How to watch the NFL draft
Murray joins a quarterback room with Smith at the top of the food chain and Chase Daniel at No. 2. Coming off an ACL injury, Murray is a strong candidate to be stashed away in 2014.
Arm strength isn't among his strengths, but Murray was a gritty, competitive leader at Georgia who tallied 121 touchdowns to 41 picks over 52 starts. At 6-foot-1, he's not a big-bodied passer, but has shown well throwing down the middle of the field.
The pick gives Reid another arm to groom and some insurance at the position if the Chiefs can't work out a long-term pact with Smith. Still, if Kansas City truly wanted to revamp the position, they wouldn't have waited until Saturday to do so.
