There are always surprising things that happen in the NFL Draft as teams trade up and down, take players higher than expected and draft prospects that they weren’t projected to take. This year there has been a lot of talk about the Kansas City Chiefs being one of these types of teams as quarterback has been a heavily rumored position the front office may target.
While rumors are always fun, ESPN’s Adam Teicher reports that it just doesn’t make sense of the Chiefs to spend a pick on a quarterback this year.
They don’t have a second-round pick, having sent it to the San Francisco 49ers in last year’s trade that brought a quarterback, Alex Smith … They also have a developmental quarterback in Tyler Bray, so unless the Chiefs are ready to give up on him (and I’d be very surprised at that) there’s really no room for a quarterback like Murray.
Stranger things have happened though, but the need for a quarterback isn’t pressing with the Chiefs and drafting a young prospect high in the draft may result in making Alex Smith as disgruntled as he was in San Francisco — which was the reason he is now in Kansas City.
