Jason Smith, OT, Baylor
|3. Kansas City Chiefs|
Drafter: ColteyesReasons for drafting: "While there are many needs for the Chiefs, the two that stick out most are getting to the quarterback and protecting the quarterback. So the good thing is Kansas City has the option of taking the best player available and plugging them in to better their team. With Aaron Curry already being taken by Detroit, and Chiefs fans thinking Jason Smith would be off the board before their pick. The Chiefs will have no choice but to take Smith to help give their brand new asset, Matt Cassell, some protection. Crabtree could also be another option here opposite of Dwayne Bowe, but I think protecting the quarterback is far more important. A pass rusher like Orakpo or Brown could be an option, but this may be a bit high for them. Also taking into account Scott Pioli loves to build his teams from the inside out, so the choice for the Kansas City Chiefs is Jason Smith."
