What's the better move for Andy Ried and the Chiefs 1 pick?
 
Does Andy try to lure Vick or take a shot at getting Alex Smith and take a legit no.1 pick and see if Wilson is still available

or

Take Geno Smith no.1 overall

No way Reid brings in Vick. He wants to distance himself from that whole scene.

Reid's a very good evaluator of QBs and QB coach. I don't see him passing up a genuine stud tackle to anchor the line for a decade so he can draft a project who is, in reality, no better than a mid-first round prospect. That's all Smith, Barkley etc are.

KC isn't a year away from being a good team; they're a long way away. But they have some tools to build with. My bet is Reid has preached a bit of patience. Next year's QB class looks a lot better than this. I could see him bringing in a stop-gap FA and waiting on the franchise QB he needs. If he takes a QB this year, I don't think it'll be before the 2nd or 3rd round.

I've posted what I think their best choice is in other threads.

Trade down and draft the best QB available. If they have to use the #1 overall pick if the stocks of some QB's rises then so be it. It's part of KC tradition to neglect the QB in the draft and go after veterans in FA, it hasn't been effective for them.

Trading down would be the best option. But in this draft, I don't think any team will be willing to trade up to the #1 overall pick, and if they are willing, they won't be willing to give up enough to make it worthwhile for the Chiefs.
