    Talks between the Chiefs and quarterback Alex Smith on a new contract aren’t proceeding very rapidly. So the Chiefs appear to be inclined to use a little leverage. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said that the Chiefs “will consider” taking a first-round quarterback, since they need to “keep long-term options open.” Do you hear that…

    Edited to add: And with our track record of picking QBs coupled with our needs and only 5 remaining picks, it would be even less wise.
    Savage in the 4th might be tantalizing though. If he is still there.

    I wouldn't gamble on it when we can keep Alex for at least 2 more years (with the franchise tag). We have too many bigger needs and not enough picks to gamble on a back-up QB. My guess is that we will eventually work out an extension with Smith, but if we don't, we can address QB next year and do much better than a 4th round pick.
