No elite in this draft.

According to Todd McShay and Mel Kiper there is not an elite QB in this draft. They went on to say that there wasn't an elite LT, DE or pass rusher either.
After seeing this I thought I needed to share.

So we finally are going to have a top pick if not the top pick and there is not elite talent available for us to pick from. How frigging depressing.
We should of drafted Tannehill last year like I wanted. We would be in a position to draft Manti Te'O. The best player in the draft this season.

That trend will only continue, not get worse.
Yup. The importance of the sport in general has grown by leaps and bounds over the last 25 years to the point where athletes that used to play baseball and basketball are identified earlier and earlier as football prospects and more specifically quarterbacks, receivers, corners and tight ends.

It's also how the college game and pro game is now played. A "spread" used to be a gimmick where now it's almost a base package and a big part of a pro offense. It also has a lot to do with the rule changes over the last few years as well, that is probably the actual catalyst of the new NFL. Quarterbacks used to be graded much higher if they were from a pro set offense, and still are to a degree, but that is lessening the more the wide open passing game runs the NFL.

Or do you mean like they said about Jamarcus Russel, Vince Young, Ryan Leaf, Sam Bradford, and Alex Smith?

There are MAYBE six "elite" QB in the NFL, and only TWO of them - the Mannings - were the #1 guy coming out of college and "sure fire" picks.

There are, however, around 12-14 QB that are upper echelon and capable of LEADING a team to a Super Bowl. Nearly all of them were picked in the first 35 and had knocks on them coming out of college.

SHUT. YOUR. STUPID. MOUTH.

P. Manning - #1
E. Manning - #1
D. Brees - #32 (pay attention here, because that's a first round pick this year)
Rodgers - #24
Roethlisberger - #8
Ryan - #3
Flacco - #18
Dalton - #35

You got any more names you think belong at the top?

How about...

Luck #1
RG3 #2
Rivers #4
Cutler #11
Smith #1

Any other teams you think have a chance to win the super bowl?

And so help me god, if someone says Brady or Montana...

There may be teams that have the luxury of holding off on using a high pick to draft a QB this year in hopes of there being a better QB draft class in the future.

KC is not one of those teams.

Look out because the skill level that he has is certainly John Elway-like."

Todd McShay's comments:
"I can't remember being in such awe of a quarterback in my decade of attending combines and pro days. Russell's passing session was the most impressive of all the pro days I've been to. His footwork for such a big quarterback was surprising. He was nimble in his dropbacks, rolling out and throwing on the run. The ball just explodes out of his hands."

And we bought it hook line and sinker

And that's just insane thinking. That's like folding with pocket 9s in Texas Hold'em when the entire table has checked before the flop. Smith, Barkley, and Wilson collectively form a very strong class of QBs. In terms of prospects, that is; we have no idea how this class or other classes will fare in the end. But right now I'd rank 2013's better than anything to come out in the last 10 years except for 2012's (Luck, RGIII) and 2004's (Manning, Rivers, Roethlisberger).

If teams want a stronger class than THAT, they're thinking like the Chiefs. And that's not a good way to think.

It isn't insane if a team isn't desperate and if their personnel people don't assess any QB in this year's draft as worth their highest pick.

What would be insane is for KC not to finally dive in and take a chance. Your overzealous hyperbole related to the ranking of this year's draft class notwithstanding, KC has nothing to lose and everything to gain by dropping their #1 on a QB.

I can't remember which Horseman of the Apocasselypse said this:

"If you don't yet have a franchise QB, and are in a position to draft one, you take the QB EVERY SINGLE TIME. No exceptions."

This is absolutely true. Manti T'eo (or wherever the **** you put the apostrophe) could be a genetically engineered mutant who shits marble and can rack up 200 tackles and 20 INTs every season. Does not ****ing matter. If he can't throw the football like a QB, I don't want to ****ing hear it.

If you're the Chiefs, Jets, Bills, Jags, Browns, Cards, or ANY team that does not have a true franchise QB, you say "Good luck, Manti" and pass on him. Take the QB. All the time. Every time.

Every team's in that position who does not have a franchise QB, gigglebutt. It's why it's so important that KC gets the #1 overall pick. If we didn't and a team like Carolina got it instead, you can bet your ass that other teams like the Jets are going to ignore Manti Te'o or Jarvis Jones. They're going to be thinking QB this year. And they would absolutely trade up to that #1 spot and nudge us out.

Are you really telling me that there are plenty of QB draft classes better than 2013's? I named you a whopping TWO. Give me as many as you can think of. Then tell me the odds that those teams that are "rationally" passing on a QB this year will be rewarded in future drafts when they are in the right position at the right time to take a QB in this ordinary QB class that's sooo much better than 2013's.
