There’s been plenty of talk over the last couple of weeks regarding the chance West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith is selected as the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. Obviously, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering Smith is being seen as the top quarterback from this year’s draft class and it appears the two sides will meet on Monday.
Smith will visit the Chiefs on Monday as he hopes the team will consider taking him with the top pick in a few weeks–even if the team recently acquired Alex Smith from the San Francisco 49ers. If anything, Smith would be a great addition for Kansas City as he could learn a lot from Smith when it comes to making the transition to the NFL–especially since Smith knows all about being the No. 1 pick.
Even if he did lose the starting job to Colin Kaepernick last season, Smith ranked near the top of the league in numerous categories in the first half of the regular season. Plus, Smith will most likely be in Kansas City for just a year or two–so the team is going to have to eventually think of another quarterback to build the franchise around.
Smith has shown plenty of potential over the last couple of weeks by impressing scouts and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he did end up going No. 1 in this year’s draft. Hopefully, Monday’s visit goes well enough where the Chiefs will express even more interest in taking the quarterback at the end of April.
