2013 NFL Draft | Kansas City Chiefs are on the Clock
After being demolished by the eventual AFC #1 seed Denver Broncos, the Kansas City Chiefs became a number one of their own. They will hold the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. It is widely noted that this is the second time in five years that the Chiefs have put up a 2-14 season record. But wait…there’s more!
The need for a change to a winning culture runs much deeper than the last five years. Since Dick Vermeil left Kansas City after the 2005 season, the Chiefs have had two seasons over .500 (2006, 2010). While they made the playoffs in both of those years, they had only one season with double digit wins (2010). They are 38-73 in that span, with the home fans able to witness 21 wins. As great as those fans are, it has to be hard to stay warm in Arrowhead in December knowing that your team is likely to lose.
With black Monday for NFL coaches upon us, we should know soon the fate of Romeo Crennel and GM Scott Pioli. Regardless of who is leading the show, the obvious first step to a winning culture is at the Quarterback position. Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn have not sold themselves as a part of the change. Not in the starting role anyway.
In our first 2013 NFL Mock Draft, we slotted West Virginia Quarterback Geno Smith to the Chiefs. While we know his abilities are beyond the scope of what was presented to the world in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, watching Smith bumble around in the snow makes it easy to view him playing in December in Arrowhead.
