One of the biggest areas of need for the Kansas City Chiefs is quarterback but there doesn’t seem to be a QB who would be worthy of the top pick in the draft.
“There is no quarterback where personnel guys can definitely say, ‘He’s a first-round pick,’ ” Chiefs GM John Dorsey told Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. “There were so many inconsistencies in the collective group. There was not one guy that stood up and said, ‘I’m the guy in the position this year.’ There really wasn’t one clear-cut guy.
“There are too many technical flaws, scheme flaws. There are so many different variables that there are a lot of people all over the place on naming the top four or five guys and who those guys would be.”
More likely, the Chiefs will select a quarterback later in the draft — if they take one at all.
Dorsey said both he and coach Andy Reid would be in attendance at the workouts of most, if not all, of the top available quarterbacks.
“I think Andy is a really good evaluator of quarterbacks,” Dorsey said. “I want him and I to go to as many quarterback workouts as possible and actually set our own up.”
Dorsey said he expects at least two quarterbacks to be drafted in the first round because so many teams have a need. It’s a matter, though, of which ones.
Things could solidify in the next couple of months. The draft doesn’t begin until April 25. Meanwhile, the combine begins this week, followed by pro days on college campuses and then individual workouts.
