The first indication that the Chiefs are looking to trade the No. 1 overall pick in next month’s NFL Draft has surfaced. On Wednesday, a report from NFL.com may confirm that the team is laying the foundation to get out of the premier picking position.
Word from #Chiefs scouts: They’re fascinated by Geno Smith, comparing him to a young McNabb. They love how he throws. Need to study deeper
The report reeks of desperation from Kansas City as they just acquired Alex Smith not too long ago. Do the Chiefs really need a quarterback after they tabbed Smith as the franchise QB? Probably not. And it’s likely they are plotting to move down as there isn’t a consensus No. 1 overall pick this year.
Since Smith’s pro day there has been quite a buzz about the quarterback and some teams have been notably linked to him as a possible destination. With the Jaguars (No. 2 overall), Raiders (No. 3 overall) and Eagles (No. 4 overall) all selecting right behind the Chiefs, a move to No. 1 overall might not be as costly as once expected.
