They have too many needs, this year and beyond, to be trading multiple picks or future choices to regain the first-round selection they lost in last year’s trade for Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs have eight picks and need to use each one wisely. If anything, they should consider trading back in a given round for extra choices. — Adam Teicher
Which is something they haven’t done since selecting Cam Newton with the first overall pick of 2011. It won’t be in the first three rounds; it might not be in the first five. But expect the Panthers to take a chance on somebody to develop as a potential future replacement for the 28-year-old Newton. They have only two other quarterbacks on the roster — Garrett Gilbert and Taylor Heinicke — the latter of whom was claimed off waivers from the Texans. Claiming Heinicke lessens the sense of urgency to draft a quarterback, but the former undrafted player out of Old Dominion still is a project. — David Newton
Smith had a better year than Cousins did in 2017, but both players were in different situations. Cousins in Minnesota will be surrounded by more help, while Smith in Washington won’t get the same support he had in Kansas City. Smith will drop a few notches from his Chiefs peak. McCoy Cheap Baseball Jerseys and Hogan both have experience starting for the Browns, for whatever that’s worth.
Mahomes as a rookie last season didn’t get to do much with his big arm in games that counted, but he flashed and grew enough behind the scenes for the Chiefs to believe he can start in 2018. Henne and McGloin are typical backups, and neither is one Kansas City can trust to do much.
McCown was an ancient wonder last season with limited means in New York. Bridgewater slowly mended the gap in his road back to being a legitimate NFL passer. Then there’s pro-ready Darnold, the rookie No. 3 overall pick. That’s a good variety, and it will make for a great competition in training camp.
Trubisky is just beginning his upward trajectory with new coach Matt Nagy. Daniel regains his status as a solid backup for the Bears’ version of the West Coast after his brief Cheap Chelsea Jerseys return to the Saints. Bray worked with Nagy in Kansas City.
