    Even if Chiefs coach Andy Reid was ever interested in Matt Barkley, he has absolutely no reason to admit it now. The story was going around during the draft that the Eagles traded in front of the Chiefs in the fourth round because they thought Reid might have wanted the Southern Cal quarterback.

    I saw that and some are saying that Reid is being a politician, but I don't believe that's really the case. I believe Reid is being sincere on this one. The Chiefs had a need of a 2-down run stopping ILB and getting Nico Johnson right where they drafted him was a nice pick. Notice that they didn't draft Tyler Wilson or Landry Jones with that pick.

    The Chiefs had a pick 2 picks before that. If they were targeting Barkley, they weren't going to give the rest of the league a whole night to evaluate the obvious needs of the Chiefs and trade up to steal a player. Of Barkley was the target, they wouldn't have put themselves in that kind of position. Who was more likely to fall to them with the 2nd pick in the 4th? Barkley who still had to get through the Jags or Knife Davis who was considered a reach late in the 3rd? Barkley wasn't the target.
