For touting Geno Smith. Yahoo Sports, for instance, say Dorsey and Co. are trying to pull a fast one by hyping up the West Virginia prodigy to trade up in the draft...This is too stupid. All Dorsey and Reid are doing is shopping their number 1 pick to anyone who will listen. There is no "fast one" being pulled here - as any NFL CEO will testify to. The press these days cracks me up.
Yeah, they'd be stupid to not do that. Firstly explore all options that can be taken at numbe 1, and keep everyone guessing. Even Indy brought RG3 in last year to check him out.
Doing my best to keep my sons memory alive!!!
The Chiefs could very well do a San Diego/Eli Manning type of draft. A team is dead sure the Chiefs wont take him. Stand pat and wait for him to fall down a bit. The could draft him and then trade him before a team like Arizona picks.
Then really they could just keep him. Alex Smiths contract is up in two years. What if Alex gets hurt or is the next Matt Cassel. It would not hurt to have Geno sitting there to take over in two years. Granted I would rather use that pick on an immediate starter, but the Chiefs could realistically do that.
