Kansas City Chiefs Smart to Look at Geno Smith
When it was announced that the Kansas City Chiefs would host Geno Smith next Monday, many people started to make a big deal out of it. Why on earth would the Chiefs want to visit with him? They’ve already got a Smith at QB!
I’ll admit, I was one of those people right at first. But then I got to thinking – why wouldn’t the Chiefs visit with Geno Smith? He is the top quarterback prospect this year, and franchise QBs don’t exactly grow on trees, so why not bring him in?
Smith even called the Chiefs visit part of his ‘world tour,’ so KC is just one of the many teams in line to look at the talented QB. They’re merely doing their due diligence as the team with the top pick in the draft. At the same time, maybe they fool some other team into thinking they’re legitimately interested, and they get a nice offer to trade out of the top spot? That sort of thing can happen in the draft.
It’s just incredibly unlikely that the Chiefs would actually draft Smith, unless they wanted to deal him. That’s the only small chance there is, but even that’s a long-shot.
Kansas City does indeed already have their Smith. Alex Smith is going to be the man for the next several years in KC, make no mistake about it. There’s no use to put Geno behind Alex, there’s only room for one Smith at QB for the Chiefs.
For those reading into Geno Smith’s visit to the Chiefs, stop it. The team is just doing the right thing by looking at all of its options. No. 1 picks don’t come around often, and I don’t blame KC a bit for interviewing all the realistic candidates available.
