4th best prospect according to the NFL.com draft grade? Nonsense! ChiefsCrowd told me that Geno is a late first round pick with no business in the top 5!

Sounds like Matt Cassel if you ask me. I guarantee you there is a Drew Bledsoe in this draft.
If they think Geno is worth the #1 pick, you might as well sit back and relax because this regime will prove to be just as incompetent as the previous one.
Lastly, a lot of teams play it safe and take the best player available and snag a LT. LTs never turn teams into instant contenders. That's why if Geno is the best QB in the Chiefs minds, he'll weigh heavier b/c of positional importance. Every single GM ever will tell you they draft the best player available. It's partially true AFTER you factor in the weights they put on each position.
If you truly live and die by the "BPA" attitude, then you'll never get a QB b/c they're always overdrafted due to extra weight put on the position.
Of course they're going to add more talent in rounds 2-7. But drafting a LT at #1 overall is not adding any wins, no matter how you swing it.
So what's more important, take the best player or make the team better?
