One thing is pretty much for sure, kc is desperate to trade down.
Let's assume kc trades down, this will affect a lot of things. Whoever trades up with kc is doing so in order to get a LT, not Geno Smith. So with kc trading down I'm thinking they may still draft a QB somewhere in the second round.
There are also other rumors that chokeland likes Geno Smith. All I can say is that If either kc or chokeland takes Geno Smith, I'll be a very happy camper. I'm actaully wishing kc just goes ahead and takes Geno with the #1 pick. That would be fantastic.
I wouldn't be. QB is one of only a few positions where picking one early has actually improved the team, historically. If Geno tuns out to be even close to average, he'd improve either of those teams quite a bit.
I'd rather they got rid of their perfectly capable LT and replace him with the #1 overall. No improvement.
