him in the first round. That doesn't mean that he won't develop into an average to above average QB.
According to BET it was only because hes black

And to think that the Cheating Donx were in shambles 3 seasons ago. If you know what you're doing you can turn things around quickly. I think we now know that Elway is much better at running things than Fat Scott was...

That's about the most uninformed commentary I've read as to why Smith dropped. And to imply (if not outright state) that Russell Wilson dropped because he was black? What?

He dropped because he is 5'11, not because he was black. That guy knows nothing about football.
