Like most teams who hold the No. 1 overall pick in a down year for quarterbacks, the Kansas City Chiefs want to trade their pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Like most teams who hold the No. 1 overall pick in a down year for quarterbacks, the Chiefs are going to have a hard time doing so. Adam Caplan reports the following: "Multiple execs I spoke to in Indy suggested the Chiefs are seeking move out from the #1 overall spot regardless if they acquire a QB ([Nick} Foles, [Alex] Smith) or not." This tells us that the Chiefs are not likely to take a quarterback with the top pick. Sure, things can change, but it does match up with everything we've heard over the last few weeks. There aren't many folks out there still sending Geno Smith to the Chiefs in their mock draft. The problem with trading the No. 1 pick is that there has to be a trade partner. If there were a player at the top of the draft worth trading up for, wouldn't the Chiefs just draft that guy? Needs factor into it but the point remains: someone has to trade up, too.
Chiefs up for trading No. 1 pick, will have trouble doing so
