Possibility that Chiefs could draft a quarterback is nothing new

As he wrote twice previously before, Terez A. Paylor says it’s possible the Chiefs will take a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday. But the Chiefs surrendered two very valuable second-round picks for Alex Smith, whose contract expires after this season. If they draft a quarterback in the first round, it’s essentially a waste of both picks. That’s why it’s more likely the Chiefs will take a quarterback in the mid-to-late rounds.
