Two CBS Mocks-Geno at #1

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/n...ut-DaneBrugler

1. Kansas City Chiefs

(2-14)
Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia: Shortly after Andy Reid was hired in Philadelphia in 1999, he drafted a quarterback second overall (Donovan McNabb) and although he received criticism for the pick, it turned out to be the correct choice. Selecting Geno Smith No. 1 would bring some of the same criticism by some, but it would give the Chiefs a talented quarterback to build around.

1. Kansas City Chiefs

(2-14)
Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia: Throughout their respective NFL careers, head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey have preferred taking the best player available approach on draft day. To do so in 2013, the Chiefs would be picking an offensive or defensive lineman here, none of whom is likely to significantly add to the team's win total unless complemented with better play at quarterback. As such, unless Reid is confident he can resurrect Matt Cassel's career or the team is able to land another veteran passer via trade or free agency, the team could ultimately be forced to draft a quarterback here. Smith is far from the "sure thing" that Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III were a year ago but possesses all of the physical traits to become an NFL star. Reid's success developing quarterbacks in Philadelphia, as well as Dorsey's ability to draft them in Green Bay, made them attractive hires in Kansas City. Make no mistake, selecting Smith would be both a gamble and a reach but to take a better player at a position of lesser importance would only guarantee more mediocrity.

11. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia: While Smith did not play the second half of the season at the level of top-ranked QBs in recent years, the 6-3, 220-pound senior nonetheless remains a legitimate candidate to wind up as the top pick in the draft. Smith improved his completion percentage and TD-INT ratio in each of his three starting seasons, culminating in a senior campaign in which he completed a sparkling 71.24 percent of his passes and threw 42 touchdowns against just six interceptions. More important, he has all of the traits scouts are looking for in a franchise quarterback.

Rob Rang originally had us taking Joeckel.

Brugler has had us taking Geno all along.

I'm not worried. There is always a QB that rises to the top before the draft. I have faith that will be Geno.
