The 9ers having 15 picks (or whatever ridiculous number it is) is actually too many, especially for a team stacked with talent and little holes. You'd end up cutting half of them anyway (even some of them that look promising). Given that their first pick isn't until 31 their situation just screams "trade up".

By the trade value chart #14 for #31 + #34 is pretty close to a straight up trade (we come out slightly ahead but not by much). I'd take it. Let's make this sh-t happen Gettleman.

Smith is a decent player but for the money he'll cost, the 33rd pick this year AND a conditional pick between the 2nd and 3rd round next year? L O fuging L. You just got a guy that's thrown for 300+ yards 3 times in an 8 year career and didn't start to "get it" until he got an elite OLine and Defense. Also, hope KC has a Vernon Davis hiding on their roster somewhere.

Smith is an instant upgrade in KC and I see nothing wrong with this move. KC has defensive talent and now a solid QB. Add a couple offensive weapons and they will compete, especially with Reid. If I was a KC fan I'd be happy. As said nothing says they won't draft a QB, maybe they will but want him to sit. Or maybe Alex to mentor him. Whatever the case, there is no Cam or Luck or RG3 and there won't be a better QB FA they can pick so it's not a horrible move IMO. QB is one of the most important positions and they are keeping that in mind by doing what they have to.

Cassel was an "instant upgrade" too.

There were no QB's worth taking in this draft and KC panicked. A second is laughable. A second and a mid rounder is the Cheifs.

We sighed Jake Dellhome when he was 29 went to a SB that year..........


That's the exception not the rule. That rarely happens. They were better off just drafting their own guy and developing him

Are you saying the exception to the rule is that you rarely sign a backup quarterback at 29 and they take you to the Superbowl that year, or that quarterbacks who are 29 or older can take you to the Superbowl? Because for the first part of it, of course it is the exception. But there are a number of quarterbacks who were close to 29 or older when they won the superbowl.

Flacco this year was 28, Brees was 30 or 31 when he won, Peyton Manning was right at 30, Eli Manning was 31 last year, etc...........

Brees would have been the last guy to come in as a free agent and then lead his team to the Superbowl although it took him a few years to do it.

Panthers55 are you his agent or something?

I don't think Alex Smith is a terrible QB but let's not just completely forget the first 5 years of his career..

You misunderstand....

The point I'm making is 30 years old isn't old for a QB.

The first one clearly lol taking a qb from the cfl who was older and expecting him to take you to the superbowl is the exception

I have never heard of a team EVER having that many picks. I think they will be looking to trade up if they find someone they really like. Otherwise I could actually see them trading back and stockpiling more. That franchise is fuging legit.

3-5 years ago they were an embarrassment, just shows how quickly things can change when you bring in people that are strong at the top.

He's a slight upgrade over Cassel. Given that they have Reid there and the offense they'll likely run with Charles/Draughn & Co., it could be ok but they gave up way too much imo. An overall decent move but the trade is bad.

Funny!!! If he were not going to Reid in KC I wouldn't be thinking he will be good. He isn't the kind of guy who can prosper in any system. he has to have a system which maximizes his skill set. I just think that Reid knows how to do that.

Joeckel is the now the sure no.1 pick.

SF could move their 1st/2nd or both 2nd to move up and grab Vaccaro, DT or a WR.

I'd start talking with SF if I'm Gettleman. I'll gladly take both their 2nd rounders. Stock pile the 2nd round for us. Having 34, 44, and 61 (DT, WR, FS).


I like the way you think. We have too many holes for one player at 14 to fix. Would be nice to be able to fill several with that pick instead.
